Gears of War games always boast of a brilliant single player campaign and, if not completely balanced, a very enjoyable multiplayer experience. Game modes have always been a strength in Gears games, and they’re not there just for the heck of it either. Beast and Horde mode have to be the two best, most engaging modes I’ve played in a long time, and I want Epic to keep delivering similar content in future Gears game, especially Gears 4. We want to see more Horde, more Beast, and more such modes that are not only a hell lot of fun, but unlike anything we’ve ever seen before them.
Boss fights in Gears of War games are always pretty epic, but by the time I got to Gears of War 3, I felt like I was doing the same thing over and over, fighting the same kind of battles that I had in Gears of War 1 and 2. I’d love to see Gears of War 4 try something different, gameplay-wise and scope-wise, while not changing things a lot.
At its time, Gears of War was console graphics king, and there are several people who’d call Gears of War 3 the same right now. And while Gears 2 doesn’t have that high a distinction, everyone knows it to be a very good looking game. My point is, Gears of War games have always looked awesome, with some great artistic style and technical aspects that can blow most of the competition out of the water. I expect Gears of War 4 to be nothing less in this respect. I’m not asking for the game to be the next Crysis or something. I just want it to have more of the same technical and artistic prowess that Gears games have always had.
