Gears of War

Overall: Most of this game's elements are good. It's quite obvious the team really wanted to make a good cover system and they've achieved that. But what they should have a spent a lot more time on was the AI on your team.

While this game does have a lot of hype, most of which is deserved. That isn't to say it is perfect. In fact, it's far from perfect. But I highly recommend you buy this game or at the very least, rent it.

Gameplay: Gameplay is quite good in this game. The controls feel great. The Active Reload element really makes it much easier to reload your gun when you're surrounded by Locust. But any difficulty past Casual will pretty much need to be played co-op because your team AI is just awful, they pretty much try to get themselves killed.

Graphics: Gears of War redefines what not only the Xbox 360 can do visually but what all video games can do visually. The graphics are absolutely stunning in this game, right down to the very last detail. Especially how real the blood and gore looks! In my opinion the only that has better visuals than Gears of War is real life.

Audio: There isn't really a lot of music in this game, till the end at least. But I do like how real the guns sound. Especially the chainsaw. Not only does it sound like a real chainsaw but it also sounds like you're actually cutting through someone's very flesh! But the best piece of sound in the game is the explosions, so if you like a good exploding sound throw lots of grenades.

Suggestions: Epic, you have created a masterpiece right here. You are clearly very good at what you do and you should probably pay your Foley Artist a bit more. But please, for Gears of War 2 (which I am looking forward to very much) spend more time the ally AI, don't make them suicidal.

Overall Score: 9.5 / 10
