Gears of War

Long before I write a review, which will be extremely difficult to do, I need to get this out there:

Gears of War is one of the best games ever made. Period.

I don't care who you are, what systems you own, how biased you are. Gears is it. It may take a level or two to fully sink in that the shooting action isn't generic or derivative. It took me until level two during the nightime raid before I finally "got it," and it was one of those moments so ridiculously good, you just want to cry and hug everyone involved in the making of it. It's more than just damned fine graphics and gore. It's the experience, the intensity, and the incredible feeling of being right in the middle of this desperate struggle.

This is the first genuine classic of this generation, and I say that with a full two chapters yet to go, and I haven't even attempted online multi-player. Do whatever have to do to play this game. If you're a gamer, it's an experience you deserve.
