Gears of war is my favorite game series on the Xbox and while i love all its games including this one i have to say that while Gears 5 is a great game it just isn’t as great or memorable as the original trilogy.
This game is a improvement to GoW 4 with a better story and main character and the inclusion of assassinations and cool new abilities like freeze bomb and invisibility is a great thing i just don’t feel like that a open world is the right thing for this series.
So in the end i have to say that while Gears 5 is a great addition to the series it’s not the best game in the series, maybe the third best.
This game is very different from the first person shooters that I usually play but after I gave it a try it showed that while this is a good game it quickly felt like one has to play in co op with others to get the real experience and sadly I didn't get that.
The gameplay is good and pretty engaging at times and the weapons for the most very useful but I won't try and play this game again any time soon. The lack of a real engaging story was the biggest dissapointment for me but besides that it is a decent shooter game if you like to play with friends instead of solo.
