Gears 5 gets a failing grade

I was holding out on preordering on steam because I had a feeling this title was going to have some innate problems. After reading the reviews summarizing why the game only has “mixed” reception (54%, which is a failing grade), I have to say I dodged a $60-100 bullet. Technical issues, feature issues, exploitative microtransactions, etc. I’ll be waiting for next year’s steam sale on this one.
