Gamespot gives Gears of War a Spectacular 9.6
says all: Gears of War is an outstanding technical achievement, but in addition to looking and sounding amazing, it’s a seriously awesome action game.
I can’t say I’m surprised by this at all. I have been waiting for this game for a very, very, very long time. I wouldn’t accept anything less. The surprising thing to me is that 1up gave it a 10. Now that’s a shock.
