Gears of War = Awesome!

April 7th, 2007

Holy crap this game rules. I can’t believe this is a early generation Xbox 360 game. I just can’t believe the graphics. The whole thing looks like a cut scene to me. If this is one of the first gen games (released just one year after the launch), you KNOW that in a year or two the games are going to be mind blowing. The 360 is my first system since the PS1 so forgive me for gushing but the more I play this game, the more impressed I am. The atmosphere, the sound effects, the everything… It just all works together to create such an immersive experience. I haven’t been this impressed with a game since Metal Gear Solid. And the cut scenes are incredible (lifelike movement, lips that almost track with the dialog). Just incredible. The voice of Lance Henriksen doesn’t hurt at all. Of course, I suck at it but that will change (I hope). If I can ever get Clint online again we’re going to test out what I think is sorely lacking from Halo 2 – co-op play over Xbox Live. Running around killing each other is fun and all but playing through the game together will just rule. I can’t wait.

    Sorry, I’ve been busy running the website – ka-CHOW! jk

    Seriously, I’m ready to play… This game is awesome and I like how you need to stay covered to avoid getting hit by enemy fire. Graphics are truly awesome – just as good as the past time I played a PC game (Doom 3 about a year ago). Co-op play should be awesome and is my preferred way of playing. I’m not a competitive person – I just like working through the stories.
