I read a few of these reviews on here and am questioning the intestinal fortitude for them. Calling Gears a one trick poney? I thought the point of gaming was to challenge you even though someone said "if you like games where it takes hundreds of bullets to kill something this is for you." Im sorry but this is called a challenge in the gaming world and it happens to be the best part of Gears! This is the best game since Halo 2 in Shooter games to date. GOW offers a beautiful storyline, orgasmic graphics and weapons that will make grampa **** his Korea War M-15 Assault Rifle right out of his ass and start firing! GOW offers the best online play since Halo's and quite possibly will continue to be played for years to come online. This would be unheard of. Marcus Fenix has joined Master Chief as the faces of Microsoft's Xbox. GOW is a game of stratedy and squad based fighting but with a much more simple game play. Think of GRAW but the controls are easier to understand and learn. This is a game that dad and the son can play together to stop the baddies. Speaking of, lets not forget the Locust Horde and General RAMM which including the other boss fights you have are very hard and fun at the same time. The commentary throughout the game is hilarious and the visuals(in game and cenematic) are breath-taking and make you feel like your actually there(espically in HD). Buy this game, don't matter what the price is you need to own this game, if you don't have a 360 quite buying internet porn and get that 360 and GOW now before you realize to late and everyone I mean EVERYONE is kickin' your ass online! Currently the best game out until Halo 3!
