The Gears have landed

I have to keep this shortish as I have very important work to attend to (ahem). Gears of War arrived at my desk last night and the show seemed to go on forever! Ive been waiting for this game for 2 years and it hasnt let me down! Got home and tore into it for 2 hours and a bit this morning. I wont bore you with stats or graphical engine data but all I can say is

Graphics, Sound, Gameplay, Xbox Live Multiplayer - Fuckin Savage!

The game looks absolutely stunning. You can say the same about many super models. But looking good is only half the deal. The game plays superb, granted it takes a good 10 minutes to get used to the cover option, but once you get it down you'll be cutting locusts in 2 like a pro! Its one of the closet cinematic experiences in a video game that Ive come across. Ive been playing video games since I was 6. From Head over Heels to Commando and everything else in between! Gears of War ranks up at the very, very top. Cliffy B and the crew at Epic must be extremely proud as being one of the first companies to really deliver a true next generation video game!

Anyway Im off back to...work...ahem!
