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

Did You Know?


A remake titled Gears of War: Ultimate Edition was released on August 25th, 2015 for the Xbox One. This version features completely redone graphics displayed in 1080p with new character models, textures, and improved lighting. Every cutscene has been recaptured with new animations and cinematography, but all of the original voice-overs are still used. The previously PC exclusive bonus chapters at the start of Act V are now integrated into the campaign. Some gameplay mechanics from the sequels have also been integrated such as 3-D dodge rolling, reviving from cover, and enemy spotting. The multiplayer now renders at 60 frames per second, and features modes from the sequels such as Team Deathmatch and King of the Hill. See more »


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 »

Gears is a Must Play
13 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For anyone who owns a Xbox360 and is not playing Gears of War right now, it is imperative that you do so. Gears of War is an epic game created by.. well.. Epic Games. It is a 3rd person shooter that utilizes a somewhat tactical feel. You fight an alien/monster horde called the Locusts, and old-school shooter style, there are large bosses you must kill every so often. The online is more team based than the campaign mode, because you can revive your teammates (if you can reach them in time), and four guns always wins against one.

If you are questioning purchasing this game, you will regret it if you don't. Go out and buy Gears NOW!
