Razor sharp gameplay and an aggressive amount of features never fail to entertain. The campaign stops short of transcendence, but the level of blood, sweat, and heart clearly poured into Gears of War 3 creates a whole that is more than the sum of its parts....Go To Full Review

While the Gears of War 3 campaign will be better remembered for its variety and pacing than dramatic heft, it’s the send off the Gears series deserves; one with enough content to keep it in our minds and disc trays for months to come. Whether you’re craving some closure on the saga of planet Sera, or simply want as much multiplayer bang for your buck until Modern Warfare 3 arrives, you owe it to yourself to play Gears of War 3....Go To Full Review

Gears of War 3 is an experience that must be taken in by every single Xbox 360 owner. The combat is amongst the best you’re likely to find in an action game, complete with precise, rewarding controls. The presentation is the best yet in the series, right down to the way your character shakes while cutting a Locust in half with his Lancer....Go To Full Review

Gears of War 3 delivers immensely entertaining experiences on both sides of The Locust War. But the real triumph is the campaign, a masterpiece of exciting gameplay and emotional storytelling that stands head and shoulders above its predecessors. Even if you don't remember where you were on Emergence Day, this is one adventure you won't soon forget....Go To Full Review

So basically, I like Gears of War 3. It's a great shooter and a great video game in general. It caps off the trilogy extremely well, perhaps better than any recent video game trilogy that I can think of....Go To Full Review

We won’t tease you for longer than this sentence – Gears of War 3 is awesome. The campaign is epic, with action sequences that are more intense, weapons that are more powerful, enemies that are more formidable and heroes that are more relatable than ever before. ...Go To Full Review

A triumphant third act for the high-octane series that improves upon the already brilliant offerings of the previous two games. Masculine and violent, but thoughtfully designed and executed....Go To Full Review

Gears of War 3 is the best in the series. While it doesn’t make generational leaps in terms of its visual presentation, and the multiplayer modes are more evolution than revolution, it adds a whole new layer of emotion to the dynamic. ...Go To Full Review

Epic has not re-invented the wheel with Gears 3, they've simply improved on a formula that was pretty awesome in the first place. The gameplay is the same, but a little tighter, it looks great and has some really beautiful locations; especially towards the end of the game....Go To Full Review

Just as the Xbox is best remembered for Halo 1&2, the Gears of War trilogy is likely to be the 360’s most fondly regarded exclusive series in the years to come. We have a hard time accepting that Epic is going to step away from the series now – yes, Gears of War 3 wraps things up perfectly, but since when has that ever stopped a big gaming franchise? If this is really the end, however, it’s a wonderful send off....Go To Full Review

I knew I should have been excited about the conclusion to the Gears of War trilogy, but I just couldn't muster up the motivation. Now that I've had a chance to go through the campaign and try some of the new modes out, that's all changed, and I wonder why I ever doubted Epic and their ability to finish out this series on a high note. Gears of War 3 takes us to new places and tells us some great stories, and while the shooting action might feel just a little tired for veterans of both previous games, it's still very much worth the price of admission - especially once you start digging into the online modes....Go To Full Review

What we have here ladies and gentlemen is a proper addition to a fabulous shooter franchise, crammed from top to bottom with content that's guaranteed to keep you occupied for hours. Gears of War 3 is a game you'll surely want to add to your collection. This is undeniably a terrific and well-polished action game. Of course, there's a lot more that can be done with the gameplay mechanics and yet most of the game relies heavily on what's tried and true. The series reached a high point and that in itself is as obvious as it gets. People may expect a bit more than what they've already played in GoW and GoW 2....Go To Full Review

It's not often you get to witness the 'end' of something, especially when you've actually been a follower from the beginning. That's not to say that there won't be more Gears games - the never ending money train works in mysterious ways - but in terms of this 'arc', the end has well and truly come. There's no doubt there's been a lot of hype and anticipation surrounding Gears of War 3, but you'll be pleased to know there's a fun and enjoyable game behind it all....Go To Full Review

Gears of War 3 is a great game indeed, one that fans will most assuredly adore. It does lack that unique, intangible spark that the past two games had, but that does not mean it's a poor game in any way. I have my disappointments, but I cannot claim I had a bad time....Go To Full Review

To say that Gears 3 is the weakest game of the trilogy does seem a little harsh but, no matter which way we look at it, we keep ending up at that conclusion. The core gameplay is as strong as it ever has been but you need more than that at the climax to a trilogy – it's just all a bit too much of the same as before and not enough of the innovation that made the previous two games so strong. Epic may well have been the victims of their own success in that regard – perhaps the series just peaked too early. ...Go To Full Review
