    The third installment in Epic's cover-based combat series brings Marcus Fenix's Locust-lynching saga to a satisfying conclusion.

    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
