Average User Score: 5.9Mar 1, 2014This game is much better than I was expecting. (I haven't played the old ones)
Graphics looks good but they don't feel next-gen. Frame rate drops in open areas and is not fluid, which is bad for a game that doesn't look truly next-gen.
Feeling of being a thief is good. Dialogues are good too. The bow is not fun to use, it feel unpolished.… Expand
Average User Score: 6.6Nov 24, 2013I had pre-ordered this game only because I've read that the TIME LIMIT would be removed. I was deeply disappointed to see that it hasn't been removed but just tune down. To me, having this open world game with tons of collectibles, side content, challenges, etc, with a time limit is just an aberration. It's like saying to the player; yes you can do all this fun stuff, but don't do it or you're game over. Otherwise this is a good game, with bad design decision. Next time I'll pass.… Expand
Average User Score: 5.3Mar 23, 2013First, I played all Gears since the first one, multiplayer matches and completed campaign multiples times.
This one fell very "meh" to me. I would not recommend it for long time Gears fans.
Theses are the reasons why I gave it a 6.
1 -Changes of controls (Seriously!?, you can't change gears controls!!!).
2 -Only 2 weapons at a time (They removed pistols. What?!).
3 -Campaign feel like a bunch of "challenges missions" separated by boring splash screens.
4 -Multiplayer does not fell like gears anymore. (Where are the locusts, teams death match became humans vs humans?!...).
5 -Graphics are weaker than previous titles. (Mostly lighting).
6 -Class system for multiplayer does not make sense.
1 +Story has some good ideas but badly executed.
2 +Overun mode is pretty fun.
Overall, pretty disappointed. It reminds me when I stopped caring about Call of duty...… Expand
