    Doesn't improve upon Gears 4 but doesn't chip away either

    Gears 4 opened the door for the second Gears trilogy and there was a lot of good going for it. JD was shaping up to be a quality lead character. The Swarm was an interesting, new enemy. And when all was said and done, It... Read Full Review
