"An epic game made by Epic..OH THE IRONY !"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Now my review is based on the first day that I have spent with Gears of War 3 and already, it refuses to let go. Judging from the screens, I'm pretty sure that you already know what to expect from the graphics department.

Gameplay wise- Well, it is your typical Gears formula with plenty of taking cover and shooting. However, it has been beefed up because guns feel more powerful than ever, with the Retro lancer being most definetly welcome.

The campaign puts the last two Gears games to shame, let's put it at that.

The multiplayer- Well with dedicated servers, matchmaking is faster so you don't have to wait for an eternity in the lobby. This also means that there is no more host advantage so expect less ragequits online because you have just as much lag advantage as the other guy. The game modes themselves are fun and Capture the Leader is a must-play. I can say with confidence that Gears 3's multiplayer is one to be played for years to come.

Now I do not know what to say about Horde and Beast mode because I am not generally a fan of fighting endless waves of enemies. But with that being said, Gears of War 3 is worth its full price for the exquisite and robust Campaign and Multiplayer modes.

If you are a fan of the past two titles, there is no excuse for you to pass on the superior-in-every-way sequel.

"GOTY 2011- Hell Yeah!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Ive been a massive fan of the gears franchise from the start, and while im sad that this game wraps up the trilogy, it does it with some serious style!

First up the new horde mode is fantastic, just as challenging as it was in gears 2, but it really ramps up the challenge with every tenth battle being against a boss, want to slay that brumak- eat your heart out! And as usual its even better with friends, me and my mates are going to get some serious mileage out of horde 2.0

Beast mode is another awesome addition, learning all the strengths and weakness of the different enemies is awesome fun, even the humble ticker has its own cool uses such as destroying barriers, or just blowing people to bits, if thats your thing.

The campaign is truly bigger, clocking in at around 15 hours, maybe longer if you go after the collectibles. The story is far more focused this time around, with all lose ends from the previous games bought to a stunning end, and epic has gone above and beyond to make this the most polished gears yet, the set pieces are amazing, the lighting system looks beautiful, smoke and explosions have never looked so good, and the new extra brutal finishing moves never get old.

Theres just so much I want to say about this game, but I could be here all day.

Just get it!

4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This game has exellent graphics and it is amazingally adicting. Gow 3 is very good for achievements aswell, They are very easy to get and there is 50 achievements to unlock. I overall think this game is great but it could be a tiny bit better. :)

Description

Developed by acclaimed studio Epic Games and available only on Xbox 360, “Gears of War 3” plunges players into a harrowing tale of hope, survival, and brotherhood that will conclude the current story arc for “Gears of War.” With the last human city destroyed and the remaining survivors stranded, time is running out for Marcus and his comrades as they fight to save the human race from the jaws of extinction.

The story takes place eighteen months after the events of Gears of War 2 and the loss of the human stronghold of Jacinto.  Marcus, Baird, Dom and company continue their fight to save human civilisation, as they battle the Locust and face new threats from within the planet throughout the campaign mode.

Here is what else you can expect from 2011’s most highly anticipated game: 
  • An enthralling cinematic story that captivates players in an intimately intense action game
  • Five-on-five multiplayer experience as well as four player campaign co-op experience
  • New multiplayer game modes including ‘Beast Mode’ - offering a new twist to the game where you take on the role of the locust horde and their assorted variations!
  • New maps including: Trenches which features an impressive sand storm that reduces your visibility, as well as Overpass, Mercy, Checkout, and Thrashball
  • New weapons including: The Bayonet Charge, The Retro Lancer, The Sawed-off Shotgun, The OneShot - a heavy sniper rifle that shoots through shields or cover for a surprise one shot kill, The Incendiary Grenade, The Digger Launcher and a few subtle tweaks to old favourites Hammerburst and The Classic Lancer. Don’t forget that each weapon now has its own execution move!
