Xbox360,$20 ★★★ This prequel to Gears of War 3 is set just after Emergence Day, when the Locust rose up to destroy humanity. RAAM’S Shadow is a return to old-school Gears gameplay with a new cast of heroes. Dilapidated bank vaults and abandoned schools play host to firefights. Players also get to play as the Locust big-bad RAAM. Out now.
