So it’s been a week or so since I’ve played Gears 5. I didnt think the flow of game play could be any worse, boy was I wrong. So campy and slow it’s no longer fun it’s just grueling. It’s a task and not a game.
With the launch of OP 2 where they advertise new shiny things hoping to captivate people who are lured in by shiny new objects. Yet ignore the core problem that the game is a boring slow paced slog. For a shooter this game is very uneventful.
However not a word or on work being done on fixing the core game. They are sticking to a stupid time table which does not enhance the game play. Usually when studios are faced with a rapidly declining player base they prioritize fixing the core issues. Not TC, keep pushing out skins and show what they are giving you to “earn.” if the core game sucks all the skins in the world are not going to fix the glaring problems with this game.
I for one am sick of trying to help TC with criticisms on the game in hope they push it forward. They are tone deaf developers and are arrogant. They have not humbly come forward and shown anything that shows they are taking any of this seriously and think they know best. What they “thought” is what put this game in the position it is in. They dont know what is best for the game and ignore the feed back. Hell it took them how many months to prototype the omen? If this game is pulled from the gutter it is not going to be any time soon. It seems as if it is a lost cause and they are going to push cosmetics in hopes to milk the remaining playerbase in hopes to make this disaster profitable. That is clearly where thier priorities lie.
Maybe it’s a MS problem and the only way to show MS that this is not the way to manage a game is to just have it die unfortunately. TC’s management needs an overhaul because it’s almost as if they have no idea what they are doing. Is the management former EA executives? because this is pretty bad.
Well to wrap up my rant, I hope for the rest of you that the game shapes up. I hope that I will be able to revisit this game and forget the abomination this game was.
