A Totally Insane Game That Everyone Should Play!

Gears of War (PC)
Advantages: An amazing title!
I totally fell in love with this game the first time I played it! The PC version is better in many ways to the Xbox 360 version, because it features better graphics and new content (with the ability to ride on a Brumak (a giant beast that is filled with rocket launchers and all kinds of other death dealing abilities!).
Story: Centred around a team of 5 'Gears', who are desperately trying to fight off the ever advancing Locust (beings that have lived underground for many years) and whom humanity managed to really annoy and they have come to the surface! It really makes you feel for the characters' plight!
Gameplay: The addictive gameplay comes from the fact you can hide behind waist-high walls and fire a variety of weapons at the enemy. The Locust come in all shapes and sizes (from the tiny infantry class to the massive boomers) and you can kill them in a variety of ways (through tagging them with grenades), to chainsawing them in half with your bayonet (which never gets old). Other weapons include the Hammer Of Dawn (a giant orbital weapon that allows you to laser your enemies to death)!
Graphics and Sound: The colour grey has never looked quite so good in this game, with the PC being able to stretch the environment and character models to their limit! The guns all sound great, with the haunting music in the background really setting the background in this Gears game!
The online mode is also hilarious, with all the abilities (including chainsawing other players) to be used and with a load of great multiplayer maps really finishes the package!
Summary: Really great cover-based shooter that ticks all the boxes!
