IGN writes: "All in all the maps themselves are standard Gears of War fare. Under Hill is easily my favorite of the bunch because it favors Horde mode, but the rest of the maps have elements that some will be able to cling to. Snowblind is a good, but in no way revolutionary, pack of maps. It sticks to the Gear of War conventions which, for some, will mean a definite purchase. Casual players will likely want to pass".
