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.
Hivebusters doesn’t have the variety or world-building of the core Gears games, and doesn't take any chances along the way, but is a fun alternative that I wouldn’t mind seeing more of. It’s nice to get to know more of the characters in this universe, one of whom flips double middle fingers in the face of danger, which may be the most Gears of War thing I’ve ever seen.
Gears 5 Hivebusters is a worthy expansion for this beloved franchise. Highlighting a new squad of characters fighting in this war while connecting them to the core game. It doesn't rely on it and allows Keegan, Mac, and Lahni to stand on their own.
