Gears of War

- Xbox 360

Gears of War for the Xbox 360 is a great game that lived up to all of the hype, and that's saying something with all of the TV ads, movie theater trailers, giveaways, net advertising and on and on... First up of course is the Single-player or Story mode. Playing Gears in Story mode was immensely enjoyable, with characters and sequences you'll remember long after you've finished the game....

Gears of War

- Xbox 360

“Beautiful Destruction” is what Epic Games called their masterpiece, Gears of War. This game starts players off on an earth like planet called Sierra. Not much story is given as you are thrown right into the action as your friend Dom breaks you out of prison. Your enemy: Locust. They’ve come out of the ground and are bent on taking over Sierra. Locust come in all shapes and sizes, from small mo...

Like a lot of other people I bought into the hype and picked up a copy of Gears of War the first week it came out. I wasn't really anticipating the game but when it finally arrived I guess like everyone else I was influenced by the onslaught of advertising. With Gears of War opening me up to so many things I had never seen before (I had just bought an xbox at that point), I can't really say t...

Reviewing Gears of War is a lose-lose situation for video game fans. If you say it's one of the greatest games ever made you'll be labelled a fanboy who has fallen for the hype, but say it's just a good action game and you'll be called clueless and an obvious Microsoft hater. I might as well stick my fanboy hat on then, as Gears of War is everything Microsoft wanted it to be. Contrary to some o...
