Gears of More
26 November 2016 | by residentgrigoSee all my reviews

Judgment suffered a somewhat incomprehensible fan backlash, as it was "too same", but I liked the no-nonsense approach to the campaign and story. I love the 1st revolutionary GoW entry and the overall trilogy had great gameplay but the narratives and presentation were utterly cringeworthy. The Coalition mostly followed Judgment here and they gave me another straightforward campaign with little fluff, besides the last 2 chapters (the game randomly turns into Bayformers!). Even the evil lizard people were replaced by… other lizard people. Another over the top, but less tone deaf, black bro-friend is featured, another barely there romance is present and so on. Halo 4 was a better and way bigger step forward by a new studio, yet the even more radical Halo 5 then nearly fell off a cliff, so I wouldn't mind another "meat and potatoes" follow-up. The more colorful visuals are a noteworthy positive too, the game is actually more beautiful than it first seems, but more enemy variety (robots get introduced and then mostly disappear after 1,5 hours) and much better new guns will be needed next time. The multiplayer is also exactly what one would think it is. 8/10
