Product Description

Platform: Xbox 360 | Edition: Classic Edition

Gears of War, an Xbox 360 exclusive game that blends tactical action with survival horror, thrusts gamers into a deep and harrowing tale of humankind`s epic battle for survival against the Locust Horde, a nightmarish race of creatures that surface from the bowels of the planet. The storyline plays out like a Hollywood blockbuster -- lead character Marcus Fenix pits advanced human technology against the overwhelming Locust Horde. Built around a revolutionary third-person tactical combat system and breathtaking, high-definition visuals from the Unreal Engine 3, Gears of War immerses you in a horrifying tale of war and survival.

The gameplay is focused on a fire team co-op so advanced that your A.I. teammates are indiscernible from human players. Voice recognition and real-time lip synching heighten the absorbing experience. The Unreal Engine 3 technology brings out the smallest details in the largest of battles. With GOW you`re sure to experience a rich, dynamic world where characters spring to life. Speaking of life, the battlefield is a lethal place. To survive, you must suppress your enemy with blindfire, take cover in interactive environments, and use weapons and teammates to outwit your dreaded, inhuman foes. And with a title like GOW, it would be shame if you couldn`t get online and challenge live gamers. With the next-generation of Xbox Live, you`ll be able to experience individualized matchmaking, view player statistics, earn player achievements, customize games, and build personalized gamer profiles.

 

  • Engaging and disturbing cinematic story.
  • Movie-like cut scenes, cinematic camera moves and in-game storytelling bring the brutal, emotionally charged narrative to life.
  • Gamers control Marcus Fenix and his fire team as they pit advanced human technology against the overwhelming and horrific Locust Horde.
  • Fire team co-op action

5.0 out of 5 stars Gears of war 16 Nov 2008
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Classic Edition
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Mint game, story and characters. Harsh Learning Curve, tedious on first play through, but is then addictive. Not as short as people say, but is pretty short, but there's always gears of war 2 when you finish. Trying to complete campaign on all difficulties is also rewarding.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not as repetitive as people say 12 Aug 2008
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Classic Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Yes, the game is essentially cover, shoot, cover but it is not as repetitive as some people suggest. If all you do is run for cover, especially on the harder levels, an enemy will come and melee attack you and you're dead. There are also a variety of weapons that change gameplay and the final boss is definitely more challenging than ducking behind cover and shooting; there is timing and movement involved as well. I really enjoy this game, especially co-op missions and I'm sure shooter fans won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars the best trilogy ever 10 Oct 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Classic Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I never play shooter games because a)its not my cup of tea, the genre never appealed to me before. b) its so gory and violent that I'd much rather stick to my very innocent Sims LOL... however this one, I saw my brother play and got involved in the story as they've concentrated in making such effort in to that and once I watched him I loved it and became engrossed in the developing story and the brilliant characters. I then dared to try to play, at first I was rubbish and then I just got better and if I can play it anyone can. I love this game so much and if you like it you will love GOW 2 and absolutely ADORE GOW 3...too bad there won't be no more and even if there was I am spoilt for any after this trilogy :( if I could give it 10 stars I would!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars THE ULTIMATE GAME 7 Jan 2011
By herdy1
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Classic Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I know this is old now, but I only just finally bought an Xbox 360 & this is the first game I had to play. I remember first seeing gameplay footage back in 2005 & being blown away. Well, to this day it is the finest looking game I have ever seen. And on top of that, it is one of the most intense campaigns I have played through, although it is short it is breathless action the whole way. I haven't even played the online multiplayer yet, just the single player campaign is enough for me. A lot of people seem to rate games these days on their online playability, but for those of us who still like to occasionally plough through a game without getting up against hundreds of others who do nothing else other than play online all day, and will immediately kick your ass, there is still a huge amount here to enjoy. Different levels of difficulty create constant challenge, aswell as different trophies to collect for certain achievments.
The only thing to disappoint me is that one of the levels in act 2 is now different to what was first shown back in 2005, and I think they changed it for the worst. You now pick up a vehicle which is not really all that much fun to drive, and I think the onfoot action is where the game is at its best. Anyway, just me being fussy really. Overall, I cannot find any fault with this game & it is an amazing achievement for all involed. Will be picking up the next games in the series for certain.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Game Ever? 17 Aug 2008
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Classic Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have had this game since launch date, however, it is only recently I have really started to play it. At first when I played it it just didn't really feel right and I didn't get into the game at all. I think this was mainly because I was enjoying myself too much on call of duty 3 online which is great fun.

However, this is one of those games that you have to play a lot to really appreciate how damn good this game actually is. I've seen many people moan on about how short the campaign is, I say it is just the right lenght, it took me 6-7 hours to complete the whole game, via xbox live with a friend I might add which is a brilliant idea, however, I do think the story could have been explained a bit more as if you read into the story,, you find it is a very detailed plot.

To online play. In verses ranked matches, again, you have to play the game quite a lot to really get into the game. At first when I played online I thought it was rubbish, everything was over too quickly, it was too difficult, but after playing it for a while I just can't get off the game.

Overall, this is easily the best 360 and next gen title by a mile, nothing compares to the awesome graphics and game play. At 20 odd pounds it really is a steal, an absolute must buy, believe the hype. Astonishing game.

Along with the Halo series, this series made the Xbox 360, and this was the start of it all. From the first sighting of General Raam this game will have you hooked.
