1JaxonHTue 21st Apr 2020 Posted in the N-Life Xbox thread but figured this might be a more suitable place for discussion. I just played like 7 hours of Gears of War 5 campaign in online co-op with my brother. Thoughts This is easily one of the most amazing exclusives I’ve played all generation. I can’t believe how good this game is! Yet so few people talked about it when it released? Gears has always been good, but this game is on another level. It’s unbelievable. Previous Gears games were great- I played a fair bit of Gears Ultimate and Gears 4. Solid 9/10 games. But I’m struggling to find a reason Gears 5 isn’t a 10/10. I just can’t find any reason to knock this game. It’s near flawless in every single way. And it’s definitely one of the best looking games I’ve ever seen. 2160p 60fps Ultra Settings? This game isn’t messing around. I’ve always admired the fact Gears of War is designed ground up to include co-op in the single player campaign, both local splitscreen and Online. And that’s not even including the four other modes, which, horde mode is, of course, a classic. But man, exploration in this game is so addictive. The gun play is absolutely phenomenal (on PC, with gyro in the controller mapped to the mouse for aiming of course, because I have to have my gyro aiming). I wasn’t originally going to preorder Gears Tactics, but after tonight, it’s a day one buy. I’m into it. edit Also, I should mention how awesome it is this game allows cross play. My brother played on the Xbox One X while I played on PC. Amazing. I suppose if there was one nitpick I could find it’s the fact that there was no voice chat allowed for campaign co-op. At least that I could find. I know it allows voice chat for other modes, and it allows keyboard chat for the campaign. But no voice chat. I guess that makes sense though because there are cut scenes and a lot of dialogue.
