Gears of War is a heavily action-packed game for Windows. In my humble opinion, this game opened a new era for gaming. This game first saw the light when it came out for the XBOX 360's opening. Gamers all over the world were thrilled by all you could do. I don't want to spoil this game for you since it is so great. So I will try no to say anything about the plot. It suffices to say that you are a renegade soldier who is taken out of a prison in the middle of some kind of attack by alien forces. Right away you are forced into your first fight, which is like watching a Hollywood action film. This game introduces a great cover system. In theory, you can cover behind any structure or object that you like, and you can switch between covers almost instantly, by rolling out of one, into another. This is a third-person shooter, by the way. There are plenty of guns for you to use, and let me tell you this: this game is bloody, way bloody. If you are easily impressionable, you might want to pass on this one. But if you are looking for a game that delivers fast action and great graphics, this is the one.
