Bought the game a few months ago because I was looking for a great coop game that would play really well with 2 players since once a week I play duo with my brother and he loves coop games.
I also LOVE hard games that don't take you by the hand, like Arkham Horror.
At first I was not really sure about my purchase, but that was before my first game. Then came the day we played Emergence, the first scenario. We lost hard and we decided to retry it immediately.
Since then we played the first 3 scenarios a couple of time each and we lost every single one of them, just near the end everytime, but have more and more fun playing it.
It's one of the best coop games out there that i've played and damn glad I bought it.
I might even paint the minis, which are one of the best sculpts FFg has ever produces, they're simply awesome. Great details that scream to get painted!
So that's simply it, wanted to add another positive comment about GoW, which imo EVERYONE that loves coop and difficult games where team work is extremely important, should get it!
