Gears of War is going to win more awards than are even offered. It is simply one of the best looking, smoothest playing games of the past 5 or so years. It lived up to and surpassed the hype preceding it's release with flying colors. I beat the game three times in three days... I have never played through a game three times as I would quickly move onto something different... simply put... this game is the ultimate shznit for rizell.
