Originally the Gears series was going to have a hip-hop soundtrack instead of the orchestral one it has now.

Nope, #4 is actually true. They show the actual back & forth with Microsoft and Epic about inclusion of the chainsaw in the final game. All of it is there on the bonus disc for GOW1 Collector's Edition. Including Cliff's first time meating with Bill Gates, taking a picture, and the priceless expression on Cliff's face when Bill imposed a November '06 release date for Gears(about an 8 month window at the time).

Graphics are garbage, voice acting garbage, gameplay 2x garbage, and yes...

Gears 1 is 2x better than gears 2...which is sad.
