Gears 5 has got positive reviews and people love it but the game is not perfect. Shroud and Dr Disrespect, shared their thoughts on Gears 5 and mentioned that there is a mechanic that they both find very frustrating to deal with.
The problem is that the game does not properly recognize when the player is trying to take a tight turn from a corner. What happens it that the character starts to roll and that can be very irritating indeed. Here is what Shroud had to say about this annoying Gears 5 mechanic:
Why? Why does it roll? I’m just trying to get off the f***ing wall bro! I don’t get why it rolls off the f***ing wall sometimes. I get why, but when you spread, and you’re not off the corner, you roll. It’s hard to not do that sometimes, I guess.
Dr Disrespect, the two time, watched Shroud play Gears 5 and he also found this mechanic very frustrating. Here is what he had to say about it:
Watching shroud right now playing Gears 5. He’s echoed the same problem I have. Why isn’t there a disable button for automatic evade off of cover? I get that it does it off the cover edges but it seems too ‘systematic’ and limiting. I want full control.
