Game Review: Gears Of War 5

By: Neo Choplosky/sophomore writer

Gears of War is a game series made by EPIC Games that, in my opinion, is one of the best games this company has created. Gears of War 5 is a classic middle chapter in the series. It picks up where Gears of War 4 left off: the new Delta squad bracing for war with the Swarm. The game’s new hero, Kait Diaz, is still reeling from unresolved issues around her mother’s death and some lingering questions about her family tree. Gears 5 is divided into four acts. Two of these acts more or less, play out like every other Gears game: you’re moving along a linear path that expands into larger areas that play host to the series’s uniquely muscular take on cover-based combat. A lot of time is spent hiding behind walls and pillars, waiting for a chance to get shots off.

Gears of War has sidequests now. They’re generally quick hits with a minimal story, but they offer a little extra challenge and allow you to get a quick, digestible bite of the campaign. It’s a lot easier to play a side mission than just play 20 minutes of a story mission, as they all tend to be very long, demanding affairs.

Gears 5’s captivating storytelling, solid mechanics, and excellent graphics far outweigh this merely average multiplayer modes. It’s an easy recommendation for longtime players of the Gears of War series and newcomers alike.
