Gears of Wars Ultimate Edition Early Beta Impression

Written by: SHO 6 0 on June 18, 2015.
Monday Microsoft announced the Gears of War: Ultimate Edition and a public beta that's going on as we speak. From what I could see they've been pretty generous with access codes for it because most of my friends are playing it off and on. Why you aren't allow to party with friends and wreck havoc on xbl is beyond me but it's a beta so it is what it is.

The game looks magnificent. The colors and textures are vibrant and seem to pop. I'm a little surprised at how great the visuals are but Gears has always been beautiful. The gameplay is definitely Gears 1 with a touch of Gears 3 because they added spotting which is good but the more I play the more I wish I had other abilities from the other Gears games like planting nades on walls or blowing myself up while I'm downed etc. It takes a lot of getting used at first because it runs 60 frames per second but it's still Gears so the gameplay is slow and methodical. With the beta being on Xbox One you'd think the dedicated servers would change how Gears flowed online but it's seems to be the same old Gears 1 for better or for worse or maybe my internet just sucks. It's Gears and even though it's great there isn't much else to say just yet. I'll have my lasting impression up for the beta a few days after it ends.
