I tell you what Spook there are only a handful of games that i spend many hours playing online and Cod MW are usually the only thing that have me addicted.
Never really played online in Gears even though the second game had the Horde mode but it passed me by for some reason or another.
Now then this gears 3 Horde mode is in terms of fun factor when you get a good crew of guys playing has some of the best online experiences in a game mode i have had in years.
Played it last night for a few hours but this is a team game and what i don't understand is why are the majority of people that play this type of game and co/op in general not using the microphone that is provided for essential good communication and game play.
Not only are so many not using microphones but they don't even play the basic rules like reviving you when you are down and need help,that part last night was totally frustrating but the game in general is a awesome experience.
Tonight i thought lets give Horde mode a hour or two.........5 hours later i have just come of and this game has me so hooked its hard to turn the 360 of ,played tonight with what i can only describe as some really impressive team and Horde players and we actually all got to level 35 which took about 90 minutes at least.
When you were down these players were there to revive you and its one of the best experiences online with a game mode i have had in years.
Gears 3 is my game of the year so far by a wide margin and i have not even scratched the surface of what the multiplayer has to offer,i even hammered the single player game and finished it today after about 8 hours i guess and it was a Epic ride and thrilling experience.
Kind of wished i had taken more interest in the previous gears 2 and the fun i might have had online with Horde mode then.
This game mode has everything,great graphics,thrilling game play and the best mode that every Gears fan loves Horde Mode even better than the previous games.
Totally addicted to this and it would be nice if some of the others on here could team up and have a right riot with this brilliant game.
I can not heap any more praise on this game and even though i am repeating myself regarding this game ,horde mode is worth the price of the game alone and its completely stopped me from playing Dead Island which i love but this is my type of game.
