Gears Tactics is a turn-based strategy game set in the Gears of War universe, exclusively for PC right now. The game is aggressively well-optimized on PC, with some truly great settings menus.
Gears Tactics is a turn-based strategy game set in the popular Gears of War universe, focusing on events prior to the first game. Following Gabe Diaz, you're tasked to bring down a Locust scientist, known only as Ukkon. To get there, you have to build up an army from the remnants of the battered C.O.G., and take on Ukkon's bio-engineered terrors, mutated from the indigenous creatures of the subterranean Hollow tunnels.
In our review, we praised Gears Tactics' combat, even if some of the mission structuring and pacing fell a little short in some ways. Regardless, one aspect of Gears Tactics that I very truly want to see other PC games take on is how The Coalition and Splash Damage set out the game's PC settings, which are remarkably good.

An epic first-effort strategy game.
Gears Tactics doesn't quite approach XCOM's crown, but it's a satisfying and modern-feeling strategy game fans of the genre will enjoy.
