Gears 5: Game Review

February 8, 2020 1 By Sebastian Fry


Does the action in Gears 5 go totally ballistic? [shooting & battle sfx] Let’s just say it’s as exciting and engaging
as it is explosive. “We’re hit! May Day! May Day!” This entry in the long-running sci-fi shooter
series follows a team of soldiers fighting for survival against a
swarm of invading creatures. True to the franchise, the combat here is
extremely graphic. Players use guns, missiles, and even chain
saws to kill monsters and humanoid enemies. The result: Severed limbs, gory wounds, and
geysers of blood. That said, the game does have the option to
turn off the gore. Dialogue-wise, expect strong language including
F-bombs and the S-word. “Take on someone your own damn size!” Despite the mature content, this enthralling
game highlights the value of teamwork and sacrifice for the greater good by way
of an epic interactive experience. Common Sense says Gears 5 is a five-star pick
for gamers 18 and up. To read our full review and tell us what you
