First review I made
We (or some of us) have been waiting nearly a year for this anticipated sequel. But the real question is: Did it reach everyones expectations? Well, lets dive in
Campaign: The campaign took place 2 years after the fall of Jacinto (Gears of War 2) and sets place on a ship called Sovereign. Marcus Fenix was having a dream about his father's 'death' and was awoken by a loud speaker telling him and his team to meet Anya. You get to see some familiar faces such as Dom Santiago- but with a beard- Jace, a rookie for the COG and Anya Stroud in her Gear. Later on, the ship gets attacked by Imulsion infected creatures known as 'Lambent' and there are different types of infected: Former (Human) Drone (Locust) Polyps (spider crab things) Drudges (larger infected) Gunker (Holy shit scary) and Lambent Zeker (HOLY JEEZUSIUHJGHBUKJGVBUKJG scary). The design of the infected was well designed. But they explode when you kill them so keep your distance. The Locust make one big return as well as Queen Myrrah, the leader of the Locust. What was surprising in the campaign is that Clayton Carmine lasted longer than his 2 brothers Anthony (Gears of War) and Benjamin (Gears of War 2) but I won't spoil the game for you
Multiplayer: Since Epic games decided to add more weapons, it just got easier and more fun. The weapons you'll be able to use in certain modes are the Retro lancer- An assault rifle with a dagger bayonet and powerful recoil which hinders long range shots- and the Sawed off Shotgun-A very powerful shotgun which can kill you in one hit but you need to be in close range for its effectiveness. Horde mode is in it but even better cause you can make a base, build turrets, decoys, spikes on the ground as well as getting the Silverback- a heavy mech that can be ridden by one soldier and the feet can be used as cover as long as the mech stands still. A new mode was added to the game, it is known as Beast mode. Its like Horde mode but you get to play as Locust minions like from Tickers to Corpsers to Beserkers.
Campaign: 5/5 - Very strong and emotional
Multiplayer: 4/5 - More enjoyable
Horde 2.0 mode: 5/5 - Fun with friends
Beast mode: 3/5 - Its just Horde mode, only reversed
