Summary

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.

I spent I think an hour figuring out how to kill the final boss and when I did, too less than a minute. What a poor way to end a decent game.

Also, support ai is dumb as bricks.

Great big beefy guys with great big beefy guns- classic cover and shoot. I didn't get to play this when it was new but I can see why it's so liked. Good solid shooter 👍

i don't think it's something special but i see why people call it a masterpiece although it's an "ok" experience in 2024

There's nothing other to say really, the gameplay is basic the level design is beautiful but doesn't offer anything for the combat and there's like 3-4 types of enemies in a 4-6 hour story. i hope the sequel would add something interesting
