lol I just hope Microsoft higher up their standards in making good exclusives and new ones, everyone going nuts with this new Gears while Gears 1 for the 360 has maintained the tops spot in ranking of the franchise and utterly is the truth(look at metacritic), this new Gears looks obsolete, blocky, bland environments, horrible lightning,low detail objects, etc, but hey you have 60 fps, and this makes it the best game of all ?, yikes! that's kinda sad if you think that way, Gears was made to portray badassery hell even the music released specially for Gears 1 was and still is freaking badass and awesome(look for it) and this Gears 5 game portrays......delicate flowers and a protagonist with a hair do ? aww even it has a color in between the hair(months developing lol), da funk!. oh well, at least developers could it make it look pretty and be pleasant to the eye and not looking like that.

You must have played the wrong game.

"Gears 1 for the 360 has maintained the tops spot in ranking of the franchise and utterly is the truth(look at metacritic)"

Amazing how when it confirms your opinion Metacritic is indisputable, but when it doesn't all the reviews are bs. How about you put your big brain to use and stop using it altogether?

"this new Gears looks obsolete, blocky, bland environments, horrible lightning,low detail objects"

Act 1 takes place in a city under attack
Act 2 in the remains of the rockworm from Gears 2, snowy environment and abandoned facility
Act 3 in the desert and a launch facility with lightning strikes that form obsidian trees after striking
Act 4 ruined settlement in the rain

This is not a game where you can claim the environments are bland as it's probably the most varied we've seen in the entire series. You do remember Gears 1 being like 70-90% grey depending on the level right? Criticising the visuals too? Game is one of the best looking around regardless of platform. If Gear 5 on PC looks bland then every single console game is an eyesore.

"but hey you have 60 fps, and this makes it the best game of all ?"

Competitive shooter manages too look fantastic while also achieving what should be the bare minimium for ALL games releasing this gen? Apparently that is actually impressive given that so many games have failed to achieve it this gen despite it being hyped up at the start.

"Gears was made to portray badassery hell even the music released specially for Gears 1 was and still is freaking badass and awesome(look for it) and this Gears 5 game portrays......delicate flowers and a protagonist with a hair do ?"

Putting that big brain to use I see! Music is a valid criticism but you obviously don't know what your'e talking about because your criticism had zero substance. The OST just lacks the basic theme Gears usually goes for (look for it). It's got some decent tracks (kaits theme) but for the most part it lacks the character typical of previous games in the series had. It's at best a minor criticism.

Thats some next level salt up there.

A lot of fans hate it too including myself. I only care about the multiplayer and it is garbage. Lancers are op, breaker mace can fuck your whole team from a mile, hit box is horrible and way too oversized. Its a mess and IGN gave it a 9, fucking casuals ruining gears and turning it into fortnite. and i agree with every statement. Sadly, xbox gamers have such low standards these days.

FanboySpotter34d ago

@azizlksa according to your comments you're a ps fanboy. And your gamertag - azizlksa - doesn't exist fraud. No wonder I thought your concerns about lancers and hitboxes seemed like bs. Mp is all skill, seen my brother take out a few lancer users with an enforcer only. get good(not that you will since you don't even play it)

my gamertag is :

You are a blind fanboy, and no true fan of the trilogy is ok with with this broken ass cod multiplayer.

I got my eyes on 343i and what they are going to create for Halo infinite.

mcstorm34d ago

I'm with you on this. I think what pg has done with horizon and Now what has been done with gears microsoft top developers are going to start to deliver. Looking forward to halo but for me this gen FPS games have felt poor compaired to last gen.

kungfuian35d ago

Gears looks great and all, but if the next 'high profile' game is Halo 5, which releases at the end of next year, then their 'new chapter' kinda reads like the old one.

A few hits certainly can't hurt given their abysmal output over the last 2 years, but they need a sustained steady flow of high quality releases. Otherwise it's the same old same old.

ZombieGamerMan35d ago

Fresh new chapter that once again banks on past success by rolling in the old Gears crew to hang out with the new kiddies.But hey I guess having a MC with vagina constitutes as a fresh new chapter nowadays

TK-6635d ago

You've basically proven that no matter what they do they can't win in your view. A major criticism with Gears 4 was not enough of the old cast and Gears 5 literally tries to capitalize on past events and characters and working them into the story.

ZombieGamerMan34d ago

Well I never complained about the lack of ol Gears characters in Gears 4, just lack of any actual innovation for a Gears game

TK-6634d ago

"Well I never complained about the lack of ol Gears characters in Gears 4"

Right, it's the vagina in Gears 5 that gets you riled up lol.

coolbeans35d ago

Oh no...a new trilogy in which new characters hang around old characters like virtually every other blockbuster series in existence. And a female secondary protagonist becomes the primary on here after valid reasons.

Any other stale complaints?

SyntheticForm35d ago

The Coalition have done an exceptional job.

Gears 5 is a very impressive package, and I'm loving all of it.

Only taking a small break for the CoD Beta on PlayStation - then I'll be back at it.
