Gears of War is a third-person shooter video game that originally came out exclusively for Xbox 360 in November 2006 in North America, Australia and Europe.
The plot of the game tells about the planet Sera that used to be a civilized planet inhabited by the humans until some unknown dreadful monsters, the Locust horder, conquered it. Sera's soldiers surrendered and one of them got imprisoned. He had to spend 14 long years in prison before he managed to escape to join the forces against the monsters.
Gears of War consists of 5 main parts and 30 chapters in total. The combat will be taking place on diverse and beautiful landscapes like a train in motion and regular city streets. Each chapter offers a few fierce battles between Sera's defenders and the monsters. Game developers made sure the game wouldn't become boring for advanced players and gave a choice of 3 difficulty levels.
Gears of War co-op mode is pretty cool and gives an option of a split screen to the players.
The multiplayer main strength is the versus mode. It offers very detailed maps that are not that expansive compared to other games but they are highly addictive and innovative.
We cannot say that Gears of War ammunition is something exclusive but it does have few incredible tools. Lncer Assault Rifle, flesh-destroying grenade are definitely worth of mentioning.
Gears of War was welcomed with generally positive reviews from critics due to its beautiful visual effects, well-thought maps and fantastic sound effects
Among the game weaknesses the lack of innovation in the gameplay and not very deep plot were highlighted by the critics.
The game has undoubtedly achieved a great commercial success with over 5 million copies being sold worldwide in 2 years after its release.
To conclude, this beautiful shooter might not have a very deep story line but shows an incredibly implemented environment of the planer Sera with diverse landscapes, anything but usual maps and fantastic sounds.
The game is rated M for Mature: Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, Strong Language.
