I'm shocked. Giantbomb gives a firstparty 360 game 5 out of 5!?

I don't know if you're being sarcastic or not, but regardless, EPIC is not owned in anyway by Microsoft, so they are most definitely not first party. And GB does not casually hand out 5 star ratings, so I trust Jeff on this one.

Still need to get/play Deus Ex.  This game is new & 
already needs to be put on the back burner.   Could
be awhile before I circle back to it.. :/   Haven't even
finished Gears 2 yet..

Pre-ordered and officially stoked. Thanks for a great review Jeff!

FUCK!!! the way the Locust shoot out of the ground is the best thing ever.

I cannot wait to play this next week!

Posted by ZarakixKenpachi

Can't wait to get it! Waiting to get an email saying my preorder has shipped.

Posted by ThePickle

Haven't played 1 or 2. I own a 360. That makes me a minority. I'll likely stay there because I have don't have any interest in playing video games at this point.

PS3 Fanboy here. I prefer Uncharted 3, and just wanted to let GoW fans know because, you know, this review has nothing to do with Uncharted 3 and I'm feeling a bit inadequate...

I don't understand the eternal boner people have for Gears. I did enjoy the first game when it came out. It did very well that no other game was doing well at the time. However, since the cover based action thing has been done to death. They did nothing new it 2, and it still looks like they are doing nothing new. What they are doing, though, is done very well albeit boring.

I have no desire to play as a bunch of steroid jacked bro ass motherfuckers. That isn't me, that isn't what I want to be, that isn't what I want to relate to. This is still the same mindless, "shoot dudes in the face" game.

I really shouldn't waste my time with a stupid statement like this but out of curiosity i checked for myself. Here are the results.

5 out of 5 for 360 exclusives:

Gears of War 2, Gears of War 3, Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2, Forza 3, Shadow Complex and Limbo (which i count only because it remained exclusive for almost a year)

5 out of 5 for PS3 exclusives:

Metal Gear Solid 4, LittleBigPlanet, LittleBigPlanet 2, Killzone 2, InFamous and Uncharted 2.

Hope this help you and your insecure PS3 fanboyism sleep better tonight.

I can't wait to play this game.

I just can't get past the genericness of it. It's so brown, dull, with ridiculous characters and boring gunplay.

This. All the way.

Posted by drangel_jam

Giant Bomb got exposed on the GT review. Go to gametrailers.com and check the GoW3 review, skip to 3:20 Bloodworth kills GiantBombing. Made me lol

Anyway, great game, I have it pre-ordered for months now, and fully paid, so I'm just checking reviews for fun, although sometimes I have to skip a lines of spoilers, or mute the video, and/or look aways during certain pre-rendered scenes.

wow. Gears 2 made me lose all interest in this series and as a result i never finished it. but now i'm thinking i should give Gears 3 a chance... hhmmm....

Posted by Neozurg

I'm sorry if people like what some of you hate. Reading through some of the comments, like how you don't understand why people like Gears, yet proceeding to bash it, calling it dull, repetitve and games for mindless gamers. It just shows you aren't willing to understand or let it go that gamers have fun with this. Was the point of telling people that "I don't get it" as way to reaffirm your dislike? Make you feel better than the people who like Gears? Or are you trying to get people to your cause? Don't like it? Then don't play it. Don't ruin on other people's parade.

Posted by Fei

I don't understand how people can like Tetris or Pacman. You do the same repetitive actions in dull environments over and over. BORING. MEDIOCRE.

Awesome review Jeff! Video review on it's way?

The 360 has exclusives? Nobody told me! ;)

Posted by craigieh28

Very excited for this, and this is coming from someone with only a lukewarm interest in the franchise - the fanboys must be creaming themselves right now!

That's where you unlock Aaron Griffin the easy way. In a facebook thing from Epic.

Posted by MetalMoog

Looks like it's chock full of content. Tons of different co-op and competitive options. Thought Gears 2 was a big step up from Gears 1. Hope this makes that same big step.

Posted by pornstorestiffi

Good review, but i will still be skipping it.

Posted by James_ex_machina

GoW never clicked with me. The story and games looks great though. Someday I'll force myself to finish GoW 1

Edited by Chris2KLee

Hmmm, was gonna hold off but that Horde mode looks pretty sweet.

Posted by Godlyawesomeguy

This is a game I'll buy when it hits 40$ or so.

Posted by MachoFantastico

glad to see a story wrapped up in videogames, happens so rarely and rarely is it good. Gears of War 3 looks even better then GoW2? Currently playing GoW2 again and forgot how great that game looks, one of the best on the system. Gears of Wars is the only XBOX 360 exclusive I care about now so excited to play on tuesday.

The Halo franchise died with Halo 3 for me.

Posted by fixmeatoastertart

Ice-T is in a video game... Well, I didn't care at first, but now I kind of do care.

Posted by itsJoNada

cannot wait...

Posted by Kamizzle

Wasn't really going for this one until I saw the Quick look, now I'm all hyped up and reframing my Marcus portait!

Ordered in Asia because the box looks awesome :D

Gears is one of those franchises, I feel like I should like because everyone else does. All of my friends love Gears multiplayer, and it is the only mp they play consistently. Yet, everytime I play a Gears game, I feel bored. Can't explain it.

That's exactly how I feel about the Assassin's Creed franchise.

im do glad this game is as awesme as i was hoping it would be

dedicated servers my ass

Posted by Superfriend

Yeah MP stuff is pretty cool and I really like the new Horde-mode.. but something about the campaign wasn´t right. It was too easy even on Hardcore. In GoW 1&2 the Boomer (and other big enemies) were actually scary because they could kill you easily. In this one you just go down and WILL be revived by your teammates in a matter of seconds. Way too easy. This literally made the campaign worse for me. Almost no fucking challenge the first time through. I blame focus testing and whiny reviewers.

Posted by Xsheps

@Superfriend: Not sure I'm going to pick it up then. I really only like the campaign in Gears, never got into the multiplayer. The new Batman and Assassins games will probably have more challenging campaigns.

Posted by Goodfeelings

In beta, I looked at the multiplayer as an aside to games like Halo and Call of Duty. I hated it.

Now that I have the game, I look at it as a game mostly consisting of close quarters shotgun battles with the occasional rifle play. I love it.

It's still not that easy. They HAD to allow AI to revive you in Hardcore because there's so many things that would otherwise be an insta-kill, like Gunker globs or boomshot turrets. Game would have been Demon's Souls level if not for that.

Seriously, I fucking hate Gunkers. The second act of the first half is fuckin' full of them.

I was never a Gears of War fan honestly. I played some of Gears 1 and 2 and never got into it. I thought I knew what to expect with Gears 3 but I was way wrong! I LOVE THIS GAME!!!! Everything about it blew my freaking mind. At the end of the game as the credits popped up, my breath was literally taken away. I was amazed at how awesome this game was and definately recommend it to anyone who like me wasn't a big Gears fan to begin with. This game will totally change your mind. Definately my game of the year! Gears of War 3 is amazing! Loved it, loved it, loved it <3<3
