    It's not your standard X-Title but the X-Force titles have long now not been standard X-Men tales. Yes, mutants are the focus but these are always of a more violent nature and so far this one looks to be trying to fill those shoes with some interesting new twists. Read Full Review

    Following The Nerd - Christopher Williams Mar 29, 2013

    Overall this is a great book so far with an interesting story to tell and some great art. If you were a fan of Remender's run, rest easy in the fact that Humphries is proving to be more than up to the task. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - Kyle Mc Mar 27, 2013

    This is a very action focused series but at the same I wouldnt give it the label fight book and the negative connotations that come with that especially since the art as whole comes across beautifully whether its the way Garney draws a roaring Bishop to the great colours that have been the most standout aspect of the series to this point. Whether its the decision to go grey in the panels except for small sections of purple is great. Even when towards the conclusion where they swap it around and the majority of the two page spread is red it works in the same way. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Mar 27, 2013

    With each new incarnation of X-Force, the writers manage to make us get over how much we loved the previous series. Sam Humphries is carving out a nice little corner of the X-universe for himself and Ron Garney is doing a great job in establishing the look of it all. We're still waiting on answers about Bishop but we are seeing more pieces of the puzzle. If you've ever been concerned about not being able to keep up with the multitude of X-titles, UNCANNY X-FORCE is a book you can easily slide into. The action is heating up with each issue and there's no telling what's coming in the next. Read Full Review

    Uncanny X-Force #3 completely redeems itself from the last issue, balancing characterization with action. The two aspects aren't done in a one or the other kind of way, but are actually intertwined to help eliminate ups and downs. The series is headed down the right track, finding its footing after a rocky second issue. With the outstanding art team and a great writer at the helm, we could see something really special out of this series after all. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Stephen Mitchell Mar 31, 2013

    There are a lot of characters in this book and it's pretty good at giving you a snapshot of who they are and why certain things may or may not bother them. That being said, the distracting side plot seems out of place and I'm not entirely sure what Storm and Puck are doing there. They seem like dead weight because the book is driven by Psylocke and she doesn't much listen to their opinions. Overall it's a good read but it's probably not for everyone. If you're a fan of Psylocke, it's a must have otherwise you may just want to wait until you can borrow a copy or the digital version drops in price. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Mar 27, 2013

    Ron Garney continues to do strong work here, although I get the impression he's starting to get strapped for time. A lot more empty space rears its head with unfinished looking panels here and there. That said the psychedelic mind stuff at the end is super cool. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Ryan K. Lindsay Mar 27, 2013

    "Uncanny X-Force" #3 is another solid issue in this new run. Humphries and Garney make a great pairing to bring some very hard hitting mutants and battles to life. This book is building enough of a warped base that cool tales can be told for some time. Some of the characters might not be perfectly utilized, but this is still a very fun comic. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Marcell Mar 27, 2013

    Uncanny X-Force #3 is a step-up from it's predecessors and the book has certainly gained more footing with this issue. Nice brisk pace, limited but still fast paced action and great art, make this issue worth checking out. Things are starting to come together as we start to learn what happened to Bishop & why he wants Ginny. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joshua Yehl Mar 27, 2013

    With the plot in a bad spot, the art does little to help it out. There's so much back-and-forth talking that artist Ron Garney is never given a real chance to shine. Worse, the big cliffhanger image on the last page is so similar to the previous issue's that Garney is again robbed of the chance to do something new and exciting. For a book that started off on solid ground, it suddenly finds itself knee deep in quicksand. Humphries and Garney are talented guys, so here's hoping they grab a vine (that is not a snake) and pull themselves out. Read Full Review
