    Gears of War, an Xbox 360 exclusive game that blends tactical action with survival horror, thrusts gamers into a deep and harrowing tale of humankind's epic battle for survival against the Locust Horde, a nightmarish race of creatures that surface from the bowels of the planet.

Built around a revolutionary third-person tactical combat system and breathtaking, high-definition visuals from the Unreal Engine 3, Gears of War immerses you in a horrifying tale of war and survival.

    The gameplay is focused on a fire team co-op so advanced that your A.I. teammates are indiscernible from human players. Voice recognition and real-time lip synching heighten the absorbing experience. The Unreal Engine 3 technology brings out the smallest details in the largest of battles. With GOW you're sure to experience a rich, dynamic world where characters spring to life. Speaking of life, the battlefield is a lethal place. To survive, you must suppress your enemy with blindfire, take cover in interactive environments, and use weapons and teammates to outwit your dreaded, inhuman foes. And with a title like GOW, it would be shame if you couldn't get online and challenge live gamers. With the next-generation of Xbox Live, you'll be able to experience individualized matchmaking, view player statistics, earn player achievements, customize games, and build personalized gamer profiles.

    Gears of War shined bright at Microsoft's pre-E3 press briefing, but a deeper demo at Microsoft's E3 booth revealed many of the game's mechanics. GOW is built with both the hardcore and casual gamer in mind. But, instead of selecting a difficulty level at the start of the game, GOW offers a choice at the beginning of each level. In the vein of choose your own adventure, you can select between a difficult or easy path. And it's not just a simple choice of battling tougher enemies; each path (explained by a comrade) represents additional content that is crucial to the storyline. After easing your way into the experience of the gameplay with the simpler paths, you can go back and test your skills on the more difficult routes and never feel like you've played through the areas before.

    Ripping a magazine free and replacing it in the midst of bloody combat is no easy task. GOW simulates this difficult action by forcing you to perfect your reloading skills. To be effective in combat you'll need to allot for time to successfully reload your weapon. Do it well and the battle is yours; do it poorly and you may actually jam your gun. Time it perfectly and you'll earn a bonus with a temporary damage boost. Though GOW clearly showcases a sci-fi experience, its roots are in tactical, realistic combat scenarios. Therefore, running and gunning makes for seriously erratic shooting. Think about what you're doing. Unless wasting ammo is your goal, you better stop, aim, shoot, and then move on. Otherwise, the Locust Horde might swarm you and take your life.

    Gears of War presents a focused and well-paced cinematic experience, and nothing ruins that faster than a time-consuming exploration of every switch or button to find the elusive trigger to open a door. This game introduces a "point of interest" button that comes up on the screen so you can immediately interact with the necessary item to move forward in your gameplay. GOW certainly offers drool-worthy graphics, but the mechanics have also received equal attention. Keep your eyes and ears on high alert for a release date, as Microsoft hasn't let the cat out of the bag on when gamers will be able to tackle this great-looking and great-playing title.

    Gears Of War GFWL
    I can confirm that the GFWL key which will be provided by GamingDragon after the purchase of this Gears Of War 1 GFWL Game works fine with no doubts.I Recently bought one for my self and you can get your key after the purchase .Anyway but you may need to identify yourself by sending them a copy of your ID to GamingDragons. With this Gears of War 1 GFWL key you can still enjoy the fun part of Coop Campaign though you miss the versus matches.

    Great Buy
    This was a great buy. Excellent game for an excellent price. If your a fan of the Gears franchise but never played the original this is a must get. The campaign for this game is thrilling all the way through to the end. The online game play is also a great change of pace. There are many modes and fun games to play online. Overall a great buy

    Great game - smooth installation.
    This game is is a classic. If you like shooters and you've never played it I highly recommend it. Lots of fun gameplay and a solid story.

    It is also worth noting that Gaming Dragons has done a pretty great job providing instructions for getting the game up and running. I'm running on Windows 10 and had no issues getting the game to work. I only mention it because you never know what you're going to get when you buy something that isn't on Steam ;)

    Fun look at the past still fun to play online for a little bit
    Its still a fun multi game not sure its really that worth it if you have already played it a lot on 360 when it orginally released. People are still playing it online which is great. It sucks though because the netcode it uses is not so great. Graphics are great for its time and it runs well on pc.

    Gears of war is the best game
    Gears of war is my all time favorite game.

    My friend tate and i have logged so many hours on this game on 360 that we can be considered pro's at the online, if u don't know how many hours that is go ahead and look i'll wait...okay did u check? that's a lot of hours huh? well that's how good this game is. There are a few differences bewteen the 360 version there are 3 extra online maps that im pretty sure they added to gears 2 and there is an extra 2 hours of missions in the campain which are getting added to the ultimate edition on xbox one and pc. So if your looking to buy this to amp up for the new edition than i would recomend buying it here rather than from amazon it's 70 fucking bucks oh and if your going to use a 360 controller for this on pc you will want to keep a few things in mind the game is designed for keyboard and mosue so getting on walls is a bit different sometimes the controls won't work the way u want, and most people will be using a keyboard and mouse which is a much more responsive interface but this game was made for controller so if u take the time to learn and have patience than u will be able to get better and take them mouse chukkers to the bank lol.

    Gears of War review from a Playstation and PC fan
    This was my first time playing Gears of War. After patching the game and installing the games for windows live client game works flawlessly and you can save your game or settings as well as bring up the xbox dashboard (I have a silver account of course).

    The verdict this game is definitely as good as it was hyped up to be even 8 years after it came out. Screen tearing on my 4.4GHz i7 gta 760 16gb ram was fixed in the Nvidia control panel global settings and this game looks and plays solid. Great guns, high difficulty even on lowest and variety of aliens to slaughter. Buy this game or the remastered PC version with multiplayer coming out shortly. 5/5 a must play even for an uncharted fan like myself.

    Don't expect anybody online playing this game though :( Add me on xbox gamertag simianstar26

    Great Game - Better Than 360 Version
    Just to point out to people, I am doing this review for my most favorite game series of all time, so please expect this review to be a little bias in places due to this reason.
    I had bought this for the 360 around 2007 and back then I did not own a PC nor did I think about gaming on a PC back then. When I played it on the 360, I really enjoyed the game and would have played at least an hour on it per day. - whether it was on campaign or if it was for versus mode, I played it for at least an hour a night.
    Due to only starting to get into gaming back then, I thought that this was one of the best games around, even today I think that it is still one of the best game series' around.
    Now on to the differences - I have only played about an hour or so on the computer version due to it being my first time playing it today after my purchase of the game, again, only today. At first sight when I had adjusted the video settings to the max, as I knew that my PC could easily handle it, the cutscene at the begining of the campaign story was immeditely better than the 360. The clearity of the video was clearer and shown much more detail than what the 360 version had to offer.
    The next thing I attempted was using the controller initially - I don't usually use a controller for action games on the PC - and I didn't really see any difference between the PC and the 360 versions, so therefore after a short period of about 10 minutes, I changed to the Keyboard and Mouse - as I prefer on PC - I've got to say, I prefer the layout of the keyboard and mouse version than that I do of the controller on the 360, it just feels like it is meant for PC to me. Due to playing the game so much on the 360, I immeditely saw the difference in the way the camera moves. the character (In the campain, it would be Marcus), everything moves so much smoother than I thought of that on the 360. How I remember the 360 version to be is for it to be slow and `sticky` at times, whereas on the PC version it seems to run a lot better overall.
    I've got to say, after my short period of playing the PC version, I much prefer the PC version than that I do of the 360 version now.
    Pros;
    Better overall graphics on PC - as long as your PC can handle it on max settings (won't take much now due to the game being around 7/8 year old).
    Better controls on Keyboard/Mouse layout than on Controller (If you count the 360).
    Better movement than the 360 version and makes it seem like the game runs slightly faster on PC.
    Cons;
    Make sure you have at least 20GB of hard drive space before attempting to download and install - I count this as a con as I am limited on HD space and had to move a few files around to be able to install the game.

    Epicness
    This review is based off the Xbox 360 version.

    This game is a totally awesome game! Definitely worth the purchase, though this was originally made years ago and I believe Gears of War 4 is out now, so the first one I wouldn't of thought would be priced more than £4.99, but at the current price if the PC version has been ported well, then it would be worth it still even at £11.99.

    The gameplay is awesome, the storyline is awesome, the graphics are really good; using the Unreal Engine can't go wrong! The multiplayer was really difficult, and a good competitive challenge. AI was done really well, and putting the game on the hardest difficulty will really push your patience and skills to the max! The gameplay has some awesome features such as being able to use your weapon to chainsaw the enemy in half or being able to pickup the enemy when he's down to either use as your protection or to kill them.

    I would highly recommend this game as this is one of the games you have to play and complete. Hopefully they bring out the others out on PC so you can continue the story with the characters.

    Gameplay - 8/10 (the other games I found was even better regarding gameplay)
    Graphics - 8/10
    Storyline - 8/10

    Best Game Ever
    Very great place to purchase digital copy of Gears of War PC and the cheapest I ever seen too!. This is definitely one of my favorite games of all time, I'm glad I found this site through a fellow Gears of War Player. I admit, first i was hesitant of the legitimacy of this site, but in fact it is definitely a trusted site after I got alot of strong recommendations from people about this site.

    Beast Gears of War out there!!
    This game came out almost a decade to go and to this day still one of my favorite go to third person shooters. The online multiplayer is fun and competitive . The mechanics to this game are like no other and began a likable style that alot of other games have copied. Never had it on the PC but now I can finally say I do thanks to Gaming Dragons.

    Gears PC
    It is very difficult to install on new windows 8.1 but when you do it is worth it.
    The game is a classic and one of the best, if not the best 3rd person shooters to ever hit a console/PC. Highly recommend this game and ion 60 FPS it is smooth bodying with the gnasher for sure.

    Classic Masterpiece
    Where should I start 1st.. Hmm let's see.. Gears of War definitely one of the best third person shooter ... considered to be classic one nowadays. OK fine in terms of gameplay it's not the original idea.. the cover based shooter. But in terms of game that popularized the genre... it's definitely something new at that time

    Gears of War 1: A Classic
    I hope this isn't inappropriate but I will extremely enjoy partaking in thc stimulus while playing this marvelous game. I've been a fan of all gears games and will without a doubt say that the early games are better than the later ones. Yet still happiness is achieved when playing judgement and gears 3. Still Gears 1 from my own personal perspective is for sure a classic if any of the games appeal to you.
