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.
Yes it is
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.
Great game. Finishing tonight. Then it's most likely onto Bloodstained via Game Pass.
same, going to finish gears 5 this weekend then onto bloodstain. gears 5 is a 9/10 for me so far. the level design and set pieces are amazing
I cant stop playing this game and the graphics are amazing
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 😂
Best Gears game since 3.
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.
Yeah but the same thing couldn’t be said for the other side (at least not yet).
Despite all your repeated attempts to belittle it I found Days Gone quite interesting.
haven't played days gone yet but it's a toss up between sekiro and gears 5 for goty imo.
I'm having a friggin blast with this game!!! Been playing online campaign coop and my cousin and I cant stop! I give this game a 9.2 out of 10
I'm also playing co-op campaign, it's awesome
I just now entered 100 hours into this game and I can't stop playing. Very addicting. Definitely the best Microsoft exclusive in a long time, probably the entirety of this gen from them.
Other than the bullet magnetism in the online which makes it very noob friendly, it’s enjoyable. Ive yet to beat the campaign
Gears is a really tough game to get good at online, I think boobs friendliness would he a blessing to newcomers because once they enter the more competitive gnasher space they get their ass handed to them
Well you get placed in your skill level in Rank so as long as you're good you won't have any issues running across noobs.
Either way, everyone can take advantage of this bullet magnet thing that halo 5 also had, pro or noob.
I know Ranked Escalation and Execution are the only 2 modes with aim assist disabled. I'm sure they will patch it
Must of received a free copy with a large paycheck from the gaming company for this one.
I guess alot of other publications must have received a large check as well because there are alot of positive reviews. /s
Positive reviews are fine perfect scores are something else entirely, as good as it may be Gears 5 is not a perfect game.
@solidx Have you even go near this game, like at all dude? Different people have different opinions.
@King_Noctis The game is very good and deserving up to and including 9's. But there are quite a few glitches and bugs on release. Otherwise I would give it a perfect score.
You are correct they all have agreements
I played the first chapter and couldnt bring my self to put it back on. Far from a perfect game.
Have you played it dadz?
Haters gonna hate
Good god. It's fun but about as generic and dumb as it comes. It's a good 8 at best, introduces nothing new, has typical bro shooter writing and terrible sound (headshot 50 feet away is louder than the gun in my hand?) Putting it up there with god of war, tlou or halo ce stinks of ms £££ being given to a struggling newspaper.
name a game that's like gears 5 other than a previous gears game? I think it's pretty unique.
Love how this is going guys. A 10 from ign and a 10 from the telegraph.... ign are renowned xboy fanboys and the telegraph is a tabloid newspaper.
