GSY Video Xbox Series X PC Xbox One

Our many recent attempts at covering less high profile games having remained vain apparently, we're back with what is now a AAA oldie, hoping that maybe it will draw your attention a bit more so you feel like leaving a comment. Because we don't have an Xbox Series X, the only way we can show you what the next gen patch of Gears 5 will look like is to use the PC version all maxed out with a pinch of HDR to make it shine even more. The Coalition's title may be uneven in terms of graphics (the second open area disappointed us greatly) and a bit dated when it comes to certain aspects of its gameplay (why the A button is still used for running is beyond us), there is no denying that it is a fiendishly efficient third person shooter. We're very curious to see what the developers will do with the franchise on the next Xbox whose hardware is more than competent to blow our minds.

Truthbomb. Great heights, uneven with lows.

 and a bit dated when it comes to certain aspects of its gameplay (why the A button is still used for running is beyond us), 

- Hell no, thumbstick click can die in a dumpster fire.

Too bad coalition is stuck with the Gears world. all its juice has been long gone milked in everyway possible from a creative point that makes sense. Just like Killzone and every other IP where the story/characters are just expected noise inbetween the killing loop.

I was a fan of Gears 1 back then but playing Gears 5 and seeing nothing has really changed after all this time except graphics I just got bored real quick after two chapters and quit

Gears 5 is not even the best of UE (before jumping to the possibilities of "next gen") example on current gen, even on PC with max settings. Jedi fallen and the latest Gotham Knights are much better presentations, and there is still room for more in terms of raw power being utilized of the PS4/XBone.

Yeah it is pretty uneven visually. I am towards the end of the second act, and the mountainous landscape is pretty poly starved.

It doesn't matter the performance (Even though they all 60fps on PC), as I was referring to the fidelity variation between the titles on all platforms, not how smoothly it runs.

Have you not read my comment? I'm comparing art with art, regardless to the performance. 60fps will not make Gears 5 artistically more impressive than the titles mentioned.

Isn't the Xbox version supposed to have Global Illumination exclusive to it? I've seen some very recent screenshots where you can see the difference. I look forward to comparing it to my PC version.

    Melmoth for games not exporting data, you can still use audio as input on the jetseat, but i haven't tried that yet and don't know how well it works. (2 Days ago)

  • Melmoth

    Melmoth while the jetseat uses telemetry from the games that support exporting it, and has 6-8 zones of vibration/feedback. so you get much more nuansed and adjustable feedback (2 Days ago)

  • Melmoth

    Melmoth @toelessfoot: I don't have any experience with the buttkicker, but from what i understand it's just using game-audio as input, and is 1 large shaker/motor, so it won't be direction-specific feedback (2 Days ago)
