Storyline

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. He rejoins the army, and, with the help of Alpha squad members Augustus Cole ... Written by GEARSMAN

Unique action experience. It started a revolution.
24 July 2009 | by (Noctropolis) – See all my reviews

"Gears Of War" seriously smashes any other War-Action video game from the new millennium. This is probably the most spectacular game of it's kind when it comes to unlimited action, gore, visuals, sound, and even dialogs. The weak point is the plot because it doesn't let you explore more of it but oh! who cares when it's all about action?! This game started a revolution in video games because it creates a whole new world based on not-so real humans battling aliens in an Apocalyptic scenario.

The visuals are just impressive and you won't get better. The sound is impressive and I would compare it to any action movie from the likes of "Independence Day" or even the almighty "Terminator 2: Judgment Day".

This is the prime example of the XBOX 360's power. It's a must have for any video game lover. The online mode is just as addictive and spectacular.

Please get this game and be part of the new history of video games.
