"Coolest game EVER!!!"
5 stars"

Everything about it is great, best 3rd person shooter yet (equal with gears of war 2)

"AWFUL!"
1 stars"

Ill admit, its fun at first, but thats only because of the thrill of a new game, but trust me, when all you do is duck behind cover, shoot, duck, shoot, duck, shoot and then occasionally shoot without ducking (for the truly adventurous) you get a bit bored.

Its extremely repetitive, i didnt even bother finishing it. The elusive “chainsaw gun” that is so famous with GOW isnt that much fun either. By the time you get close enough to use the chainsaw on an enemy loaded with guns, grenades and explosives your as good as dead because they kill you before you can even start it, and more often than not, the chainsaw “revs” which means you do everything perfectly, dodge all the bullets jump infront of your victim and it just coughs and smokes, at which point you get killed.

Boring, repetitve and the only enticing element of the game, the elusive “chainsaw gun” is a useless ornament. Dont buy it

"Totally wicked"
5 stars"

Such a time absorbingly awesome game great fun good variety of weapons to choose from, has an interesting story line though bit blank in places but the game itself makes up entirely for that. Has a fair amount of environmental interaction and good variety of enemies to kill in several different ways. Its a must own 360 game and provides hour of locust killing fun. Not to mention your main gun has a built in chainsaw for those up close and personal encounters.

"Enthralling"
5 stars"

Violent, bloody, brutal, gritty, awesome. Gears of War is still an amazing game to this day, fully utilizing it's potentials and running straight into the fight with a f*** you and a raised middle finger! The graphics are still stunning, the guns great fun to use, the enemies awesome to shred and the story… err let's skip that part.

Gears of War is a third person shooter that uses the cover system but this game uses it good. It is amazing to play online, challenging and rewarding. You'll find plenty inside of this game, oh and did I mention chainsaw bayonet?

"True Classic!"
5 stars"

This game is super addictive. I've had it since the day it came out, and still play it once or twice a week. Finished all the campaign achievements awhile back, but still play the online multiplayer over xboxlive and still love it.

The graphics are still awesome even now, and the gameplay is great. Yeah there are alot of people exploiting glitches and things, but the host usually removes them pretty quick smart.

Description

Blending the best of tactical action games with the best of survival horror titles, “Gears of War” is the first game developed by Epic Games exclusively for Microsoft Game Studios and the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system.

In this third-person tactical action/horror game, players live and breathe the role of Marcus Fenix. A disgraced former war hero, Marcus seeks personal redemption as he leads his fire team against an onslaught of merciless warrior fiends. Gamers immerse themselves in an experience so intensely emotional and gut-wrenching that playing will be like controlling a blockbuster action movie.

“Gears of War” utilizes the breathtaking new Unreal Engine 3 to create cinematic, high-definition visuals for a gaming experience that truly ushers in the next generation. Gamers will experience beautifully rendered interactive environments and characters so lifelike they appear to be made of flesh and bone. The next-generation visuals create a world in which the tiniest detail is vivid in the largest battle.

  • Engaging and disturbing cinematic story. Massively scoped worlds, memorable characters and an epic story line play out like an intense and unsettling blockbuster action film. Dramatic in-game camera work and a compelling story bring the brutal, emotionally charged experience to life. Gamers control Marcus Fenix and his fire team as they pit advanced human technology against the overwhelming and horrific Locust Horde.
  • Fire team co-op action. All game modes, levels and scenarios are designed for cooperative fire team play (AI or human). For the first time, AI teammates are indiscernible from human players. They move intelligently, take orders effectively, and seek cover and defend themselves when necessary. Gamers will experience richer cooperative gameplay than ever, through unique characters that require cooperation to survive.
  • Unprecedented visuals in next-generation gaming. “Gears of War” ushers in the next generation with unprecedented visuals. The Unreal Engine 3 technology pushes high-definition visual designs and brings out the smallest details in the largest battle. Gamers will experience a rich dynamic world with an unprecedented level of detail. Characters come to life with unbelievable model quality and a physics-integrated animation system that has them truly reacting intelligently to events as they unfold around them.
  • Hyper-realistic and intense combat. In “Gears of War” the battlefield is a lethal place – to foolishly stand out in the open is to die. To survive, gamers can create and take cover using interactive and dynamic environments, suppress the enemy with blindfire, and use their weapons and teammates to outwit and outfight their terrifying enemies.
  • Next-generation Xbox Live action. “Gears of War” will embody the next-generation Microsoft Xbox Live experience and extend it even further. Gamers will be able to experience individualized matchmaking, view player statistics, earn player achievements, customize their games, and build and personalize their gamer profiles.
