Gears of War came out in November of 2006, receiving a 94% Metacritic score and many accolades throughout the industry for its cinematic gameplay and stunning visuals. It wasn't without its flaws, but it's still one of the best games available on Xbox 360 in my opinion. The cooperative story mode especially is excellent.
Gears of War 2 is set to release next month, and looks poised to offer more of the ultra-violent gameplay, while hopefully offering another compelling gaming experience.
Some potentially interesting interviews with Cliff Bleszinski, the lead designer for both games, have been popping up. There's a heavy-handed but still interesting New Yorker article that offers some insight into the culture at Epic games, and industry news site Gamasutra also has an interview with Mr. Bleszinski about Gears 2 and game design in general.
