This is in my opinion, along with many others, the best game 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...

Gorgeous Visuals, Fresh Tactics, Co-op

Gory, Short Campaign, a few stutters

With the original X-Box clinging to life early-on solely thanks to the success of Halo, it was surprising to see the 360 lacking a decent shooter for the first year of its release. Just before the competition joins the fray, however, Epic Games caters to that large fanbase. Gears of War brings a...

Our first game and what a 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...

“Gears of excellence”

Beautiful graphics and amazing enemies.

I havent seen any.

Only one word can sum up this game. Yes it's brilliant, yes it's fantastic...but it's REVOLUTIONARY. This is to date, the Xbox 360's most graphically impressive game, possibly on ANY next-gen console. It drags the player into the world of Marcus Fenix ,battling his way through the Locust. And...

Mind blowing aesthetics

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

Despite the 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...

Light 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...

“Top 360 Game”

Chainsaw Gun, Graphics

Close Combat

When I first found out about this game I didn't really pay to much attention to it. It seemed to me like another boring old tactical shooter that is typically crowding up the Xbox brand. But when it wasreleased and I saw some trailers of the game and the interesting survival and horror aspects of...

Graphically excellent

Novelty can wear off

WHAT IS IT? Gears of War is a crunching, banging, dark, blood-and- gore splattered, peek-a-boo-I'm hiding but I can see you bullet fest. You are Marcus Fenix, a hardened soldier freed from the brig to fight another day. And it is a long, hard fight too, during which you face a wide variety of...

Short 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...

Breathtaking visuals, Excellent sound,

A 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...

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...
