Gears of War 3 Limited Edition
Limited Edition CD
The first gears of war limited edition CD had i think extra gamer pictures and a free map pack not sure about the map pack but am sure about gamer pictures.
Spectacular price for a spectacular game.
This game is brilliant. I'm glad I took the extra time to find the limited edition because, in my oppinion, it was probably worth more than 80 dollars. The game itself is amazing, it had one of the greatest storylines I've ever had the privilege to play through. The multiplayer was a lot better then that of Gears of War 2, and the servers are actually fast and efficient. Horde 2.0 is a BIG step up from Horde. It doesn't feel like just a survival mode, it's got more to it then that, same for Beast mode. The contents of the limited edition were awesome too. My favorite items in particular were the COG flag and the Octus award. the other items were great as well, but I think you'd need to be a die-hard Gears fan to fully appreciate the contents like the H.o.D schematic, the letter to Marcus, the pictures, and Adam Fenix's will. Overall, I think this is a great game with an extraordinary price. If you've been a fan of Gears from the beginning, you should DEFINITELY get the limited edition.
The Mystery behind the different editions!!
So the Epic Edition has Dog Tags, a Poster, an extra CD probably for music, and a statue of Marcus Fenix. Limited Edition has all that excepts statue. Hope that helps anyone!
This game will be satisfying
This is my first pre Order Game and I am glad I did so far. I played the Beta and am vary satisfied with the gameplay they nailed the 3ed person controls near perfectly the only problem I have had with it is many times when I am jumping around trying to get away from a guy I suddenly go to a dead stop and am looking in a random diection and by the time I collect what to do next I am a goner, The new wepons and the redisigned ones that I used have been perfected. The CTL game mode is perfect, quick match finding, great gameplay, and a LOT of fun. I think the other modes need a bit of work though it takes a bit longer to get in matches for me and I and other player have experenced some vary strange... what can't be called anything else but gliches or hacking 20 people "and counting" have told me that and I have experenced people getting kills with the sawed off shotgun at insane distinces of at least 10-20 feet, which is not supposto be posible, along with other not possible kills. But I trust Epic Games and I know that the final game will have these things fixed I mean thats what a Beta's for right?
Great Beta. Looking forward to full game.
I have yet to pre-order GoW3, but I'm going to soon. Fortunately, I got to play the beta the last week because my friend gave me a code to play it. It was so good, I played it and unlocked Cole Train in Retail and the Golden Retro Lancer in Retail. I can't wait to see the full game. GoW1 and GoW2 had great campaigns but the first had a great multiplayer and the second had O.K. multiplayer. Epic said this was made to be the median for multiplayer. If you are looking for a game to play online with friends, this will be a great game for you. If you are new to the Gears of War series and want to play the campaign, I suggest spending the extra 20 bucks now and get the first two games (I'd also get the normal edition and not limited). But, if you are a long-time fan, and have played each game before, this version is perfect. It has extras with it and not too expensive. If you are looking at the epic edition, I wouldn't suggest that. It is an extra 70 bucks for a "hand-crafted" PVC statue of Marcus and a book. In my opinion, that is not worth an extra 70 bucks. I hope this has helped you with your decision. "Brothers to the End"
Limited Edition is a Better Deal than Epic Edition
After reviewing both editions, it is clear that the limited edition is a much better and cheaper deal than epic edition. As of now, the only thing different in epic edition is a marcus fenix statue. if there are no other in-game unlockables revealed later, then epic edition is truly a rip-off. In limited, you get virtually everything epic edition offers but the marcus fenix [paper-weight] with a price tag $70 lower. There MUST be something not yet revealed for the epic edition because no one in there right mind would spend $70 more just for a statue.
want somethin' shiney
I really hope the epic editon comes with a lancer or somthing really sweet like that... does anybody know what the prize will be
The best game of the year
I waited a long time for this game and when I finally got my hands on it, words could not describe it. This game has an amazing story that really keeps the player involved in whats happening and does a good job of connecting with the player. The online is intense and balanced, and is a blast to play with a group of friends. But in all honesty its really Horde 2.0 that keeps me playing this masterpiece, horde if you don't already know is a version of The call of duty franchises zombies. In this game mode you don't only slay the grubs but you can build buy and trade to keep the good times rolling. This game is a beautiful installment to the gears series and I highly recommend it to any gamer.
Carmine looks BADASS
gears 3 will definitely dominate the xbox community. and the third carmine looks like hes gonna deal it out, unlike anthony n ben. R.I.P. and i also heard that clayton carmine will survive this time around on account of 63% of people voted for him to live! i only wish he had a better name. lol i want my beta back! it felt like it was to short anyway. sure i got everything but... i still had somthing to hold me over.
I'm So Pumped!!!!
I can not wait any longer for this game to come out! I'm also very anxious to play the beta. I love what Epic did with the new options to customize gun skins along with the new retro lancer and sawed off double barrel shotgun. The online multiplayer really looks promising! Also to mention you will be able to unlock new executions along with medals to show other players your accomplishments in multiplayer! The only thing I am worried about with this game is that I hope Epic didnt spend to much time with the multiplayer and not the campaign. The campaign means everything to me especially to hardcore gears fans because unfortunately this will be the last gears game. I also want to know more about Adam Fenix and his role in the gears universe. Theres so many questions to be answered in this campaign. I just hope it answers them all! Other than that small thing this will for surely be a game to destroy modern warfare 3 and other games that get in its way. If you can spend the little more extra cash I would recommend getting the limited edition mostly due to the probable cool dlc that comes with it. The epic edition is kinda costly and comes probably with the same stuff as the limited edition except it will have a statue and an art book or something like that. Unfortunately we will have to wait until E3 to know what will come with the limited and epic editions of gears of war 3. Do your self a favor and pre order this game right now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
