Gears of War 3
Gears of war 3 delivered big in horde.
I've always thought that the first gears of war was just "alright" nothing too special about it. But then gears of war 2 exceeded my expectations through the roof and I fell in love with the franchise, so needless to say I was excited for gears of war 3. First things first, the graphics for this game were unbelievable, the detail in every little thing looked amazing. The all new horde mode was my favorite thing about this game. It was addicting when it came to leveling up whoever your character may be. I loved how you could level up the fortifications, turrets, and so on. That was very well done. The only complaint I have with the game was the campaign. Yes I understand that everything is so scarce and limited. But do we really have to do an entire act on just getting fuel? I felt as if the gears were just running errands for the majority of it. I felt as if the franchise lost its imagination. Part of it may be my fault as well. I was hoping for another large leap (from gears 1 to gears 2). I missed the brilliant imagination when you were inside a gargantuan worm destroying cities, or riding a brumak, or discovering and exploring the locusts stronghold underneath the surface. And in that department I felt gears of war 3 did not deliver. But all of the multiplayer modes were addicting. Horde was incredible, beast was fun as well, and along with the playlists in versus. The story line started off a little weak but got stronger throughout the campaign. In the end gears of war 3 is an incredible game and excellent for gamers who like to play multiplayer with one another.
good overall game.. I enjoy shotgun battles 1v1..
very team oriented
The best Xbox 360 exclusive IMO
It is the best game i have ever played and til' this day it is still my favorite xbox 360 games ever just AMAZING can't wait for Gears of war 4 for xbox one
The graphics got soooo much better overtime. The story line i loved. I got emotional when dom jus decided to (SPOILER!) And even the 3rd brother of the carmines made an appearance here!!!! WOOOOOOOO I LOVE YOU CARMINE! The Guns got so much better and i love the diff skins for them. The online play is super fun and competitive and keeps me on edge. Sniper has to be my fave. Very Great Game. Not to mention the easter eggs are hella hilarious.
The Perfect End to the Groundbreaking Shooter
Epic managed to introduce story and in-depth plotlines back to the shooter genre with the Gears of War series, and now they have managed to hold strong and bring closure to the story of Delta Squad. This installment manages to intertwine the cinematic moments that have driven the series thus far with an updated multiplayer experience that is worth the fee for Xbox Live Gold. I recommend this title and series to anyone who is interested in a good story AND wants a good third-person shooter.
Great campaign cool horde mode beast mode is good and if you don't have xbox live you can play with ai players and you can set their difficulty. dlc is awesome! BUY IT NOW!
An exciting, over-the-top experience
Gears of War 3 is one of those neat, over-the-top summer-blockbuster-style action games that any fan of 3rd-person-shooters or action games in general should probably pick up (especially since the price has come down significantly). Great graphics, good music used to good effect and excellent sound effects.... solid and satisfying cover-based-shooter gameplay... and probably the most interesting story of the first 3 Gears games (never played the newest one where you play as Baird). I'd personally have given Gears 3 about a 9.4-9.6 out of 10 if the Gamestop rating system did tenths of a point....it's not the greatest game I've ever played but it ranks among the most polished and refined games I've played and is a really good time while providing a good amount of content (and a multiplayer suite with lots of options).
If you liked the first 2 Gears of War you'll enjoy the 3rd even more. It takes everything that made the first 2 games and refines it even more..... Gears 1 was pretty rough (and my least favorite in the series), Gears 2 did a LOT of polishing of rough edges and (in my opinion) had a much better direction in terms of the story/plot. Gears of War 3 continues this aforementioned improving of all aspects. Graphics and sound are the best in the series and are amazing for any game period. The combat is as smooth as ever with one major difference: since 4-player co-op is now an option the level designs lean more towards freedom of movement and lots of flanking.... larger, more open areas tend to be your battlefield rather than the more narrow, corridor-like venues predominate in Gears 1 and 2. The weapons all handle a little differently... but in a good way. All of the old Gears staples return and a few new goodies liven up the action. The biggest change between Gears 2 and 3 is the enemy variety: an entire new class of enemies are thrown into the mix. Saying more than that would give away too much of the game and its plot.... but just know that you'll have a whole bunch of new baddies to shoot/snipe/chainsaw-bayonet.
A bit shorter than my usual reviews because I'm really REALLY tired for some reason, but I can whole-heartedly recommend Gears of War 3 to most any gamer, but especially those who favor action/shooters. The larger battle-venues allow for a little more strategy in your engagements... allowing for flanking with a shotgun, sniping from distance, finding a good sandbag-position to lay down some enfilading fire while the rest of your team engages head-on. While I haven't done this firsthand, this game seems like it would be a blast to play with a group.... it has split-screen but you can also have Xbox Live parties join in... and speaking of which; Horde mode is back! Between the lengthy campaign (which by itself has some good replay value), Horde mode (where you fight off wave after wave of enemies with a group), and regular multiplayer, there is a lot of content here. As of the time of writing (7-7-13) Gears of War is going for about $10.....if you haven't played any of the Gears games I'd strongly recommend playing Gears 1 and 2 first (you can pick up all 3 for something like $25). You really can't beat it for the price.... whether you are talking about the entire initial Gears Trilogy or Gears 3 by itself.
Xbox 360 Savior
Gears of war 3 in my opinion is the best to offer from the Xbox 360 especially if your looking for a shooter. It's timeless and I hope a new trilogy comes to the Xbox One. But it has to be made only by Epic Studios because Gears Of War Judgement was horrible it couldn't have been worst it's like M.Night shyamalan made the plot.
Gears 3 is one of my favorite Xbox 360 games, it's got the whole package. It's kind of a war game, which gives it a hardcore feel. It's got that sci-fi feel to it, because you get to fight Polyps and Leviathens. That's pretty awesome from my perspective. The weapons are very accurate, the other features are really good too. I strongly recommend this game, more so than I would most other games. If you've got an Xbox and need a wicked cool game to add to your collection, go and get this. You won't regret it.
fun to play very intense
Has good graphics and a very emotional but at the same time exciting story. great game overall hahah
