Gears 5 starts with a “Previously on…” recap, and that’s when I realized I remembered absolutely nothing about Gears of War 4. I played it. I reviewed it. Judging by the review I wrote at the time, I vaguely enjoyed it.
But I don’t remember it.
If nothing else, I think Gears 5 will escape that fate. While Gears of War still feels like a series casting about for an identity, one that could’ve (and maybe should’ve) died with the Xbox 360 era, Gears 5 at least makes an honest effort at finding a way forward. It stumbles occasionally, sure, but the seeds of future reinvention are here.
