heres a video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=303&v=JalWT8oNxhk

From what I understand it was generally well recieved.
I think the fact that xbox has been abit lacking in exclusives and that It finally got a game that looked up to pair, ment reviewers were abit more generious with scores.

That said yeah... hype on vgcz didnt seem that big for it.
I think that boils down to how they marketed it, tbh.

Crowbcat is always a good watch. Also, didn't MS promise all 1st party games would be native 4K when the Scorpio came out? What happened to that?

I do not believe MS ever made a claim that all first party games will be native 4K.  It would be good if you can find that bit of info but I did some searching and could fine nothing.

They didn’t. Per usual, people are on some bullshit. Shannon Loftis did say Microsoft’s own titles launching during the Scorpio window would be native 4k. Which afaik they delivered on. Someone can prove me wrong though. 



It's certainly a good looking game. One of my top best? I wouldn't say that, but very good looking nonetheless...

Outside of that one-sided video, what suggests that the scores should have been lower?

After logging in about 6 hours of campaign, I have to say the crowbcat video is just trolling. Yeah, there's a couple of examples of things the older games did better but there's probably hundreds of examples of things Gears 5 does better. I'm actually impressed at his ability to make anything look bad!

Yeah, it's just nitpicking to fit a narrative. Unfortunately positive videos don't bring as much views.

It doesn't happen a lot that I play a new game and basically love it after a few hours. Really enjoyed the campaign and the open world elements was a good direction for the franchise and dislikes always happen especially in games with a multiplayer history. Only thing I can complain about is no more lootboxes means an insane grind for some objectives but maybe no so much if you are very active online.






At 60fps, with expansive open hubs and all those graphical settings, I believe Gears 5 is the most impressive game overall, this gen on consoles.
The Coaliton has on Rod Fergusson one of the best game directors in the industry, ask Ken Levine. He led the studio to accomplish Gears 5 in 2.5 years of development, on UE4.
Gears 5 is a Microsoft of old (Xbox 360 and OG Xbox) type of game. It is a game with a rich presentation, coupled with the best game mechanics in its genre. I say this because MS 1st party games were varied by genre and contrary to popular belief, Xbox was not just shooters, it only had two 1st party shooter IPs always in development.



Do you have fun playing a console different than mine?

DON'T!!!

I hope the responses showed you why there’s no thread on the game, lol.

I learned my lesson. 😢

I will play it with Gamepass on PC but I have no Ultimate so I still have to wait. Maybe I will post some screenshots as well the next days.



I got the 3 month ultimate gamepass for $15 and then cancel it just to play gears and blairwitch. Should be enough time to beat the games a couple of time. I am in the process of downloading the game.
