Forums - Gaming Discussion - Gears 5 released?

I'm honestly surprised, I just now found out it even released by browsing a random rabbit hole on gamefaqs. I have not looked it up, so I wanna keep this old school. What do you all think of it? I don't care about a metacritic score or "major sites" opinions since they aren't even gamers working there.

Just curious is all. (sorry, I've been playing tons of PSO2 on my PS4 and have lost contact with most of gaming news. Besides big news like Shenmue 3 and Last of Us.

EDIT: OH and Death Stranding! OMG Can't wait!

It's really good.

For me it is one of the best if not the best Microsoft game this generation. I know that isn't saying much as Forza is really the only franchise from Microsoft that has kept its high quality this generation. Gears 5 feels like a return to the Xbox 360 days. I am hoping Microsoft can keep it up with Halo Infinite and for future releases. The extra year of development for Gears 5 helped expand the scope of the game with some open world areas.

Get on Gears 5 if you're a fan of the series, or even shooters for that matter. Awesome game.

Nice game I heard so far, but beware of microtransactions ...

Great game. I mostly only play campaign mode on any Gears, though. Maybe a little horde mode. It's right up there with Gears 1-3 in terms of awesomeness. Lots of surprises and gameplay tweaks to keep things fresh, too.

What do you expect? It's the usual bland whack-a-mole gameplay.
