"but for what ever reason it hasn't satisfied fans of the series; as Metacritic's current user review score is sitting at 7.7/10"
The majority of those poor review scores on metacritic are 0s and 1s. Most of those 0s and 1s probably aren't fan reviews or even reviews by people who have played the game yet.
If you didn't know, thegameheadz, games tend to get voted down alot on metacritic due to....I'm not going to say it, but we've seen previous examples for this in other high-profile exclusive games before and gears is no exception.

I mean, just look at Halo 3 and Reach. The overall review score from critics is 94 and 91 respectively while the "users" have them rated as 7.5 and 7.4 respectively. Also, look at forza 3- 92 from critics and 7.9 from users.

Halo Reach was good but not amazing, maybe a different example would make a better point.

Metacritic's user reviews belong to fanboys now, for 360 or PS3.

Bottom-line..metacric still one cares about the fake Metacritic user reviews from the Meta-trolls that have been there for years for all games.

Proof of how bad Meta user reviews got..they have had negative reviews for titles that hadnt released.

I generally don't trust reviews, especially the user kind. Their standard for judgement isn't exactly universal!

Instead, I play it myself! That said, great games tend to have a large following that repeatedly gets played with long long legs, and it seems Gears of War 3 is one of those titles. The community will probably be vibrant for years to come!

Maybe all the bought out reviews are thru being released. I've heard mostly good things from actual gamers I trust though so I"m not insulting the game I'm just saying copy and paste 9/10 reviews don't really mean shit. The truth comes out in details.

I usually trust the user review, but 7 is somewhat low when considering the complete game.

No one cares about user reviews, many of them are made by fanboys.
