Product Details:

"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. "Gears of War" thrusts gamers into a deep and harrowing story of humankind's epic battle for survival against the Locust Horde, a nightmarish race of creatures that surface from the bowels of the planet.

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.

"Gears of War" unites next-generation technology with classic, emotional storytelling and a revolutionary tactical combat system, engrossing the gamer in a horrifying epic story of war and survival.

* 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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Favorite Franchise of All Time This was my second game that I got for my 360 after I got it five years ago and I remember picking this game up at GameStop and when I first put this game in my 360....I was BLOWN AWAY!!! This game had a HUGE impact onto me and I loved everything with this game as far as gameplay goes. Plus, I beat this game on a VERY memorable date, if you can believe it or not. I beat it on 1-11-11 and I kid not, that is the EXACT date when I beat it. You can replay this as many times as you want.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great Game, But Impossible Campaign The game is good for its time, but the 5th level is impossible, there are these indestructible things called berserkers and they destroy everything. The thing is, you have to kill one. Think about it indestructible locust, and you have to KILL it. It's impossible. Everything else up to that point in the game is great. Gears of war 2 is better.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from This Game was the Reason to Have a 360 Now I understand I'm a little late, but here it goes. This game is amazing! The campaign was great! I loved all the weapons, gameplay mechanics, co-op, the locust, blood and gore, dialogue, everything! Everything about this game is fun! The soundtrack is also amazing. The trailer of this game with the song Mad World is very cool. It describes the game. The online multiplayer, while a little dated, is still fun. The game modes are mostly the same, but hey, this game came out in 2006. I liked being able to host games and choose to be the COG or Locust. The maps are great, with the weapons scattered throughout them. Everything about this game is fun, it makes you want to buy the other ones.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Game Ever This is why you buy an Xbox. A game that is absolutely perfect in gameplay, characters you get attached to, weapons, and story. This is my personal favorite game of all of the Gears of War games. But I suggest picking up all 4.
