Why are we bashing UC4 in a Gears Review thread?
XD Where are these hot takes coming from? There's nothing about Gears 5 that says "expansion pack", except for those people who expected this to somehow become like a detective noir or something lol. It's a Gears game.. that evolves the formula.. and clearly generally succeeds at doing it according to these reviews.
Yes. The rodeo run and cover was cool for a while, but games have moved on, you don't need a heavy rodeo run for the same feel, and other TPSs have a much better and dynamic feel.
It's not bad, but it's definitely disappointing. Microsoft's first party stable really needs a standout title. And given the chances at it are few and far between (or have been over the last few years given limited AAA releases), it's particularly disappointing when another one fails to meet that standard. It's also particularly disappointing because Sony and Nintendo's first party efforts have been on a hot streak, and have fairly consistently reached higher standards. People like me just want to see Gears or Halo achieve something on the level of GOW 2018 or Zelda BOTW, basically. Does it need to? I guess not, but it sure would be rad.And to absolutely no surprise, this thread is already an embarrassment. Console warring everywhere. Calling it a flop. Since when was a game rated in the 80s a flop? Maybe play the game for yourself before calling it a flop. It's like all people do in today's world is read reviews and call it without ever bothering to actually experience it for themselves.
Lol. This is hilarious.I’ll tell ya what the problem is. Look at the animations. The roadie run. The rolling. That plonk into cover. Even picking up ammo.
This shit hasn’t changed since 2006. It’s always going to feel like the same game I played 5 times before, no matter what gimmicks you dress it with.
People expected 9’s and 10’s so.... :)

I agree that traversal has gotten better in general, but I love the roadie run. It makes Gears, well, Gears for me.
Yep. Running is super awkward. Jumping over cover is too and picking up ammo is old ass shit nobody wants. Throwing grenades is clunky too. I have so many issues with TD2s loot system but the game plays so well. Gears needs to get better no excuses.
if you search "horde" "pvp" "escape" you get no hits in that review and it's not "in progress". You're reviewing less than half the game, wtf is up with this? So many of these reviews completely ignore then multiplayer side of things.
I think it’s more that outlets don’t use the full numerical score anymore starting in they 360 gen. A 7 is what a 5 used to be. Now anything below 70 is untouchable which is silly
I only played first gears back in the day and it was pretty challenging and i am getting this one, but are you saying each game was getting easier and easier?
Music to my ears then. Have absolutely no problem with that! Had the whole thing been mostly open world however....but it's not. Great!Really the entirety of the game takes out place in the classic closed off areas. The open-world sections let you choose to go to some secondary missions, find some different weapons, and fill out some of the story. You can choose to just straight line it to the next objective.
Then that's all it will ever be. And will never get really high review scores.
