i thought this game was amazing. The online is better for the gears of war 2 but this has a really good campagin. Also if i had to pick a game with the best graphics of all time it would be this one. Every little deatail is there and the graphics on the fingers is amazing. Since videogames usually do a lousy job on the fingers.

Review Combining elements of Ghost Recon and Halo, Epic has managed to create a tactical sci-fi third person shooter with the same amount of strategy as Ghost Recon and the fantastic story elements and moments seen in games like Halo and Metal Gear Solid. As Marcus, you're equipped with the standard weapon for gear units, called the Lancer. Outfitted with a chainsaw bayonet, the Lancer is a standard machine gun that accompanies the gear's pistol, as well as the innovative frag grenades that act as a grenade/mace hybrid, where the user swings it by a chain before unleashing it, or can even stick it to an enemy using the spikes on it...Every weapon is available online and the amazing thing about Gears is the balance between them all - you'll rarely die from a sniper rifle or any other device and feel like it was a cheat shot or that were cheated, something many games fail to address...Gears of War is simply a phenomenal game - one that is very difficult to describe, but once you pick it up and play it, you'll know exactly what they were trying to say. It does live up to the hype and it does match Halo in terms of a superb campaign and a ridiculously addictive online mode. If you're struggling to find a killer game for your Xbox 360 then look no further - unless you're under 17 of course!
