“This is a near miss, but as anyone who has ever played a turn-based game will tell you, a near miss can be all the enemy needs to take you out. This is an interesting, but hardly essential, addition to the Gears family.”

8/10

“Gears Tactics does an excellent job of grafting Gears’ signature look and feel onto XCOM’s turn-based battle format and looks great doing it.”

Mike Williams (USgamer)

4/5 stars

“Gears Tactics finds its niche by leaning further into the hyper-aggressive action and gore of the franchise. It throws tons of enemies at you, which forces you to move and keeps you on your toes, but can also become annoying and tedious in some missions. For a first-time outing though, Gears Tactics is a fantastic start.”
