    Gears of WAR in a third person shooting game that masters almost every aspect of what is expected from shooting games. The way this is done is through a flawless cover system and a paint ball feel to the game. Gears of War has multiple weapons that are balanced out evenly that make the game fair. Gears of War has both COOP and Multi player which vary significantly. The Coop mode can be played as with one player or you can choose to team up with a buddy to kill some locust. The Coop seems short but their the difficulty levels will keep you playing. The multi player is at its best when playing over xbox live but be aware as their are constant trash talkers and people who leave early in the game. Over the game is excellent and should be purchased by anyone who owns an xbox360.
