Gears Of War 4

Back To Square One
by Andrew Reiner

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


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


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


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


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



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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from i love this series!!!!! I have been playing GOW ever since the first one came out in 2006,and i am still playing it only on my XBOX one now. gears of war 4 is just as good as the rest, except judgement, which was not that great. until this day, gears of war is one of the best games out there ever.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Shotguns are great It is a great game if you love playing shotguns vs shotguns with long matchmaking. You cant kill with anything else cause the shotgun out kills the other guns no matter what. The graphics and sound is good but bot worth doing anything when you are killed with one git from a shotgun everytime.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Great Addition to the Gears Games Gears of War 4 is a great addition to the past gears games. It has an option for local 2 player co-op, it has horde and versus mode and campaign. It has 4 modes: casual, normal, hardcore and insane all decent to play on. The thing I will say is campaign left a cliff hanger and I cant wait for the next game.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from such an amazing addition to a great series!!! I have always loved the GOW games right from the beginning back in 2006. then came GOW 2 two years later, then GOW 3 in 2011, then GOW:Judgement which was ok in my opinion but not like the rest.Now in 2016 is GOW 4 which pretty much blew me away, with breathtaking visuals and gameplay. you get to play as J.D Fenix, which is Marcus Fenix's son,(of course). the game also features a couple of new weapons to destroy your enemies with, along side your 2 friends:kait and del. overall great addition to the greatest series ever.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A GREAT REBOOT! Nostalgia, new content, new story, and non-stop action. The new world the 4th installment of this franchise paints for you is a beautiful one, riddled with harsh memories,a skewed idea of utopia, and mystery. I never imagined this series to continue, but the coalition aced it with this re-imagined, post- war torn world. Reminding you that nightmares never truly come to an end. PVP and Horde are better than ever with customization, and character classes. As well as new game modes. I guarantee you won't be disappointed with this one!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome online, limited awards Graphics are great. Gameplay is great. Campaign is fun but not as long as I hope. Still sufficient. Online play is smooth and lobby style with bounties and airdrops are awesome. Still not a fully sufficient awarding system for leveling up on multiplayer. Pretty much play for the love of the game, which I still do because the online is fantastic. New game modes are awesome add as well
