If you like the challenge of building a city, pleasing gods, trading, looking after your people and fighting the enemies of rome. This game is for you. The graphics are not brilliant and the battles are not fantastic but this game is very addictive and very fun.
Gears of war is a brilliant 3rd person shooter and is the best of it's type out on the 360 at the moment. If you are into any type of human v alian games im sure this will be a game for you to get. The campaign can be transformed from a fairly layed back difficulty level into an insane tatical difficult level. The campaign is a whole new experience every time you change the difficulty level because it varies so much. Don't get me wrong it's never too easy. The online side to the game is very addictive and you might find yourself playing it too much. It has a wide range of maps which suit different types of players. The only thing this game lacks is a wide range of weapons. OK OK it had a range but i think they should have introduced a few more. Usually when i buy shooting games i go for 1st person shooters but gears of war has transformed my view of 3rd person shooters for ever. Advice - This game is best enjoyed when you can play it online as well as the campaign but it's still good just doin the campaign.=-)
