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.

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

It does seem a trend that happened this gen, and not just with Gears, but world immersion has taken the back seat in some franchises. Crowbcat made a video of Dead Rising 4 vs the OG Dead Rising, both of which take place in a mall, but in the original one there is so much interaction with the environment that is completely gone in the new one. I hope this trend stops next gen.

Ignore the haters. Crackdown 3 and Dead Rising 4 this is not.

Gears 5 is the type of exclusive Microsoft has been desperately in need of for some time now. The campaign has gone above and beyond any of the Gears titles I've played, and is far better than the Coalition's last two efforts.

I think the lack of Gears threads here can be chalked up to the majority of the sites members being Nintendo, Playstation and PC gamers, and the fact that there are a couple of members who generally hate all things Xbox, quality not withstanding.

If you own an Xbox, I highly recommend this title.

And thus far, I have not encountered any BS loot box shenanigans, or even extreme microtransaction crap like one would expect from Moneysoft. It's like they really wanted this one to succeed.

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

it looks good but it has those washed out colors typical from last gen unreal engine, maibe its the screenshots, nothing in here scream OMGAHD BEST LOOKING GAME EVER like digital foundry is pushing. Uncharteded released ages ago and i think looks far better than this. But maibe its just the screenshots and the game does looks indeed mindblowing in 4k on a tv , looking at it live.



 

The game is very fun. I'm really enjoying it.

I would say personally that the game looks much better than these screen shots on my OLED TV.  Nothing looks washed out at all but very vibrant and this is the XOneX version.  From what I have read concerning the PC version you can expect it to looks markedly better in all areas.  Either way after playing pretty much every console exclusive on PS4 and Xbox, Gears is definitely at the top and probably one of the best HDR games on the market.

I have the game on both. HDR is better implemented on the X (PC still struggles a bit here), but the overall detail is considerably superior on PC (particularly because we can install an Ultra Texture pack). 

Regardless, while I'm playing, nothing looks washed out on either platform.



                                                                                                                                            

Much more colorful than the old Gears games.

What Microsoft games actually have micotransactions there haven't been any lately.  Also the whole uproar about the loot boxes in Forza Motorsports 7 was complete BS since they where completely optional and where bought with in game currency and not via micotransactions.

Gears 2 is an amazing game but can i say something. Gears 5 doesnt need to do half the things Gears 2 does to be a better game.

Gears 5 is a better looking game, offers a wider colour gammet, brings in a openworld, renders 4k @ 60 on the X and PC, has a better narrative than any Gears game before it and the mechanics have been polished up in all aspects. 

This is a game that needs to be played not watched. I say this as iv played and finished all Gears games and its the best one iv played regardless of any cut backs that might be present in the video.

The User Score for Gears 5 speaks for itself. I suggest check it out for yourself, its free on GamePass or return it if unhappy. Nothing to lose giving it a crack.
