Love it so far .

Played mostly multiplayer and campaign up to second Act so far doesn't disappoint. Story is refreshing comparing to previous games in the series and multiplayer balance seems like its just where it needs to be . Gameplay is fluid & engaging . The Game runs great on ultra settings 1440k powered by founders edit non overcloacked 1080 most of the time 70+ fps with some strange lags like once an hour during multiplayer gameplay which might be caused by connection issues.

Issues downloading

Warning for Low speed connections, it took me a few attempts to download this either because it would bomb out or I would need to pause it and progress was lost. I eventually got it on the 5th try but was not a good experience and did tarnish my enjoyment of the game. This would not have been too back if the store did not randomly kill\delete\start again the current download when the connection was interrupted. The game itself I have had little time to play for obvious reasons however it seems like your standard GoW game we have come to expect. Once I get to play it for more than a few minutes I will update my review with a better review than "looks good 'nuff"

Crashes on startup

The game will not open for me. I'm presented with a splash screen, and the game subsequently crashes. No support available and I cannot play at all. Really unacceptable given the $139 price tag.

Platform: Xbox

Campaign awesome, horde awesome, everything is awesome

Works great at UHD, superb graphics and sound. I've always liked the gameplay style, and this is a really good evolution of the original. It's nice how the previous chars are introduced and usher in a new generation of gears heros. Game of the year for me.
