Gears of War 4 Earns a Kick-Ass Review From Digital Spy
It has been one of the most important franchises for the Xbox brand over the years, despite the fact that many would say the IP has gone downhill. Could Gears of War 4, with a fresh development team, rejuvenate the somewhat ailing series? Is this the Gears installment fans have been waiting for? If you’re seeking answers to these pressing questions, we suggest visiting Digital Spy.
That’s where you’ll find an excellent review penned by critic Stuart Andrews. The analysis not only compares the new effort to past entries, but it also breaks down the strengths and weaknesses of this particular entry with a mix of objectivity and enthusiastic subjectivity. We learn why the game is good, perhaps even great, but doesn’t quite have the “oomph” of the best titles in the franchise, and we’ll be wanting for no information when we’re done reading. Furthermore, the structure and pacing is quite inviting, resulting in a review that both explains and flows.
Why We Like It:
— Keeps a nice, solid pace throughout, with quality analysis of the game’s most important elements. That’s what makes for a top-notch review that delivers everything the reader wants.
— With long-running IPs, it’s important the critic has a healthy basis of knowledge. Here, it’s clear the critic has an intimate understanding of the franchise in question, and that knowledge is put to good use in this evaluation.
— Though the critic may be a fan as well, he keeps a professional distance from the game, thereby not allowing any personal praises or gripes to taint the overall analysis. That isn’t always easy to do.
