Simply Awesome

Not play Anywhere.. its only downpoint so i had to buy on PC and Xbox One. However, the game is fantastic and is an improvement on the PC version with GFWL. New visuals are nicely done and the game feels nicely optimised so it runs very fast on rig. Now MS, how about bringing Gears 2 and 3 to Windows 10?

NEEDS MORE PLAYERS!

The game had a rocky release initially and literally no marketing at all so it's not surprising that the online matchmaking system has a hard time grouping people together. Have 0 issues playing the game anymore except the lack of online population. Great game, Great port, MORE PEOPLE SHOULD BUY AND PLAY!

The game doesn't support G-Sync monitors

The game was lagging for ages and I didn't know what was wrong, I read something online which said to turn off Nvidia G-Sync and I did that and the game works perfectly now!

Works seamlessly!

To cap a few comments, to put GOW on a different hard drive, system-storage-new apps save to. Works perfectly with a 360 controller, and my 780m graphics card works well without tearing! An awesome update on the old game, hope the new ones take the same thread :)

Its GOW

DOES NOT REQUIRE GOLD TO PLAY ONLINE!!!! Looks good, runs smooth with some major hickups in parts... constantly crashes on a i7 6700k amd r9 390x setup.. One thing, nto that it will ever get done because money in the bank ******* time right, but what made gars 1 so good was the fact you didn't do matchmaking you created your own lobby or joined one from a list, as the multiplayers dead in the water i suggest bringing this feature back, matchmaking is bad, I hate it, its destroyed the game before it even took off. custom games were the best thing about gears 1, hell the multiplayer in this game is the best out of all the gears series, BRING BACK CUSTOM LOBBIES SAVE GEARS UE.

Runs brilliantly

Really surprised to how well it runs considering all the bad reviews. Took ages to download, but my internet is slow, so that's ok, nothing to do with the game. I have everything on max, and it's running at 60 fps easy peasy. Very happy with the purchase, definitely worth the money, in fact it's a bargain. I am using i7 4ghz, 16gb RAM and Nvidia 970.

Its great to be back.

This game was always one of my favourites of all time. Now on PC with amazing graphics in 4K and unlimited frames with sharp keyboard + mouse controls is just must have. Game work without any issues, bugs, glitches. All controls, fight, aiming mechanics are top notch. I was also amazed how game looks. With all HD textures, awesome new lighting and shadows, Anti Aliasing this game looks like from 2017 and not 2006 when it originally came out for good, old Xbox 360. This is well justified £23 spent. Highly recommended to everybody.
