I always loved the Gears of war franchise. This game brings alot to the table. It brings amazing moments and for a game that is made of testosterone, It still plays with your emotions.
The story-line is action packed and well written. Horde is back but better than ever. I have never been a fan of the competitive multi-player, It's mainly my skills suck compared to others, so if your any good at competitive then you'll love it.
- Story mixes bad-assery with a great storyline
- Horde is simply amazing, You get to fight bosses with each one that requires a certain tactic. Your able to build fortifications and turrets and able to build a Silver-back ( A 7 foot tall mini-mech warrior of doom.
- The graphics are great
- The games controls have a certain fluidity to them
- The co-op is back and fun to play with 3 friends
- The competitive multiplayer isn't for everyone, If you go into it blind, chances are you may squeeze off a few kills but the Gears veterans will tear you apart.... Literally
- The controls like I said are fluid but can be clunky at times that really isn't the best time to be clunky
- The DLC is so over-priced
- The ranking system is a grind for players that are casual
I want to close this off and state that Gears of war 3 is an amazing game. If you haven't got it yet, it's worth at least a rent for the co-op and horde
Good work on the graphics, clean UI experience. Fair amount of unwarranted language. Some gore, but nothing that exceeds the previous game. 1st person shooter best of the year? No it isn't , but worthy of the game library.
Good game, new modes, and improved horde mode, great online, and good story mode, the only thing i did not like about it was the aiming, i have never liked it since gears one, i play alot of shooter games, and usally they all aim the same, or have the same outlook, not gears, but if your really good at it, this game is for you, and with battlefield and mw3 coming out, this one might collect dust sooner than you think, overall 4 out of 5
I bought this game because I am a huge fan of the previous installments in the series and I loved playing the second Gears of War of online. The game immediately exceeded my expectiations when I played my first online match. I love how fast and smooth it is. The cover system is just as great as it was in GoW2 and it feels more integrated. My favorite parts are the new weapons, particularly the new starting weapons, the retro lancer and the sawed-off shotgun. They add a lot of new play-styles, as does the Digger, a new power weapon that burrows underground to bypass cover and forces enemies to leave their entrenched spot or accept defeat. The only reason I give it a 4 instead of 5 is that the campaign is not on the same level that the last two were on. The first and second GoW constantly forced you to think and fight creatively, and presented many unique situations that the player had to fight their way out of. This campaign is not as well thought-out and is mostly a string of monotonous fire fights until the last two chapters. The story is also much less emotional than the second game. They didn't characterize very well and the new characters often felt pointless and stale. I still have no understanding of who Jace or Sam really are, and Dom's character does not act like her experienced the horrors that he did in the second game.
With the additional of Horde mode, etc., this is a pretty cool game! The story line is a bit cheezy, but great graphics and fun gameplay make up for it.
good follow up to the previous game. Great single shooter game with online capabilities. Has cooperative so you can play with a friend nest to you at homwe which some games are pulling away from.
I like how the game looks and feels. It's not as good as gears 2 but it's still pretty good. Online multiplayer is realy good.
Gears of War III is an intense action packed video game that will keep you on the edge! With so much action and alien gore, how could you not have fun! I love the improve of the graphics system! Much detail more if you compare it to the first. I give it 4 stars only because there are some annoying parts in the game, but you can overcome it with a little time.
Great graphics but a little on the easy side for me, better online game play. Could absolutely loose track of time when playing, sweet.
great game,AWESOME GRAPHICS....pretty cool gameplay..
only just started playing it...just wish you could run faster,and jump better good other than that.
