Storyline

Just when the humans of the planet Sera attain peace after a 79 year war amongst each other, the Locust horde comes out the planet's crust to kill every human on the planet. Billions are slaughtered. 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.

Trivia

Rather than give a vague time frame or simply say, "When it's done," when asked about the release date, Epic said that the game would be released on "Emergence Day". Emergence Day is an important event in the game as the day the Locusts emerged and attacked. However, the developers did not tell the press exactly what calendar date Emergence Day fell on until September 2006 when it was finally announced to be 7 November 2006. See more »

Goofs

In the flash back to when the resonator was deployed, Baird hangs back and watches the resonator briefly before Marcus tells him to hurry up. When the player actually witnesses this scene, Baird immediately joins the others after setting up the resonator. See more »

man, this game rules
25 November 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Firstly i would just like to state a simple instruction, -BUY THIS GAME-. anyway now that is out of the way onto the game-play. the game-play itself is deeply entertaining, although some may find it a little repetitive, they will also tell you it is fun! the only reason for not liking this is if you are a girl who hates action games, sad i know.... the average player will not be impressed with the opening events in the game, but then again, you have choice's of which paths to take, and the range of decision making is outstanding!

The graphics are no less than great, but then again this is on the Xbox 360. one of the best games and a well spent £37.97 GET THIS GAME!!!
