Gears of War Released Today

For all the X360 owners....today is the day! This game looks stunning and all of the gaming sites have given 9.5-10/10 ratings. Is this the Halo killer?

Re: Gears of War Released Today

it looks good. but fps's that look good are a dime a dozen. hopefully this can be a bit more than that. definitely promising.

Re: Gears of War Released Today

Gears of War isn't actually a FPS, it has a third person view. And it's not nearly as much run and shoot as Halo. It's far more based on cover and tactics. I'll give a better review when I have it in my hands in a few days. My local asshat Gamestop isn't getting it until tomorrow.

Re: Gears of War Released Today

yeah, do share though. make sure you let us know what FPS type games you DO like too, so the review is useful for comparison.

Well, I can give you my preferences on shooters now. Generally with first person shooters like Halo and Battlefield, I'll play the story mode once just to beat it, and then get a lot of use out of the online multiplayer matches.

I tend to lean more towards third person shooters, when I'm not online(Splinter Cell, SOCOM, etc). I'm a big fan of shooters that aren't so linear and allow more than one way to beat a level. If I play those type of games online, it's usually only the co-op modes, because the versus games generally turn into Halo style death matches.

From what I've read about Gears of War, it's most like SOCOM, since you're in control of a squad, and tactics are important. I've also read that the co-op is very well done.

Sorry dmek...it looks like some stores are getting them today (mine about 7pm tonight here in Austin, TX) and some will get them tomorrow. I will give some details in the morning.

FYI - my favorite FPS is the Rainbow Six Series.

Gears sure looks kickass, should be the first killer app for the 360.

Re: Gears of War Released Today

I've recently just gotten into the whole online shooter thing. Just started playing SOCOM, tough game, I still feel like a chump. I like Star Wars Battlefront online alot too. I'm not great but I can hold my own.
