Happy Thanksgiving Gears,
I saw Gears 5 is $30 and I am genuinely curious if you guys think its worth $30? If you guys remember some of my previous posts, I haven’t bought it yet because of 4’s problems.
Not baiting or anything, truly curious on what you all who have bought it think. It should be on sale for a little while longer so share your thoughts on if price=value.
Like I said, I’m being for real.
Also fyi: The campaign intrigued me so I watched a playthrough of it so story isn’t a thing driving me to buy it.
Good question. I was going to Gamepass it with the wife next month just to play the campaign together. I’m debating game sharing it for $30 (instead of buying 2 one month game passes) but I’m honestly so disappointed with the VS and Horde that I can’t ever see is playing them, despite the hundreds of hours we both put into Gears 4.
The thing about the game is that as it stands now, it may not be worth it, even at that price, but it really depends on the individual.
If you’re looking to play ranked, know that the system isn’t where it needs to be and it’ll most likely provide you nothing but frustration.
If you’re looking for a game with a lot of content, this may not be it. The game launched with the minimal amount of maps but they added some Gears4 maps to remedy the issue. And the amount of interesting stuff you can unlock by playing only is close to nonexistent. More are coming soon-ish, sure, but right now it’s a bit barebone.
If you live outside of NA, it’s a lost cause. People from EU, AUS and Asia are having trouble finding matches, and if you play PC, regardless of where you live, you’ll have a hard time too. So better make sure you’re playing with friends to try and remedy that issue.
Mechanics wise, they’ve made enough changes to seperate itself from its predecessors, so depending on your playstyle/tastes, the game may be up to par for you or simply an abomination. You can read around the forums to tell which changes are to your liking and which are not.
If I was in your place, I wouldn’t bother as it stands now…
Huge help. Thx. I might just get her a year of gamepass for Christmas then because I know there’s a few games on there she’s been wanting to play. Her Xbox is “home” so it would work out for both based on what you’re saying.
But I’m of the school of thought that believes that any game needs to be judge on its single player campaign and a game must stand on its own feet based on this. I mean, online multiplayer serves could be ghost towns within a few months…
I cannot lie, I enjoyed the campaign, I had serious issues though, achievements were not unlocking, progress not saving, collectables not showing. I believe these have been addressed but I’m waiting for ToD before updating.
Is it worth $30 now ? Yes if the campaign is fixed, but players are having issues with multiplayer and the in game store is not acceptable imo. Hope this helps and Happy Thanksgiving from Scotland.
