Gears of War

Gear of War!! Yup I'm gonna do it! Like it or...............................Like it! W/E





Okay I am going to start this off with a question and I am going to answer it! Why am I writing this one out? For 2 reasons one I am writing this out because I don't feel like......talking through this and 2 I don't have a USB memory thing because it is at my cousins house! lol So now that that is out of the way let start this shiz!


Okay so Story.............it doesn't have too much of a story to it! But I will try to tell about what they are trying to do! OKay so it starts off in a Millitary Prison where War "trator" Marcus Fenix is imprisoned for disobeying an order. When Dom comes to the door of the cell and gets him out because nearly the entire planet's life is dead and only few have survived. But the Locust invasion began like before the game even started so I am seeing a prequil somewhere in the future...........I hope!! But anyway it is all about stopping the hordes of Locusts from destroying what remains of the planet and extinguish the rest of Human life! and you have 5 missions in the game so it is pretty short. I am proud to say I finnaly made it to the last boss on insane mode and Now I know why they call it insane...........................................B ECAUSE IT WILL DRIVE YOU INSANE TRYING TO BEAT HIM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I haven't beaten him yet!! *Sigh* Anyway I give the story a 8 it is good but needed more of a story!



Okay Graphics................they are good I like them! I mean what else is there to say!?!?! I could go into detail and I will a bit but if I got way into it I will have a 2 page review just on the graphics portion of this review! Okay the scenes in the game are very unique I mean that in a good way too because i have never seen such destruction in a game enviroment! The CGI and the animations are the same in the cutscenes and in the game so there is not much to go into there! the enemies are numerous and the gore is awesome! Although sometimes I play with the extreme content of because it can mess you up really bad when you can't see the screen.........and that in this game is not a good thing when you got like 5 enemies around you! But I am in love with the lancer..........for those who do not know what that is it is a chainsaw gun!!!!!! and it is awesome!!! but for the graphics I give it a 10! Booooooo Yaaaaaaa!



Controls and gameplay!! I liked the controls and game play mechanics on this game one because it runs on the Unreal Engine from the Unreal tournament game and it is something to be happy about......believe me I should know! lol But yeah the controls are different depending on what you buy it on but for the review I am doing I am going to go over the controls for the 360...........Okay so you have a main button or as I like to call it the "Action Button" sort of like the one in RE4 you press it to do the action that is shown on the screen and so on! This game features something called the "active reload system" and what it does it make you hit the button twice and land it in the spot on the reload bar and depending on if you do it right you will get a damage boost or could get you killed because your weapon will jam and it takes longer to reload the gun! I love the Melee in this game and it got it's own button! lol bepening on the weapon equipped you can hit the heck out of someone or................................................ .saw them to bits and sling blood everywhere.....that is with extreme content on though if it is off you just cut them and they are toast! But anyway the controls and gameplay gets a 10!



Okay sound not too much to say on that one but it is not bad! Some of the sounds are cool the voice actors are good! The screams from the locusts and corpsers are wicked and let it be known I hate corpsers they suck................................BAD!!!!!!!!!!! !! BTW the pic above is a corpser! Okay moving right along the music is intense and it can get annoying but the gameplay makes up for it! I give the sound a 8.5!




Okay for the wrap up on this review! I love the game but it does have language..................alot of language! But yeah if you are over 17 go pick up a copy if not I would wait if I were you because it is not for kids! But yeah overall it is about a 9 I would say! I am now going to put a trailer and someone getting chainsawed! haha!



Viewer discression is advised! and Mario if this is too bad I will take it down just let me know!



I hope you enjoyed the review and as soon as Gears 2 comes out and I beat it expect a review on it!

Yeppers. Gears of War.

The vid is acceptable in Marvman's eyes...
Chainsaw FTW.
