Gears Of War 3

Gears Of War 3 is a third-person action shooter, released exclusicely on Xbox 360. Developed by Epic Games, Gear Of War 3 was originally set to be released April of 2011. After a five month delay, Gears Of War 3 was release on September 20. Gears 3 takes place two years after Gears 2, so it is not a direct sequel . This is good for people who have yet to play Gears 2. Gears Of War 3 is the third installment of the series, and will be the final game using the current storyline.

The gameplay in Gears Of War 3 is what you would expect in a Gears game. It revolves around taking cover, and blasting your enemy before they do the same to you. You annialate your enemy, with weapons such as the sawed-off shotgun, the retro lancer, and the vulcan cannon. Not much more can be said about the gameplay. Expect a fast paced style game, with lots of action. Team work and strategy also plays a big role. It makes it easier to maneuver through the game.

The story of Gears Of War 3 takes place on a fictional planet, known as Sera. The war takes place between the humans, and ugly creatures called Locust. The human race is on the verge of being wiped out. Soldiers or "Gears" as they are called in this game, look to prevent the extinction of the human race. The main character, Marcus Fenix, leads his squad on a mission to set the Lightmass bomb in position. This is done to kill off the enemy, and end the war. As you move through the game, you learn more about Marcus Fenix past, and the men who have fought beside him.

Multiplayer is the reason many people continue to play the Gears Of War series. Multiplayer is back, and is better than ever. Lag issues, found in previous Gears games ruined the flow and enjoyment of the game. So far it seems the lag issues have been fixed. Many of the modes players loved in Gears 1 and 2, are back. A new mode, Team Deathmatch has also made its way into the series. In total, there are six multiplayer game modes, which include: Warzone, King of the hill, Execution, Wingman, Capture the leader, and Team Deathmatch.

Warzone: In this mode each player has only one life, and no respawns. The goal of this mode is to kill the enemy team, before they kill your team. The first team to succesfully win 3 rounds, wins.

King Of The Kill: This mode is just an upgraded version of Annex, from previous Gears Of War games. The object of this mode is to defend a certain area on the chosen map. The team who does, wins a point. Once that round is over, another objective will spawn.

Execution: This mode is almost identical to Warzone. The goal of this mode is to kill the opposing team before time runs out. The only difference in this mode is, when a player is downed, they will revive at the end of the bleed out time.
Wingman: In this mode, players receive points two ways. Points are awarded to teams who kill their opponents. Points are also awarded for surviving a round. Four teams of two team up with each other, as the same character. The first team to reach 15 points wins.

Capture The Leader: The concept of the mode is the same as capture the flag. Your objective is to capture the opposing teams leader, instead of a flag. You do this while defending your own leader. The first team to hold the opposing teams leader hostage for 30 seconds, wins the round.

Team Deathmatch: This mode is new to Gears Of War 3. This mode is similar to Warzone, except you get 20 respawns. The team who destroys the other team, and kills the remaining players, wins.
