    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.

    This is an intense blockbuster which delivers its brutal action just as advertised.

    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.

    Gears 5 has the most game types out of any Gears game before it. If you want to be a competitive player you have all the ranked matches, or ifGears 5 has the most game types out of any Gears game before it. If you want to be a competitive player you have all the ranked matches, or if you are a casual you have arcade and quick play, if you are big into coop you have campaign, horse, and escape. They also made a map editor so we will be getting new maps from the community all year long. Gears 5 is great in my opinion because it feels like a gears game unlike judgement but bring in new things into it to make it feel like a refreshed gears game. I'm a big believer if something isn't broken no need to fix it. Expand

What I was more surprised with, was the history's drama and how attentive they were in regards to the history and the character development. The scenarios were also different enough to feel the difference from each chapter. Amazing game, I cant wait for the 6! Expand

    Понравилась одиночная компания. Участвовать в этом эпичном приключении было просто незабываемо. Взрывы, пафос и хорошая история. В историюПонравилась одиночная компания. Участвовать в этом эпичном приключении было просто незабываемо. Взрывы, пафос и хорошая история. В историю добавили моральный выбор и теперь от вас зависит какая концовка ждет мир которому вы оказываете свои геройские услуги. С этой тенденцией делать компании все меньше и примитивней - это почти идеал для шутера с укрытиями. Удовольствие от игры получаешь огромное.
    Графика получилось отменной. Unrial Engine выдаёт просто ультраклассную картинку без всякой трассировки лучей или еще чего-нибудь супер новомодного. Но все красиво, сочно, прекрасно детализировано, гейм-дизайн уровней на высоте. И вообще видна ручная и кропотливая работа создателей.
    Очень понравился интерфейс. Простой, даже можно сказать, минималистичный, при этом информативный.
    Кто любит хорошие одиночные компании в шутерах, рекомендую к ознакомлению.

    What a waste ... I'm a longtime fan of the series. And the fourth part was good and promising, but this is a turn in the completely wrongWhat a waste ... I'm a longtime fan of the series. And the fourth part was good and promising, but this is a turn in the completely wrong direction.
    Yes, graphically it is excellent, but everything else is terrible. Characters do not cause any sympathy. They are not consistent, flat and boring. You cannot create a drama if a player does not give a damn about its participants.
    Fights are hellishly boring.
    Too many one-shots out of nowhere and too little enemy variety. There are a lot of enemies who are almost not dangerous, but require a long and tedious shooting at one point on their ass or somewhere else.
    Constant babysitting with ai companions, plus one-shots, plus checkpoints, plus boring shooting at large enemies at one point and you get at times the most incredibly hellishly boring repetitive gameplay.
    Open arenas are pointless timewasters.
    And oh god, hire good writers please.
     What is this miserable cliched “Luke I'm Your Father” plot? You destroy plot potentials for locusts! They could have had a centuries-old history, and now they have nothing.
    And, I laughed to the pain in my stomach over the choice that you suddenly give me. I see what you did here. You collect statistics and try to understand whether it is possible to bury old gears or fans are not yet ready to swallow your pathetic new gears. I'm not on your side on this

    Months in and still a train wreck of glitches and crashes. The shift from a great game into some micro-transaction nonsense really took awayMonths in and still a train wreck of glitches and crashes. The shift from a great game into some micro-transaction nonsense really took away from the whole point of the series. I can not, in good conscienceless, suggest this game if you enjoyed the previous versions. Just remember the good games and leave this mosquito of a wallet drainer out in the cold where it can die an inglorious death. For a franchise that started with a bang, this should be its whimper like death until better developers who want to make a great game over a quick buck can take the reigns. Expand
