it definatly is a great rent jus now wow facter after it being the 4th GoW but the old ones were great so maybe not a buy but definatly a fun game jus not much different it was just thrown together with the same stuff that worked ever other time jus so they could make some money this year n not let the franchise die im sure the next GoW will have something epic to remember for sure they were just buying time til the new xbox comes out
Fairly routine squad-based game except the aiming/shooting is a bit better than usual and the concept of changing characters/paths as story develops in interesting. Enjoyed the yea/nay on challenges at beginning of each battle, too. I am not a big fan of war games but this one was fun to play. I played longer than planned but it wasn't compelling enough to finish.
Epic blunder to say the least ... here's a great idea, lets outsource one of the greatist game franchises of all time and allow a company; that has not been involved with Gears until now; and let them to take away an essential weapon slot, invite a QA nightmare of glitches and break up the campaign into a drawn out series of ranked death matches.
I got to the the campaign mansion section, hit the eject button, returned the game ... and never looked back.
Gears of War set the high water mark on gaming as we know it today and now this? how the mighty have fallen.
