Good game that does'nt disappoint.

I'm a big fan of the series,so I'll do my best to provide an unbiased review.The plot was good ,but I felt that there was a little bit of disconnect with the plot during gameplay. It was easy to forget what your objective would accomplish. I like the gameplay more so I wasn't to bothered by this. I like that they brought back some of the weapons from previous titles. I mostly stick with the rifle attached with a chainsaw. It's much more fun using a chainsaw over a gun. They also did a good job of mixing in some new weapons with a good amount of variety. That have also incorporated a command system for NPCs,but I just stuck to letting them do their thing. You'll really enjoy this game if you are a fan of the series.Read full review...

I wish I would have saved the Three dollars .

Not the game I expected really kind of a disappointment . I played the first Gears Of War and really enjoyed it but this one not so much . I wondered to myself why I could get this game at such a low price and should have known. I would recommend saving your money and investing in Skyrim our Call Of Duty titles. And if you are interested in trying this title out anyway I would part with my copy it's barely used. Lol !Read full review...


So the cops knew internal affairs was setting them up the whole time.

If I could write a few words here; then I'd be a better writer. Zing.
Great game I hated the fact I had to play as a man, who is voiced by Futurama's Bender. More like Boner, from that one show. There are women in this game who fight along side you, or should I say you fight along side with. And through the entire time their tops remain to stay on, very disappointing.
One is Australian which is odd, not that she has an accent,(that's just funny) but I was led to believe(by the game) that is a different world, a world called Sera. So how is there a continent/part of the world where Australians live? And the chainsaw gun is impractical, the guts you rip through would clog it up. And I was absolutely(SPOILER): expecting Marcus to be bald a la Brett Michaels and/or Hulk Hogan when he took off that bandana. Beside these gentlemen who the hell wears a bandana? Bandana is banana with a D.
If I could play this game I would, because I own it, so it's very easy for me. If it's hard for you then maybe you're a dry jacker, like me. Dryjacker4life.

VERDICT: Modern Warfare 3 Battlefield 3 Gears of War 3. Sorry PS3 Fans.

Being the biggest fan of this franchise since buying the limited edition of Gears of War 1 and enjoying every bit of that game, Gears of War 2 had been my biggest disappointment. Therefore, it had been very hard for me to be tempted enough to get this game.

I don't know what had driven me to do this, maybe it had been all the flashbacks and memories of Gears of War 1 and the tidbits of great moments in Gears of War 1 fantastic multiplayer. Maybe it had been the boredom I got from all the cod shooter games I've been playing, and, dare I say it, from battlefield games also.

Whatever it was, I'm glad today that I had done what I done and have not regretted a bit since. It is unexplainable how thrilling every piece of this game is. It is has been so well designed that it should have been $120 game, $60 for its campaign and the cooperative and $60 for its multiplayer and horde. No cod game has ever had a good campaign mode, even cod fans admit that, but no fan will ever admit that the multiplayer has also remained unchanged since call of duty 4.

Some of my friends say that this is call of duty with a MUCH better campaign mode. I say that this is call of duty with a MUCH better campaign mode, an INFINITELY times better multiplayer, and a much better coop. So what I'm pretty much saying is that this isn't call of duty at all, it's Gears of War. Buy it.

Counter-arguments to my review: This is a love or hate game. I'm a huge fan but not a hardcore one. The most hardcore fans who loved everything about Gears of War 1, will hate the dramatic changes in the machine guns. Sawed-Off shotgun is now overpowered, lancer is now so strong that it can be used the entire game without any shotgun, and the gun that every gears loved and used, the gnasher shotgun, is no longer as useful as it used to be. Sadly I admit, gears of war 3 has tried to make this game appeal to the noob fanbase and now kills take a lot less skill to achieve. I still love it anyway.

Blood,Guts,Women And Chainsaws.

Having been a Gear head since the release of Gears Of War in 2006 and following Marcus and Doms story it was only right that after owning one and two, I moved on to complete the story. The Story Mode its self was all around what to be expected of the series, A lot of locust and a lot of blood. I will say the major disapointment was in the online play. Unlike prior gears of wars, in horde you are given the option to earn money with every kill and build fortifications to better your chances. The down side to this- every ten wasy is a "boss" wave- depending on the boss ie: a beserker who destroys EVERYTHING (You usually fight two or three of them in this particular boss wave) you are left to rebuild. This can be discouraging and sadly so many people leave the wave once this happens. One thing I will recomend if you have the time, check out all the hidden easter eggs in the game, as all GOW series there amazing. The Golden Chicken is By far the funniest.From The sly comments the characters make through out the game to the amazing detail through out the game, This did not disapoint! Im just very sad to see it end. I vote for a Fourth!Read full review...


Gears of War III is BEAST!!!

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.Read full review...


best gears of war yet

At the former, Gears 3 ultimately succeeds, especially in its rich suite of multiplayer content. Even the singleplayer campaign somehow manages to feel fresh despite rather conservative changes and a palpable sense of deja-vu coloring the majority of the campaign. As for the latter? Shakespeare this ain't, and Gears 3 struggles at times with its forced attempts at heart-string pluckery, but I can forgive it as much; gore-starved guns adorned with toothy chainsaws easily atone for any cheesiness suffered along the way.

Destroyed beauty, hope runs deep, brothers; to the end. Part poetry, mostly marketing slang, the Gears 3 story continues with what amounts to a blood-drenched tale of woe, suffering, loss and absolution, cathartica that stands out in harsh relief when framed by the '80s era Schwarzenegger-ness of most of the dialogue. Cue the attendant grimaces, bro-vado and non-stop X-TREME one-liners. Translation: Gears 3 delivers exactly what you'd expect on the story side, ironically good news for longtime fans. For the rest of you, roll your eyes, chuckle and carry on. It's not Gears of War and Peace, people!

Things on Sera have gone from really sucky to really-really-sucky in Gears 3. The Coalition of Ordered Government, aka COG, has all but disbanded and fallen even farther out of favor with Stranded and survivors alike, if that were even possible. The action follows Marcus Fenix and Delta Squad's last stand against the Locust and every garden variety of Lambent, creatures that have become infected by Sera's yellow glowing Imulsion fuel.

Drama aplenty ensues, along with lots of surprises for all your favorite giant macho dudes. Dom sports a scruffy playoff beard and overalls, Cole faces a serious mid-life crisis, bad guys spurt out from the ground like Locust geysers (gone are the Emergence Holes, replaced by the aforementioned geyser action and troop-spewing stalks), there are more Carmines and wouldn't you know it, Marcus' dad is alive. WTF, Epic?

Everything about Gears 3 exudes polish. On the surface, it easily outperforms its two predecessors. Crisp visuals, fractured lighting and billowy smoke effects bring the world to life, giving this final and ever-decaying vision of Sera a tangible sense of place. The sound design creates one of the more cohesive combinations of music and sound effects in any game, fashioning an immediately recognizable experience.

At its heart, Gears tells a story of survival. Everything you do over the course of the five-act story revolves around endurance. You'll go from escaping ambushes to scrounging for supplies to scavenging fuel to using ammo-less Retro Lancers in nasty-ass bayonet fights. Everything feels solemnly desperate and dire, a motif the designers use to great effect throughout the campaign.

Delta Squad has grown and changed, bringing the total number of playable characters to eight, adding the now-armored Anya Stroud, Samantha "Sam" Byrne and Jayson "Jace" Strattonplus to the ranks alongside Marcus, Dom, Cole, Baird and, of course, Carmine.

Gears 3 feels exactly the way you'd expect it to feel, but better, as everything's been overhauled and fine-tuned. The roadie run feels faster, snapping into cover works better and combat has been tightened-up. Plus you can kick fools while you vault over cover, which seriously rules. There's a ton of new implements of doom with which to shoot, impale, gouge and chew up your enemies with, including weapons like the

Best of 2011! Among best ever!

One of the greatest titles on Xbox 360. A great conclusion to the Gears of War trilogy. A fair match to games like Halo and Call Of Duty. I've been purchasing Xbox games since 2007, and Gears of War is one of the titles that always succeeds in pleasing me. I have absolutely no complaints about the game, whatsoever. If you own an Xbox 360, the Gears games are must-haves for your collection.Read full review...
