As an avid Gears fan I was really looking forward to this, but feel let down. The campaign is somewhat short, and even playing it on hardcore first time around left me thimking 'is that it'? This really could have been released as DLC for Gears 3 and not as a full title. But hey ho, Gears was always about playing online and mainly Horde, which was copied by other developers but never bettered. Horde was vastly improved in Gears of War 3, so I couldn't wait to see what they'd done for this incarnation. Well, they've taken it away. No Horde. NO HORDE! This is akin to Coca Cola's disastrous recipe change of the 80's, what were they thinking? It seems they've given us Survival as a Horde replacement and a Domination game in some weird attempt to lure COD fans away from the excellent Black Ops 2. Well, Survival is no Horde replacement guys, and COD fans will always play COD. Please bring back our original recipe Gears soon.
