Accommodating Player Styles

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -All the Gears of War games appeal to a certain play style, people who like 3rd person cover fire games where you get to stomp around destroyed worlds and show ugly monsters the business end of your chainsaw bayonet. If this is not you, play another game!
