This is a beautifully-crafted 300+ page guide covering everything you need to know to play Gears of War 3. It has a hardback cover, and the silvery cog/skull/lancer art shines and reflects light when the book is held at certain angles. The logo extends across the spine to the back cover as well. The whole guide has gorgeous artwork throughout.

The book has an introduction to the main characters, weapons guide, enemy guide, campaign walkthrough with plenty of screenshots, multiplayer guide covering all modes, and multiplayer map breakdown. Some of the multiplayer tips are very useful, although Gears veterans will know most of it already. There is also an extensive appendix which covers all the game's unlockables, including collectibles, ribbons, medals, mutators, weapon skins, executions, characters, achievements, and avatar awards. There's even a list of the purchasable weapon skins.

The bonus content is very nice. There is a code to download a strategy video from Xbox Live Marketplace which covers act 1 of the campaign. You also get access to digital versions of the Gears of War and Gears of War 2 Bradygames guides, which are both huge. There is a nice 12-page preview of the Gears of War comic. I'm not even into comics, but I might have to check the Gears comics out after seeing this preview. There is also a physical soundtrack sampler CD, but I haven't listened to it yet.

Overall, this is an awesome guide. If you want help with the game, or you're just a fan who enjoys all things Gears, it is a worthy addition to your collection.

The Gears of War 3 strategy guide is a must have for anyone who is seriously passionate about the series. I have been playing the franchise since its release in 2006 and I find that this guide has given me new perspective on the game itself. The guide has a complete creature compendium, campaign/arcade walkthrough, overhead maps for campaign and multiplayer modes, breakdowns on different approaches to combat and even some tips that might not have been thought of when playing. The people who are familiar with the series will know a lot of the multiplayer strategies, but this will help a lot of beginner and intermediate players step up their game.

Very good buy for the money, would recommend to anyone who wishes to add another Gears related item to their collection. Bradygames did an excellent job on this guide. Very thorough.

I've always been obsessive about knowing the in and outs of a game so I'd be sure not to miss anything. Since I was younger, Bradsgames has always been the go to company for organized, detailed and visually appealing guides.

This guide does not deviate from the standard. The outer feel of the hardback is a nice satin feel and as always Bradsgames provides all the needed information in a great manner.

First off.... Amazon.. you keep me coming back for more, great job, great buy !

Wow, I don't know why I waited so long to buy it, should of bought it the same day as I bought the System..
I know you already have ton's of info on the book so I won't bore you w/the details ..lol.. but here's my review,
H.B., White & platinum, wished it would of matched the Game colors., so any ways you know what it has, but not the
contents thats inside, 317pgs of pure awesome-ness, sorry, like all my other reviews I won't tell the contents of each
page or any major details, you gotta buy it, but I'll tell you it does give you all you'll need plus some for the game, its
well written, these books are getting better by BradyGames, they keep improving and adding things that enhancing
the guild's they make.
Oh.. at the end of the book you'll get a built in comic book "Special sneak preview of issue #19" & a disk, yes a disk
not a down load, for the sound track, its only a sampler tho, but worth the added content of the hole book IMO.
The only reason I gave this a 4.75 Stars and not 5 Stars, the book arrived a bit dinged up and a few small dents & one
crease along the bottom edge corner, so I'm giving it a 4.75, this does not reflect on my review of the book, witch I feel
is a 5 Star book, if I can find another one in mint shape, I might keep it in its plastic, for the shelf.

The campaign guide is all on point and even gives extra advice for playing on Hardcore levels... The reason I got this guide was for the multi-player strategy section which had lots of advice on tactics as well as some need to know locations for controlling a map. Overall a decent guide.

Quality 4 out of 5

Brady makes very good guides; I would say the best in the business. It appears that the quality of the Gears series has gone down over the years. Gears of war 1 limited edition guide, while paper back, game with a very nice (100+) page art book. This book not only included drawings but inside details about the game design and characters. Then with the Gears 2 limited edition they moved to hardback style; while the extra artwork is present nowhere near what came with the first title. This guide is similar to the second book, but seems to have even less artwork than previous editions.
This new edition does include digital copies of the (standard) edition guides for both Gears 1 and 2

Soundtrack 2 out of 5

When I seen this text came with a soundtrack sampler I was excited. I was hoping for newer version of "Devil Dogs" and maybe some tracks from Ice T; but sadly it is only 45 sec cuts of orchestra music. Does this really need a sampler? I did not take points away from the guide because some fans may enjoy this.

Information 4 out of 5

My one real issue is with the information provided. While most of it is great there are a few issues. The biggest is the fact that the book was printed when Gears was to be released in Apr of this year. So when you look in the achievement section it discusses how you can gain new weapon skins by playing online during certain weeks. Problem is these weeks are in Apr and May and are long gone; there is no announcement if Epic will still hold these promotions.

Overall

This is a nice guide, and makes finding those few collectables you missed much easier. With the edition of the previous guides this makes a great starting point for those just entering the gears universe.
