Fiery Rat

Platform: Xbox

in proper HDR Gears is nothing less than revolutionary

Gears is absolutely astonishing to play in HDR, in fact it's a new way of seeing, but you really need the right equipment. My panasonic dx900 is the best lcd on the market, with 1250 nit peak brightness, over 500 local dimming zones, proper rec. 2020 wide colour gamut, displayed on a 10 bit panel. The EFTO setting must be ST.8024 and the YCbCr range, full. As you can see, there are a lot of new elements that need to come together! Gears 4 is a landmark title that points to the future but can be fully experienced now only on high end equipment. PM me if you need useful information

Left the end of the story for DLC

Really? With that ending, you are leaving the actual ending for the game as DLC which is an extra purchase? Otherwise, the game is fantastic, runs perfectly and the integrating with xbox account is fantastic. But please don't leave the ending of the story to DLC. Very distasteful.




Platform: PC of the best PC ports!

Ok, I had a few issues downloading at first. I thought progress reset from 20gb to zero but it didn't just the "counter" reset so it wasn't as bad as I first thought and it did resume from 20gb. But wow, is it worth the download, beautiful game that runs like silk! Fantastic job, so many options and the best benchmarking tool. Lets you know impact on any option you change which is really helpful. Fantastic game, that looks and runs superb!!!

Gears of Wars 4 is an amazing game!

The narrative of JD Fenix, Kait and Del are thrown into a war against a new enemy. Where they must save their loved ones from doom. I love the addition of the Windflare; sadly they had not put heavy reliance on it; it has made it quite fresh; and is a such a pity there wasn't more.

For those with problems...

To fix preload problems, don't bother with the wsreset or the troubleshooter...The EASY fix is, close and reopen the store app, SEARCH for Gears of War 4, click on it, then click on the install/download button...DO NOT try and download from the 'My Library' section!! Five stars because I saw the trailer, bought the edition below collector's and preloaded easily, once I found the fix!
