Gears of War - Best game ever? Review with images

AdvantagesCountless hours of variable online gameplay - Can't get board

DisadvantagesToo many people who quit online!!!

"...in the Xbox 360. It's........... == Gears of War == === Background of Gears of War === If anyone here is a gamer then you have probably heard of Gears of War, if you haven't then I hope you enjoy what I'm going to say. Gears of War was released on the 17th of November 2006 in the UK but as usual it was released 10 days earlier in the US, typical. Prior to its release it was the most hotly anticipated game on the Xbox 360 as most of the other ..." Read review

Gears of War - Top Game.

AdvantagesGreat offline and online content, awesome graphics.

DisadvantagesSome online.

"...a great read. -------------------------Background of Gears of War----------------------------- Gears of War was released in the US on the 7th of November 2006 and later released in the UK on the 17th of November. Upon prior release, it was the most talked about game, this was the ultimate game that every person should get once released, and that's exactly how it was. It sold over 3 million copies in its first few months of release, and ..." Read review

Pretty sturdy, these Gears of War Review with images

AdvantagesGorgeous Visuals, Fresh Tactics, Co-op

DisadvantagesGory, Short Campaign, a few stutters

"...caters to that large fanbase. Gears of War brings a few fresh tactics into the mix, coats them with gorgeous graphics and great cinematography, but it basically gives the shooter demographic what it primarily asks for: A chance to slaughter aliens with chainsaws and satellite beams. ***The Story*** Every bit about Gears of War feels like a good sci-fi war movie and before delving into the excellent presentation, let's take a look at the script. Extra-terrestrials ..." Read review

Buy me....NOW!!! Review with images

AdvantagesVery gory, fanastic graphics and plenty of original features

DisadvantagesPerhaps a bit too violently graphic for some, and swearing oooo shock horror!!!

"...game it is. We got Gears of War as part of the 360's deal. We had a choice of games and my selection was based on top marks from none other than my fellow reviewers of course! Great job guys this really is a great game and a fine example of the 360's next generation capabilities. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The game itself ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Well its one of those fighting games. You know bog standard save the world stuff. The only original concepts in this ..." Read review

Moving Through Gears, Going Through Motions

AdvantagesMind blowing aesthetics

DisadvantagesScratch the surface and it's the same old same old

"...stratospheric levels of hype surrounding Gears of War (a.k.a. GoW from here), I was pretty sceptical, partly because it looked a bit juvenile, and partly because I'm a whiney old sceptic. For me, the jury's still out. In some respects, it has the ability to slacken jaws with unfettered brilliance - in others it's firmly anchored in last-generation waters. These conflicting elements vie for your attention throughout the approximate ten hour duration, ..." Read review

Gears of excellence

AdvantagesBeautiful graphics and amazing enemies.

DisadvantagesI havent seen any.

"...this game is SUPERB. Plot - Gears of War focuses upon the soldiers of 'Delta Squad' as they battle to save humanity on the planet of 'Sera', against the alien force known as 'The Locust Horde'. You will take the roll of Marcus Fenix, a former soldier who is now battling to save the human race. You will be joined by several other soldiers along your journey, and when accessing co-operative mode, player 2 will take the roll of Dominic Santiago, otherwise ..." Read review

Gorgeous Grinding Gears Review with images

AdvantagesRaises the bar for console visuals, perfect presentation

DisadvantagesLight on story, some repetitive gameplay

"Gears of War sold one million copies within days of release making it the fastest selling game yet for the Xbox 360. Does this mean it is a real contender for Game of the Year, or is it merely a testament to Microsoft's marketing hype? The short answer is the former. Pounding action has you diving for cover under a constant hail of bullets that really hurt. Although the over-the-top blood splatters will certainly be too gory for some people's taste ..."

Top 360 Game

AdvantagesChainsaw Gun, Graphics

DisadvantagesClose Combat

"...that came out at night; Gears of War has some very similar creatures that attack in the dark, and seeing hundreds of them fill the sky is a frightening sight, and throughout the dark stages you have to constantly duck between light areas to stay alive. It’s one of the most unnerving parts of the game and I love it. The audio is also just as good as the visuals. Your squad-mates are constantly chatting with each other, and when they’re elsewhere ..." Read review

Time to turn the gears of war

AdvantagesJust Great to play

DisadvantagesCan't think of one

"Introduction Gears of wars is a combination of a great first person shooter and not only requires you to be a good shot but also a clever mind as you need to have one to outsmart your common enemy Storyline Imagine a enemy that is the stuff of nightmares and imagine no matter where you are or how prepared you are this enemy can strike you wherever and whenever it pleases, now imagine this enemy has only one goal in mind the destruction of all ..."

War hurgh what is it good for?

AdvantagesBreathtaking visuals, Excellent sound,

DisadvantagesA bit short

"Gears of war is a game for the Xbox 360 console and was released on the 17th November 2006. Previous to the games release there was massive hype that this was going to rock the world of gaming, these are my impressions. Firstly I have to say I didn't get caught up in the hype and didn't buy it on release, what I did do was rent it last week and purchased it 2 days later. When I got it home from the rental store and put it in the 360 I have to say ..." Read review

Lock And Load

AdvantagesLooks Amazing, Engrossing

DisadvantagesA Little Short

"...as nails soldiers known as Gears to save the day. A disgraced Gear, Marcus Fenix is one such soldier and he's under your command. He knows a thing or two about killing. Broken out of prison thanks to the Locusts he's got a score to settle with the bugs. Conclusion ========= Gears of War is essentially a shooter, and it really shows off what next gen gaming is all about. The power of the Xbox 360 is really on show here. The game looks and ..."

The reason to own an Xbox 360

Advantagesgraphics, gameplay, sound, immersive story

Disadvantagesdidn't make use of the headset for issuing commands to squad

"This review is based upon the game being nearly a year old now, and in this regard, I'm going to rate it in comparison to games that that are out now, such as The Darkness. You may think this is unfair, but GOW actually stands the test of time, and I believe will for many years to come. Simply put: "YOU MUST OWN THIS GAME". This is the reason to own an Xbox 360. If you don't own one, BUY ONE with this game NOW. I'm not going to bore you with the ..." Read review

Gears of War

AdvantagesGraphics

DisadvantagesShort Play Time

"Gears of War is short. I'll be perfectly honest with you on that front. It'll take you somewhere between ten to twelve hours to make it through the game on Casual, the easiest of the two diffculties available at the beginning. A third diffculty level is unlockable after completing the game. At £40, ten hours might seem like a waste, especially with the hype juggernaut backing it up. This is the Xbox 360 game to get for Christmas, according to the ..." Read review
