by Todd101010 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 10 out of 10 by O 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.
Rated 9 out of 10 by dogfighter33 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.
Rated 7 out of 10 by COD4RULEZ OKAY GAME!
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.
Rated 3 out of 10 by Green Man and the all-famous Boston Creamer Not that great...
Good day everyone... This game was horrible. Not only do you not find out where the Locus came from... you don't find out ANYTHING about the characters even when they hint at their mysterious pasts. Me and a friend played this game on co-op and we were entertained with the fighting. But I would NEVER play this game alone or recommend it to anyone who knows what a real game should be like. You never even find out why you do any of the things you do. All this game is, is an excuse for "cool" cut-scenes which last about 20 seconds a piece. I can only assume people who love this game have never played another video game in their life, because it is such a piece of crap. I highly suggest you don't listen to you friends if they tell you this is "THIS IS THE CRAZIEST GAME I'VE EVER PLAYED!", because that's what I did... and now I want to throw-up in their face. If you are reading this because you want to find a great game to play, I HIGHLY recommend Dead Space.
Rated 10 out of 10 by jakedarkman Dont think about it just get it!!!!!!!!!!
This game is one of the best games ever made in all ways it starts off every major city has been attacked from under and billions are killed and a man named marcus fenix who is a fighrter in the war goes to save his father but he is already dead so as punishment for going against his orders to help father he is sentenced to 40 years in prison but after time things change and he gets out ,play the game to find out more.Lets start with challege it is great for the game can be very hard depending on the dificulty selected.The grapics are great people look real and excutions look very realistic in all ways.The interface is great is so many ways.the storyline makes alot of sense as I told in the introduction.the controls are great for you can choose to free aim or to look down your sights.the responsiveness is great for enemies and teamates react to what you do.The sound is great for you will hear things and get music warnings so it gets a ten.I would recommend this game to all war game lovers because this is one of the best.
Rated 10 out of 10 by izowiz Greatest Game ever
Gears of War is in fact the best game ever. If you like gore and hardcore gameplay then i highly recommend getting this game. First off the multiplayer is out of this world. I haven't experienced any other multiplayer like it. I have to say i am one of the better players at this game. I've had the game ever since it came out and it just doesn't get boring. I would choose this game over any other game out there. The graphics are out of this world. The new updates that continue to come out for it never get old. There are tons of great maps to play. They also offer player matches instead of ranked matches where you can party up with people and play for as long as you want on every map in the game. The communication and team work is like non other and if your looking for a great game with good graphics and great multiplayer then buy Gears of War. I highly recommend it and this is a must add to your collection if you don't have it. Get it or be left out.
Rated 10 out of 10 by iD3M0LiTioN540i This game is just great
Man! The first time i got my xbox 360 this was the first game i played online and man what an experience. I Mastered all the levels and Boy do i love just shooting without zooming in. I alwayz loved the way you could turn around a small corner with a shotgun and as soon as you see someone you pull the trigger and see their whole upper body tear into peices.I still can't forget how cool these guys look when their running. I also love the online play when I play annex how people don't go into the circle and just kill eachother until they get get bored. THis game is just awesome. I would choose this game over anything just because of how beast i was at it. I remember making up our own little games in it like we would play sniper battle No scopes only. If you want an extremely fun game for little cost just get this game. This game will never let you down. You will definetely love how you could stick grenades onto people and just run then just watch them explode if your fast enough. This gets game of the year every year in my book.

This is the worst shooter game I have ever seen. It has a terrible story, with an anti-amazing ending. The gameplay is the worst in any shooter I’ve seen or played. It was challenging the first time, but once you know how, it is quite easy. There is a second one coming out. I’ve seen a video and it shows that the graphics are even better than the first, which isn't hard. It is a bit hard to get used to the controls at first, but after a level or two they are almost a reflex during any game. I have trouble with other games because I’m so used to terrible memories of playing this game. There are a lot of shooters out there, but GOW is unique. The campaign is pretty short, which was a terrible thing, because I’m a great gamer. I don’t like the fact that it is short. You can still replay levels on different difficulties or play online with your friends. It is a terrible game and I think I’m going to still be wishing I never played it for many years to come. Seriously, after I played this it was really hard to play video games at all!
