My opinion is a tainted biased opinion, but Gears 3 is sheer awesomeness. There were so many improvements. I was a big fan of the first Gears, then the second one was so rushed that it bombed as far as game play and glitches. They tried to implement the ranking system and it failed, countless glitches and the controls were (as the kids say) wonky and never smooth. Everytime I used my chainsaw, my guy would step back. I grew a bitter dislike for Gears 2, especially the boss fight at the end which was no challenge (EVEN on insane difficulty). The storyline on 1 and 2 were great though.
Now about 3. It was supposed to be released in April and got bumped back, of course I was upset initially, but very grateful now. Then the Beta came out and I played that for about a month and a half, great but still kinda glitchy, not smooth play at all. But now...
I really enjoy this game because the game controls play very smoothly for me, I can get my chainsaw out in quick fashion, there are so many modes of gameplay. You can be the Good guys and fight waves of enemies with 4 other friends in Horde mode or team up with your friends and play as the monsters attacking the good guys in Beast mode, even the campaign has 4 player capabilities. And leveling up is FAIR to those who play online and for those who do not. You can now gain experience and level your stats in ANY MODE OF THE GAME, even in campaign! There are plenty of perks, skins, characters, medals and ribbons to be earned and I'll have to wait until the end of my storyline to say how good/bad the final boss fight is. Gears 1 had the best final fight in a game for me, RAAM on Insane is impossible.
The only complaint I have about Gears 3 is (wait, there's two) that I have only gone on 5 hours sleep in the last 3 days, lol, and I have Dead Island in which I really enjoy and it's collecting dust for awhile until I can pull myself apart from Gears.
PS- I WILL get at least 8 hours of sleep today in about 2 hours.... I hope.
Another PS- Hit me up LOBO for some Dead Island if you want, I'm using the melee guy right now.
