One of the main problems with Gears is that is actually a very fun and satisfying multiplayer experience when the gears turn smoothly. That doesn't happen too often though. So will Gears of War 3 be another broken game at launch? Lets take a look at a few things.
The original Gears of War and Gears 2 both shared some of the same glitches. Gears 1 and Gears 2 both suffered from inexcusable Lag. Neither Gears 1 nor Gears 2 had a multiplayer beta test. Both games are a playground for cheaters. Neither game had dedicated servers. Both games had very noticeable and unfair Host advantage. Both games had weapons that were either overpowered or underpowered. Oh and did I mention Lag?
