Video Games, “Gears 5” Surprises Everyone

After more than a year of military occupation of the consoles by Fortnite, the video game Gears 5 succeeded in removing the most played titles on Xbox from the top of the ranking. The Xbox exclusive has accomplished the feat. Still, the last game of the franchise that sold 25 million copies didn’t start as they say with the favors of the forecast. Too many ups and downs of the third-person shooter invented in 2006 by the unforgettable “CliffyB” Bleszinski, he showed off the last game-designer-rock of his generation. Amazingly instead The Coalition, the studio that took the development hand, brought home a contemporary and colorful, cruel and surreal game, bringing the squat and square-headed astronauts in 2019 without losing all the good that had been done.

History. Let’s forget about the forgettable JD, son of Marcus Fenix ​​and protagonist of Gears of War 4. Leading the team comes a woman, Kait Diaz who is a breath of fresh air even if she doesn’t leave her mark in sympathy. In fact, an emerging non-protaganist character is the Jack robot which effectively becomes a member of the team and can be played in cooperative mode. The plot is not very original. We find the swarm and the locusts, as it should be. We will also review Marcus Fenix, JD Fenix ​​and Delmont Walk. But waiting for us on the battlefield will not be the dust, the gray and the sadness of the previous seasons, but environments that are finally more open and colorful.

The gameplay. Don’t fool yourself too much. You will spend most of your time hiding behind walls and pillars, waiting for the chance to shoot. And don’t trust what’s written on the sites:. it’s not an open world, it’s not The Lengend of Zelda, it’s more God of War, with a series of adventures to freely access. This being the case, the single player campaign is pleasant, but it is a curtain. The multiplayer sector is more substantial in both PvP and PvE. In the first case to report there is the Arcade Deathmatch mode. Five against five, the first to reach fifty kills per team wins. Then there is the Escape mode, a fight against time by defeating enemies and hunting for ammunition.

The mode is playable by three players simultaneously and has role-playing elements that do not spoil.

What we liked. Gears 5 runs in 4K and stable 60fps. So it’s spectacular. The online sector is very rich, with the right friends and the right passion for the chainsaw you get great satisfaction.
