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.
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.
