    the best 360 game thus far

    Gears of War is a must-have game, pure and simple. Epic has effectively created a new gaming universe, and the rich story of planet Sera holds its own with the likes of Hyrule, City 17 and the Mushroom-friggin'-Kingdom. ... Read Full Review

    After this wait, it was very dissapointing.

    The Gameplay of Gears of War isn't what I expected. The first couple hours were fun, but it got very repetative after a while. The story is basic as a shooter. You kill the aliens to win the game. Nothing original. The p... Read Full Review
