Pure Xbox Game Club April 2023: Gears Of War

Want to enhance your Xbox Game Pass experience? Come join the official Pure Xbox Game Club!

We can't take any credit on staff for this — the PX Game Club is the work of ralphdibny and the rest of the contributors over at the Pure Xbox forums, who have established a community that meets up every month to play a game on Xbox Game Pass and share their experiences. Games are voted on every month by the contributors involved.

The game for April 2023 is Gears of War, which is available on Xbox Game Pass and can be played in one of two forms - either the original Xbox 360 version, or the Ultimate Edition for Xbox One. The choice is up to you!

You'll find the forum thread to get involved below (it has over 2,490 entries to date!):

If you're interested in what kind of discussion goes on, here's what a couple of contributors had to say about last month's Pure Xbox Game Club title, Atomic Heart:

"I REALLY wanted to like this game, there were elements I did enjoy and a few hours in I thought it might end up being great. It definitely wasn't all bad. But it was a frustrating experience as there were frequent glimpses of what could have been, but it was always just out of reach, and falling over itself. Hence I really can't recommend it. It's a shame as the dev seemingly did so much hard work in key areas, but just couldn't quite pull it all together into a seamless whole. But they have talent, that is clear, and I look forward to seeing what Mundfish make next."

"I do hope that the developer is able to keep the lights on as I would like to see what else they accomplish. Atomic Heart wasn't a perfect game, but it's clear that the developers have talent that can only grow with time."
