Gears of War (X360) - Review

VGChartz
10 June 2009
  • Excerpt: Gears of War is synonymous with the Xbox 360, analogous to the original Xbox's Halo and every bit as iconic within the gaming community. There isn't enough that can be written about how this game has shaped the image of the system of its original release, how it set the tone for everything that came after it and raised the bar for what we expected out of action games for this generation, both in terms of mechanics and in terms of presentation.

Mount & Blade

GAMESQUAD
15 September 2008
  • Conclusion: Mount & Blade is a marvelously innovative title. Ditching the fantastic for a more historical setting, incorporating a FPS-styled combat system, and allowing the formation of large war parties, Mount & Blade thoroughly refreshes a genre long trapped by convention. Take these solid fundamentals, mix in the already active modding community hard at work at taking M&B in some very fascinating directions (the early Age of Gunpowder, anyone?
  • Pros: Refreshing non-fantastical setting; innovative physics-based combat system; the ability to manage large war parties; wonderful musical score.
  • Cons: No multiplayer; some quests can be repetitious; hero characters are invulnerable; needs a central narrative.

Gears of War

Strategy Informer
18 March 2008
  • Conclusion: Overall I was quite impressed with Gears of War. It took a year, but now Xbox 360 owners finally have that "must have" title for their system. And what a great title it is. There are some small problems with the game though. For starters the single-player game only lasts about 10 hours for the average gamer, which is pretty short. But it's one hell of a white-knuckle ride form start to finish. I also felt that the story could have been better fleshed out then it was.

  • Conclusion: Gears of War is clearly one of the best-looking games in 2006 and it could even rival Halo 3 for the graphical achievements and awesome gameplay. It’s only a matter of time before it starts winning awards such as Game of the Year under its belt. For FPS fans, you really can’t go wrong with this game. It’s almost like a puzzle and shooter hybrid, relying on quick thinking and tactics. There is no other shooting game like it out there until Halo 3 comes out.

Gears of War Review

IGN Entertainment
9 February 2008
  • Conclusion: If you're a graphics whore, you absolutely, positively need to pick this game up. To say that Gears of War features "next-gen graphics is a gross understatement. It's got the most impressive graphics ever seen in a video game, and the stellar art direction only makes it more beautiful. Characters move smoothly and realistically, and we're huge fans of the "roadie run," in which your character will run low to the ground while the camera bounces behind him.

Gears of War (Xbox 360) Review

3 February 2008
  • Excerpt: If it seems like just about everyone has been talking about Gears of War since even prior to the 360’s launch… well then, that’s because they have. Gears of War is supposed to be the game that showcases the power of the 360. It’s supposed to do for the 360 what the original Halo did for the X-box. No pressure or anything, right?
