Welcome to the 155th instalment of our first impression video series. Today, we are playing the XBox One game, Gears of War 4 for the first time. You can check out the video directly on YouTube or in the embed below:

I’ve made my way back to the Gears of War franchise. While I may not be the biggest fan of the franchise, I know others do enjoy this series. So, I’ve decided to give this series another chance anyway, keeping an open mind about this game specifically.

On first blush, this game definitely plays just like I remember the first three main instalments of the franchise playing. So, unless this game changes dramatically part way through that I’m not aware of, it seems to be a game that would please people who were huge fans of the first three instalments.

Personally, I did find some of the controls a bit weird such as having to go into cover before you can vault over it, and, what’s more, it was taking me a bit to get used to the other controls (it has also been a while since i played a shooter game with a controller like this, so that might explain why I was a bit rusty with my aiming).

Still, I wanted to hear from you what you thought of this game. Did you like this game and think it might have been a bit underappreciated or do you have preferences for other games in the franchise (or other franchises in general)?

For those who haven’t played this game, but played other games in the series, what did you think of what you saw? Does this make you more interested in playing this game or does it look a bit too much the same?

Also, for those of you who haven’t played this franchise at all and are seeing the gameplay for the first time, what are your thoughts? Does this look like the type of game you could get in to or do you personally have other games on your radar to play? Let us know in the comments below!

This video is part of our first impression video series. Below is a list of 50 of the previously made first impression video’s we’ve made in the past:
