Gears of War 3 Review [MediaStinger]

MediaStinger: "It’s been nearly five years since the original breakthrough Gears of War was released on November 7, 2006, aka “Emergence Day”, which not only marks the initial Locust invasion against mankind in the massively popular franchise’s story, but for gamers its meaning also runs deeper. Armed with one of the most memorable advertising campaigns in gaming history via an unforgettable marketing launch against a haunting “Mad World” cover, E-Day signifies the first game to truly showcase the potential of the Xbox 360 and revolutionize the industry, spawning hordes of wannabes and copycats. But with the first sequel’s hampering multiplayer issues, developer Epic Games needed to do just about everything right in the third and final game to keep fans happy. Especially since the Gears of War series has become one of the premiere exclusives on the Xbox 360, all eyes are on Epic to see if they can capture lightning in a bottle once more and live up to their name."

Absolutely agree! Don't knock it until you have tried it folks!

In the review it says: "The best looking graphics of any Gears or Xbox 360 game." In my honest opinion as a nonfanboy I have to say "best looking graphics on any system." I highly recommend you all check it out. Every few minutes you will say "Wow!"

I'm not saying that there aren't games that won't beat it graphically. Uncharted looks great. I'm saying that it is my opinion with the games currently out. You can agree or disagree. Doesn't make a difference to me.

If it was GOTY material it would be coming out against games like Uncharted 3 and Skyrim. Epic know it's not up to the calibre of those games so release in September when it's quiet.

Gears 3 will never win GOTY.

Agreed! Have to wait for Uncharted to see which is better in the end

Ghost1073210d ago

Uncharted 3 looks better.

And when do console gamers care about graphics? x-)

Until I play Uncharted 3 Ghost, Gears of War will be goty in my opinion. The graphics are beautiful! down to the lighting of the damaged city.

The good reviews keep coming.

I know uncharted is a good game and i will buy it too because i enjoy to play but 4 players campaing and an online experiance like Gears, just Gears give me that.

I'm not a 360 fan, if Gears was ps3 exclusive i will say the same.

This games are so good that it will be stopid not to buy it because a fan thing!

All these skeptics havnt played gears 3. Go get a 360, buy gears 3, then come back and say its not the best game this year. This game is amazing in graphics and how much action going on at once with 4 player co-op, its insane. Add to that beast mode, hoard mode, arcade mode, online, bots, what more could you ask for? I always liked gears but it was never one of my favorites, this game made me a believer. Most epic game ive played and the best looking game ive seen on consoles. Epic really knocked this outa the park.
