  • In Gears of War 3, players fight on as Marcus Fenix, the grizzled war hero and leader of Delta Squad. Eighteen months after the fall of the last human city, the war against the Locust rages on. Meanwhile, deep beneath the surface, a fearsome new threat is infecting the planet from within. With survivors scattered and civilization in ruins, time is running out for Marcus and his comrades as they fight to save the human race.

    Key Game Features:

    • Enthralling cinematic story. Experience the epic finale to the Gears of War trilogy and fight alongside Delta Squad to rescue humanity. Discover the fate of Marcus and his surviving comrades in this immersive and emotionally engaging story.
    • Unparalleled gameplay. Gears of War 3 builds upon the series’ genre-defining gameplay and captivates players in an intimately intense action game. The latest chapter in the saga introduces new playable COG characters and fresh challenges with ferocious enemies.
    • Explosive multiplayer action. One of the definitive multiplayer experiences on Xbox LIVE, Gears of War 3 features new cooperative and competitive multiplayer experiences for veteran players and rookies alike.
    • Amazing visuals. Gears of War 3 pushes the envelope for stunning visuals on Xbox 360. Through the latest advances in Unreal Engine 3 technology, the game delivers improved graphics, animation and lighting that immerse players in the destroyed beauty of the rich environments.

    So let’s have a look at all the action in my video review.

    Now the scores (insert drum roll) …

    Gameplay: 9

    Gears of war 3 is built up on years of experience and it shows when you play. Like a fine tuned car the controls are immediate and responsive never leaving you feeling out of touch with your character. An absolute gaming delight.

    The co-op side of the game has definitely been a thought from the very beginning, both local & online, and at the same time presents itself just as well when played in single player, which is a real treat not to feel left out just because the internet is down for the night.

    Graphics: 8

    There are some that may say that the unreal engine is showing some age now but thanks to a brand new lick of paint Gears 3 still seems to shine like it always does, the look and feel is maintained throughout the series so there’s nothing new here character wise although they have all had a few wrinkles and scars added.

    The environments present themselves very well, with water and foliage, destructable items and environments it looks really great.

    Sound: 8

    It’s big and it’s EPIC that’s it really some fantastic musical scores to accompany every big battle or emotional moment and all with the right kind of pacing you only notice it’s there when you need to and that’s the kinda sound you want.

    3D: 9

    Gears was made for 3D it was simply amazing and a must for any 3D gamer out there, the game has built-in depth controls and is very easy to set up and unlike some other big titles sporting the third dimension Gears never ghosts or duplicates during play an absolute 3D gem.

    OVERALL FUN-FACTOR: 9

    New to the series? Or are you a Gears vet? It doesn’t matter, every shooter fan is going to enjoy Gears of War 3! It’s got a huge epic single player experience with a high replay value, and a multiplayer co-op that I think will make sure this game is played for many years to come. In my opinion it’s a gaming gem and a must-have for every Xbox 360 owner.

      After playing and beating this game to a pulp with hours of gameplay, I can say that this game most definitely lives up to this review. The co-op interplay with a single-player experience was a perfect combination. Graphic wise it stumps previous Gears of War titles but does not shine as an iconic image of new age graphics such as Battlefield 3. It most definitely was not low resolution or poorly imaged. The style and graphics were both glossy, gritty, and quite the spectacle. As someone who isn’t entirely for 3D, I can’t quite say it’s an aspect I particularly enjoy but I’m glad to see that it was found to be well designed.
      Overall, I’d give this game about a 9. It’s definitely a game you can come back to and replay with enjoyment. The constant Gears of War 3 online events allow for a varying multiplayer experience that will tickle your love for gore and giggles. If you’re new to the series, it’s easy to pick up the franchise where it is now. It was definitely worth my money.

      I think the sawed off shotgun is going to be my weapon of choice for many a multiplayer fan. I’m personally not big on the tactics used w/ the weapon in multiplayer but once you get the hang of it, it makes a decent up close weapon. In the campaign though it’s not really a weapon you should be using. I wanted to play this game for the brutality and the story. I got my first opportunity to see this game in person at a co-worker’s house from DISH a few days ago and noticed the game delivers but it isn’t worth $50-$60 purchase price in my opinion. I would recommend waiting until the price comes way down. Again it is fun, But it has no replay value and a lot of content cut from the 1st game. Wait until it’s cheaper or rent it using Blockbuster@Home!
