Gears of War has a massive fan following, and had even dethroned the cult classic ‘Halo’. Here are some cheats and tips for the Xbox 360 version of the game.
Gears of War is an over-the-shoulder shooter game. It was released in the United States on November 12, 2006. The game offers single as well as multiplayer modes for the Xbox.
The game is set in the fictional planet of Sera, which has seen two great wars, with the last Pendulum War fought for cheap energy. These wars ended with the Emergence Day, which brought upon the inhabitants of Sera, the most dangerous and relentless enemies they ever faced – The Locust Horde. These enemies killed about one third of the entire population of the planet Sera.
All the inhabitants of the Planet Sera are taken to a safe haven from the Locust Horde to the Jacinto Plateau. However, attacks from the Locust Horde are inevitable. It is then that the acting government body, the Coalition of Ordered Governments (COG) turns to a different type of people for their armies – the condemned.
The main protagonist in the game is Marcus Fenix, a soldier who was imprisoned because he believed in the importance of family before duty. Now, along with a rag-tag team and his friend, Dominic Santiago, they have to fight for what is left of civilization.
