It’s time for our first big boss fight in Gears Tactics, and we’re on the “insane” difficulty to boot. As a result things have gotten a lot more interesting, but our progress through the game has slowed to accommodate all the additional strategizing. The bottom line is that I’m having fun and enjoying myself, even if it means it’s going to take forever for me to beat the game.
Well, the boss fight was a nice change of pace, and the follow up supply mission was a good challenge. However, for the being on Insane difficulty, I feel like the Gears Tactics is still too forgiving. Especially since I don’t consider myself a master tactical strategist, or even close to utilizing everyone’s skills and equipment perks to their fullest.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m still enjoying the game, but I can only imagine how underwhelming it would be for more skilled players. Having these kind of thoughts in the back of my mind takes some of the wind out of my sails, even when I’ve won a hard fought and well deserved victory.
