Ratings and Reviews
Disorienting at first. But five stars
This game can set you up for major stress. The learning curve is HUGE especially with tilt. My advice, turn the sensitivity and brightness up. And dang if you won't be repeating a portion of a level a thousand times (sometimes literally) until you move forward. I'm finally into the third 'age' if you will. But on the upside, once you start figuring out the physics engine, the ball control becomes a blast. That is until you die ten seconds later. Good luck on anything that goes "poing," I.e. anything with a springboard. That sh't is annoying and actually mentally exhausting.
I give this five stars because it's probably the hardest video game I've ever played. And maybe that says I haven't played many games, but growing up with sega and Nintendo, dabbling on the PS and PS2, coming back to some gaming with an accelerometer? Hell yeah.
If this game is really eating at your last nerve, try to stand when you play it, rocking your body around. Even my wife lets me play it when we're - never mind. Have fun and don't give up on gears.
This was a great game many years ago. Now they've updated it for the latest devices and the graphics look sharper than ever. Great tilt-based gameplay. Like labyrinth but much more epic graphics! I hope they give people an option to buy this game for a larger than subscription one-time fee because it seems weird for people to only be able to own it while subscribed.
Thank you for fixing it
I’ve loved Gears ever since I got it back in 2012.
However, not too long after I first beat it way back when, an update made a whole bunch of levels broken and unbeatable or even playable. I can’t thank you all enough for actually fixing this classic gem and restoring a part of my early tweens.
