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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ultimate Gears Great start for a rebooted series! The gameplay is new with new weapons, modes, and melee animations and abilities. The campaign (though not as focused on as much as multiplayer,) a fresh start for a new trilogy... possibly. However, people are more used to Marcus Fenix and probably like him as a better character than JD, but you can only do your first character once. Multiplayer is great, with all of the things I mentioned in the second sentence. Horde 3.0 mode is great, though not as simple as the previous gears Horde with the classes (I liked it with the same abilities, guns, and ammo,) but it does keep the game moving, new, and interesting. The only thing that I would not give it a 10 out of 10 for is the format. I specifically bought this game to support Gamestop. If my disc gets scratched, I am out of the game. That is no one's fault, but it is nice to be able to redownload it on the Xbox One and Windows 10 (to which I don't have, because I am an Apple person.) Anyway, on the bright side, I can bring it over to a friend's house!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than going to the movies... This is an amazing boost from an already stellar franchise, it brings a human element to the gaming world. these "next gen" games are also appealing because of the story line(s) to the casual onlookers who enjoy a great action flim. it holds the attention of everyone. I'm Hooked!!! Sincerely, Mad 1

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An experience of a lifetime Like the title of this review, Gears of War 4 is an experience of a lifetime and I honestly could not believe what I was seeing once I had finally got this game installed into my limited edition Xbox One S (I got the bundle) and once I saw the graphics of the game for the first time, my mind was blown away beyond belief. It's like watching a move with the most well-designed, and well-detailed graphics that I had ever seen in any game. If there was any game to start with when jumping onto the next-gen consoles, I am so glad that it was this one. Despite the fact that this game wasn't developed by EPIC games, the company, 'The Coalition' did an amazing job of this game and it brings justice to the franchise after 'Gears of War: Judgment' was a big let down to many fans but in my opinion, I just find it to be guilty pleasure game but with this one, it really brings everything back that we loved about Gears of War from the very start. Truth be told, I was against the idea of another installment of the franchise when I think about how Gears of War 3 had one of the most rewarding endings in a video game but once I was I began seeing trailers for this game, I started become interested into it. Once I had started and moved onward into the game, all it did was improve my love for this franchise. It's that awesome and like all the other Gears of War games, the replay value is high.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Gears Yet Gears of War 4 is in my opinion is the best entry into the Gears of War series. The graphics are gorgeous on both Xbox One and PC, the gameplay is tight and very fluid, and the story is tense and interesting to the very end, the multiplayer is better than ever, and Horde 3.0 is an absolute blast in online coop. This may be the best Xbox One exclusive to date and one of the best games this generation.
