"Gears Of War is dumb. It's a game about enormous, muscular, arsehole space marines"

The first one didn't have much of a story but the second one really did, and the third one did a good job as well.

Secondly, they're not space marine, the game has nothing to do with space, you never set foot in space. The enemies come from underground, not space.

Not criticizing his review, 8/10 is a great score, but just clarifying something that stuck out to me.

They're on a planet in space. Aren't we all?
