Gears of War 3 review

Reviewed October 08, 2011

Mike Suskie says: "Weíve cared so little for these characters, their conflict or the world they inhabit that years from now, when the next big shooter craze arrives and Gears finally becomes obsolete, I canít help wondering if weíll look back on this trilogy with a collective shrug. Gears 3 is simply a great shooter, and for now, thatís enough. I love great shooters almost as much as I hate missed opportunities."
