Review: Gears Tactics is an accomplished alternative to XCOM

Gears of War mostly mostly nails its strategy debut with an accomplished, but no-frills alternative to XCOM.

  • Gears translates wonderfully to strategy
  • Fantastic cinematic presentation
  • Adds compelling twists to the XCOM formula
  • The linear campaign feels like a missed opportunity
4 / 5
