Gears of War 3 is still going strong in its 3rd title in the gears series that follows on from the destruction and mayhem of the previous games. It has a decent campaign and it's still one of the few you can play 4 player with 2 people on one console. Multiplayer is even better, with horde mode and the option to play against bots with your friends. Gears of War 2 is still my favourite, so I can't give it a 5, but it's really close!
In multiplayer you cannot find people to join you once you change the difficulty level. It really ruins the experience, cause it is too easy. But Gears Of War 3 itself is really great. Unless you have a lot of friends for GOR3 - don't expect to play horde mode on higher difficulties.
Cut to the ops: Gears of War 3 is simply incredible! This epic battle ballad is a must have for every single gamer on the box - or at least the ones who enjoyed the previous episodes! The graphics are improved, the scenes will sometimes kick down your jaws into the trench - the aging Unreal3 engine still knows the drill! The sound department still delivers us the gripping atmosphere of gunfight and bombing. All in all, this piece is assembled really tight. The new enemies and the blowing co-op mode will have a hold on you and your party for 10+ hours through difficulties and you won't even feel it tiring to cut through the foes, but entertaining. If you feel skilled enough, then you are into one of the best multiplayer experience of this generation including the waves of Horde and the opposing Beast modes! And not just coming waves, but engineering the obstacles and stationary guns as aid against the enemy! crazy stuff : ) I should highly recommend Gears of War 3 and the whole trilogy to every gamer!
This game really shows the capabilities of the 360s graphics system. The gameplay is really good, the story nice, but it's mainly a shooter, so the story not too important. Gears Of War 2 was also great, but here the developers really pushed the system to its limits. But there is no slowdown, even when he'll breaks loose with four players and tons of monsters in the screen. In the cut scenes however, there are some slowdown, but this really doesn't hurt the gameplay. The controls are very good, the player always has full control, this is really a good example of how a shooter needs to be implemented.
Gears Of War 3 is epic, and almost the best game ever made. Some minor things are a bit disappointing, as in the other two games, such as the thoughtfulness of the story. Otherwise, it's great, and really fun. All of the shooting and dodging is still as fun as ever, so everyone who loved the first and second parts, will love this one.
Gears of war 3 is probably one of my favourite 3rd person shooter games of all time. It has so much to offer in terms of graphics and game play. It's all so different to anything that's been done before! The campaign can speak for itself! It's totally mind-boggling whilst being packed full of fun and adventure. The online play is very challenging - there are a lot of good players out there. I also like Horde mode, in which, there's endless waves of creatures trying to kill you, approaching from all directions. Just holding your ground isn't enough in any way on Gears of War 3. It's all about fighting back with everything you've got! It's a great game in so many ways, and I highly recommend that you buy it.
Gears of War 3 may just be the best 3rd person shooter of this generation. It takes everything that players loved from the previous Gears Of War games, and makes it even better. The online multi-player is improved, the story co-op play (up to 4 players) has been made more enjoyable, and the Horde mode has been tweaked and fiddled with to make it all the more frantic. The new additions to the game, including "Beast Mode", new weapons, and many bug fixes from Gears of War 2, are all accommodated really well. The story continues with the Hollywood-like style of previous Gears of War games. It's a must-buy for Xbox 360 owners.
Till Gears Of War 3 arrived to the market, I was not very pleased with first and third person shooters. Gears of War 3 not only showed me that the new generation (360, PS3) was bringing sophisticated graphics but also new aspects of the game, like covers. A superb continuation to Gears Of War 2 that offers more in every aspect. Gears Of War 3 is just as revolutionary as its predecessor was, and it closes an interesting story. Everyone who enjoyed the previous games will find here more or less the same action, which is all that we asked for when Gears Of War 2 ended.
