Win! Gears of War and 360 faceplate

Monday 13 November 2006
The utterly unmissable Xbox 360 shoot-'em-up Gears of War gets its UK release this Friday. And to celebrate we've teamed up with Microsoft and Epic Games to offer five lucky winners a copy of the special edition version of the game and a limited edition Gears of War faceplate for your 360. Can't say fairer than that.

The game scored 10/10 in our review and we can honestly say it's brain-meltingly, face-chainsawingly good. But this special edition makes a brilliant game even better by including an embossed metal case, Destroyed Beauty hardbound art book and a bonus DVD featuring, among other things, a 'making of' documentary.

So, what do you have to do to be in with a chance of winning? It's dead easy - just email us the answer to the following question and the first five names out of the hat will grab the gear. Here goes:
