Written on: 02/11/2008 by blade 93 (10 reviews written)

I am pleased to say that the hype of this game was well deserved because it is a true masterpiece! From the instant you start playing you will notice the textures on everything look superb! And everything from the gun battles to the simply wanderings of the map look brilliant! The music is great to really build up the suspense, the mini sequences that appear from time to time will make you jump! The control system is brilliant! Oh and you will greatly enjoy playing Gears Of War online as have… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/10/2008 by Rikimaru (12 reviews written)

Well my first thought was that this was going to be a huge lemon. And no I don't mean that I was expecting to find a squished up lemon inside the case! Usually hype and video games go hand in hand with divided opinions... On the one side people end up loving the game due to the hype and then get suckered in. And on the other side people get worked up with the hype and get massively disappointed. Well I am pleased to say that the hype with this game was well deserved because it is a true… Read Full Review

I never had so much fun on a game in my life it is worth buying again the best version is the special edition box set which i said on some of my other reviews cause you get the in this some art work in a book and a collectors disc showing the making of this game and its great to watch how the human mind can come up with a masterpiece like this.

Written on: 15/09/2007 by danny16 (5 reviews written)

One of the best games ever made. The graphics are top notch and I'm yet to find a glitch anywhere on the game. Gears of War may be gory but the language is probably worse but still its a quality game. It's an extreme test of your skill on hardcore and insane, and casual is great for first timers and still offers challenges so it isn't a game you complete once then just walk it next time. THE BEST GAME THE GAMING INDUSTRY WILL PROBABLY EVER SEE!… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/09/2007 by Galbytorix (23 reviews written)

Gears of War is a brilliant action packed adventure in which you annihilate grubs, wretches and behemoths with explosives, machine guns, chainsaws and satellite laser beams. The graphics of the aliens are astonishing and the blood and guts spill out in a spectacular mess. The camera modes are really good and when the chainsaw is used, the ultimate camera mode is initiated. GoW is the best 360 game yet and will be the main rival with the highly acclaimed Halo 3. GoW has the amazing abilities of… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/02/2007 by jpshelton (1 review written)

I'm writing this review because Gears of War has totally blown my mind with its gameplay, graphics and everything else packed into it. From the start you're thrown into a world filled with strange locust aliens that have only one aim - to blow you to bits, and that's it really, other than surviving as long as you can. The action is fantastic and I find myself addicted to one of the best games ever made. Sony eat your heart out… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/01/2007 by MikeyMoos (8 reviews written)

I think enough has been said here about the graphics and overall look, sound and feel of this amazing game.

I really wanted to expand on the comment made about the Co-op (offline) Mode.

Whatever you do, however you do it, whoever you have to drag in, play this game in split screen co-op mode.

Somehow the graphics are as good in split screen (never come across that before), but the game takes on a totally new and much more realistic and for the want of a better word... deeper, meaning and… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/01/2007 by Takahiro (36 reviews written)

When I first heard about this game I didn't pay much attention to it. It simply seemed to me like another tactical shooter that is stereotyping the XBox brand. But when it was actually released and I saw some trailers for it, the survival horror aspects got me interested, and by chance I saw it in a sale a mere week after it was released and snapped it up, and I have to say it's been the biggest surprise of the year as far as Xbox 360 games have gone.

Essentially, it's based in a future on… Read Full Review

Had Microsoft not publicly beaten their chest to a pulp over this game it would have been a marvellous discovery for us gamers. Indeed the television ad alone with its glorious graphics and that atmospheric rendition of 'Mad World' would have caught the attention and imagination of Xbox owners around the world, and left them chomping at the bit to purchase this game.

However, Microsoft didn't allow us to develop our own idea of what this game would be like, choosing instead to brainwash us… Read Full Review

Gears of War certainly lives up to all the hype, and if you have not got an XBox 360 yet, then get out and buy one, and make this game your Number 1 choice.

Having read your review, I can see your frustration with Gears of War online. I have not had the experience of online gaming. And to be honest, with what you say, I hope in future and for future titles these blips can be erased. That way good games will maybe become great games, and certainly Halo 3 promises to be the best title coming our way (on and offline) - well, let's hope anyway.

Harmonica's Response to Harmonica's Review

Written on: 08/02/2007

Thanks for your comment. After owning Gears of War from the day of release, to date, I cannot fully agree.
<br/>
<br/>Graphically, the game is an experience in itself. The game engine as mentioned before is outstanding; remarkable even, but the playing experience is not as awe-inspiring, and certainly not representative on the hype that preceded the game release.
<br/>
<br/>I’ve played practically nothing else since purchase, because as you rightly point out, this is the best game on the 360 bar none. However, my original review was a in-depth, and a true reflection of gaming, both with Gears of War and multiple preceding 1st person and 3rd person perspective shooters on multiple platforms. As such, if you have less experience of games from SEGA master systems right through to 3DO & PC, I can fully understand your stance with Gears of War. It is a great game!
<br/>
<br/>Yet to this day, the control system continues to annoy and frustrate me, while the online multiplayer experience has gone from great, to good, to at best average in this time, as Epic’s ‘compulsory’ downloads/upgrades have ruined the menu system, introduced multiple connection problems (the online game crashes on average 1 in 3 games without fail), reduced the points awarded ratio, AND perhaps most annoyingly, reset the power and range of the shotgun.
<br/>
<br/>Since the online game has turned from strategy and skill, to a continuous blasting frenzy, as no other weapon can compete with the shotgun from medium to close range, gun butts have been rendered useless, as has machine and hand gun trades against another player using his shotgun.
<br/>
<br/>Please do not suppose I’m just a ‘poor player’. My current rank on Gears of war is 11,000 out of 600,000 + players worldwide, who have entered Ranked Warzone at some point.
<br/>
<br/>However, as recently as last night, I found myself simply switching the game off out of frustration due to these Epic changes that make for a poorer quality online experience, than the one they delivered back in November 2006.
<br/>
<br/>Admittedly, this is the first in the line up of Gears of War titles, just like Halo 1 through to 2, so the next Gears of War should be the near perfect article, and I must reiterate that this game is without a doubt among the best available anywhere on any format at this moment in time. But for me it falls short in the areas mentioned.

Written on: 25/11/2006 by Bubzy (13 reviews written)

Gears of War is a brilliant, unique third - person shooter game. I do say unique but there are other games about mankind's survival when it's up to you to save the world but this is just the best, its like a nightmare that you cant escape but of course because it's an addictive game you don't want to leave because it's just so superb. Also unlike other shooters, Gears of War is all about teamwork in a big way, for example you can play with two humans. I also used voice recognition which was… Read Full Review

I have to agree with the addictive bit,as I find myself turning the Gears of War Xbox 360 game off because it's too intense, then five minutes later turning it back on again, because I really want kill some locust scum.
