For those not familiar with the Gears of War series, it is a third-person shooter set in a bleak future where the Coalition of Ordered Governments is trying to save humanity from the Locus Horde, a race of subterranean reptilian hominids. The player fights the Locus Horde as Marcus Fenix and relies on a number of weapons including grenade launchers, sniper rifles, and the signature Lancer, an assault rifle mounted with a chainsaw bayonet. The gameplay depends on the use of cover and tactically choosing how to engage the enemy.
