If you’ve been holding your a breath for my Gears of War 3 review, you can exhale. No, this isn’t it and no, I’m not close to having one ready. Though my progress through the game was stilted by my practice for T12: Toronto Fighting Game Championships, I’ve now got some time to make progress.
I’m part way through Act 3 in the campaign mode, and so far, it’s great. The shooting is as solid as you’d expect it to be, while the story at the beginning is a lot stronger than any Gears of War segments to date.
With a ton of reviews out already, the lineage of the series to date and the millions its sold already, it’s no surprise that this game is good. I wouldn’t be surprised if most of you readers were deeper into the game than I was. In any case, if you’re looking for a more detailed point-of-view from me, give me some more time to play through it in full.
