it's solid. the return to more of a linear Gears experience was highly appreciated after the hubs of base game Gears 5 and the pacing benefited heavily as a result.
wasn't as wild about some of the encounter designs as seen here, especially with the repetition of having two moving platform set pieces in the expansion's shorter length. the core of the gameplay itself was solid as always so it wasn't a complete slog or anything.
with Gears 5 ending like it did, i wouldn't mind seeing some of these characters shifting into the main cast for a Gears 6 tbh.
