I think 85 score is reasonable enough for Gears 5. They just messed up too many things. I'm not a fan of this open world stuff, it should be for one act only. The story is built around Kate and she just isn't such an interesting character. Act II ended in bullshit bossfight.

Gears 4 versus is superior with better maps and weapon balance.

edit. Of course those 7 out of 10 scores are ridiculous any way you look at it.

I stand by knocking it down a notch for those 'release-day' issues.  Having great portions of Act II be knee-capped by in-game cutscenes or dialogue that wouldn't properly trigger shouldn't be ignored.

I was surprised to see that 100% completion doesn't take that long... for an RPG that is.
Guess the 3x speed really helps a lot.

I'm just an hour in but I'm not really feeling it. I can definitely see why it was groundbreaking back then but it hasn't aged well. Gameplay is slow, 3D graphics are of course terrible, 2D backgrounds look good but are difficult to navigate. I like the smooth transition from FMV to gameplay though.
The story still has a chance to win me over but other than that I'm more looking forward to playing Tales of Vesperia DE which I also bought recently (far too many games, please kill me)

Other than that I bought FFVII with MS rewards money, so it's not that much of a waste.

The more I play Gears 5, the more I feel like the 8.5 average score is pretty accurate. The story is really good, has the same solid gameplay from the series we've come to expect but that doesn't warrant a 90+ score imo. I personally would give the game an 8.5, which is a fantastic score imo. Idk who these people are that think anything that doesn't do 90+ is bad, plus the scores the game received is irrelevant if you yourself love the game and think it's a perfect 10/10 game.

Anyway, Gamepass additions look really good like usual. I was on the fence about buying Bloodstained and now I can play it through gamepass, jump force I've heard is pretty bad but I'll give it a play regardless.

Not like there’s a big difference but personally it meets that 90 score criteria for me, and it’s been a while since a MS studio has done that. The story really pulled me in thanks to the amazing voice acting. The gameplay is gears, super snappy and fun. The MP is really good, they managed to evolve it without alienating their core (something 343 hasn’t managed). The escape and horde modes are equally as nice. The only thing I would say as a negative is the launch issues.

How would you say they evolved the multiplayer? They didn't add any new modes to play, those couple of new weapons aren't exactly innovative, most stuff they decided to add is familiar from other shooters. They've lowered the skill cap by making movement slower, adding aim assist & bigger hitboxes etc. 

I mean yeah, it's fun and all but they've definitely alienated the core of Gears. I can see why they did it though. I hope it'll be a success and bring in new fans. Afraid it won't though.



I like Xbox.
