Gears of War 4 – First Impressions

With gamers around the world watching E3 this morning, you probably already know that a Demo was given by Microsoft for the most anticipated Gears of War 4. Simply put, it’s impressive.

And yes, the chainsaw is returning. So, don’t worry serial killers.

I believe the demo was presented on the Playstation 4, and was running at a solid 60 frames per second without any issues. Again, the hardcore Gears fans will probably catch all the flaws and what not that I never will. As for protagonists, there was no mention of Marcus Fenix or any returning characters that I know of at least. Please correct me if I’m wrong in the comments below!

Other than that, the gameplay is solid and very reminiscent of the previous installments. Not to mention, the visuals were EXTREMELY impressive, especially putting them side by side with other Gears games. Throughout the demo, I noticed that the developers kept the traditional style of armor and weapons for all us fans, a technique used by Bethesda to show off Fallout 4. The voice acting, I thought, was nothing really to special. It was pretty normal for a Gears of War game. And, again, hardcore fans are more than welcome to disagree with me. You have the right to disagree with me.

Now, I cannot wait for this game to be released. I plan to get my copy on the Playstation 4 along with Fallout 4, Batman: Arkham Knight and Transformers: Devastation. Will you be getting this game? Don’t you want another lash at the chainsaw? Let me know in the comments below!
