This is one of the best third person shooter action titles that I have ever played. The story arc comes to a fulfilling conclusion to the story, and the gameplay is very butery smooth and polished. The main campaign is great, and so is the co-op and multi player suit of modes. All around great shooter.

Rather than the perfect end to a thrilling series, it seemed like the developers were afraid to take real risks with either the story or the gameplay of Gears 3.

Gears of War 3 is a solid game and likely worthy of the praise it's received. I just happen to think it falls a bit flat.

Right now, it doesn't get any better. [Issue#77, p.78]

Worthy series climax comes with a perfect story and offers lots more thanks to the pack of multiplayer modes. Marcus Fenix says good-bye with style. [Oct 2011]

The single player campaign finishes up the story nicely and there's a ton of replay value in mutiplayer mode. I'm in love with the new Beast mode and still thoroughly enjoy Horde mode with the new additions. Not much has changed up from the previous two games though in terms of gameplay and presentation, but it's still a fun game.

A gentler Gears, but all the more entertaining for it. And the co-op play will be hard to beat. [Dec 2011, p.76]

Horde 2.0 is the best multiplayer experience going right now, and Beast Mode isn't far behind.

Gears of War 3 is a bit thin in the story department, but it's a great shooter nonetheless.
