From the review:
"The popularity of the Gears of War series has grown to monumental heights since its inception back in 2006. Back then, the series was still young and naïve, attempting to find its own place, its own purpose in the mess of video game hits and misses. Since that time, the team at Epic Games have gone above and beyond everything enthusiasts had been expecting from the series, proving that the shortcomings in the first Gears of War would only lead to greater success in the future. The conclusion to the series, Gears of War 3, is an extremely moving piece of work; portraying everything that Epic must have envisioned from the beginning."
