This is one of the best games ever made. Easily among my top 5 favorite games.

Story 9.5/10

The story is excellent, but not fleshed out in the game.

Graphics 9.9/10

Could use more colour, but otherwise among the best. When this game came out, it started the HD gaming trend. It showed people what a proper 360 game would look like, and made my buy the console.

Commercial 11/10

Damn best commercial for a video game ever. Just had to mention it. I am refering to the comercial with the ending song from Donnie Darko. Forget the name of the song.

Gameplay 9.7/10

Online Chainsaw fights are dull, but the cover system and almost everything else was perfected in this title.

Value 10/10

Although Online was added on late into the games development, it's almost flawless. Except for chainsaw newbs, this game is unique, and keeps me interested years after release

Overall 9.9/10

I know you might not agree with me, but I love the gameplay, the story, the online experience, and everything about this game. This game was the reason I bought a 360, and I do not regret it at all. This is still my favorite current gen game, and i honestly see nothing that can top this for me. Maybe Mass Effect 2, or Uncharted 2, but thats it. Halo, Gears 2, Resistance, Killzone, Resident Evil 5, MGS, Lost Odyssey, and even Mass Effect 1, are all inferior titles to me.

Just to inform you people who are worrying about it being less than 6m, it's actually at 6.14m because of the Gears of War triple pack.
