    Just started it this afternoon. Probably two hours in. So far just playing the campaign and really enjoying it. I believe I played GOW 2 and 3 on Xbox 360, but never the original so this is a new play for me.

    I picked it up via download, but have work and jury duty so I won't be able to try it for a few more days.

    The gears of war remake is the first one only, with the addition of pc exclusive levels, some revamp to maintain continually during the story, and a few other things like the gears 5 beta.

    Also, the Xbox 360 versions will be released after backwards compatibility is released, around November if I think correctly.

    Yeah with two purchases, you can get all the Halo games and all the Gears of War games on your Xbox console. It's a good time to be a gamer.

    Just to clarify, halo:reach is not included in Halo:MCC. Halo:ODST download code was sent free to people who owned Halo:MCC last year, but it is now a purchased game add-on for new purchasers ($5 or $10 I think.). Still a great deal for both gears & halo fans.
