Horde mode is the greatest, especially for replay value it would've been nice if they included it

But Gears 1 didn't have a horde mode so I understand why they left it out

Oh yeah, huge shame. I spent so much time playing Horde with friends. Fully expect it to make an enormous return with Gears 4. That said, it's a shame they don't just wave it away with a "yeah why not", since it's not like Horde mode is 100% connected to the story anyway.

Ohhhhww! I wanted it.

However, with Backwards Compatability, I can soon play Gears 2 Horde Mode, my favorite, as I can beat all 50 stages by myself, setting shields up, while holding down the Fort!

I'll be there day 1 for Gears Ultimate, with the day off. I'll play till my daughter gets home, then it's Campaign Co-op!

of course not... its gears 1 not gears 2... should of thought it was obvious ...

Summons751195d ago

because adding content is such a horrible thing that adds value....

Rookie_Monster1194d ago (Edited 1194d ago )

It never have horde mode so I don't get the complaint. It is not like they took away mp when it had them from last gen like other games are doing..MP is still there now on dedicated server and eventually cross play with PC. Add to that it has 5 additional levels that were only on PC.

TheHaloGuy1194d ago

Complication comes from adding stuff to old code. I mean my God, look at MCC! I don't wanna wait 8 months to play with my friends again. Mp/coop campaign will be plenty. That said I wish 343 would stop being soo fucking stubborn and add firefight to Halo 5. I really miss the Firefight from Reach.

Dirtnapstor1195d ago

They could have easily implemented this. Everyone loves Horde mode, so why not? Unless they're going to hammer out remasters of 2 & 3. Totally expect it.

jeromeface1194d ago (Edited 1194d ago )

It's dev laziness. Horde mode has become a staple to the franchise and should have been added. Watch it come down the pipe as DLC, disgusting. This is microsoft after all, kinda surprised they haven't started charging for continues when you die.

sammarshall1021194d ago

Microsoft studios being so lazy and greedy they didn't include multiplayer in The Uncharted Collection oh wait...

zidane13411194d ago

Yeah, cuz sonys soooo much better.


SilentNegotiator1194d ago (Edited 1194d ago )

I didn't realize that this was just GeOW1.

Too bad it isn't a trilogy remaster like MCC.

Jmanzare1194d ago

Yea it would be cool but they will all be backwards compatible and gears 3 is one of the free games this month I'm pretty sure. There was a huge sale last year I believe and I got all of the GoW games for 5 bucks each so once it's backwards compatible I will have the entire collection. With reach as well to add to the mcc

Its a shame this didn't turn out to be a collection. I was debating getting a XB1 after a gears collection and some of those 2016 games drop. I wanted to get caught up on 360 exclusives that never came to PC as part of my purchasing decision.

GigawattConduit1195d ago

Yeah, not sure why they decided on re-releasing only the first game. At the very least include 2 and 3, since 2 is the better of the four.

TheLoCoRaven1195d ago

The first one is the only one I've played because its the one that came to PC. I was thinking about grabbing a XB1 on black friday . . . with a halo and gears collection, while waiting for things like quantum break.

Summons751195d ago

Pretty sure it's because they want to avoid the horror that was the Master Chief Collection. Also 2 was not the best. 1,3,2, judgement.

GigawattConduit1195d ago

2, 3, 1, Judgement. Not that 1 is bad, but it just doesn't feel as polished as 2 does.

vickers5001194d ago

Am I living in an alternate universe where Gears 2 mp WASN'T a broken mess that took 20 minutes to find a match at launch? Because it did, and it was awful. Havent played judgement, but Gears 2 is definitely the worst Gears I've played.

Didn't really care for the Dom/Wife plot either.

Gears 1 and 3 were the best by far.

etownone1195d ago

Well... you can now play those 360 games on xb1. Gears 2 and 3

And Gears 1 is the best out of all of them.

Mikey941195d ago

Was not impressed with the beta. The game is so outdated. This game will last like 2 months until its population is dead.

TheLoCoRaven1195d ago

Nostalgia usually makes games sell well but die off fast. Gamers don't buy consoles to play older games so that sentiment sinks in once the nostalgia wears off.

zidane13411194d ago

Yeah maybe to you. The beta was much, much better then the original. And a lot of nice gameplay tweaks. So no it's not "outdated"
