Gears of War
Its seems sucky at 1st but it gets better kind of.
I picked up the game when i went to a local gamestop with just 7 dollars. it was pretty cheap and well you get what you pay for. Its no Call of duty but it does get your attention. there are speaking parts which kind of bore me as do the characters. The game play is alright and you get use to it after a while. I would recommend this if you're low on cash and want a new game it gets sort of addictive after a while believe it or not .
chainsaws on guns works
This is a sci fi take on the cover based third person shooter that has a great story. The graphics of the game hold up well for being so old and playing the game co-op is the best way to experience it.
Great Game for $3
I just recently got back into playing Xbox again, and this was one of the first games I picked up at Gamestop. I had played a little bit of Gears before, but this game blew me away. Even for 2013 the graphics are still pretty good, and the combat system is really remarkable. The game is challenging enough to keep anyone interested. I've already bought GOW2 and 3 and plan on playing them soon!
Edge of the Seat Experience
I'm a casual gamer and am playing this for the first time now. Enemies can pop up anywhere and they aren't stupid. They charge, put out suppressing fire and try to flank. The use of cover is great and the bad guys use it as well. There's no map or way to tell where enemies are until they start firing at you. In my opinion this game is fast-paced compared to games like Assassin's Creed, Fallout, Red Dead Redemption and Grand Theft Auto. In those games, you can take a rest in safe areas, but in Gears of War it seems you always have to be alert. Check this game out.
Playing alone is alright. Playing with a partner is the real fun. Whenever I hit the pause button I get a static annoying loud sound. I returned the game and got another on and it did the same thing. Other than that, the game seemed boring playing alone, but got real fun with a partner. by the time I finished the game, I was like wow this is short, but I wish it was longer.
What can I say that hasn't already been said? If you have an Xbox 360, this game must be on your shelf.
Unbelievable game, got it when it first came out and I still enjoy it big time. If you haven't played it yet and enjoy third person shooters (TPS) then you definately have to snag this one. At 19.99 for the first one new or 2.99 used, or just get the combo of one and two with all the dlc for it in the double pack for 29.99 new either way it's a great deal. Go pick it up and enjoy the chainsawin fun and alien warfare!!
Dont Get This
I got it and it was really boring just didnt catch my intrest, if u want a good shooter or action game get call of duty or the legend of zelda way better.
very good game can not wait to play next game.Hope #2 is just as good.Has good controls and game play good thoughout game.
good for its time...
ever since this game came out I have loved the gears of war series. this game obviously isn't as good as gears 2 and 3 (mainly because of horde). but like it says in the title it was good for its time. a solid campaign, different than call of duty and especially, heads flying off. now you don't need to play this game to play the second and third but I would recommend it because some of the dialogue in 2 links to this game. This game also has good lasting appeal, so definitely a game worth getting
