Gears of War 4

Doubtless the best looking Gears game to date, Gears of War 4 is one of the most visually impressive games on the Xbox One, period (and yes, I am one of those who think that graphics matter).

But sprinkled across this gore fest are elements of accessibility, depth and flexibility. It refines every facet and mechanic imaginable and offers up a tremendous amount of content that will keep players compelled and deprived of sleep for weeks to come. If you hated the previous games, then steer clear, but anyone with an Xbox 360 should pick up this superb third-person shooter right away, and without hesitation.
