Gears of War 3 is the final instalment in the extremely popular shooter trilogy exclusive for the console of Microsoft. It ends the story of the great war between the human race with Locusts. Yet again, we play as the famous Marcus Fenix, trying to bring the conflict to a fortunate end. It still is Cliff Bleszinski with his Epic Games studio who are responsible for this bestseller. With many new enemies to fight, the COG coalition is still trying to hold, outnumbered by the enormous enemy divisions. After the city of Jacinto is sunk and destroyed, Marcus Fenix and his best friend Dominic Santiago set out on a journey to fight Marcus’ father. Not only is he dear to Marcus: he might also hold the answer to the question on what the human race should do to defeat the Locust once and for all.
The single player campaign can actually be beaten with friends in a cooperation mode available for up to four people. It’s a big improvement in comparison to the previous parts, where you could only play solo or in a duo. Overall, the campaign offers thirty one missions with fifty seven secret objects to look for. One of the most important aspects of the game has always been multiplayer. It is so now, too. The most popular game mode, Horde, is replaced by Beast Mode, which is pretty much Horde all over again, but with the players playing as Locusts against the human soldiers.
There are also many new maps and locations to play on like Trenches where you can barely see anything due to a horrible sandstorm. One of the most recognizable traits of the Gears of War series is Lancer, a characteristic weapon that includes a chainsaw. In Gear of War 3, we also get its classic version, Retro Lancer, and many different weapons like One Shot, a heavy sniper rifle, and Incendiary Grenades. Every weapon requires playing differently and has its specific kill animations.
