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.

Wow...just got this. Gears of War 2 is superior in every way. The A.I. in the campaign is terrible, and the story is non-existent. It's still got the same old gameplay that I love, but it's not nearly as good as it's said to be. Khuutra's review is spot on.

Very over-rated! Controls are rough, first level was too difficult for a level 1 on casual. Too much repeating the same difficult battles. Can't see where you are going at all when running. On the plus side... Graphics are excellent, being able to revive team mates is cool. Doubt I'll be able to finish this game, but I'll give it a try.

thelalaby -

Regardless, though, Gears of War had a whopping 9 weeks over 100k, and 7 weeks over 250k.

MGS4 had 6 weeks over 100k, and only 2 weeks over 250k.

Even if it was Christmas/Holiday when Gears debuted, it still speaks volumes about how well the userbase on the X360 bought Gears. Especially considering the X360 had under 1/2 the userbase the PS3 did when MGS4 debuted.

Gears of War isn't the free for all type of game, it wouldn't work well without teams of at least 2, cos the game is much slower paced than your typical free for all games such as COD4.

I personally didn't like the first one that much. Probably it just wasn't for me. The reason being i just felt the gameplay got boring pretty fast i think. I had hoped for a more in depth story too. This game was good though, and i think the first title to truly give gamers a next gen experience. It is beautiful and to most people very exciting. The highlight of the game for me were the berzerkers. I thought those really spiced it up a bit.

Gears of war use the most high-technical game engine known as " Unreal Engine 3" while the top one is cryengine 2 for Crysis.

Gears of war come at the fall of 2006. It had unbelivable texture and smooth, real-time lightning and shadow effect.

Beside, this game shows a very interesting gameplay that is still the most innovative shooting game.

Campaign with co-op is great. Multiplayer is very shiny and has brutal kills, but very laggy and quite broken (it gets boring owning everyone with the shotgun and grenades...over and over and over...)

Get it for the singleplayer and co-op. Buy COD4 for the versus multiplayer.
