Gears of War 3 (Xbox 360)

 

Emergence Day comes early.

So Gears of War 3 barely makes any mistakes. Obviously if the idea of running forward shooting things sounds awful to you then you may not like it but for everyone else this is an incredibly polished experience which improves on every aspect of the...

Gears Of War 3

 

A fitting end for one of Xbox 360's greatest franchises.

There are plenty of videos on YouTube showing off the vault in action. It looks a lot better in real life and when playing in the dark, the infected omen really does shine like a lighthouse!

Gears Of War 3 (2011)

 

After a teary six-month delay and plenty of reassurances from the mighty Cliff Bleszinkski on the Jimmy Fallon show, Gears of War 3 has finally found its way onto our Xbox 360 – and the end result is a bombastic finale for what is arguably the...

Gears of War 3 – Review

 

The final part of Marcus's saga is now upon us with Gears of War 3.  Humanity is desperate and has one final shot to try and rid themselves of the Locust and the Lambent.  Jacinto, the last human city, has been sunk and now the COGs are stranded.  Not...

Gears of War 3: Multiplayer Beta

 

Meaty. That's always been the best word to describe Gears of War. From the tree trunk-necked protagonists, with their hefty physicality, to the slabs of flesh that flop to the floor after encountering the wrong end of a Lancer, the series has always...

Perhaps the most enticing reward, however, is Thrashball Cole. A new character skin that sees cult-favourite shouty-man Cole decked out in his American football-esque Thrashball outfit, you can unlock this particular bauble by completing 50 beta...

Order of War

 

Consider Japanese publishing powerhouse Square Enix and you're most likely find yourself thinking about hardcore Japanese RPGs such as Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest. However, with 'serious' Japanese gaming fading in the face of social and casual...

Accessibility is the key, and in 'easy' mode it will be impossible to lose we're told, while 'hard' will require players to try really quite hard in order to overcome the title's AI. As part of the cinematic theme you'll also be able to turn the...

Gears of War

 

As winter blockbusters go, Gears Of War always seemed something slightly awkwardly placed to me. In the build up to the game being released over the pond numerous attempts by myself were made to finally crack into what all the excitement was about, yet...

Gears of War

 

How short is too short? A question that has plagued an insecure mankind throughout our conscious history if ever there was one. It's is also a poser that has recently worked its way into discussions about games. Modern titles are often stuffed full of...

Saying all of this there's something about Gears which left me feeling a touch underwhelmed. I think the most likely culprit for this is the hype machine. While Gears is undoubtedly a triumphant technical showpiece and a fantastically entertaining...

Gears of War (Xbox 360) review

 

Hype is a terrible, terrible thing… every year without fail there is always at least one game that publishers decide needs the hard-sell and as a result gets carefully marketed by those PR guys and gals with clever ideas to build the hype to an...
