Gears of War Triple Pack
I still don't get it....
I get it, this is a very popular shooter, and I can't disagree, two games PLUS an important DLC for 30 bucks is a great price. But, I rated this package on the games themselves, so even though the deal deserves a ten, that doesn't mean what's in it does. Not to say this game is bad but it's just....(how should I put this?)......not fantastic. They are both fun to play and I can't deny the graphics are good for being a few years old already. But that's all this game is, good, not great, not out-of-this-world, not superior to really anything I've played before. It's gameplay is simple and pretty well flowing. It's the regular LT look RT shoot like on every other FPS, the cover system gives you options once you go up against a wall or any other cover space and press A. You can try to quickly sprint from one cover to another, you can move to a different section of the cover, you can blind-shoot etc., the cover system is really what makes it so well-flowing. You need to pay attention to find out the story, but since I really wasn't listening, I just looked it up online(you can always go with that option). Basically, the base of the first games is that this war called the Pendulum Wars (which lasted 79 years and was the result of the need for Imlusion, a strong liquid power-source fought over by the Coalition of Governments and the Union of Independent Republics) just ended, and right after, an invasion of Locust (some kind of alien-creatures who have dug up from underground) have started to attack! They have gone from one revolution of conflict right into another. The day of the Locust arrival is called Emergence Day, a time where hundreds of thousands of humans were killed. You play as Marcus Fenix, a man sent to jail for leaving his station in time of war to try to save his father, to no avail. Once broken out 14 years after Emergence Day, Marcus is enlisted in the COG army which is currently still fighting the locust, hoping to save the last few human inhabitants. It's pretty much your average human VS. alien scenario. Other than the gameplay and storyline, the sound is also good, but not terrific. The games, in my opinion, are for hardcore players, especially the first game. Number two is slightly easier for the single player who is still just learning FPS, but it's still hard. The All Fronts pack adds a lot of content that is worth having, just adding to this deals effectiveness. Overall, like I haven't said it enough, these games are good and fun to play, but I don't understand why people think it's the best shooter ever, it's really just average, that's all I'll think of it as. This is just my personal opinion though.
It's Half Decent
Honestly these games weren't bad, but they weren't exactly outstanding or great either. I really wouldn't pay a cent more for this so I'd say it's perfectly priced. The game is pretty fun and has a decent story, but it certainly isn't anything new. Overall I think this pack is a pretty good value considering you get all the map packs for GoW 2. Not bad, but I've seen better.
This is a great pack, but I am confused on why a lot of people are saying that Gears 1 was hard. I just don't understand, I beat it on hardcore when I was 11
awesome games and price
i got this yesterday, this is great value for this triple pack, gears of war 2 is flawless, but gears of war 1 has a few glitches and is hard without a partner
Gears 1 is taking it down
I bought this for gears of war 1 and 2 together. The second is a lot of fun and has a fun multiplayer, however the first ones campaign is fun but impossible without a friend. The AI is one of the worst ever created. They can't help you out at all, they get downed extremely easily and don't know what to do after getting downed but you still have to revive them, and if you get downed you instantly die and the AI can't revive you. The seccond one is a ton of fun though, definitely worth it.
FUN FOR ANYONE
this game is amazing i loved every minute of it rent it if your not sure but after renting it you will be sure you want overall best game ever gonna get the 3rd which looks a lot better (IF THATS POSSIBLE)
The best deal at Gamestop now
Ok, so, I picked up Gears of War 2 a few years ago and I absolutely loved it!!! Me and my cousin would spend countless hours playing the multiplayer packs and it would never get old (even just on the Day One map) However, I traded it in to get something new....but I missed it. I looked on the Gamestop website to check the price of GoW 2. BUT....I see this tri-pack with 1 and 2 and all-fronts!!!! I had to get it! So I went to the store and picked it up with my in-store credit and I got to tell you....I will never trade it in again!!!! I love it!!! I regret waiting until now to try the first game!!!! It is awesome!!! Gears of War 2 is as good as ever!!!! and the all-fronts pack is so worth the money.....it's priceless!!! This is the best thing for any GoW fan (much like myself....FANBOY) out there!!! If you don't have enough for GoW 3....either save your money or get this beast of a deal!
VERY VERY COOL AND VERY FUN GEARS OF WAR IS BESAT!
