About

Gears Tactics is the fast-paced, turn-based strategy game set 12 years before the first Gears of War. Cities on the planet Sera are beginning to fall to the monstrous threat rising from underground – the Locust Horde. With the government in disarray, a squad of survivors emerge as humanity's last hope. Play as Gabe Diaz, recruiting, developing and commanding your squads on a desperate mission to hunt down the relentless and powerful leader of the Locust army: Ukkon, the mastermind monster who makes monsters. Against all odds and fighting for survival, outsmart your enemy in uniquely brutal, turn-based tactical combat. Experience the intensity of one of the most-acclaimed video game sagas in an exciting new way.

Immersive and character-driven story: Play as the defiant soldier Gabe Diaz, rescuing and building your troops in a journey of leadership, survival and sacrifice.

Customizable squad and equipment: Prepare your troops to face tough enemies, upgrading their skills and outfitting them with loot collected in challenging missions.

Aggressive gameplay: Command your squad in fast paced, turn-based battles, advancing and surviving intense and visceral encounters with the unstoppable, swarming enemy.

Massive boss battles: Defeat towering deadly bosses that defy your strategies and completely change the scale of the battle.

Gears Tactics reviews and comments

I really hope they continue with this Gears spin-off. For their first go they did a great job. The gameplay is solid and the story is a-okay. The skill trees and gear/weapon options allow for lots of neat combinations. On the down side levelling is way too slow and the missions get repetitive; they only have a few different mechanics and the side missions force you to constantly replay them.

Date Completed: 2020-05-11
Playtime: ~ 25h
Enjoyment: 9/10
Recommendation: It's a really fun turn-based tactical game. Definitely worth a go if you've enjoyed the last few XCOM games.
