Gears of War

released on Nov 07, 2006

A third-person tactical shooter from Epic, running on the Unreal Engine 3. Gears of War thrusts gamers into a deep and harrowing story of humankind's epic battle for survival against the Locust Horde, a nightmarish race of creatures that surface from the bowels of the planet.

Unlike other shooters, Gears of War is all about teamwork in a big way. All game modes, levels and scenarios are designed specifically to encourage co-operative play, whether it be with A.I. partners or human players (with A.I. teammates designed with specific strengths, weaknesses and personalities.) On top of that, voice recognition will be available for players, and obviously voice chat to discuss strategy with your friends. In addition to voice chat, gamers will be able to experience individualized matchmaking, view player statistics, earn player achievements, customize their games, and build and personalize their gamer profiles over Xbox Live.

Brutal fun. I've always preferred Gears to Halo, probably because I'm a psychopath who would rather eviscerate massive hunks of meat that bleed the color red. But the Gears series has always possessed a weight that I've appreciated. Magnetizing into cover always feels tactile and impactful, even when you didn't mean to. I even enjoyed the Berserker battles, which I imagine haven't aged well for most people. This came out a year after Resident Evil 4, so breaking up the stop n pop cover shooting with intense stealth battles was a logical evolution to the action horror formula. I look forward to replaying the rest of the series and see how Gears 2 shifts with the times. It released the same year as Dead Space, after all.


I liked this game a lot, mostly for the multiplayer since some parts of the campaign were tedious AF, but i still hold it very dear to me. Even the multiplayer glitches were fun


É o melhor da série pra mim. Aqui realmente é ação e tiroteio toda hora, com os melhores cenários e ambientação da serie.


A third person shooter inspired by RE4 that served as a tech demo for the 360's performance capabilities. a surprisingly good story with memorable characters and solid action. def play the remake tho if you have the ability
