Some game critics would call it another combat game where the star of the whole story plot would have to defeat all enemies present to get to the boss and advance to next levels but Gears of War offers something more in this Xbox offering. Packaged with upbeat soundtracks and high quality sound effects, it is truly some that will entice trigger happy gamers to check out.
Marcus Fenix, the star of the game is a former soldier who was been locked up for being accused of being a traitor in the opening storyline. He is freed from lockup to help a team called the Delta Squad to fend off the impending threat being carried out by the villains branded as Locusts. Their mission is to find the Alpha Squad but to be able to do so; they must effectively get past the spread Locusts through the various acts and levels of the game.
Finding out the weak points and being alert from the hiding villains in the game is the main ploy. With beefed up soldiers, it would take some time before Fenix and his troops would be killed. Unless of course they are sitting ducks and not careful of his surroundings, the game is a test of awareness, alertness and pinpoint accuracy to rule the threat that the Locusts have carried out.
