Gears of War 3 Guide
Unofficial Gears of War 3 Guide by CMBF for SuperCheats.com
Games like Gears of War 3 only come around every blue moon, because they must first be spawned from a highly regarded series, and even then they must receive the sort of preparation, care, and feeding that is required for a game to make it out of the average and into the special. Gears 3 has managed that with such an effortless appearing ease that it was clearly meant to be.
Being picked to write the guide for this game is one of the high-points of my year, and though I suspect that there will be other games that are at least as pleasant to play and write about in the coming months, I suspect that very few will touch me the way that this one has.
In the years of playing games from the series it is quite natural to become attached to the characters in it, and to view them as if not old friends, than at the very least, favorite people. And that is why this game was both a joy and a source of pain to play. It was executed with brilliance, it captivated and the process of suspending disbelief was near instant and gratifying, but as with real life, some things happened in the game that were not as one might have wished. So be it.
I hope that you obtain as much pleasure from the game as I did in playing it to create this guide, and on that note, that you find this guide to be of great use to you. Care has been taken to provide a very clear track to the collectable items in the game, largely because otherwise a good many hours must be spent in play to find them, and chances are even so, you would miss a few without exact directions on how to find them.
Considerably care has been taken in the writing of this to refrain from making outright spoilers so that you can use the guide along with your game play and not have to fear reading ahead too much -- but be warned, it was not possible to write this without at least SOME spoilers being included, and as that is the case, if you do not want to experience any of those, we suggest that you play through the chapter first BEFORE you read its section here, and then replay it using the guide to get what you missed.
As always, I want to thank you for reading this, for using it, and for being part of the community at SuperCheats. And I want to thank Rich for putting this game on my list.
