If you want the classic GNOME look, you need to install gnome-session-fallback. If you want the GNOME 3.x look, you need to install gnome-shell.

Note however, all of the same applets are not available for the 3.x version of gnome-panel, and you may have had some added to your panels which are no longer available.

I install gnome 3 with sudo apt-get install gnome-core – Andrew Jul 23 '12 at 14:16
@Andrew The gnome-core package was a GNOME 1.x package, and was meant to be a transition package when it went away in GNOME 2.x. I'm not sure why the package is still around as a meta/transition package, but you probably shouldn't use it exactly. – dobey Jul 23 '12 at 15:31
