"The Gears of War franchise has been a massive success from the beginning. The first game was the killer app for Xbox 360. The game perfected cover-based shooting, had a fantastic co-op mode, and featured huge action set pieces; however, was held back by a broken multiplayer mode. The second game improved on the first with bigger set piece moments, a better told story, and finally what has become a staple in the shooter genre, Horde Mode; a survival mode where you keep going through endlessly improving waves of enemies. Later on, bugs were found and once again a lack of dedicated servers stopped it from competing with Call of Duty or Halo for the most-played game on Xbox Live. Now the third game is here promising to fix the issues of the past and more, does it deliver?"
