as good as Gears 1 and 2. I've tried and tried to get into it and i just can't. The new guns and other weapons just don't work imo. It changes the feel and makes the game way too easy and so much less competitive. In the first 2 games you couldn't just pick up a gun and get easy kills, that is what seperated it from everything else. Why change the final game so much? Nobody was complaining saying "hey give us new guns to make the game easier". They were complaining about lag and host advantage and they fixed that for the most part, but they went to far with trying to fix other things that werent broken out of pure greed.
I'm gonna end my little rant with that because i know its not gonna change anything and i'm sure nobody cares (especially Epic), but after all the time i put into the first 2 games, especially the 2nd i feel like i have the right to complain. I played Gears 2 from the day it came out until this 3rd game was released with only a few breaks here and there to play other games. Basically the only thing keeping me into video games was this franchise, so i'm gonna give a few other games a chance and see what happens....it's sad to say, but my gaming days are probably coming to an end.
Good luck and have fun to all the people that actually do enjoy this game.
