First off i will start by saying im a big gears story fan not a mp fan as it has been a he who host wins type game so i steer clear of it.The graphics of the game are awsome and detailed but i did run into a couple of loading issues and some sound part that did not pick up, i did install this game on my harddrive so as help with what turned out to be miminal load screens.also i agree with the ppl who said gears 3 did not end how it should as far as answering all the questions that have built up over 5 years,it just should have been longer if not else than to close all the loopholes it left if this is the last marcus lead gears than they should have done more with some of the points that were brought up towards the end of the game that i was looking forward to seeing answered,no dice very dissipointed. the game was fun and took me around 10 hours to finish the weapons seem to be tuned since gears 2 and seemed to me more accurate except the sniper rifle not sure what happend but i could not use well at all, i was really good in gears 2 and could hepl my team in hord by picking off guys at will in this on i felt i was more of a hinderance than help so after several tries i gave up.Hord more is easier than in 2 ( made it to wave 12 my first try) not sure about buying all the ammo and upgrades seems like a good thing but i was always running out of money to the point i could not even buy ammo resupply,yep 500 bucks to reloadd your ammo.beast mode was ok but i only play by myself so cant really comment further.overall great game that i hope future DLCs put closure to the story cause this one failed on several points.

My Big Beef is the lack of big Awsome boss Fights'' Gears 2 Wins over the Boss Fights. Also how about some New Weapons?? Gears 3 has a very long one player campaign but at times its kind of boring dont have enough Awsome Moments like Gears 2 did. Over all you cant go wrong with a Buy i love alll the M.P. Modes plus you can play alll the Modes offline this is very cool adds to the value. Hord mode is Great. This is the kind of Value i want for 59.99'' Gears 3 is a game you will be playing months down the road and allll Games should offer this. Great Buy even if the Boss fights Lack in the campaign and the old weapons. Thanks

Love the storyline. If you are familiar and enjoyed with the previous two games, you will LOVE this one. The entire story is well written. New weapons and online play modes, really well done.
