Gears Of War Ultimate Edition Review

The Gears Of War franchise has come so far in it's milestone since November the 7th ''2006'' yes it's been that long! I'm sure we can all remember when we first fired up that lancer, & the frilling rush that awaited us on our jouney' the guy's over at Epic Games had created for us.

So where does it all begin i find you asking yourself?  well for those old & new followers to the gears franchise. it follows protagonist Marcus Fenix, on planet sera, a soldier in the Coalition of Ordered Governments tasked to lead a last-ditch effort to destroy the Locust Horde and save humanity.

With the much improved picture quality sound movement & graphics, the best game of the gears series in my opinion' has just got taken to another level of awesomeness! with this said, many of us remember the struggles we had finding them dog tags' in the campaign mode for achievements ( ggggrrrrrrhhh ). but now along with your collectible cog tags' that earn you comic pages, to be read out through the campaign to give you more insight into the story's after the ones of the Delta squad.

immerse yourself into the bonding & the very tradages that Delta squad had to over come between games within the comics.

with added detail to our courageous comrades'  back stories through the comics, while also briefly introducing us to new people. we all remember the first time we heard that blood curdling scream of the ''Bezerkers'' running up behind you' or sneaking around every corner lol. well if like me your getting on a bit in the age department, & the eye's aren't quiet what they where back in the early years, fear not because this updated  & re-mastered gears of war title has it all!  

thanks to the guys over at Epic Games we have even better! smooth running engines! a great looking multi-player that is totally out of this world! trust me on that one :). you will find yourself losing many hours & days fighting the cause lol.

With added chapters (3) to be precise you will have to go along way to find a damn good reason not to purchase this re-mastered  gears title! whether your old or new to the gears franchise you couldn't ask for a better game to get your passion for gaming up and running.

So there you have it. we haven't gone into to much detail with regards to the game it's self, as we here at Gamesbooth hate to spoil it for our fellow gamers out there. with this said you can check out the fact sheet below. for those that wish to know a wee bit more before they tackle the legends that is Gears Or War!!

Enjoy fellow comrade's!
