Gears of War
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.
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.
it is the best game and it gets better every time
it kicks butt and the guns rock it is gory but you can get rid of that and the story is so good it is one of the best games in the world.
the start of something great.
this is a must have. yes, i know that we have all become spoiled on call of duty. But the fact remains that this game is the start of something great. it was the first game that i played that made me go "white knuckle" on the controller. yes the gameplay was a bit slower than what you may be used to. but that was the point of it. when you run, you run like you have over 100 pounds of "battle rattle" on. when you shoot, it's visceral, and when you use your chainsaw bayonet it's more so. it's not the quick to please, " i guess i'll shoot some baddies" kind of game. it's the " holy god, i'm an enlisted grunt that is about to die". kind of game. if your the kind of hardcore gamer that you may claim to be. stop the self-rightous prattle and sit down, buckle up and hold the heck on for one of the best games ever made.
Gears of War: one of the best games ever
This game is amazing. It's one of those games you can play multiple times, and not get tired of it. The graphics are totally amazing, the storyline is insane its not the easiest game out for the 360 right now, the multiplayer is also pretty good (not as good as halo of course), and the overall concept of the third person gameplay is something not used very often. Sometimes changing things up a little bit in a game can really make a big difference in how good it is. For example, first person shooter games have been out for a long time and people have gotten used to them, so they have to now be really good like Halo to get a lot of popularity, but the gameplay in Gears makes people automatically want to play it to see if its any good. It reminds me of Resident Evil 4 a little bit because that also switched up the gameplay and look how amazing it was. All in all this game is one of the best games i have ever played so if you're thinking about getting a 360, get this game, it's worth your money.
BEST GAME EVER MADE!!! Gears of War is EPIC!!!
I remember my cousin saying to me that I need to buy a xbox 360 because of this game back in 2007. So I go and buy the 360 and Gears of War. I set up everything on my non hd 480p tv "bad move". Start playing the first level and think to myself "whats so good about it"??? My cousin tells me I need to buy a HD tv to see and experience it. So I go and fork out $1000 on a 32 inch lcd. Hook it up and POP!!!!!!! I could not believe it. It was amazing!!! The graphics was killler. I hooked up surround and POP!!! the sound was killer too!!! In my opinion Gears was the first true hd game. The graphics was a 10!!! The story was awesome. The characters was awesome. Everything I wanted in a game. I would have bought the Xbox 360 just to play this game. I took the day off work and played this game for almost 24 hours straight. And to play Coop made it even more fun. I can't say enough about this game. Gears of War 2 was great! And I am sure Gears 3 wiill be just as good. But their is something special about the first Gears that keeps me coming back to play it over and over again.
Excellent considering it was a 2006 game.
You guys for one have to consider the fact that this was a 2006 game. The graphics were in fact amazing for that year. I merely got this game and part 2 primarily for the story. i was satisfied with its gameplay as well as the graphics for the time being. I will admit the campaign was rather short and the weapons were a bit overpowered. I mean you practically get the chainsaw bayonet at the very beginning which is pretty much the best weapon in the game. i think they should have waited and rewarded you with this beasty weapon sometime later in the game. The weapon selection was also very sparse. This could have been better. But oh well you gotta save the good stuff for the sequels i suppose. And this was obviously where they introduced Gears 2 which was an amazing game. The improvements that were made...simply impressive. Haven't yet completed Gears 2 but i should be posting a review of that fairly soon. So far so good. Looking forward to playing with the add on that was included with the triple pack... as well as Gears 3 whenever it is released. :)
Gears of War...all thats its lived up to be
ok first of all i've been itching to get this game. all my friends have been yelling at me beause i just got a new 360, so i decided to pick it up, and like i said....it is everything ive heard and more. the only thing i didnt like was sort of the sound. you could tell when 5 locus were gonna run out of a building, or an emergence hole was coming. other than that i loved the storyline and it was pretty challenging. this was the first game i ever placed on a 360. i liked the one button control and once i got the hang of it it was great. im not one of the hardcore people who have to have everything like....HD TV.....SURROUND SOUND......but i did love the graphics....the only ting that botherd me was every once in a while a frame would get stuck for a fraction of a second.....or the subtitles wouldnt change but that wasnt really a problem. overall it was a great game and i cant wait for multiplayer( i dont have a network adaptor but im getting it soon) i would DEFINATLY recomment this without a doubt.
We needed Gears of War
In my opinion, Gears of War is one of the best games I have played. Campaign is pretty awesome!!! You start off in a cell and break out with one of you former teammates. You have a wonderful selection of weapons including........ The CHAINSAW Bayonet!!!!!!! It is the best weapon I have ever used in a campaign before!!!! The graphics are really good for 2006!!! They still look good today! The campaign is fun and it is a good amount of time! If you buy Gears of War campaign is the first thing you should play. Multi-player is good too. It has a good system, fun game modes, etc. But remember, Buy GOW for the campaign. This game is definitely worth your money and you should gather your money, and go out and buy this game! Gears of War is AWESOME!!!!!!!
I bought this game after watching a friend play it. It looked very good so i just had to pick up it up. I get home and throw it in the 360 and off I go I thought. I went straight to multiplayer because that is my favorite part of 360 games and it took like 10 minutes to find a match and this is midday when I thought more people would be on. I guess not. So online will take a while to find a regular 4 v 4 match. Another thing, you will get owned really badly your first and probably the next 5 times you play against people. It will take a while for you to get used to these controls too. As for the campaign mode, it was really exciting at the start and just died down. Toward the middle the challenge was lost and shooting the locust from the ground became way too easy and I had the rest of the game beat in about an hour. So unless this is just a must have for some reason I'd say just rent it, then you will have beat the game by then and you will get annoyed in online.
