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

Trivia

The first portions of what would become this game were showcased in the early showing of the game's engine, Unreal Engine 3.0. Microsoft was so amazed with the visuals they saw they signed Epic to develop the game further for their system, the XBox 360. 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 »

Terrific game!
19 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I knew from the start Gears would be a great game. I didn't doubt it for one second.

Graphics- On non HD T.V.s it looks amazing. So much detail went into almost everything. But on HD you will be blown away. Either way, it looks great.

Sound- Probably the only bad thing. The sounds and everything are great its just the voice work is a bit caveman.

Violence- Had to bring it up because when I first chainsawed an enemy I was like "Whoah!". Definitely a gory game.

Gameplay- Sort of like Resident Evil 4. The controls may take a bit time getting used to but once you figure them out aiming and shooting will be simple.

Overall- Great game. A must buy for 360 owners.

10/10
