Gears of War 3 features a story that definitely sets it apart from its predecessors. Read about one particular moment that left Bitmob Intern Ryan Perez very, very impressed.
Cole has always been one of my favorite Gears characters. I'm glad were getting to know him a little better.
I thought the story in Gears2 was better than the first, still its no Bioshock or ME, but really I play Gears for the mayhem and online its a very distinct change of pace from other multiplayer shooters.
Character development in Gears of War? Say it isn't so.
Still gotta finish the main campaign of Gears 1!
I guess I'm a little surprised...story was never this series' strong suit.
never played a gears game for the story, I don't really see that changing now either.
as long as by development they mean actual development and not being dragged around for 3/4 of the game for no reason what so ever then im good
Who plays Gears for the story?
For some gamers, a great story attached to a good mechanical 3rd person shooter can provide added depth. Uncharted does story pretty well, and I have no doubt is a part of its success. Gears can offer the same thing without taxing the already great gameplay it has to offer. A win-win for gamers IMO. But I must admit, I will play Gears even if the story was about mud.
I had an absolute blast with the beta, so it's great to hear the that single player is just as good. I can't wait to get my hands on it!
