Gears of War 3 is the kind of game that just makes you wanna play uncontrollablly and never get bored of it. In the game I found out that every Gamer Profile has a War Journal aka Your Stats. In there, you can check your records and what you have unlocked. Each profile has a level in experience by the points you earn. Some of the things you can unlock are characters,badges you can apply on your username, achievements, ribbons, executions, and so much more! I just wanted to play until I unlocked them all. The level experience helps you unlock characters and also by doing other things.
In campaign, I found the levels to not get harder as I moved on which was kinda disappointing, but that's just my opinion. As you move on in campaign you are to find collectibles. Each level has a certain amount of collectibles which you can figure out by going onto your War Journal. Each collectible has a little passage for you to read for you to know why it's so important. Also you can find many weapons throughout the level,but you are to start off with default weapons. Many of the weapons have their own execution, just like every characters on ssbb has a final smash. They could only be used in Campaign,Horde, and Beast. In Versus and Arcade, you must unlock them by getting a certain amount of kills with that weapon.
In Horde and Beast, it's basically the same except you use Locust in Beast and COG in Horde.
In Beast you can buy only buy Locust that have unlimited ammo and their life cannot regenerate like the COG in Horde. In each row of locust you are given a stronger locust. That's why you must unlock them by how much kills you get. The more kills, the closer you get at getting a stronger locust.
In Horde, you can get any kind of protection you can afford. You can get stronger items you must buy that certain item multiple times until a upgrade is available.
In versus, Every mode has their own objective so their isn't much to say on this except I recommend this f you like competition.Well, this is yet another review by Dionysus. See you next time:p
The game was very addicting and I had a good time playing on it.
