This is the best game ever on xbox the story is very good easy controls, graphics are amazing still better than some games today. I had this as my first every xbox360 and there is not alot that come near this, even the following 3 gears dont match this master piece.

  The console defining title

This game deserves 4 stars simply becuse it put the 360 on the map. It is a bit of a Marmite game though in that some people (including myself) aren't huge fans.

For me the gameplay is a bit clunky and the main character is just an oafish thing that moves with all the grace of a hippo.

The other thing I don't like is that enemies take whole clips of ammo to kill and often even then don't die after that.

I did finish the game and found the story entertaining but it was met with more frustration than anything.

Due to my dislike of the game engine I found multiplayer just as bad. It seemed to have no real objective and (like Halo) to win it just required a skill of being able to run up to people and Melee.

It is a fantastic game, a brilliant concept and a true gem for the console but not for me.

You really have to give it a try though as you won't know if you like it until you play it.

  Amazing !

Amazing game. One of the reasons I bought a Slim. For those interested, this one is Multilanguage (spanish voices available).

  Great way to start the series

After replaying Gears of War this year to recall the story so far before Gears of War 3 comes out, this game was a great way to start a video game series. The story is perfect, the characters are fun and the multiplayer was good for a game that came out in the first year of the Xbox 360's release. One complain though would be the AI for Dom in the story. He would always run into the enemies, making you having to get out of cover all the time to save him, that is why I give the first Gears of War game a 4/5.

  This game is superb!

  Great console FPS

You have a chainsaw machinegun that chops people in two, what more do you need to know. Get it as it's well made, looks great and gives you alot to laugh at. Keeps you on your toes which is rare for a shooter and it's linear gameplay is not really that noticable as it's got no shortage of bad guys coming for you.

  Get in to Gear

This is a great game and well worth picking up at the classics price. Plenty of shooting and killing, but also tricky enough to keep you interested.
