Leading the charts is Halo, a game synonyms with the Xbox brand from the very beginning but in November 2006 a new franchise came very close to Halo's success, most gamers know it as Gears of War.
This "Epic" game quickly topped charts around the world as the game was way ahead of its time. The Unreal 3 engine powered graphics brought to life alien flesh like never before, I still remember the first time I used my chainsaw to cut an enemy in half, my sadistic alter-ego went, "Wahoo". Gears of War is back with a direct sequel and this time its meaner and much larger in scale."
