Gears of War Review - 10/10: Exceeds 360 version

The game proved a massive success on Xbox LIVE, and held the top spot until Halo 3 came out in September. Through a number of game modes you played as one of either Delta squad or a squad of four locust in eight-player matches. A year after the game came out, I still regularly return to the game online, it's so much fun. Amazing to think that Epic had considered dropping the multiplayer portion of the game. Quite simply, Gears of War is so good, it was given a 10.

Pro-G had a bit of a discussion in the office about whether Gears on PC deserves a 10 like the 360 version. They hought about dropping it down to a nine because the wow factor is somewhat reduced. But they thought better of it - the 360 game's soul shines just as bright now as it did a year ago, and so the PC version, with its improved visuals, lengthened campaign, more multiplayer maps and a game editor at least matches it, and perhaps even exceeds it. 360 owners might not be as interested as PC-only gamers will be, but that doesn't stop Gears from being one of the best games ever made. Buy the game and experience it for yourself, if for nothing more than to see why 360-owners say the Lancer/chainsaw is one of the best videogame weapons ever.

The Xbox 360 version gets 94%, and the meta-score has already stabilized because there isn't any more new review scores coming out for it. Which means that score is not going to change.

On the other hand, the PC version has just come out, and its meta-score has already fallen to 89% below 90%. New review scores are still coming out. Knowing Metacritic well, I can tell you that the score will only continue to fall.

For my HP quad-core! Who else is gettin this? We gotta do some deathmatch!!

Must say though, I am pissed that they were to lazy to make it cross-playable with the 360 version, just inexcusable!! AMaybe a future update will do the trick...

have u upgraded the Video card for it?

nVidia 8600GT...think it'll play Gears with maximum graphics settings? It's an SLI-ready card, the processors run at 2.4GHz. I probably won't have the game for pc until Christmas day though, been having to spend a lotta money on video equipment for business, and needed the quad-core for major video editing and special effects.

Can't wait to pick this up, Epic, you are made of win.


the graphics outta be better, it is Epic that made the game, and besides, 180 exceeded its capabilities with the game, so its only natural for the pc to beat it

Gears of War is a must buy for any xbox360 owner.
