Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Gears of War - Metacritic (currently 85)

I wasn't the biggest fan of Gears of War 4 storywise, but I did enjoy playing it co-op with my girlfriend. I can't seem to find anywhere, but does anyone know if Gears 5 is being added to Game Pass for PC? Because if so that'll tempt me to give it a try, since one thing I've always enjoyed about the Gears of War games is the multiplayer... and co-op (Which... is also multiplayer, so not sure why I'm saying this lol). Otherwise I'll be waiting for it to come down in price before giving it a go. It definitely looks better than the previous game from what I've seen anyway, so I'm still interested, just on the fence at the moment, lol.

Yes. Gears 5 is on Game Pass for PC! Goes live tomorrow (or midnight tonight, depending on where you are). If you have Game Pass Ultimate, you can already play it.

It is being added to GamePass for PC. I have GamePass Ultimate and have been playing it on PC for a few days since Ultimate subscribers got access to the game 4 days prior to release. The campaign in 5 is better than 4 from what I've played so far.

There's a weird trend with Xbox's system sellers and low-to-mid 80s Metacritic scores. Halo MCC, Guardians, Gears Ultimate Edition, 4, and now 5.

I expect Xbox exclusives to get modest scores. I think its partly because MS just doesn't make the type of games critics wants. I'm not even sure why Forza Horizon scores as well as it does versus a Gears game.

Meanwhile the games that often score in the 90s are generally too story driven for my taste or get praise for being artsy.

With that said, games that score in the 80s can still be very notable. They just aren't something critics are raving about, while consumers might.

Same here, my man.

I'm not an Xbox guy, but I can admit that there's been a clear bias against their major titles since the XB1's launch. I hate to see it. You'd expect the media to call it down the middle and give credit where it's due, but nah.

Xbox have made some pretty bizarre moves over the past six years, but when they do it right, they do it right. Gears 5 deserves a higher score. Same with Halo 5. Not that 85/86 is anything to snort at mind you!

Still waiting one more day for the official release.

Bit disappointed in the game after seeing Crowbat's evidence video though.

Please play it. Then tell me if you think that video is accurate. If possible, use headphones or a good sound sound system. I'd love you hear your impressions.



Twitter: @d21lewis  --I'll add you if you add me!!

I've been playing the last few days and the campaign is definitely one of the best. I'll play the horde and multiplayer after im done with the story.



Heard a lot of positivity around this release. Watched both the DF vids, definitely have to pick it sometime.



Made a bet with LipeJJ and HylianYoshi that the XB1 will reach 30 million before Wii U reaches 15 million. Loser has to get avatar picked by winner for 6 months (or if I lose, either 6 months avatar control for both Lipe and Hylian, or my patrick avatar comes back forever).

Yep. I don't own Xbox and the type of IP they have isn't my favorite, but it is great that they do good games so people that like these type of games can enjoy it. My brother and some friends will certainly have a blast with Gears 5.
