I have been playing Gears of War since the very first game, which was brilliant. But a much as I loved it, this one is even better, possibly the best in the trilogy. It has brilliant cinematic sequences, a great storyline, relatable characters, and also a fair amount of gore, without being over the top. The multiplayer versus mode is great, and the Horde mode is an easy and fun way to waste a few hours with friends. At 12 bucks, this game is an absolute steal, you'd have to be a fool not to download it. Five stars, without a doubt.
