Everytime I play horde on Gears5 it’s one of the most boring times ever. I can say the same for escape mode although in all honesty I have never even tried escape bc I am not even 1% interested in it at all. It looks incredibly boring. Same as Gears4, when it came out I flocked to horde hoping to see new silverbacks, new fortifications, new enemies etc. The enemies sucked, the gameplay felt like it was no where near 60fps, and the fortifications were virtually non existent.
Gears 3 had by far the best horde experience. The character and boss diversity was too notch, the simple aspect of every man for themselves no roles that have you feeling stuck doing or not being able to do certain things. The simple fact that everyone had access to all the fortifications, yet each player had to rank them up in order to unlock the upgrades made it extremely fun helping out the lower skilled players.
The silverback, sniper/mortar /hammer strikes were more fun than any ability/perk in Gears5. Mainly the upgraded silverback, only one player could get one per match and to be that player saving up and racing for the silverback…once you got it, MVP every round. It sucked when you would buy it and someone else stole it though.
Whether you really enjoy horde over the past 2 games or not, one thing that is abundantly certain is that both games have not head and shoulders surpassed the previous experiences…and this is something I really want the Gears of War franchise to try and achieve going into the future.
Gears5 has regressed more than pro-gressed from 4 to 5.
