Game Description:Gears of War was revolutionary enough to earn multiple critics honors at E3 2006, and it's easy to see why. You're Marcus Fenix, a soldier with a face chiseled from granite and a will forged from iron. Lead your squad in humanity's desperate last stand against the Locust Horde, an endless swarm of horrifying creatures. You're completely outnumbered and outgunned in this third-person tactical action shooter. And you're the last chance we've got. Tactical maneuvers and teamwork are key, cover doesn't last, and fellow soldiers react with heightened AI. The brand-new Unreal Engine 3 powers Gears of War's cinematic experience, creating an environment realistic enough to walk into...if you've got the guts.
