I really liked all three of them, but have to watch War again. I think it's on par with the second one and above the first one (which was decent too).
In any case these are masterpieces of B-Movie filmmaking; only the original was better. Who would have thought that they would be able to upgrade the lesser chapter of the Apes Saga and make something remotely deep out of it? Great artistic work instead of the formulaic dumbing down for the masses. Matt Reeve rules!

Second best of the new trilogy. I really liked that they went for the slow burn approach that they wanted it to resonate longer than a typically popcorn film. Some really interesting character arcs here.
Alright kid, listen up: this fry is your unviverse: it's soggy, it's weird, it's gross. And this delicious, normal fry is my universe.

Very hard to say which is the best in the new trilogy - all excellent.
One thing I was glad about was War not being a repeat the storyline a lot of people wanted - i.e. an Apes Vs Humans battle. We had that in Dawn, and despite being uneasy after seeing the trailers, it was a nice surprise to find it did it's own thing, i.e. the story of Caeser battling against his own demon, in the shape of a need to chase vengeance...
I just finished it a few hours ago. It's pretty good; undecided whether it's a 7 or 8 in my book. I'll confess it wasn't what I expected. Something bigger and grander in scale. The character development and conflict with Harrelson's villain was great. But I was bored in parts.
