Gears Of War 4

Back To Square One
by Andrew Reiner
Concept:

New developer. New heroes. New enemies. The same Gears of War


Graphics:

Heightened weather effects and destruction produce a continual stream of awesome visuals to soak in. The new enemy types are also beautifully animated. The game even offers enhancements when viewed on a 4K TV


Sound:

The "dude-bro" dialogue is subdued and replaced by legitimately humorous banter. The soundtrack is once again thumping, and the satisfying guitar chord is back to signify the conclusion of each combat encounter


Playability:

Seek cover, pop up, and shoot. Gears of War's combat hasn't changed, but the toys you can play with pack more of a punch - which is needed, given how aggressive the enemies are


Entertainment:

The campaign is too familiar at times, but the gameplay is top notch. All multiplayer modes showcase high levels of depth and reasons to come back


Replay:

High

Gears of War 4 is every bit as enjoyable as the series' past iterations, but isn't the fresh start you might think it is.

The fourth wall is nearly broken in Gears of War 4's opening moments when a news reporter looks into the camera, and says "We're back." This dialogue is meant to elicit excitement from fans, but is somewhat of a misleading message, since Gears of War 4 is developed by a new studio, introduces new heroes, a new threat, new weapons, and has consistently been pitched as a "new saga."

Before developer The Coalition shows us how different its vision is,Gears of War 4 begins with a clever playable prologue that walks us through the key battles that shaped Sera and the series.

Through this tightly scripted introduction, The Coalition does a fantastic job of giving players a true sense of closure while establishing the need for the story to head in a different direction. Set 25 years after the Imulsion Countermeasure (which destroyed all of the Locust and Lambent nests), we meet new protagonists JD Fenix, Kait Diaz, and Del Walker on a sunny and colorful hillside. The series' trademark "destroyed beauty" approach to art design is nowhere to be found; it's just beautiful. The sequence even concludes with the trio stopping to witness a butterfly being born from its cocoon. The takeaway from this moment is that something ugly can eventually become beautiful and dynamic.

After this peculiar moment, which seems at the time to be more of a commentary on the series than anything in the game, The Coalition doubles down on its decision to take Gears of War 4 in a different direction. The first act is vibrant, free of blood and guts, and more about the political climate of the world. We learn JD and his crew have shunned the Coalition of Ordered Governments (COG) to live as outsiders. This initial story hook has a Robin Hood vibe, and begins with JD trying to steal a prized piece of technology from within COG city walls.
