Is the game fun? Yes. Will you enjoy it as a gears of war fan? No. The game is striped of virtually all unique and iconic gears of war features. It is your standard first person shooter, in third person, basically. The cover system is the same shockingly, however you can now jump from ledges, a new feature i hate. Also, the new weapons are pretty lame/stupid, and the classics seem to take a back seat. Below is a list of things NOT IN JUDGMENT...
-LOCUST v. COG MULTIPLAYER (its cog v. cog...... seriously)
-CLASSIC WEAPON LOADOUT (now its just 1 weapon and a pistol, Y to switch, not D-Pad)
Theres more but honestly I don't care this game is no Gears of War. So if you're a fan of the series don't buy the game, it will only disappoint.

This is by far the worst game I have ever played. It's times like these that I am thankful for Game Fly because I didn't have to spend 60 dollars to find out how horrible it is. The campaign story is a comical joke and multiplayer outside of overrun is not worth playing. So if you want to rent it to experience overrun (key word there is rent) then do so. Other than that don't waste your time on this disgrace to the Gears of War franchise.
