I've been trying out the new OverRun mode he new OverRun mode in demo form. It is a fun mode, but not at all a replacement for Horde Mode. Guess I must go back and play that instead...
OK, I'm a sucker, I bought it.
I'm trying to figure out which local modes there is in this stripped-down Gears. Team Deathmatch: COG vs COG, which seems weird, you can play with bots, but as usual you can't distribute the more unevenly than Player + N bots vs. N + 1 bots.
Versus Overrun just auto-fills with bots.
Survival, which right now doesn't include Horde Mode (I'm sure they'll sell it to me later), auto-spawns a full team of bots.
Played some multiplayer, getting shot a lot, and tried out the first campaign. Campaign looks alright.
Completed 2/7 acts. Combat is good, but the story and level doesn't do much for me.
Completed 3/7 acts.
Completed 5/7 acts.
completed the game on Hardcore difficulty (Judgment Campaign).
Started the Aftermath Campaign.
Oh, what I wouldn't give to be able to play Gears without the squad of idiots that are constantly blocking my way, ruining my immersion, and reviving me, removing any fear of death.

Playing the Judgment campaign on Hardcore with Jauert. More fun with two people.
