Nowlet me give you a simple wiki style lowdown on the game itself:
The game centers on the soldiers of Delta Squad (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Gears_of_War_characters_%26_adversaries#De lta_Squad) as they fight to save the human inhabitants of the fictional planet (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Planets_in_science_fiction) Sera from a relentless subterranean enemy known as the Locust Horde (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Gears_of_War_characters_%26_adversaries#Th e_Locust_Horde). The player assumes the role of Marcus Fenix (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marcus_Fenix), a former prisoner and war-hardened soldier. The game is based on the use of cover and strategic fire for the player to advance through the scenarios; a second player can play co-operatively through the main campaign to assist. The game also features several online game modes for up to eight players.
Gears of War has been highly successful since its release; it sold over three million copies in just ten weeks and was the fastest-selling video game of 2006,[6] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gears_of_war#_note-GearsJuggernaut) and was the second-most played game over Xbox Live during 2007 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2007_in_video_gaming)[7] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gears_of_war#_note-2) A film adaptation is currently in the works, and the game is slated to be the first of a trilogy.[8] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gears_of_war#_note-GearsTrilogy)[9] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gears_of_war#_note-3) The first sequel, Gears of War 2 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gears_of_War_2) is slated to be published in November, 2008 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2008_in_video_gaming).[10] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gears_of_war#_note-Gears_of_War_2_coming_in_November)

So, let me hear it from the community to decide wether Gears of War is till Hot or just Shot.
