Looks like it's getting pretty good reviews.

I think it will settle at a 89-91 on Metacritic.

I honestly wouldn't ever imagine Gears to fall below Metacritic's "AAA" status but with reviewers being a little more reserved with just throwing around high 9s and 10s of late, it's become the norm.

Glad I preordered it for 40 bucks during the e3 conference promo best buy sale.



Really awesome reviews. I knew it wouldn't score less than 90.



92 Meta at the moment, could be +- 1.

Gamereactor Sweden gave it 9/10 and second opinion was 8/10

Also, someone asked about the graphics of the game and they claim it's the best looking game on the XBOX 360, but (and i quote) "PlayStation 3 has three games that look better than it".

Thinking back on the Top 10 graphic list by GR, its safe to say those games are (in following order):
Uncharted 2, Killzone 3 and God of War 3.

------------------
Can't even imagine the graphics on Uncharted 3...
Anyway my point is:

Gears of War 3 is the best looking game on the 360! Selnor get your ass in here :D.

Great reviews!

Gears of War 1 -> 94 Meta
Gears of War 2 -> 93 Meta
Gears of War 3 -> 92 Meta (So far)

Yeah, no reviews call it the best looking on consoles, but I didn't think they would anyway. Not saying it isn't worthy, just not quite on the same level, potentially, as stuff like Killzone 3, RAGE, Uncharted 3, or Battlefield 3.

From what I played of the beta, there was no question it was the best looking game on the platform, however.



                                                                                                             

94 is gonna be really tough for Gears 3 to match, it might even fall below Gears 2 in terms of ratings.

No mixed or negative reviews yet at least, everything is positive.



It's just that simple.

it doesn't matter if it falls below or above gears 2. Gears 3 is a lot better than Gears 2, gears 2 was a disappointment in the long run MP wise.

Okay. I've gone all of these months without looking at any GeoW3 footage and suddenly, I'm looking at this stuff left and right. Gotta stop, now. Gotta stop or I'm going to ruin the story for myself. I will say that the Gamespot video review is incredible. Fucking incredible.

But we already all knew it would be incredible anyways
