Fun game, but short campaign and there is no more horde!
on June 9, 2014
I loved Horde mode in GoW 2 and 3, but Survival and Overrun do not make up for getting rid of Horde. What the heck were they thinking!? Horde mode gave you 50 rounds and it could take you 3-4 hours or more on the harder difficulties, but Survival just seems to short and you are limited to the few classes. I dunno, I guess I just loved 3's Horde mode so much.
The campaign is pretty good, but extremely short compared to the other GoW games. The addition of declassified missions is nice as it definitely brings a challenge. I did not start Aftermath yet, but I hear it's more like the GoW 3 style.
Anyway, if you pick up this game cheap like I did (under 10 USD shipped), then go for it. Otherwise, wait until a GOTY edition that gives you the season pass.
