    Gears Tactics is a turn-based strategy game set in the popular Gears of War universe. It doesn't quite steal XCOM's crown, but the potential is clear.

    Gears Tactics is a turn-based strategy (TBS) game in the vein of XCOM, set in the popular Gears of War universe. Taking place before the events of the first game, Gears Tactics follows Gabe Diaz, exploring the lineage of Kait Diaz from Gears 4 and 5. Gabe is a military strategist, tasked by Chairman Prescott to undertake a dangerous mission, during the early days of the Locust War.
    Gears Tactics evolves the turn-based XCOM formula in some truly awesome ways, with awesome cinematic treatment that Gears of War fans have come to expect from The Coalition. Some of the game's flaws stop it from taking XCOM's TBS crown, but it's a solid first effort that could easily evolve into a pillar franchise for Xbox Game Studios with a little more love.
