    Five new maps and new level system. Fenix Rising has interesting content for the online modes, but its too poor with other extras with only some skins for guns and four new characters.

    A worthy add on only for those who play Gears of War 3 and are in desperate need of some new online content. It's really a nice DLC for all the Gears Lovers.

    The five maps of this DLC pack are perfectly designed to give players a lot of fun and lots of different experiences throughout all game modes. Skins and ReUP feature gives that special touch that made Fenix Rising a must buy.

    The new experience system, along with 5 new maps and additional weapon skins, will surely satisfy hardcore fans, but if you're not among them you should consider keeping your money for something else.

    The maps are fun, if not a bit unbalanced, and the multiplayer skins are superb. The only complaint I had with it was that two of the four skins were just pre-order skins, rather than actual new and interesting additions. Full Review »

    The maps are fun and are free to anyone who was smart enough to pick up the season pass. The only thing that sucks is there's no telling when they will go into public rotation. Full Review »

    A good map pack for all game types but the lack of players online really hurts the gaming experience. Spent the majority of my game time just looking for a match and good luck trying to play more then a few rounds of the new horde maps before people start dropping out. Full Review »
