Today, I’m trying a slightly different approach. Instead of doing a blow-by-blow nitpicking of Chapters 1 through 3 of the third Act, I’ll just discuss things rather generally. It’s still roughly chronological, but this new approach should be easier to read.
This week, we’re looking at, and criticising, Act 2 from Epic Games’ Gears of War 3. We covered Act 1 last week here. When we last left off, Marcus and friends jumped off of an exploding ship in an improbable manner, while Cole and friends failed to drop a box of Tickers onto the fish eating the ship. Today, we’re covering Chapters 1-3 of Act 2.
Yesterday, Marcus lead Delta squad the defense of the CNC Sovereign. Today, Cole leads a squad into Hanover to look for supplies. Let’s start things off on the right foot, shall we?
Yesterday, we looked at the introductory cinematic for Gears of War 3. Today, we’re looking into the actual game. We’ll cover Act 1, Chapters 0-2. Let’s get started with Act 1: Prologue.
