When the Xbox 360 launched in 2005, I had no intention to purchase it until Halo 3 hit store shelves. Halo was, after all, the only reason why I had the original Xbox. That was until I was invited over to a friend's house to play this new game called Gears of War. I was blown away by the insane multiplayer and the incredible weapons, most notably the chainsaw bayonetted Lancer. The gore, graphics, and cooperative campaign were a huge part of why I went home and began saving up for the 360. Now it's nearly a decade later and the Xbox One's remaster of Gears of War is here. Does Gears of War: Ultimate Edition recapture that same, bloody magic that made the original so special or is it just a subpar port with a new coat of paint?
