In 2006 the world was introduced to Gears of War, a game that changed the way many shooters are played today. Seamlessly blending third person duck-and-cover mechanics with the incredible power of the Unreal Engine, Gears of War quickly became a fan favorite for 360 owners. Two years later, Epic Games released Gears of War 2, which took everything the critics loved about its predecessor and expanded on it. Since then, the series has grown and extended its reach into other media such as novels, comic books, and even a board game. Last week, Gears of War 3 was released to the public. Despite having a darker tone in the story, an upgraded graphics engine, and many changes to the critically-acclaimed multiplayer, does the final installment in the Gears of War trilogy end with a bang or a whimper?
