This is obviously my favorite as far as the campaign. Awesome job on that! The part with Dom dying was ****, but still a pretty good story. I'm at the part where you fight Myrrah with the Hammer, I'm assuming is towards the end. Going to beat her when I get home today so, I haven't seen the end, but over all it's a great campaign.
As for the multiplayer, they will NEVER top Gears 1. That was obvious, however, this multi is LEAGUES above the Gears 2 and that laggy ***. So, over all I'm happy with that so far.
We also played 50 Horde rounds and that was cool. Played it on Gridlock and the Brumak can't even get out of spawn which makes it easier to beat the smaller bad dudes by holding down the far side hammerburst tower. I really like the barriers you can buy, I hated having the shield as the only way to block the bad dudes in Gears 2.
I do have a question. I played 4 acts on co-op with 3 of my buds. It didn't save after all of that play and I had to start where I left off has the Marcus (act 2). So, whats the point of playing on anyone elses campaign? Is their achievements for playing with the other characters?
