I was a big fan of the gears of war series, until this PoS came out. I must admit I've never been more disappointed with a game in all my life. There wasn't a single part of the story I found to be good, the lambent are just too easy to kill even on insane, none of the battles were epic, the last boss fight with the queen was just stupid, and everyones dialog, especially Marcus, was cheesy and stupid. "I'll get the pop corn" WTH is that? The online is even worse on account of the sawed-off and retro lancer. Epic took away the essence of gears, the gnasher battles. even with the new "Alpha" playlist it still isn't the same because the lancer is too overpowered. All anyone does is stand back and shoot from a far distance. thats not what gears 1 or 2 was about and this game has killed the series. to simply put it, Gears is Dead.

Basically an expansion pack from Gears 2. Stale story, tons of cut scenes and NO vehicles make the campaign a chore to go through. Save yourself the time and money and rent or buy something else. (1 out of 10)
