In a desperate move, humans retreat to the Jacinto Plateau, the last safe place on the planet, and use satellites and chemical weapons to destroy the other 90% of the planet, and hopefully their threat along with them. When the locusts break through the plateau's defenses, Marcus Fenix, a young soldier in the elite Gears unit of the Coalition of Organized Governments (COG), disobeys orders to hold his position at Jacinto's defenses to try and save his father trapped between the Locusts and his own men. Caught an accused of deserting, he is sentenced to 40 years in Jacinto prison. 14 years into the sentence is where the game picks up, when Marcus is rescued by his military colleague and friend, Dominic Santiago.

awesome is not the word!
14 February 2008 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

This is a game that is beyond good, even beyond great, even beyond awesome.

this awesome is derived from the unbelievably addictive online play that is worth the 14.99 price tag. this game is a must by simply because of the graphic brilliance in multi-player crisp controls AND THE LASHINGS OF GORE the game scores points for the story mode but just a few. it isn't really all that good and the story is the same as many other games but it is still fun.

get this game for the single player and be entertained, play the multi-player and be astonished
