This third person sci-fi shooter follows the story of Marcus, the main character, and his fight against the Locust. I typically prefer first-person shooters, but this game was fairly good and I enjoyed it despite the fact that it is third-person. This was the first Gears of War I had played, and so I was not particularly aware of what was happening in the story. The concept seems similar to Halo in that they both include some sort of alien-like creatures invading Earth and killing humans. Additionally, the game is fairly fast paced and there is a lot of gore. 3/5

As expected, Gears 3 continues the excellence of the original 2. New additions to the multi-player will keep gamers entertained. Many people (myself included) find gaps in the story. Things that are not explained very well. Some of the 'really big' things are mentioned in passing. As if they aren't really a big deal. Overall, still worth the time to play.
