Gears of War is a singleplayer & multiplayer first person shooter game. You have three difficulty levels to choose from which are casual, hardcore and insane. If you are new to shooters you want to start off with casual and also to get the extra gamer points. The story is very good and you can play it by yourself or which is even more fun multi-player with a friend. There are a total of 5 Acts in the game and your first play through will take about 7-10 hours. You get fairly attached to the characters in this game they are outspoken and very funny at times. After you beat the game you can go back and player on hardcore or insane to get even more gamer points. The online mode is a blast where there are 4 different game variations to choose from.
This game is filled with alots of action, blood and gore so if your sqeemish beware. You will have the most fun in this playing with a friend and online. I give this game a 4.6 out of 5. If you love shooters this game is a must have.
