Just downloaded it last night, played for a while. Not sure I like the free games where you have the option to spend $ for items tho. (read on for my reason why lol)
The gameplay on my Lumia 900 was pretty good, smooth, fast and fun. But on my wifes 1st gen Focus it was a little slower to load and got choppy at times.
I actually bought some items with some xbox points I had on my account from over a year ago, but when I bought a couple top level items, I realized that I had pretty much spent the equivalent of $50 on items! ouch! This was obviously my own fault for not knowing what the point to $ ratio was.
Anyways, I'm well invested into this game now, so I hope to get as much out of it as possible now.
I'd like to know of other ppls thoughts on this game, I like the possibility of having "buffs" from having friends who have the game, but I have few friends that have WPs...

havent played much , but so far , im loving it!
only thing is the multyplaye is dumb... you dont play with a friend , your bro just gets your friends gear and the AI plays... lame.
For the Real $$ store , meh its just a way for them to make cash you dont actually need to pay real $ to finish the game or to have the top gear. its mostly just to get it finished faster,.
im playing it right now at work on my FOCUS rev1.3 first gen , zero problems so far. now i dont have a L900 to compare it to but im not noticing any problems or lag.
loading takes 10-20 sec ... i dont find that a valid complaint... if 10-20 sec loading wait time gets any one pissed off put your phone down behind the wheel of a car and revers over it.
or smoke some green and chill....

I like it now I've got more used to it. Once I realized I could move about more freely I started actually winning. Now working my way to the bigger guns. I agree though with so few people I know actually owning a WP can't really explore the MP. Still fun though.

I actually start to like the game. The controls are a bit harsh and small. But overall this game has plenty of content. Bro-ops is unexpected a nice Live feature. If you can manage to get a few active players (who daily complete the single player challenges) in your friend list it is probably possible to start hunting for the normally paid item.
First game of Glu worth playing. :P

The sound is off/lags when shooting guns, was'nt like that on android version, plus on android they made it where u could get free warbucks, it takes ages to load
Fun game still, just disappointed in the quality, playing this makes me want native code for devs sooooo much, cant wait for wp8

Game is ok... I had played it in the past on iOS any enjoyed it for awhile but now that I can aim for some achievements I will have more reason to try fit in a few games each day!
The Virtual Thumb Sticks will put me off on most games but I find this one much harder then say Z0MB1ES (on teh ph0ne) since sometimes I will just end up not moving since my thumb has left the area!
Overall though its enjoyable in small chunks and well its free :)
Feel free to add me! (GT: DarkSynopsis) only got 1 friend with a Windows Phone on my list as is! I'm sure some more Bro Buffs could be useful and getting challenges done :)

I probably haven't given it enough time to sink in (playing through Puzzle Quest 2 on the go), but for some reason the menu system in Gun Bros is a huge turn off. It feels clunky and I hate that so much of the paid stuff is mixed in with the regular items. As for the game itself, it's pretty similar to Smash TV, Geometry Wars, etc. and it's free so no complaints there.
Feel free to add me if you want to play sometime, I also do a fair amount of gaming on the Xbox. jdegreez

wired, i have friends in the leader board but no bros?!
PS. i just compared it to GUN BROS on my Buds Iphone 4.
the Iphone version is a LITTLE better , but the screen is ZOOMED out compare to me being ZOOMED in to the point i can see the stretch marks on my Bro's arms.. rolf..
Also Iphone version has Advertising ( annoying as ****)
controls = SAME thing. but they have more animation they have a little green arrow pop up when you move but they are all the same. typical touch screen controls.

Some people have been reporting problems with the Bro's and Bro-Buffs. I've filled a report ticket at the official site of Glu. However remembering the horrible service with Bug Village, that game still doesn't work correctly in some localized areas..., I fear for the worst.

This morning I had 3 friend requests (dont know how since I dont know them and my GT isnt anywhere I know of) and they all showed up as Bros. Added someone from here who hasnt accepted my request and he too shows up and is usable in my game. Not sure if this is all expected behaviour but I havent had any issues I can tell.

found 2 bugs.
1. game get stuck on loading screen for ever when opening it. ( waited 20min never loaded)
2. Games doesn't save in QUICK RESUME 80% of the time . I need to re-open it. it just vanishes from my task list. ( I hit the back key by accident from in the game..push and hold back to open quick resume menu and its not there.)

I think I figured out what is going on with the controls. Its not that it just stops responding. But there are a lot of things in the game that stop/stun your character and make you release the movement stick and move it again to move. Pretty much anything that explodes near you except barrels and bosses seem to have this affect. After realizing this I dont really see any problems with the controls other than having real joysticks would pwn.

I add every one on this post (my tag: smokekillyourtv). Feel free to add me too.
The only detail on this game its the size and response of the sticks, i feel them smaller than other titles (like zombies on the phone) and sometimes trying to evade minions, i get stuck cause my finger is out of the stick zone. It's frustrating.
I'm mexican, sorry if i misspelled.
