The Gears of War series has been uncompromising in its apocalyptic vision, holding the line with the same cover-based shooting, gruff armor-clad heroes, and wealth of multiplayer modes in all of its installments. You know exactly what you are getting from each game, and that’s a great thing. Gears 5 continues this tradition, and is every bit as fun as it is familiar. The gunplay feels somewhat antiquated, especially when the Lancer’s chainsaw roars to life again, but that doesn’t stop The Coalition from delivering some of the series’ biggest and most intense firefights. When the conflicts escalate, look out – Gears has never been better.
More of the Gears you know, but done up in big and dramatic ways. The open-world sequences don’t work, but making the robot helper more useful is a game-changer
That larger-than-life body armor is the same, but the lighting and atmospheric conditions are eye-popping
Along with familiar character voices returning, the new characters are beautifully brought to life by their actors
The gunplay and cover mechanics remain exceptional, but the vehicular segments just don’t deliver much excitement
Gears 5 delivers plenty of excitement in its encounters and story, and offers nearly endless thrills in its excellently crafted multiplayer experiences
