8.5Fantastic

This was probably the game that got me into first person shooters. The cover based shooting was dope, graphics were amazing, co-op was really well done...oh and your gun is also a CHAINSAW. C'mon.

I watched the other 2 on youtube. That's how amazing the story and gameplay were. Too bad they weren't on PC or it would be a 9.5 at least.

Gears of War 1 was, in my opinion, the best game of the series. This game offered plenty of exciting moments, such as the three encounters with the Berserkers, escaping the Brumark, and defeating General RAAM. The characters were good and the storyline, while nothing to write home about, was decent enough to keep me interested. COLE TRAIN BABY!!!!!!!!!!

While this game did spawn the generic cover based third person shooter, I love this game. Theres a reason why many devs copied that same formula after gears, its because it was such a good game. Epic nailed the bleak grim atmosphere, and paired with the great soundtrack and characters I can connect with and the great story its understandable why many people copied the same formula, but no one could have captured it as well as epic did with gears 1. the sequels were a bit ehhh but this one was amazing.

Generic and grey, but can still be pretty fun.

6.0Fine

Gears of War is a solid shooter - all the weapons feel varied yet balanced, blind fire has a decent level of accuracy without being overpowered, and there's just the right amount of screen shake when you're hit. It's a shame that much else falls short. The story is for the most part entirely absent, and when it dares to poke it's ugly head, it's plain boring. The protagonist is insanely unlikeable - a one-dimensional, one-emotion, macho-prat, who couldn't feel less relatable, and the side characters are less annoying yet just as shallow and forgettable. Towards the end the gameplay does begin to get repetitive, which is a shame as I found the non-shooting Beserker sections to be the most intense and fun parts of the game.
