Am I the Only One? *SPOILERS*

Am I the only one who thinks the campaign is WAY too short seeing as this is the last Gears? I found the length of the game kind of disapointing.

and also, what was up with Carmine only being in like 2 parts of the game? Is that EPIC's way of letting him live by leaving him out of the majority of the game so he wouldn't die? I personally found that disappointing too...

but besides that, I loved the game, I'm sure I'll be playing Horde, Beast and Versus for a while, so at least that makes up for the story line not being as long as I would have liked it to have been

I think if it was any longer it would have dragged on in certain parts.

I think it got pretty boring in spots and they could have cut stuff from it. I dont want to give anything away but the sub part to me was a waste, the fire extingisher part was stupid. In the campaign it didnt seem like they changed alot from the last one.

I thought it was a perfect length, but another hour or two then it would have definitely started to drag out.

Yeah, the story is stupid. Carmine lives and Dom dies.
Pretty weak ending for a trilogy.

It got a bit slow and meh at some parts, but it had quite a few nice moments to counterbalance those.

For most of it I was left wondering if Carmine survived. It's like Epic didn't want him at all. However, his grand return was badass

The thing about Carmine is probably to left us wondering if he's alive or not. They really wanted to scare us a few times. "Hey Carmine, watch out!" and the scene at Anvil Gate where a regular Gear gets his arm ripped off and you never know if it's Carmine or not, and then in the end when his raven gets downed etc.

Yeh I reckon they'll do a prequel aswell maybe during either the Pendulum wars or E-day (as I wrote this I realised that would be like what Reach was to Halo)

I thought the campaign would have been a little longer. The second one felt longer to me. A few minor loose ends and one or two larger ones not tied up but overall it was an enjoyable campaign.

Having played through both the Gears 1 & Gears 2 campaign in the past couple of months, I have to disagree. In terms of campaign length?

Gears 3 > Gears 2 > Gears 1

well I wish that at least the final cutscene would have been a little longer...I mean all the locust are gone (at least thats what we know so far) so you would think that EPIC would show you what everyone went on to do in their life since theres no reason for war anymore...but MAYBE thats just a hint towards another game

i couldn't agree more. Do you really want it to be LONGER?!?! The game was a solid 8 or 9 hours on Casual. I felt as it was, the game dragged on a lot and there were too many f*cking fetch quests.

To summarise my thoughts:
Acts 1 + 2 felt boring and too long, minus the riding the gas balloon level.
Act 3 was Brilliant!
Act 4 started off brilliantly, but got boring when you had to run around collecting sub parts. I enjoyed the sub rail shooting though
Act 5 was good, but also felt like the whole 'turning off the hurricane' dragged on a bit more than necessary.

Did anyone get sick of taking the back seat and actually want to drive something? I thought that was like a gears legacy(transport gears 1, brumak and co gears 2) it's all manning the turrets and they were the suckiest parts.

A raven would have been sweet is all I'm sayin.

I felt like a lot of the game was wasted completing tasks and fetching items.

Completely agree. Me and a buddy in the past 2 weeks did a "catch up" on the series. We ran 1 in about 2 1/2 hours and 2 in about 4-5. Not sure how long a "run through" of 3 will be, but I think we did our first run in about 8hrs or so. Quite a bit of that was searching for collectables and just admiring the awesomeness of the game/graphics.
