    I have no hesitation in naming Gears 5 on Xbox One as a triumph. The story is amazing, the multiplayer works perfectly, and Horde and Escape are the cherries on the cake.

    With its greatly improved Campaign, many multiplayer modes and customization options, Gears 5 is the most varied, complete and deep experience ever for the franchise. The Coalition managed to improve the game adding many new ingredients, yet keeping it faithful to its origins, and with an astounding technical implementation. A game every Xbox owner should definitely play.

    The gameplay while familiar has been tweaked and the level design is easily one of the best created worlds on a console, especially seeing it on 4K on the Xbox One X.

    Gears 5 is still the same game it has always been, but in Katie it finds a fresh, new character with a more intriguing story.

    The Gears 5 singleplayer is better than any in the Gears of War series has ever been, with a stunningly beautiful, spectacular and (emotionally) satisfying campaign. Too bad the multiplayer part of the game hasn't been improved as much, making it only a slight disappointment. But on a whole this is a seriously fun and complete rated M for Mature shooter package.

    The Coalition has achieved a lot with Gears 5. The writing and action often rivals the best moments in the series, even surpassing its predecessors at times. The overall package is the most robust Gears has ever seen. But, the big structural alteration feels like an unequivocal misstep. Gears 5 is a rousing success, but it could've done without the needless change.

    Gears 5 survives on its solid cover shooting gameplay and a campaign that isn't afraid to pose difficult questions about problematic topics. But the largely stagnant Horde mode and general mess of an Escape mode really pull the sequel back from being a bold step forward.

Its also fun to play, the story and the characters are awesome too... Definitely, for me, this is a must-have, specially on PC. Online is so deep with a lot of options and game modes, the servers are really quick and the coop and PVP experiences are so enjoyable. Expand
