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

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. Plus Rumor has there is a movie following this which I can not wait for so the game is worth having… Read Full Review

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

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

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

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

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 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
