Gears of War 3 Release

There are few games in this world that make fans celebrate countdown parties. In the past, milestones like Halo 3 or World of Warcraft were needed, just to name a few. Now Gears of War 3 is at the ready to finish the chronicles of Marcus Fenix.

About 479 GAME and GameStation stores have promised to open up in the UK for midnight, with 20,000 shops worldwide opening its doors for tonight.

Finished Dead Island already? Trade it for Gears of War 3 

HMV offers to you to trade in UK's current number one title Dead Island for Gears of War 3 for a surcharge of £1.99. Not to be outdone, GAME will also sell you Gears of War 3 for £4.99, which let’s be honest, HMV’s offer outdoes GAME by £3, when you trade-in Dead Island, Driver: San Francisco or Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine.

Gears of War 3 Reviews

Official Xbox Magazine: 10/10
“Quite simply, Gears of War 3 leaves no stone unturned – it’s everything a triple-A blockbuster should be.”

Guardian: 5/5
“Committed gamers know what to expect from the Gears Of War franchise, and Gears Of War 3 will tick all of their boxes. Chainsaw bayonets and blood spatters: tick. Hulking space marines: tick. Chest-high walls and new and interesting ways to blast the Locust troops: tick.”

Digital Spy: 5/5
“…it’s the great bump in visual quality, the diverse and engaging campaign that never lets up, and a universe that finally catches your interest that impresses the most.”

Joystiq: 5/5
“Between the pacing and the attention to detail visually, auditorially, and narratively, it’s also the best campaign Epic’s ever done, and one of the most exciting, consistent campaign experiences on the Xbox 360, or any other system for that matter.”

Giant Bomb: 5/5
“The members of Delta Squad have finally found some closure, and, for all of the derisive things the world lobs at Gears’ totally-broed-out motif, the story even manages to be touching on multiple occasions. It’s a joy to play, and the game’s expanded set of multiplayer options will give you plenty of things to keep you busy for a good, long time. Oh, and Ice-T’s pretty great in it, too.”

Game Informer: 9.5/10
“This is the best execution yet of an idea that spawned one of the biggest modern franchises in all of gaming. What’s not to love?”

GameSpot: 9.5/10
“Even if you don’t remember where you were on Emergence Day, this is one adventure you won’t soon forget.”


  1. Can't wait to play but i gotta go pick it up first :(

  2. This kinda makes me want to go through Gears of War 2, even if it's on my own. This really has been highly anticipated, hope it doesn't disappoint.

  3. Seen the horrendously badly played yogscast Let's Play of it... just looks like a Gears of War 2 expansion pack, to be honest. Haven't seen the whole game yet though.

  4. Wow, didn't even know this came out. I'm late.

  5. Triple blockbuster, eh? better live up to its billing!

  6. I think the reviewers are kissing it's ass. In my opinion this game is not going to be so amazing. They just funded their marketing better so you'd believe.

  7. Well, just hope that it doesn't end up like Fable 2, over-anticipated and didn't fulfill the fans requierements!

  8. sounds like an awesome game, didnt play it before (:

  9. Looks like a superb title... I wonder why I haven't played any of these yet...

  10. I don't think i've ever seen a game with such high rankings. I'm playing this one, no doubt. I loved GoW 1 and 2. This should be even better.

  11. Oh god I need to play the first two yet. D:

  12. Should be good. I liked the other games!

  13. This game seems very interesting. Been seeing the commercials for a while, have yet to play the others though.

  14. This game gonna be epic! I´ll definetly test this out!


  15. i've already got it and will start playing this weekend.
    it will be awesome.

  16. I'm a little bit scared. There's just so much hype... will the game be good enough to justify it? Or will it pull a Duke Nukem on me?
