Best game ever? Not quite… I think the Halo dynasty still takes the cake for that award, however Gears of War does have the best graphics I’ve ever seen in a video game.
It’s got some nice gameplay features, but they’re hard to get used to. The duck and cover and the blind firing options are cool, but it really makes me miss the freedom that you’re given in Halo 2… and I’m assuming Halo 3. 😉
The one thing that was really disappointing was the length of the game. Don’t get me wrong, I like video games, but I’m not the kind of guy who is going to sit down and not drop the control until I finish the entire game. I like to take my time, play for an hour here and there. That’s what I did with this game, and after about a week of playing… I’m done. Do stellar graphics take away from the overall content? Maybe.
My Rating: 8
Rent or Buy?
This is definitely a game that you should keep on your shelf.
