a major criticism of the past gears games was how super macho and big/cartoony the characters looked.
I really like the new look, makes it more believable.

So people have to look metro in order to be believable??? 

Rubbish. What next,  Eddie Redmayne would make a great Terminator or Rambo?

These guys look like generic Borderlands/ Guardians of the Galaxy type clowns. Not feeling it one bit. 

...just saying it was a common criticism.    

It's a new studio.  Maybe they just want to carve out a new set of models that looked a bit more grounded in reality for their characters in order to better match the environments and world building the game expresses.  And I honestly don't know how to classify something as generic, do you?  Do you have certian qualifications or standards that a certain character model has to not possess to be qualified as generic?  So long as the characters have a good story to tell with great performances, I'm all in.  

Cool if you don't dig it though.  Different tastes, different opinions.  Nothing wrong with that.

Don't know why, but they send me good vibes! They look like fun and interesting characters. I never played a Gears of War before, but I'm definitely interested in this new one... hopefully MS have a good deal/bundle when this game drops, or during holidays. <3

I'm with you. I love the new look and I like that they're keeping it looking modern. The space marine look worked in 2006, but the franchise needed a new look and so far, it's getting it!


I like the look of the characters. It still has a gears feel, but more realistic.

hmmm okay will reserve judgment until i see more...don't like the main characters look tho
