Gears of War was four dollars at Game Stop. Now while I don't recommend shopping at a glorified pawn shop this was quite a deal. I made it though chapter one, but my heart wasn't in it. I kind of half-assley made it though the levels. I kept telling myself it's gonna get better. You're going to find out Marcus's past and it'll be worth it. My interest peaked when I was given a gun that called down the power of the sun. I fired a laser that fired a perpendicular solar beam at the enemy, but I was disappointed to learn that it only works when the game finds it convenient. Similar to the hover-disk-thing in Enslaved. Finally when chapter one was over I found out by a prompt in the game that I would have to start ordering my troops, since I was now in charge. This reminded of Brutal Legend. How the game started as a great single player experience but became too complicated when one had to split their attention one hundred different ways. I really didn't want a repeat of that experience so shelfed the game. I may come back some day. But probably not.
