Gears of War sets a high bar for military sci-fi, combining solid gameplay mechanics with a developed and complex story and a memorable cast of characters. The Gears of War series has been among the most popular and most played on Xbox Live since its creation, thanks to its cover-based shooting and variety of multiplayer modes, including both co-op and versus modes.
