Gears 5 Review: thrills, kills and funnies in a spectacular sci-fi surprise I TELEGRAPH

Gears 5 is still, at its heart, a game about crouching behind walls and making things dead with exotic weaponry. Honestly, what I really didn’t expect was for Gears 5 to be this good.

I for one didn't expect it to be this good. I wasn't the biggest fan of Gears 4as I felt it didn't move the series forward. It played it safe and relied on old mechanics which Rod admitted was their goal. Gears 5 surpassed all my expectations.

Same here, especially coming off Gears of War 4. But story alone is exactly what the series needed and those non-linear sections in the game has so much potential.

I just completed it the other day, I'll definitely give this a 9 out 10.

Yeah the story was amazing, and had me hooked from beginning to end.I also loved the level designs and how the environment played a part in killing but also gave you options for cover.

Seriously, dude, same here.
I thought I'd be disappointed in it as I was in GOW4. I played a portion of story mode and was easily impressed. Playing it in 4K/HDR is definitely a plus.

Yeah I've been playing, Rank a lot. But I'm definitely going back to campaign since I'm a completionist. I want to upgrade Jack all the way 😂

Yes I agree with that, for a while I thought the series would peak at 3. I couldn't be more wrong. This game just opened the door for future Gears games to be even bigger and better

About time MS dropped an awesome exclusive. Happy for you Xbox only players.

That's very pleasing to ear, at last xbox owners has the first interesting game in the current year.

King_Noctis34d ago

Yeah but the same thing couldn’t be said for the other side (at least not yet).

SolidGamerX34d ago

Despite all your repeated attempts to belittle it I found Days Gone quite interesting.

mark_parch33d ago

haven't played days gone yet but it's a toss up between sekiro and gears 5 for goty imo.
