i dont know if anyone is as excited as i am, but Gears of War comes out today, marking the beginning of some xbox 360 best sellers for the 2006-2007 season. Gamestop is selling them today, other outlets on 12th or 14th. www.gearsofwar.com

This game is the ONLY game to ever recieve a perfect 10 out of 10 in OXM (official xbox magazine) halo 2: 9.8, one of the splintercells (pandora tommorow i believe) 9.9

i cant wait till 3:30 when i get home.

OMG, I cannot wait to get it!



I remember when Pandora tommorow got a 9.9, that game shouldn't have gotten such a high score. And no game is a perfect 10, but I think GoW should get the 9.9.


Halo 3! Cannot wait for that.

i did. i have 50 down on legendary. btw guys i had to take it to my friends house today cuz xbox is no-no durring the week.

IT LIVES UP TO ITS HYPE!
its not at all an easy game, the enemy AI owns, friendly AI is a bit jumpy but still they kill well, i did find myself reviving them alot though.

amazing game.

edit: game inspired by a game of paintball that the lead developper played. (read page 2 of manual)

btw get gears not cod3 or nfsuc

Gears of War is truly a Next Gen game for the 360. The only thing the game lacks is more multiplayer gametypes, but other than that i can get by just fine curb stomping suckazzz lol

my friend just got to the end with general RAAM

i havent played since tuesday, i just beat the berserker.

this game really is beautiful and just an awesome game to play, they hit all of their goals of making you sort of "care" about your team and character, while also having a great time in gorgeous (destroyed) environments. the only problem ive seen. (the ONLY ONE) is that the cover system is mildly confusing when you are covered on one side of the door frame and you want to dive throught the door and up to another cover spot. when you hit a it swat turns to the other side so you have to back off run in then press a, a mild downfall, i got used to it, but otherwise the cover system is brillant. AI is a little annoying on coop cuz when you split off into groups your guy listens to your friend's orders if hes player 1 because hes the squad commander so i sorta have to do it alone unless i tell my friend to send wierd orders to his guy (and indirectly mine)

Just beat the game,
Yeah i knwo what u must be thinking, this kid plays video games for way too long
But actually, you can bea the game on casual in only like 8 hours, it really sucks, they made it like a halo ending where they were like oh the war is not yet over
Not worth the sixty bucks, rent the game

Just beat it on casual last night it's worth the money buy it

Multiplayer is just too much fun

The lastboss was awsome I think their name is like Graam or something like that.

insane is the only "unlockable" thing in the game. you can get achivements by looking at what needs to be done on the XBL achievement list for the game.
