    Visually stunning when maxed out, Gears 5 for PC comes with a very solid campaign and lots of exciting multiplayer modes that will keep you entertained for a long, long time.

    Much like its iconic Lancer Assault Rifle, Gears 5 functions as perfectly as it was designed. The developers threw on a chainsaw of character, narrative, and content to make an over-the-top, thrilling experience from start to finish. Gears 5 is a badass game, and you'll come away feeling more badass than the legendary Marcus himself.

    No matter which mode you approach it from, Gears 5 is an incredibly fun and polished game.

    Gears 5 plays around with the formula a bit, but it's still at its best when it's just being a solid-ass Gears of War game.

    It's just another Gears game, but a more charismatic protagonist and a few experimental mechanics at least give the series a more firm footing going forward.

    Familiarly solid cover shooting with the occasional surprise. It’s fitting The Coalition has opted to simply call the latest game ‘Gears’, because mostly, it’s just going through the motions.

    TLDR; Overall positive with a few negatives. Only buy on sale, ultimate edition content is not worth it and is bad (for PvE content).TLDR; Overall positive with a few negatives. Only buy on sale, ultimate edition content is not worth it and is bad (for PvE content).

    Campaign:

    + Can all be done in co-op
    + Can pick from characters to play
    + Has collectables / secrets

    - Empty open world which feels like mostly filler. Doesn't feel like it belongs
    - Experienced multiple crashes only in campaign
    - Meh story. Not great but not bad

    Overall game:

    + A lot of video settings
    + Good choice of accessibility settings
    + Cross play with XB1
    + Regular good updates
    + Hundreds of hours of potential content
    + Lots of achievements
    // Uses Xbox Live
    // Microtransactions exist
    // Has a system similar to a battlepass
    - Clunky movement and controls. Even after getting used to them and playing for 150+ hours, feels clunky
    - Not the prettiest game
    - Some characters in PvE are just plain bad (namely the Terminator pack ones)
    - Game has so many anger inducing wtf moments where you will get instantly killed or something doesn't work properly

    I mainly bought the game for Horde and Escape which I really enjoy, and have put a lot more hours in than I was expecting.
    The developers regularly update the game, adding new maps, characters and balance changes (pretty much all buffs)
    Also recently added a new currency you can earn in-game quite easily that you can use in the store for cosmetics.

    I would recommend buying this game on sale if you wanted to mostly play Horde or escape with a little of versus or campaign on the side. Bonus points to buy it if you wanted to play the campaign in co-op!

    I would have enjoyed this game if it wasn't so buggy and broken. Got to the point where it won't load my save anymore in the final act. VeryI would have enjoyed this game if it wasn't so buggy and broken. Got to the point where it won't load my save anymore in the final act. Very annoying. Your mileage may vary but for me, not being able to finish it means I can't give it any score, let alone a good one. Expand
