    This game is a work of genius, the graphics are perfect down to the very last detail and they get even better in HD. The story is brilliantly thought up and very clever. The story is a kind of Holly...

    the best 360 game thus far

    Rated on May 04, 2007 by gbird991

    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 Mushroo...

    After this wait, it was very dissapointing.

    Rated on May 05, 2007 by blizzvalve

    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. Not...
