This game should be called Gears of Casual. The only thing this game has going for it is amazing graphics. The story is cheesy, the multiplayer may as well be shotguns only since any automatic takes a full clip and is highley unaccurate, and in campaign, no matter what the difficulty, your AI is unkillable and will revive you non stop so you can breeze through it. If your looking for a casual game that brings nothing to the table then this is the game for you!
This is one of the worse trilogies ive ever played. The story line is a rip off of so many games before, none of the controls or mechanics are original, sure, they are slightly better than their predicesors, but they are all rip offs also. Played it for 3hrs, and returned it like i did the other 2, don't really know why I bought it.
Just cause it looks good doesn't means it plays ..

Exactly, what the title says just cause it looks good doesn't mean it playes good. The game looks nice. Slightly improve graphics. Nice characters nice story but honestly the gameplay sucks. I rented this expecting the flaws of Gears series gone with hit detection after a pretty good beta but...no its still hard to kill people after putting two clips in them. Still a shotgun and roll fest. The story honestly at this point doesn't make since and its all over the place. Top that with bad hit detection now also in campaign and even worse when you do online co-op campaign, story, horde, or beast mode. Just rent you will see. I'm not fanboying hating or anything I'm just honest I own both consoles. You can google me I do streaming and such but this game is a let down because they didn't improve it for today's market. I'm just playing Gears 2 with more modes and shinier graphics and that sucks!
