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.
