Gears of War (PC)

 

Released near the end of the Xbox 360's first year on the market, Gears of War was a defining moment for Microsoft's console. Its gameplay relied heavily on forcing you to take cover to avoid enemy shots, which meant that it required a healthy dose of...

Gears of War (PC)

 

Gears of War burst onto the Xbox 360 and ruled the online roost until the Halo 3 juggernaut came along and blasted it out of the way. Now PC owners get a chance to see what all the fuss was about as Gears of War arrives to sorely test your Windows XP-...

This review was based on a copy of the game provided by the publisher.

Gears of War PC Review

 

When Gears of War was first announced, press releases for this third-person shooter always mentioned that it was from the creators of the Unreal games. And now with the upcoming Unreal Tournament 3, the videos say that it's from the creators of Gears...

Despite some complaints with the multiplayer mode and Windows Live quibbles, Gears of War is still a damn fine PC port of an excellent action game. It even includes a level editor so aspiring mod-makers can start fiddling with all kinds of custom...

You can call it a tough market, a crowded gaming climate, or just plain ol' nerdvana, but Epic Games picked a brutal launch window to deliver the highly acclaimed Xbox 360 shooter Gears of War to PC gamers. Surrounded by huge AAA titles like Call of...

Gears of War

 

As you may have heard by now, Gears of War has had immense success on the 360. It was pretty much the title which carried the console till the arrival of Halo 3. Even now, Gears is one of the most played games over Xbox Live, so a port to the PC was,...

Great port; smooth performance, great controls, added content, weapons are fun to use

Games for Windows Live issues, ordering your squad; issues I had with the original: short-ish campaign, rigid, droning art style and linear level design

Gears of War

 

With improved graphics and new single-player levels, the Epic 360 hit makes its way onto the PC in style.

Fantastic stop-and-pop combat; improved graphics over the 360 version; excellent new single-player content

Battles can feel a little repetitive after a while

Gears of War

 

Gears of War was a huge hit on the Xbox 360 and it was THE title that showed what the console was capable of. Given that Epic started out as a PC developer, I figured that there would be a PC port sooner or later. The game uses the Unreal 3 engine so...

It's a great port with a good chunk of a new chapter added in. The game needs a beefy system though and those who already played the 360 version might not find that a new chapter would warrant a new purchase.

its a good game but the it gets boring... 2 many glitchs and wat not.....halo3 ftw Post a Comment

If you're still a bit shaky about GoW for PC, just chainsaw an enemy for the first time and watch the pure gore and blood splattered camera in its fully glory, then come back to me and say that you don't want to play the game. I dare you. The port...

Worry not - this is no slapdash 360 port

Immersive, beefy guns ; Better length and gameplay than on 360 ; Co-op play triples the fun

Repetitive ; You need a Windows Live account ; Occasionally stupid squadmates

Gears of War Review

 

Despite clunky controls, the gears keep turning.

See more screens from Gears of War ... Very little was lost in the port from console to PC. The graphics look better than ever, and there's non-stop excitement, except we wish that Gears went a little further in customizing the controls for the new...

Product Specifications

Gears of War for Windows features the amazing tactical action and multiplayer excitement found in the Xbox 360 version, but also adds a variety of all-new content, including three new multiplayer maps, a new multiplayer mode, game editor, five new game chapters and DirectX10 support. Gears of War thrusts gamers into a deep and harrowing story of humankind's epic battle for survival against the Locust Horde, a nightmarish race of creatures that surface from the bowels of the planet. With Gears of War, Epic returns gamers to the massively scoped worlds, memorable characters, co-operative gameplay, and hyper-realistic combat that gamers have come to expect from the franchise, plus a few new surprises.
