    Gears 5: Hivebusters recovers the thug tune of the original trilogy. It is a must.

    Hivebusters shows that even a 3-hour long experience can be a fun and fulfilling one, if done right. The Coalition just showed us that the Gears franchise is in very good hands.

    Hivebusters is a great addition to the story content of Gears 5 on Xbox. The same production values, the same great acting, and (whisper it) a better set of protagonists than Kait and J.D., all add up to make this a must play expansion.

    Packed full of excellent action, blistering combat, a solid cast of characters, and astoundingly beautiful visuals, Gears 5: Hivebusters is unmissable for anyone who considers themselves a fan of the series.

    Gears 5: Hivebusters is everything we ask of a Gears of War: lots of action, frenzy, a simple story, and a level design perfect for gunfights. It has an adjusted duration, yes, but it is enjoyable until the end.

    Even one more hour focused on really telling the story of where Scorpio Squad came from could have made Gears 5: Hivebusters into a far more memorable and substantial DLC. There's easily enough material to even make a full side game, but the expansion feels less like a genuine extension of the Gears universe and more like a way to make players more receptive to playing Escape Mode and purchasing the comic series featuring these characters. At the end of the day, that ethos makes for a disposable expansion that only diehard fans of the franchise or those looking for an Xbox Series X graphical showcase will really get the most out of - though if a player fits that bill, they'll be more than happy with what's on offer here.

Banda sonora y efectos de sonido de 10, jugabilidad perfecta. No puedo creerme que un DLC tenga esta calidad. Supera a la gran mayoría de juegos de 60€. Expand

    Best DLC one could hope for in Gears. Jaw droping, well done. The filmography and cinematography alone make it worth playing.
