| Best game of 2006 by far.
Wow. Gears of War is an astounding game. Top to bottom, the game never ceases to amaze me. The single player, while the story wasn't exactly amazing, and the campaign wasn't exactly that long, the game play is amazing. AMAZING! "Stop and pop" is the way to play this game, as once said by Cliffy B.

The campaign is relatively easy on the lower difficulty, but when you ramp up the difficulty to Hardcore or Insane once you've unlocked it, this game will make you tear your hair out in frustration. I've beaten the game on Insane, it was difficult. Very difficult.

The multi-player is better. I don't even know how that's possible. But it is. The thrill of pulling off that head-shot with the sniper rifle or killing three people from the same blast from the Hammer of Dawn, it never gets old.

Oh, the Hammer of Dawn is a giant space laser.

The only complaint is that you can't break the chainsawing animation, so when you clearly could've dodged the blade in real life, you aren't allowed to move, unless it glitches, and even then, you die when they're not near you.

Overall this game will make you tear your hair out. In a good way. 10/10.
