I suppose it’s not really a question of whether or not Gears of War 3 was going to be a great game. Sure, it could have been an absolute flop, but, realistically speaking, that was quite unlikely (especially when you factor in the success of the multiplayer beta). The real surprise, to me, came in how unexpected the plot lines played out. Nothing occurred in the way that I had expected (bravo to the guys at Epic for that), and the action flowed in intense waves. My only, minor, issue was with the high frequency of cutscenes within each chapter.

Verdict: Buy It
