Gears of War, an Xbox 360 exclusive game that blends tactical action with survival horror, thrusts gamers into a deep and harrowing tale of humankind's epic battle for survival against the Locust Horde, a nightmarish race of creatures that surface from the bowels of the planet. The storyline plays out like a Hollywood blockbuster -- lead character Marcus Fenix pits advanced human technology against the overwhelming Locust Horde. Built around a revolutionary third-person tactical combat system and breathtaking, high-definition visuals from the Unreal Engine 3, Gears of War immerses you in a horrifying tale of war and survival.
The gameplay is focused on a fire team co-op so advanced that your A.I. teammates are indiscernible from human players. Voice recognition and real-time lip synching heighten the absorbing experience. The Unreal Engine 3 technology brings out the smallest details in the largest of battles. With GOW you're sure to experience a rich, dynamic world where characters spring to life. Speaking of life, the battlefield is a lethal place.

Gears of fun!
This game is a third person duck and cover shooter. The game can be played solo or in co-op with individual characters providing different perspectives on the main running story. Controls are simple to remember allowing you time to think and mix them up on the battlefield. Some moves can be brutal and graphic which is all part of the tone of this game. The story is engaging making for a tight game. Cover me!

Gears Of War is an amazing Series and this game was the game that started it all. This game has a great action packed campaign. You and a friend can play Co Op campaign and with one being Dom and the other being Marcus, you experience the story from two different perspectives. Multiplayer is a great feature in this game because of the different variety of game modes and maps, you can have hours of fun online. Overall I give this game a rating of 9.5/10.

One of the greatest Xbox360 games. Gears of War was perhaps the Xbox360's first must have game. The science fiction war setting makes this game an epic ride that will thrill you from start to finish. The graphics are great (and still look good), the controls are spot on & the production values in general are excellent. What makes this game is the ease of the cover mechanics. Being more tactical in your shooting makes this game all that more challenging, and also makes the game quite atmospheric (you will really feel like you are in a warzone). The game particularly towards the end becomes quite challenging. The last boss fight is a highlight. The multiplayer and co-op modes extend the life of the game even further. An absolute must for all Xbox360 owners.

Just finished this game, many years after its release. I have only owned an Xbox 360 for a couple months. Whilst the game is indeed short in terms of its single player campaign, it is filled with intense and constant, vicious combat. The story is quite average and bland, so nothing special. Your a soldier, a ''Gear'' or cog in the machine of war. Your job is to shoot your gun in the general direction of the enemy until they are dead. That pretty much sums up the entire game. I did not try multiplayer as its not my thing. It is indeed a good game, but with a mediocre story. If your after fast and furious combat in a game, this old one is a classic.
