If you want to check out the differences between Gears of War: Ultimate Edition on Xbox One, and the original game on Xbox 360, Microsoft provided DualShockers with some really interesting screenshots.
I'm consistently getting more and more tired of spending my money on games I've already played on other systems but I'll be damned if this doesn't look hella good. GOD DAMNIT MICROSOFT. You win this round. SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!
I mean, it looks good. But GoW in 2006(was it?) was far more impressive to me than this remaster is today. My gripe with gears is they have continually seemed to change everything to execution mode, which is BS. If I down someone, I should be able to put a few more in him at 20 yards and finish him off, I shouldn't have to close that ground only for him to get up and shotgun me. It's stupid. I'm holding out to see what the playlists are like in multiplayer. I'm not buying this if every matchmade game plays execution rules. I need an objective based standard rule set playlist. I really would have preferred a full remaster like H2A, port it over to Unreal 4 instead of using 3 again... They can only justify that price tag because they are throwing in 4 other GoW games. I'd have just liked this game at $10-15.
Its called execution because you have to... Execute the downed enemy. Ever seen an execution? Its all done up close and personal. Plus, almost all the gametypes had the setting where you can down an enemy and finish them off from a distance. Youre wrong.
That is why you have other game modes! It's kind of like playing capture the ring, and then complain about the ring....
This is a petty extensive reworking of the game. The lighting and shading in particular are vastly better than in the original.
They have my money for sure.After playing the beta and seeing just how much has changed graphically I can't wait to get stuck in again.I really need a good multiplayer game to keep me going.
This Is essentially a Remake, Not A Simple 1080p bump, cheap cash grab. It is like night and day compared to the X360 version. Add on 4 additional BC titles, all online ready, crossed platform play with PC and 5 additional PC levels, $40 is totally justify.
Don't forget dedicated servers, modernized game mechanics, redone cinematics, significantly upgraded facial animation and redone animations overall. At $40, I would say it is a steal compared to some of the other 1080p bump and cheap cash grab!
A remake changes some of the gameplay it is still a remaster, just a well done one
Actually some of the gameplay has been tweaked as well, such as movement and cover, as I understand. It's really just semantics whether you call it a remake or a remaster. Lots of assets clearly have been "remade". It's partially remade and partially remastered.
Now THAT'S how you remaster a game!
Looks beautiful. The character models in the beta looked amazing so detailed. It was like I was playing It on a pc.
this Remastered is too much in a best way! this thing is a remake!!! crazy!
Massive ... Disappointment!!! 360 screenshots look even better
The 360 version looks muddy and very dark.
You need to get your eye check, pal. LoL Either that or you forgot to put Sarcasm at the end. Either way, it comes with the original Gears 1 via BC, so you can have that too, if you preferred. :)
Gears of War Ultimate - A Truly re-mastered game... True graphical improvement! Plus multi-player and the BC versions of all four gears games as a bonus. And the game isn't even a full priced game! Value everywhere here!
Yes, its is a improvement. But my turnoff with this edition it is 30 FPS in campaign and 60 FPS in multiplayer, that is so bullshit. So I gonna skip this remaster because of 30 FPS crap for singleplayer.
Seriously? I thought campaign mode was 60 fps. This is going to change my mind about it now.
@marioJP87: Yes it is. It has been said a long time. Why don't do both, like TLOU Remastered that had 60 FPS in single and multiplayer. I get disagrees when I state the fact from salty Xbox One fans.
I wish halo 5 single player was 30fps so they could increase the graphics even more! 60fps is fin for multi player as that's compete time against other people. Single player is against Ai so ramp up the graphics!!
Well, to be fair, TLOU remastered was more of a straight port to PS4 with a higher resolution and a few minor improvements but otherwise essentially the same assets, so it would naturally be easier to run at a higher framerate.
BEST "REMASTER" EVER, EVER!
This looks phenomenal. But, I really like the way the 360 version looked in 2006, it's almost too clean now.
the difference is huge
