i recently won a new xbox in a contest and i wanted some games that i could LAN(local area network) with my brother on our old xbox. we already had these games and this was on sale so i decided to get this. if you plan on LANing these games with friends be advised that in order to play with other xboxs you need to have the same version of update so if one of your friends plays online, everybody else will need to connect to xbox live with the game in the xbox to get the same version of update. the DLC(downloadable content) that comes with this is something you have to download from xbox live and is about 700mb so you will want to have a good internet connection or a friend that has one because it took me about 3 hours to download it. they are top quality games and if you dont already have them it is a great option.
This is a great buy for anyone who is interested int the gears series. I played the first gow back when it first came out. Thought the game was great but I didn't own an xbox. I now have one and saw this triple pack and I have to say im glad they put the games together because buying them seperately would cost about the same as a new game. I wish more games would come this way it gets the good games back out there to people who haven't had the chance to play them. All and all buy it if you like fps's.
