Summary: I waited on the 360 up till black Friday. That said this game does not impress me. It feels really slow and clunky. Hit detection is also just okay at best. I would hate to compare it to Uncharted but as that is one of the only other cover based TPS games I'd say uncharted isn't just much better, it is a entirely different experience. Overall..grab it if it's cheap. The generic world, story, and characters just didn't speak to me.
Summary: Gears of War threw in this whole movement system where you can hide behind stuff, and bounce to-and-fro like you're a member of the LAPD SWAT. It's a cool concept, but the problem is it's completely unnecessary. Why? Because the hit detection is abosultely horrid. You can literally empty an entire clip with your machine gun into a running target and not kill it. I understand there will be some weapons more powerful than others but a whole clip? Give me a break.
Gears Of War: Forgettable, repetitive and uninspired

Summary: There's no disputing how fantastic this game looks. It has some of the most detailed visuals you'll likely ever lay eyes on, with exceptionally detailed characters and backdrops and satisfyingly gory enemy explosions as well as some impressively sized monsters to battle. It looks awesome. Heck, it's arguably the best looking game made to date, so impressive is it's level of detail.
Summary: picked this game up a few years back having heard all of the great things about it - I only bothered to finish it last week. This was one of the most boring and overrated games I've played, it was a linear brownfest of overlong fights, glitchy gameplay and unlikeable characters, not to mention the uninspired design and vague nonsensical plot.
Summary: This game isn't a bad game, the graphics are amazing and the storyline great. Yet the gameplay is the same all the way through minus the vehicle scenes. All you do is duck/cover behind something in every mission. And the Final boss, guess what you have to do? Duck and Cover. Did not live up to the hype for me, however you may find it enjoyable so go ahead doesn't get much cheaper than this.
Summary: Having played the Halo series, Bioshock and Mass Effect, I was very
disappointed with this game. What is all the hype about- It follows set patterns
in each level and has far less freedom than comparable games. The presence of
level bosses at various stages is also very annoying and old school. Added to
this, there are only two difficulty levels – the latter of which is
annoyingly difficult for a game of this genre. Save your money or buy Halo,
Bioshock or Mass Effect.
Summary: this is meant to be the best game for the xbox360. it isnt. I recently bought it with my xbox360 and i have to say i prefer the Wii. First impressions r great. Beautiful graphics, great action. but it gets boring. really boring. the multiplayer adds little to the whole xperience. i xpected more. a lot more.
Summary: Trög styrning, trist story, platta karaktärer och ett spel som rent allmänt inte var speciellt underhållande att spela. Att det trots flera år efter releasen har så pass många buggar kvar är obegripligt.
Excerpt: Oggi un amico mi ha invitato, assieme ad altri amici, a casa sua, dove ci ha costretti a giocare a questo gioco per 4 ore di fila. Oltre ad avere dovuto subire le sue critiche nei nostri confronti, che non sapevamo giocare a questo gioco, (era la prima volta ci giocavamo) abbiamo dovuto sorbirci questa noia mortale. Da quanto ho capito è la storia di un soldato che va con un gruppo di alleati su un pianeta ad affrontare degli alieni: come grafica ...
Pros: la grafica è spettacolare
Cons: il gioco viene presto a noia, sempre le solite cose da fare
