The end of an epic trilogy on Xbox 360.
armament of war is a hugely popular franchise with fans thanks to a fantasy trilogy in Xbox 360 which led to it becoming a console flagship, similar to what Halo did on the original Xbox. Originally, it was planned as a trilogy (again, like Halo) and told the epic story of Marcus Fenix and his team in an endless battle against the horde of locusts. As we know, another trilogy was greenlit after developers The Coalition took over from Epic Games.
Gears of War 3 marked the return of the series with force. It is set 18 months later of the second game, which saw the fall of Jacinto, the last human city. Unfortunately, the locust survived and the war continued. Also, to make matters worse, the Lambents showed up to cause more trouble for Marcus and his friends. These new enemies were mutants infected with the emulsion
The character roster was very strong in Gears of War 3, with favorites like Adam Fenix (Marcus’ father) and the Queen Myrrah, who return for the final installment of the trilogy. Character development is something the franchise has always done well. The game detailed an exciting race against time stop the Lambent and Locust once and for all by perfecting a weapon that would erase them from Sera’s face forever, while revealed more of the history and lore of the Gears universe than ever before.
Gears of War has always stood out from other shooters in the genre for its roof system and for him slower and heavier movement of the character, which changes the typical shooter gameplay and makes the gameplay a bit more tactical. You could carry four weapons, including two primary (shotguns and machine guns, etc.), one secondary (pistols), and grenades. As you took damage, the screen slowly turned red and you got closer to death, or at least you were downed and needed a teammate to revive you.
These were the characteristics of the series, who reappeared in Gears of War 3. Unlike other franchises the gameplay here remained very similar to the first game, with very few changes. While that’s kind of odd, it’s more of a testament to the quality and quality of the Gears experience from day one.
Of course, Gears of War is all about battling with your fellow COGs and working as a unit. For the first time in this episode
The multiplayer mode has also been improved, with a four-player online cooperative story available for the first time alongside the return of Horde mode. Another interesting addition was the beast modewhich changed things up and let you play as the Locust and fight against the COG.
Gears of War 3 was an epic conclusion to a much-loved franchise, who went to great lengths to avoid an anticlimax, which is an easy trap to fall into for a trilogy finale. To do it justice, you have to start at the beginning of the journey, but you can be sure that some of the series’ best moments are saved for the final act.
