Now i just bought this from eb games, and i cant really get into it. Why does everyone like it so much. Now I like halo 2 and all the other games but htis one really doesn't grab me.

Great game it gets a little boring when ur playing by yourself so try to get a friend to play co-op with you and the game heats up especially when u play live

The game is particularly good when you take advantage of an HD television, and its definitely more fun playing with someone else on a way harder difficulty. I'm not sure why it's not grabbing you, i absolutely loved that game, though i suppose it's appeal is only week long and once you play out your addiction it's gone for a long time.

Gears of war is one of the most graphically and tech intensive games created so far. The storyline is quite good, but it depends on your sense of liking People like the game mainly because of its replay value, and graphic niceness

I honestly was hooked the second I started playing. Probably one of the best games I've played in awhile and one of the main reasons I got an Xbox360

The online feature does give this game a replay value. The cover and duck aspect is flawless and the active reload does add some challenge into the gameplay. Although this is not your avergage Halo or GoldenEye shooter, it does gives a new level of depth to the shooter genre. It does takes a while to get used to with the controls and strategy aspects of the games but all in all it is an awesome game.

Its a little slower then Halo but when playing with a friend and having to go into live battle and being shot at, just to save your buddy cause he got kill and then run for cover while still shooting. Just keep playing it. It gets better as you get deeper into the game. The first board I didn't think it was all that much either but after getting use to the controls and getting deeper into it. You won't be able to put it down.
