A friend of mine (GTR35) asked me about gears of war so I started this thread as a place to discuss this and other games. I wasn't really into gears that much since I didn't have a 360 and didn't really understand all the hype. I recently went out and bought it, and I must say that it is absolutely fantastic. While it's true that it seems kind of dull, and lacking color, all that gives it a great effect and makes it feel realistic. Another reason I like this game is the gameplay style, especially in story mode. I was used to playing run and gun games, but this is completely different. You must use cover, and the cover system is great, along with the AI. Running and gunning will get you nowhere in this game. I played the first 4 acts on co-op with my brother using LAN, and we had the most fun in a long time. Even playing the last was wicked fun This was one of the most enjoyable games I've played on the PC in a long time, and was worth every penny. Fingers crossed that they port gears 2 to pc A TRUE GEM!!
