I played the first game when it came out back in 2006 and enjoyed it, though the grayed style definitely put me off a bit, it was a graphical feat. This remaster will have the greatest effect on you if you have played the original version first or recently. First off the graphics are an immense upgrade and it is nice to see the first game brought up to current gen standards. They didn't just up the graphics though, to site an example, in the refinery level there is a ton of extra detail added in. From lots of added foliage to immulsion platforms out in the ocean. There are new details to see in most of the levels.
The game has solid cover and shooting gameplay just like the original and even has an added chapter in the game that was only on the PC version. It is a pretty nice add on chapter for people of have played Gears 1 before, though a bit shorter than the other chapters.
So why I gave this game a four star is because even though the remaster adds some content and looks fantastic, just like Halo Anniversary, this version still possess all it's original weaknesses. I have not played the multiplayer, but from videos it looks impressive also. GOWU is definitely worth owning on your Xbox One, especially if you never got a chance to play it in the first place. Hopefully they'll remaster Gears of War 2, which was my personal favorite.
Honestly, I'm a much bigger Gears fan than Halo fan so I was really glad to see this even though I still own all the Gears games on my 360 and I'm not usually into remasters. It's not long into the game before you see that this is a gorgeous looking remaster that stands up to new gen graphics. Everything looks great, especially the characters armor and weapons. Even the cut scenes were touched up and reworked. It's a noticeable difference in what was already a great looking game. Maybe it's the controller but controls almost feel better here too. I found it incredibly easy to jump back in with great success even though I hadn't played Gears for some time. This game still plays great and feels really good. Though many have copied it, Gears mastered the art of stop and pop cover shooting. What really grabbed my attention was the announcement that levels only released on the PC would be included here. That's a great bonus for 360 owners like me who never got to play them. Multiplayer also returns and is as good as ever with the innovative and often copied Horde mode. Another huge bonus is the inclusion of every 360 Gears game available for download, which should be sometime before January. That's an incredible value. If I could change anything, it would be for some more destructible environments and the seemingly light weight of fallen Locust who get easily pushed around when you walk over them. This was all part of the original design so I won't fault that. It would've been nice though. As a graphical upgrade, you couldn't ask for more than this. The Coalition did a fantastic job. This is how a remaster should look.
Overall, there's a ton of value here for newcomers to the series and Gears vets alike. Gears of War is still a lot of fun and thanks to this excellent remaster, it feels as fresh and exciting as when it was first released. This is a great way to get up to speed or reacquainted with the story in anticipation of Gears 4 next year. For Xbox One owners, there's no reason this shouldn't be in your library. Highly recommend.
The multiplayer is locked in at 60 FPS I believe, and I think it's makes a fairly noticeable difference. I am not really a fan of 60FPS or 120/240/960(??) hz on TVs; I think the original framerate is good enough, and the super smoothness is a little distracting to me. Other than that, the multiplayer is a lot of fun, even I sometimes go 0 and 8 (yeah, I'm little more advanced that some of the AI in the game at times). Games are easy to access, and the modes are fun, they just need to add Horde mode from Gears 2 and 3. If I'm not mistaken, team deathmatch wasn't in the original gears, so if they can make the latter happen, they can make Horde mode happen (I hope they do, or we'll just wait for Gears 4 and whatever awesome co-op experience awaits there).
I think the inclusion of free downloads for the original 360 games is an awesome bonus, and you get early access to Gears 4 beta next spring. Great value in one package!
