Ok so I always have high hopes for Gears and it did not disappoint. The story is as always Scorsese like and the graphics will make you explore parts of the world that don't have anything to do with the story. It's a good end to the trilogy and is one of the few times in a game that the rendered trailers match the actual game play. Definitely worth the rent and if your into Gears online then worth the buy. Next up, Battlefield and COD MW3....can't wait!!!!

Best FPS shooter since MW2

The campaign story line is great and the game has amazing graphics. The maps were not too redundant and the A.I. team members do their fare share of killings and revives. I like how the campaingn was not too short making it worth while paying $60 for the game.

The game is definitely a keeper and not a rental. I am pretty happy with the game and will be playing it until Bad Co3 and MW3 comes out.

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.
