Gears of War 3 Multiplayer Beta Review


The Gameplay in the Gears of War 3 Multiplayer Beta is very similar to any other Gears of War game. It is also very smooth compared to other Third Person Shooters. The camera allows you to have a good view of the character you are playing as, while you can still see what is going on around you.

The graphics are good, but there is little to no improvement from any other Gears of War game.  However Gears of War 3 is still in its Beta Stage.

The sound was solid. I could easily tell when an enemy was coming straight for me or a teammate was coming to back me up.

AI shows up in multiplayer when slots aren’t filled, but compared to other gamers the AI sucks. Which is fairly typical of enemy AI compared to real gamers.

This was a very fun experience and I would gladly wake up early to play a few rounds. The intensity of the battles was just about too much to handle for one player. Whether I was dodging some sort of mole explosive or trying to win a chainsaw battle, I was having a great time. I’m sure the full game will be even more fun.

Like I said earlier, I would gladly devote extra time to play some rounds of Team Deathmatch with one of my buddies early in the AM. There are even un-lockable items that keep things fresh.

Ohh, and if you own a copy of Bulletstorm (and have a valid Xbox LIVE account) for Xbox 360, you can download and play this today.

The Sawed-Off shotgun needs major improvement if not removed in general don't let one gun stop gears of war 3 from being one of the best games of the decade...

Yea, from what I've seen it looks like this installment will be a bit more "colorful" than its predecessors.

I have always found the Gears of War games somewhat depressing (still fun though).

One thing you should know about the graphics is that its multiplayer. Most games look better in the single player mode and not as awesome in the multiplayer mode. I expect Gears 3 will look much better in the single player.

It's not as much of the graphics as it is the detail. There's more detail in singleplayer.
