Fantastic!!!!

by Mark on 12/1/2008

Definately worth spending the extra money on. You get more Multiplayer Maps. The other extras are worth it as well. You can get it for $30 dollars off if you can get their credit card as well. Read More

Gears is great

by Flex on 12/6/2008

This is a great game, but not for the kids. Please pay attention to the ESRB ratings, they are not arbitrary. They do mean something. The collectors edition comes with an extra DVD that has a few bonus features as well as a code for the gold lancer, and the DVD has exclusive gamerpics also. The extra multiplayer maps come with every new copy of the game, collectors edition or not. It is a way to persuade you to buy new I guess. So far they are not up for download, so you cannot even buy the maps if you wanted to, you just have to get the game new. If you want detailed reviews, check out metacritic. It is fun, great with friends. There have been some issues with matchmaking, but I have not experienced them. All in all a must have for the MATURE gamer, and certainly not for kids or those who do not appreciate violence. Fortunately, you can turn off bad language and gore in the options, so that is nice, but even with those both off, it would still warrant an M rating. Read More
