I really enjoyed the open world segments. They were well implemented and offered nice little side quests that allowed you to boost Jack's abilities. It was (along with the other improvements the game made) exactly what the series needed.

Personally I thought it all fit really well. Didn't feel forced, just felt like a natural integration as it should.

I enjoyed the exploration bits and the skiff was fun to drive with tight controls. Thought it went well with the story; really liked Kait and Del's interactions as they ventured out together.

Now I'm on the skiff again with the full party and it's enjoyable to hear them reminiscing and joking.

Whatever, the games campaign is fantastic! The Graphics are absolutely in the top 10 this gen, especially if playing on 1X or high end PC!Multiplayer is also FANTASTIC!

I'm glad they didn't breack the game by trying to make a true open world game, and why would Gears need to be a open world game?
