Don't listen to any negativity. Posted by: from: Las Vegas, NV on I understand How GOW 1 players felt about GOW 2 when it first came out, BUT THIS GAME IS NOTHING LIKE GOW 1 or GOW 2. They pretty much completely eliminated Lag with dedicated servers. And when the servers were temporarily down which was for about 5 hours, the put on host migration so the game cannot end when host rage quits. GOW 1 has ENORMOUS shotgun lag, and GOW 2 pretty much fixed that in their latest update, but it still however has its own enormous lag to fix. I Play both GOW 1 and GOW 2 enough to know what I a talking about, I'm a lvl 100 on GOW 2. But GOW 3 has stolen my heart and I CANNOT wait for it to come out, and best, but also worst part about it is that the game is noob friendly, Good for the new gear gamers, bad for the veterans such as myself, the newbies will learn to only use the SAWED OFF and thats not good. the gnasher takes the most skill and SAWED OFF in my opinion should only be used when enraged lol. However, If you wanna rock this game real hard, i would recommend Playing and getting good or atleast fairly good at GOW 2. My skills in GOW 2 make me rock GOW 3 because in my opinion, since there is little to none lag in GOW 3, it is EASIER. and actually more fair.

So far looking to be a great game. Posted by: from: South Carolina on Now if you have played the previous gears of war titles you should know this game is bloody. There is tons of gore and fast paced action. gears of war 3 is a 3rd person cover-based shooter and is obviously by the number on the title the 3rd and supposed final installment in the series. Gears of war 3 is make some big promises over its predecessors, including dedicated online servers for online multiplayer, a revamped a smoother control experience, and new gameplay modes. Now in gears of war 3 the core mechanics are pretty much remaining the same however most are getting lots of polish. If your not a big online player gears may not be for you due to previous installments having relatively short campaigns clocking in at around 6-7 hours on normal difficulty. Gears 3 may be different though since its been delayed till september 2011 this allows lots of changes to occur. I'm looking forward to it im a big gears fan and hope to fully enjoy this final entry in the trilogy. also with a good HD tv this game is one of the most visually stunning on the xbox 360, heck even with a bad tv its pretty darn gorgeous.

This is not a zombie game Posted by: from: bronx on A reviewer gave this game a one star rating and no wonder he is a halo fanboy and scared of the comp. the story of the game is fantastic and all the characters have depth and self worth. They have all been developed right in front of our eyes as we play gow and you get a chance to hear and see their stories like dom trying to find his wife. This is a great game with a great story and great game mechanics. If you did not know this company created the unreal engine that everyone now uses. As for the lag the halo fanboy mentioned their was allot of that in halo reach halo3 and halo drop troopers and many other games for that matter. Once again before you critique a story line pay attention to it first because i do not understand how you see this as a zombie game cause it is not.

Best EVER! Posted by: from: PA on i have been a halo fan, Gears of war fan, COD fan for a long time i even know that the sony psx was the system that was going to have halo thank god microsoft took over :) epic games has created a game that changed all gaming with Gears Of War, No other game has ever had gore like it EVER. not one game before this had graphics where if you shot someone in the head the head would burst into peaces, this game has extreme amounts of blood and gore. then gears of war 2 came out there were many bugs in both gears of war and gears of war 2 but as time went by most of the bugs get fixed and the game comes to life for the real gamer. Gears of War 3 is going to be the best of the 3, there is a beta coming out with Bulletstorm on February 22, 2011. the way the Gears of war games are played is a over the shoulder 3rd person shooter. take cover and climb over cover. GOW3 will be one of the best games of 2011.

Last EPIC Ride Posted by: from: Game World on If this is the last Gears of War game don't miss this one.It has an EPIC storyline,EPIC characters,EPIC weapons,and EPIC surprises.Online play is faster and smoother than Gears 2.With characters old and new you can play as.You can swap weapons with teammates,mark enemy targets,even take out two or more enemies with one blast with the deadly"Sawed Off Shotgun".Online play has changed just a little,Capture the leader is a little like Guardian,but the enemy team must capture and hold your team leader for 30 seconds,Team Deathmatch lets players respawn if you die,so make sure you work as a team.New map desplays before the match make it easier to find out where weapons are.And they even have"Beast mode" it's like Horde mode in Gears 2,but this time YOUR the Horde army taking out COG and stranded humans.Also in the coming months look for new characters, online maps,and more DLC coming to the game,with it's very own update screen.This is a game built to last a very long time,with no slowing down.If you like gore,violence,chared bodies,meat sheilds,and more you wanna buy this game.

Awesome ending to an awesome story Posted by: from: Springfield on Gears of war was the first game i purchased with my xbox, that and Halo, but Gears gave you something else, different style running and a cool weapon idea. As Gears went on it got better each game. Gears of War 3 was probably the best game out of the three. It has awesome graphics, amazing multiplayer, and uses a mainstream for online play instead of host! That was their biggest accomplishment, taking the "host" advantage out to make it fun for everyone. The online maps are big and looks amazing, the story line is a great wrap up to the Gears story with twists, and turns and lots of action. Not only that but you have this story mode that you can play up to hardcore on the first time. I will replay this game with my friends to beat the locusts again on veteran. It is challenging and you can always have a great time shooting people up. Totally worth the purchase if you are a gears fan. If you are not one this game is still amazing and you will like this game! I personally play with friends only because i like team work and winning. But Still an awesome game none the less!

Top of 2011 Posted by: from: Peoria, IL on I have been playing the beta and the im guessing the final product will be really polished. The story mode is said to be the longest of the series. This game should be a must buy for xbox 360 owners.

Completion to the best trilogy in gaming Posted by: from: on campaign: Its finally here..and it was so worth the wait. What a lot of people will find with this installment is how well it controls and how fun and replayable it is due to the better level. What most fans are gonna see, is how the story actually gets somewhere and is pretty much completely awesome, how the characters are wayy better handled, and how much you actually care about whats goin on. In fact, the characters are for the most part the strongest thing about the game. Theres also a part where the music will send a chill down your spine and a lump in your throat. But bein such a massive gears fan, i wouldve liked to see a bigger ending, but to be fair, it was plausible and climactic enough and overall made since so i was ultimatley fine with it, especially the very last few moments before the credits role which were great. now for the multiplayer: now im not a big multiplayer person. In fact, the only game i ever really got into the multiplayer was Black ops, and lost interest after about a week. But this stuff is good, REALLY good. The action runs at a fast and smooth pace, the one liners from the characters put a smirck on your face, and its all just a blast. Overall this is the VERY BEST Gears game and is immensley satisfying.

Super Game for a SNOWY Afternoon Posted by: from: Jefferson City, Mo on I really enjoyed Gears of War 3 and the Gears of Wars series. This game is a wonderful end, accept for junping around. The Harcore setting could be more challenging, but there is always Insane.
