Others reviews have stated the campaign is terrible. So, kinda curious how this will pan out all together.

It's at 85 with over 40 reviews. Sounds like a fun one to me. Another check box for a game to get if/when I buy a One.

I am gonna have to wait on this one. It really doesn't look that great to me....Gears 3 or Judgement had fantastic art...this one just looks blah to me.
If it goes on sale for Black Friday, I will pick it up.

Sounds like it shines in MP, not SP.

And what little interest I had left in the game just evaporated.

the gears franchise hasn't had a great campaign and story since the first one, horde mode is where the games shine now for me at least.

The story has always been trash. All I really care about is a satisfying string of firefights that encourage the player to mix it up with the weapons, and a nice varied pace. If they can provide that, I'd be fine playing the game on mute with no subtitles while listening to a podcast.

I agree with mich, the story in the first was good but then quickly went downhill. I actually like the SP campaign in 2. I thought 3 was complete garbage in so many ways.
