Best Overall Shooter of 2011
2011 may go down as one of the best years of top notch shooters.
We had the epic showdown between powerhouse franchises Call of Duty and Battlefield, the quality Resistance 3 and military shooter SOCOM 4, but one shooter stood above the rest:
Gears of War 3.
The game seriously had it all. A lengthy campaign, a fantastic storyline, speaker-busting audio, grade-A graphics and excellent controls.
Who can forget the gut-wrenching twist the story took midway through? And while COD and BF3 have outstanding multiplayer modes in their own right, Gears of War 3 included plenty of variety and the return of the popular Horde Mode.
While hardcore gamers may find themselves playing the aforementioned military shooters for a longer period of time, Gears 3 had the best overall package.
In a word, it was “Epic” (pun intended).
