This is what we come here for. Great game. As long as the season pass backs itself up and the content keeps rolling we have a great game and a lot of fun.

Don't Buy Season Pass

Please save your money. The 2 only things they really give you with season pass are 2 weeks early access with maps then everyone can get them and a gear pack once a week. So just get the regular game and save your cash.

Microsoft Stole From Everyone

I purchased this to get the GofW collection that came with the "Ultimate Edition" and they never delivered the codes. As well, they deleted my last 1 Star review I left a couple months ago. How are they getting away with this? Someone sue them, please!

DLC = OLD MAPS, NO NEW ACHIEVEMENTS

GEARS1 is why i picked up my 360 nearly a decade ago. Preordered this Digital Copy from the XB1 Store for $100, months before release. First off, I NEVER buy digital copies of ANYTHING (unless it's the only way to get it, or has a nice discount through Gold/sales), for MANY reasons (no returns, can't trade/sell them, can't bring it to a friend's house and just pop it in, can't let friends borrow it without giving them your account info, etc.). Secondly, preordering any game (or buying it within 2 weeks of release) thru AMAZON PRIME gives you a GUARANTEED 20% OFF THE RETAIL PRICE, *AND* street date delivery guaranteed (and many more perks as well), so there goes that $20+, any hope of returning/trading/selling this, no awesome collectors STEELBOOK case, & too many other things to list. Gears DLC (like 99% of games with DLC) used to add NEW ACHIEVEMENTS; but NOT THIS ONE! The monthy 2 "New Maps" are OLD MAPS; & 2 of them so far ARE THE SAME MAP; ONE WITH A LITTLE FOG ADDED! #HugeRegret

GEARS IS BACK

By far a great way to bring Gears back. Love the story and new characters. Its great having old favorites return even if some are just for a few minutes. Great gameplay and visuals just how Gears should be. The Coalition did an amazing job

UNFINISHED PRODUCT

Big gears fan from day one. loved 1-3 gears and wish to god judgement never happened. PROS- Love the future of old gears and where are they now? love new weapons. love new ways to kill someone execution style. love original voice actors. love the ranking system how its base off your skills. Cons- Half campaign you run away instead of fighting and other half you're chasing after Marcus. Theres a lot of unanswered questions in this game they set up for gears 5. This game was a introduction for characters instead of continuing after gears 3. Campaign was short and boring. If I wanted to kill robots 40% of the game, I buy Bionary Domain. Great game by the way. Graphics was worse then gears 3. Enemies Swarm was a terrible design. Looked like they belong in resident evil games. Multiplayer a joke YouTube bl4ck. Gnasher brokeen. Host advantage. no dedicated servers. lag big time. 99% you play as swarm

Gallivant Phase

Platform: Xbox

Needs more....

Too much focus is on micro transactions, takes away from the game as a whole. No exclusive weapon/character unlocks for re-ups like past gears. Damage is already done, the game is lacking in the core areas that made gears great. Diversity is needed, multiplayer has become the focus.

GREAT GAME

READ SEASON PASS DESCRIPTION BEFORE GETTING MAD ABOUT WHAT YOU GET. Great deal, good story, most finished Horde yet, PvP is fun. Love the Card system "IDEA" BUT, I HATE Micro-transactions, BUT It's ALL Available to Buy w/ in Game earned Credits also (it's all just cosmetic & horde skills) The Ultimate edition will get u quite a few packs to open before doing anything! GREAT BUY, LOADS OF FUN (Gears player since 2006)

Campaign is good, but multiplayer is P.T.W. bs.

The campaign is fun but somewhat lacking and the "pay to win" multiplayer bs is going to destroy this game. I already paid about $80 or so for the entire game and now you want to charge me more? Screw you, M$! Also, cross-play between xbox and PC is a must for this game, but of course they stupidly did not include it. I wish I had waited and got this much cheaper bc it is not worth what I paid for it.
