I’ve been giving Gears 5 horde a chance, and I admit I wasn’t a fan at first, but it’s growing on me. The character roster is very lacking right now, yeah, but I like playing as Fahz and Marcus. Fahz is the perfect choice for PC players as he’s a pompous ■■■ and requires the best aim you can get by using a mouse. Chainsawing as Marcus is just f’n awesome, as usual. The voiceover says “I could do that all day,” and I really could. The raging scream from John DiMaggio’s bass voice is the ■■■■! RAAGGGGHHHHHHH!!!
A lot of people like playing as an engineer, but not enough people have the Halo engineer it seems because they leave a lot. Double engi games are quite nice, though. I don’t like Sarah Connor, she’s basically a walking advertisement to me, and I’m not a gnasher fan.
I don’t think it’s as bad as people are making it out to be on these forums. The weapon and fabricator restrictions are not that bad. It’s hard to find the weapon you want sometimes, but honestly the weapons that will save your ■■■ are the heavy ones. You can ask people to buy you a lancer and trade. Encourages communication, I guess.
At higher difficulties most people play pretty good. It needs an expanded roster ASAP, which I’m sure they are working on. I haven’t played any versus yet, so I can’t comment on that. I’d probably enjoy it as well because as I said I’m not a gnasher fan.
Also, I will never spend a penny on microtransactions, but I guess I will be paying the gamepass subscription, so they win there, for what it’s worth.
Also, the Halo character says “That one’s for Reach.” I’ve never played Halo besides the first one, so I was wondering what she means by that, if anyone cares to enlighten me.
That’s my feedback on horde mode so far. Thanks for reading.
