Platform: PC

What a fine port!

A good game with a good port. Worth the purchase. Too bad it doesn't let OBS on detecting this game.




Platform: Xbox

Gears Up! Ready4War...

Good dash, poor in melee.

Platform: PC

Loads only on first startup. Hangs on subsequent runs

As the headline mentions...does not run at all for me now. Furthermore, terrible screen tearing during cutscenes.
