Gears of War is now available for download via Microsoft's Games on Demand service through Xbox Live.
Good job Microsoft! Gears 1 is amazing.
I agree, epic game. Maybe there are still a couple of guys out there that own a 360 and have not played GeOW. :P
Yup awesome game!
Gears of War 1's story mode was definitely ALOT better than Gears 2. Alot more darker and story driven whereas Gears 2 I found myself just shooting...shooting some more...all so that the damn *spoiler* queen can get away? Wtf was the point of everything then!? I think I might hop back on Gears of War 1 too. Good times on that game...gooooooooood times.
I'd like it if they released Gears2 GOTY edition on games on demand, I know it wasn't all it was hyped to be (I actually bought Gears 2 at release, but returned it after a month), but I miss Horde mode, despite having ODST (Firefight mode). Maybe I should give UC2 a try, heard it has a similar mode aswell. Anyway, Gears one is a great game that should be played. Oh, for the queen, it's the usual "I'll be back" syndrome.
I've been playing Gears 1 for the past week lol wow. Yeah, Gears 1 owns Gears 2. Gears 1 is much faster and you can bounce off walls with a nice shotgun, takes much more skill. Gears 2 got slower and they nerfed the shotgun so it's kinda lame. Gears 1 is good, get it!.
Game worth playing. The sequel, not so much.
I would definitely give the music to part 1 which was incredible but the story of Dom in part 2 blew the 1st away.
For a good price too. $19.99
Okay that is a good price!
The pricing is what I was worried about, but 20 bucks totally works. If you don't own the disk, this is a buy.
It's ten bucks at gamestop.
Already have the game, its totally awesome. Id love to see Sony have a Games on Demand type of thing.
But here in the UK its £19.99 which is $31. In the shops, you can get it for about £10 which is about $16.
then go to the shop? sheesh, always complaining.
He is pointing out that it's a ridiculous price for a game that is a download, can't be resold and has no material overheads , so why charge that price.£19.99 and you can get it for £8..Start charging about £10 and they would sell a hell of a lot more.
LOL. In before the haters. With that said... Whoever hasn't played this game yet, you've missed out on a truly epic experience. The game's a classic and still being played online.
it was hard as hell on insane but it was definitely a memorable (albiet short) experience. great story, great characters, great gameplay, and at the time, the sickest graphics i've seen on a console.
Well I already have a copy. Its why I bought an xbox. But for people who dont own it yet, its not worth it to buy it off this service. In the Uk anyway.
Gears 1- One of the greatest games this generation. Gears 2- Not so much.
Have it on PC 10000000000000 better than the sh1t box version
Actually, I was aware that the PC version was actually god awful, and I'm a PC fan.
What are Xbots bragging over now? "Oh well...now we have Gears of War on demand!!! Win Confirmed!" LOL...oh how F'n sad! BTW, just for my personal confirmation, is there anything within the xbot butt buddies gaming vocabulary besides Gears of War and Halo???
Totally agree , Gears 1 was much better than 2, but still overall I dotn find gears appealing, its just too slow, but I like the texture work. I would take Halo or UC any day over Gears.
The only thing I liked about Gears 2 was the bots that you could play offline.
