This game is awesome! That is the first thing that pops into my head when i think of GOW 3. What a way to end it. If you are a fan of Gears then you will love the gameplay. It's the most refined and precise in the trilogy. This is full on gears! The story is the strongest of the 3 with some very emotional moments in it. You actually feel for these characters that you have come to know well over the years. It also feels like the longest entry in the series. This time around you are fighting Lambent more than Locusts but don't worry they are there a lot as well. You also get to play as different characters. The online is fun as always and the horde mode has been modified to resemble COD zombies more with being able to purchase barricades and weapons. Beast mode is also very fun! All in all this is a game that you must own if you love the series. You will have plenty to keep you busy for months. A sure fire contender for Game of the Year!

Gears of War 3 comes into the community as an underdog, opposed to Battlefield and Call of Duty. Gears of War 3 accepted much hype as the days kept passing by. The anticipation for this, was worth it. Gears is a fantastic series which will always have gamers and players wanting more. Unfortunately, this crazy, gorey series, comes to a halt. Gears has great gameplay, but not a very good storyline for the campaign.
Marcus's father is "gone" but he receives a lost message from him. He and the crew go looking for him while fighting waves and waves of the Locust, which all Gears fans remember from the previous games. The cutscenes are fun, and the campaign is a good time.
Beast and Horde mode are two great ways to tag along with some of your friends and have fun! Beast Mode allows you to change sides and become the Locust. Mean while, the Horde Mode is just a wave by wave mode, which is always fun.
Gears of War 3 is surely a contender for the game of the year, and a game you should pick up NOW!
