Gears of War Original Soundtrack OST
Platforms: X-Box 360
Gears of War takes place on the planet Sera. A radioactive liquid called Imulsion became a highly valued power source after a scientist discovered how to use it, and the economic shockwave led to several wars between nations. The Coalition of Ordered Governments (COG) originally existed only as an obscure world-government philosophy, but it evolved into a legitimate, though minor, political party during the 79-year long Pendulum Wars. After "Emergence Day," when the Locust began their attack on humanity, the COG were the ones who took the necessary steps to ensure the survival of human civilization, instituting martial law and taking charge of the effort against the Locust. Fourteen years later, the COG is the only human government left on Ser Players take control of a group of COG marines as they fight off the Locust swarm. The game is wonderful both graphically and musically, and has a lot of replay value. It has done exceptionally well, scoring between 85-95% on most video game ranking websites.
