The game is actually pretty fun. There are a lot of kneejerk reactions to this game where people are saying it's awful or they claim to be a fan of the series and that's all just trying to paint the narrative that they actually were a fan. This post above that says awful game has clearly never played a Gears game before in their life if they think this game is nothing like Gears 1, or any other games in general. Gears 1 is my favorite, 2 was alright, 3 was alright, but Judgment's MP was awful but the story was decent in my opinion. Gears 4 comes really close to delivering everything Gears 1 did, but better in a lot of way. You have great cutscenes that add depth, exposition, and foreshadowing for characters and the plot. Great graphics (The game is on Unreal 4 Engine). The audio is really good, and the multiplayer is awesome, and addictive. A lot of people are mad because there are Microtransactions regarding multiplayer, so they are going out of their way to make up a bunch of bs to downvote the game. The microtransactions are only for cosmetic items, and aren't for anything that provides an advantage of anyone as far as competitive gameplay goes. There are points you get in the game, kind of like Halo 5's REQ points, and you can use those to buy "Packs" much like Halo 5's REQ packs. Almost all of the packs are purchasable with the free in-game currency you earn by playing it. You can also breakdown (scrap) the items you earn that you don't want, so you can get Scrap points and use that to buy some characters for Multiplayer, Gun Skins, etc. This isn't the best game I've ever played, but it's far from the worst one in the series. I'd honestly give the game a 9/10, and can't understand anyone who thinks it's below that. The story is great, the graphics are good, the music is great, as is the Co-Op experience, and all the modes for multiplayer. Tons of replayability, and you get a lot of bang for your buck. This is easily the BEST or second best game that Xbox has put out this generation, next to Forza Horizon 3.
