Did Epic Need To Make Any Changes to Gears of War 3?

Mike Deneen from GoozerNation writes:

"It’s pretty universal amongst game journalists, reviewers, and gamers alike that Gears of War 3 is a good game. Very few are arguing against its merits as one of the better games to come out so far in 2011. After all, it did win most anticipated game of 2011 (and Microsoft made sure to remind you of this every step of the way). However, some people did note that the game made very little changes to the previous installments of the franchise. I’d also be hard pressed to find anyone to disagree with that. But the question is, did Epic Games need to make any changes? Was there something monumentally flawed with the game, or were people clamoring for more or something new?"

no mention of the broken weapon balance system due to the sawed off? yeah that was an unnecessary change...

Even with online this game has already gotten pretty boring. I just wanted the console bundle. That 320 gig harddrive is win!

I hated the sawed off in the beta, but they've done a much better job balancing it. I really don't have much of a problem with it anymore. Most good players use the Lancer anyway -- so many newbies try to bum rush you like morons, not realizing that there's other weapons than the shotguns.

My main problem with Gears 3 was the weak storyline... it just wasn't good. At all. The second improved on the first, but the third feels like a major regression. I know Gears isn't known for its stories, but that doesn't mean they shouldn't be taken into consideration.

The sawed-off shotgun can be annoying in KOTH sometimes, but w/e.

I just roll with the hammerburst and the gnashed shotgun :D

I had no problems with the sawed-off shotgun's damage but the spread was insane. They didn't adjust the damage just the damage spread which I thought was necessary.

My only problem with Gears 3 is the SOS. That is the anti-christ equivilent of weapons.

Admittedly, I hated the Retro Lancer. Really though, I just enjoy chainsawing a Grub.

I wonder if its going to be more mplayer only with the next game
