Epic's year-old action beast proves just as enjoyable on PC as it was on Xbox 360. The mouse and keyboard allow for more precise control, and the graphics have been improved as well. With the additional single-player content, King of the Hill multiplayer mode, extra maps, and a map editor, Gears offers an even more impressive feature set than before. Even with all its improvements, though, Gears suffers from an occasionally aggravating cover and sprint system, and sets its action atop a rickety narrative foundation with cookie-cutter action heroes. Still, it's an undeniably entertaining experience, and one you should definitely consider if you missed the Xbox 360 version.
Overall score: 8.7/10
