Gears of War 3: One of the Greatest Xbox 360 games of all time! Gears of War has turned into a pretty interesting franchise over the years, and it has grown into a global phenomenon.

Hello fellow gamers! My name is ch4r1z4rd and this is my very first article on cheatsguru.com. Grand Theft Auto IV is a great game for both the diehard fans of the series, and newcomers. Rockstar did an overall amazing job with Grand Theft Auto IV. The game tells the story of Niko Bellic: A European man looking to escape his past by moving into Liberty City. Alongside his cousin, Roman, Niko gets himself into some sticky situations. If you want to know more, you'll have to play for yourself...

Well, as a fan of the first Supreme Commander game, I was most excited to hear that a sequel to it was coming out. When I bought it and actually played the game, I was very disappointed. First of all, it has been dumbed down very very much. I hate that. The combat system has been re-modified to make it much easier for a newbie to Supreme Commander to control. Ranks hardly exist anymore; I say hardly because ranks 1, 2, and 3 still do exist, but the object that is upgraded hardly changes. It mig...

As I stated in the title, this is a "surprising" addition to the Call of Duty franchise.

In this game, you play through all of Mason's memories to uncover the truth of why Ma...

Halo 3 is one of the best FPS's to date. I guess I should start with the campaign. You basically start out shooting. There isn't much of a tutorial, and after watching a cutscene you are thrown into a jungle environment where you walk for a bit then immediately start unloading on enemies. Enemies are rewarding to kill, most take 3-4 shots to kill or 1-2 shots in the head. It's not as fast-paced as some other games due to this, but it makes every kill even more fun. You have regene...
