The best title so far for the Xbox 360, is one of the best gameplay experiences you will ever be a part of.

Not much can be said that hasn't been said about GoW already. The graphics and sound are realistic, period. They are not just good, they are flat out realistic. They are the closest to realism that any console game has hit so far. You'll feel like you are playing the first 30 minutes of the movie "Saving Private Ryan." Again, the standard has been raised. All future shooters beware.
The urgent feeling and adrenaline you will feel while playing this game is also unmatched. It is just plain better than any other game of the genre that has come before it.
Why didn't I give this game a 10? Even this game is as close as they come, it is not quite perfect. It is short. It can be beaten in a matter of hours by someone who is experienced. You may also feel like you are being led around. Even though the graphics are the best I have seen, the environments have a way of keeping you from wandering around, and in a very closed space. This doesn't effect my score, because I am going to give the game the benefit of the doubt: maybe that is a mechanic to create a sense of claustrophobia, in which case it works perfectly!
Every other game of this genre is taken down a notch, because Gears of War has just blasted it's way to the top.
