Summary: The game is good for its time, but the 5th level is impossible, there are these indestructible things called berserkers and they destroy everything. The thing is, you have to kill one. Think about it indestructible locust, and you have to KILL it. It's impossible. Everything else up to that point in the game is great. Gears of war 2 is better.
Summary: Gears of War is not a great game. Though it is a decent start to a big series. If you want to buy this game, just remember to pay it with a friend, or else it will be boring and repetitive. If you are a gamer who only likes great graphics, this is a perfect game for you. There is not one point in the game where I thought that it looked bad, but there is quite a bit of texture pop in here-and-there. But, overall the graphics are awesome.
Summary: i sure hope the online gaming makes up for the single player campaign because i thought it was lame. the graphics are well under par, the cut scenes and story line are boring and leave much to be desired, and the characters and fighting is cumbersome i thought. For as much hype as this game gets I had much higher expectations.
Summary: The campaign was great and I love the gears campaign. Afetr the campaign, the only hting to do was multiplayer. I hated how there was no leveling up or unlocks. The only hting to get is some xbox achievements. I could not get a single kill. the sniper sucks and is too slow. Gears of war 2 was good becasue it had leveling up and horde mode. This was just boring. I only played it for a week, not even.
Summary: i am not a big third-person shooter kinda guy but when i got gears of war i was very dissapointed, the graphics are terrible, the campaign is awful. Believe me, i gave this game a few tries but it is so boring.......... ............................................................................
Summary: At first I thought the game was going to be really good then I started playing it and thought it was kinda suckish, The game also had bad graphics, gameplay, nice sound though, and bad lasting appeal I wouldn't really recommend this game to anyone
Summary: I bought this game after hearing all the reviews my friends gave me, but in my opinion, the game is over-rated. While it is some-what challenging, the storyline is kind of dull to me. And I'm not sure if this is how it actually is, but if the monsters killed off the rest of the world's population, then what's the point of these 5 men to try to fight them off? Some of the scenes in this game are too quiet when you're running towrds your next fight.
Summary: First of all, Gears of War is a really fun game, but it is very very short and way to hard. the graphics are amazing, but the game itself is just a original shooter. i bought the game when it first came out, and i enjoyed the first half of the game. the second half was just way too slow. in the last level you have 2 fight this big leader of the bad guys. it took me about 3 weeks to finally beat that level by itself.

Summary: Good day everyone... This game was horrible. Not only do you not find out where the Locus came from... you don't find out ANYTHING about the characters even when they hint at their mysterious pasts. Me and a friend played this game on co-op and we were entertained with the fighting. But I would NEVER play this game alone or recommend it to anyone who knows what a real game should be like. You never even find out why you do any of the things you do.
