Gears 5

Many gamers said it is the best campaign of any Gears yet. I got the Ultimate Game Pass, I'm waiting that bugs are fixed.

This will be one of the first games I buy when I'm able to catch a break during a busy time at work. Both gameplay and graphics look great.

Cheer up

There's a total of 3 users being critical whereas 9 users are praising it. I don't think you should be sad about making the thread.

Crowbat 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?

Another flip flop. [as an answer to the above belief about a 180]

I'm playing on Xbox One X and the game looks and plays incredibly well. I don't want to use hyperbole but it's definitely in the running for the best looking game I've personally ever played.

It's quite a gorgeous game and has me way more interested in the story than 4 did through the first 2 acts.

DonFerrari said:
Great News. Enjoy the game.

trunkswd said:
I've played a bit of the first Act and am loving the game so far. Really recaptures the enjoyment I had from the original trilogy.

CGI-Quality said: 
It's certainly a good looking game.

It doesn't happen a lot that I play a new game and basically love it after a few hours.

Goatseye said:
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.

I'm tempted to get a Xbox One for Gears.

I've been really enjoying Gears 5. I'm on Act 3, and it's hands down better than Gear 4.

 Gears 5 is awesome one of the best games this gen for me so far!

Dont give Haterz a Chance!



Beautiful screenshots @CGI love the amount of detail on the dirt on the wall, genuinely makes it look like a real war torn area, very little of that room is "video game looking" as in the alignment of the bed, dresser and carpet are all more realistically messed around than just arranged in a static way which items are presented in a game, simply down to the fact that a lot of game creation tools and creators will opt for the easy way to align certain items into a room knowing that certain angles will not present clipping issues with items over each other, but it looks like that ruined kids room alone got the attention that it didn't deserve as a tiny room... but it makes it look so real. That aspect of things looking dirty and gritty is one of the best things of the gears series, I genuinely think nothing ever felt as real as seeing Dom's wife in her beautiful dress coming out of her chamber in Gears 2, really looking forwards to getting my hands on this as soon as I have hours enough to enjoy it.



Wow.... I know I'm gushing over that room btw, but look at the bed even, it's a kids room yeah? the blanket in the bed has been placed the wrong way around as in the design of it is not correct to that of the bed, but it's a kids bed and blanket so it would be perfectly fine to cover the length of a small kids body, just in the placement of the art around the walls and the incorrectly layed blanket they tell you a story about who owns that room and who has made that hell into their home with their own art on the walls and teddy on the bed.

You can tell that the kid made the Hell into their home and not the other way around btw if you see the painting of the girl holding the monsters hands, the white paint covers over the dirt marks on the wall, meaning that was painted on there after the room was destroyed already.

Like I said amazing attention to detail for a room where other games would just CTRL C and CTRL [ruined room 4] and insert the kid posters on the wall of it.

Pillow visible next to bed also and slightly underneath it, suggesting times spent sleeping hiding under there aided by the blanket being the other way around so as to shield the sides of the bed from view.

I'd call Jim Sterlings 2/10 horse shit based on the effort gone into 1 room lol, a 2/10 game is something which doesn't work, a free flash game on your phone which installs a virus after 5 levels....


Sorry again for gushing over a room!



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

I'm digging the campaign so far. Bit of an abundance of weapons and "stuff" to go and search for to collect, but otherwise fun and looks stunning. Bit hesitant to dive into the competitive multiplayer stuff as of yet, especially after my buddy has been saying how horrid the spawns/server connections have to to kick things off. Will probably wait for the dust to settle and find my bearings before devling too much into multi, though would like to try Escape and Horde soon at least.

Yeah I'm also shocked at the deal I landed w/Game Pass ultimate. I lucked out and picked up a year of XBL Gold back in like February, but Microsoft just merged that w/Game Pass plus tacked on a few extra months for some reason after I bought the first month for a dollar.. So basically I have access to live Gold + all these games until April for like $51. Granted like 90% of them I couldn't care less about but even w/that 10% that's like 12-15 games that interest me. Gears, Forza Horizon 4, Shadow of War, Tomb Raider, Just Cause 4, RE4/5, Battle Chasers, etc..

Great post. I just have to say Sterling's scorescor a joke. He loved the game and said almost nothing but good things about it. At the end he said "But I hate Microsoft so I couldn't possibly give it more than a 2/10."

I thought it was funny.

I was going to say the same thing. Jim was only joking about the 2/10. 



@d21lewis @Azzanation ah okay, when I seen you wrote that score I didn't even click the video, that is the kinda thing which some sites do for attention and clicks, just as long as the jimquisition scores don't go onto metacritic because I know they have taken their submissions before on some titles.

I'm so anti click bait that I didn't watching a STIRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRDUST video :o shocking to myself, love Jim hate clickbait.

Funny that not even a metacritic thread was made.

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.

That was a very interesting video. Again, nothing against 5, but that really shows how good Gears 2 was.

How has it hurt them? Their policy has people like me paying for their games now, whereas in the past I wasn't. They weren't making money off their hardware or software from me. Now they are making money off their software. 

And even if that wasn't the case, hardly any profit come from hardware sales, many times they are losses actually.
