We setup a killer home LAN and played this game until we mastered its insane mode.
This one deserves its place right up there with Call of Duty 4 and the Halo series.
If you are a PC gaming enthusiast you will have no problem upgrading to a quad core and nvidia 9800 ultra or whatever is the top of the line is at the moment. DirectX10 support is highly recommended.
Check your video card box at your electronics store to ensure it provides DirectX10 support.
You will also need a nice amount of ram. 2gb will work but 4gb is just right for smooth gameplay.
The PC version of this game also supports Live for Windows. A service pretty much identical to XBOX LIVE, however this one is FREE!!! Your xbox gamertag should work just fine here.
I can't wait until Gears 2 is out.
So in brief, do not attempt to play this game on your old clunker PC. Upgrade before you play and you may even be able to play the new Crysis. If you have an XBOX 360 then you already love Gears of War.
This replay value of this game is VERY HIGH. A lot of the cutscenes will make more sense the second time around.
You can play alone or with your friends. In the main campaign you will fight a force known as the locusts as you search to plant a bomb in their tunnels, all sorts of things go wrong and you will need to use your brains to get past many levels. The enemy is strong and scary.
For parents, this game is obviously not appropriate for kids, however, it does have an option to eliminate profanity and "extreme content."
