Gears of War
Fantastic graphics Refreshing take on third-person shooter gameplay Excellent multiplayer options
Very stable port, Looks beyond brilliant, Great online play, Co-op still rocks
Unrelenting action; challenging gameplay; amazing visuals; PCexclusive content.
Fantastic stop-and-pop combat; improved graphics over the 360 version; excellent new single-player content.
Satisfying gameplay in story mode, Very addictive online offering, Really stellar graphics from both a technical and an artistic standpoint, Fullyfeatured level editor included.
The storyline is a bit ‘heard it all before’ Some players may experience an early technical glitch
Save games glitch messes up single player campaign
No jumping; no splitscreen coop; LIVE membership fees.
Battles can feel a little repetitive after a while.
System requirements can be a little steep, New chapters added to this version dont fit quite so well with the old ones, Difficulty could have used some slight tuning.
