Pros

  • Exhilarating new multiplayer modes like Beast
  • Four-player co-op is a welcome addition
  • Imaginatively grotesque Lambent Locust creatures
  • Bolder narrative this time around

Cons

  • Campaign feels like Gears 2.5 at times
  • Rarely tosses us something we haven't seen before
  • New characters are somewhat underdeveloped
