Gears Of War Judgement

The game industry is just giving us games that are practically the same thing... This game took out a lot of the gears mechanics that dedicated fans are already used to using. They replaced the control scheme with a makeshift call of duty, they tried to make a 3rd person shooter into a first person shooter.

The campaign is decent, but the declassified missions give it that arcade feel which i do not prefer myself. Also it feels like the same thing as 1,2 and 3. Kill these locusts do this blah blah blah....

Multilayer: I think they destroyed a perfectly good online game. Only being able to play as cogs made me mad but i got over it, but having to only have one primary was a bit overwhelming. The Game only shipped with 4 MAPS!!!!! are you serious? also the character selection is very disappointing. You're paying for a 60 dollar game that is not complete due to them wanting you to buy more maps and characters as DLC. This game is a perfect example of a lazy developer trying to weasel every penny out of their customers, but people will buy it and the developer will keep making games like this because people are too stupid to realize they are getting ripped off. Welcome to the new era of gaming where games come half complete and you have to pay for DLC to obtain the finished product.

I have been a huge fan of the Gears series, but I hate to admit I was incredibly let down with this one. The campaign was short, and multiplayer is lacking. So let's get it over with...

The Good
- The joy of chainsawing enemies is still here

The Meh:
- Short, half-hearted campaign
- Declassified missions took away from the storyline

The Bad:
- Feels like a money grab
- Multiplayer isn't worth the time

Long Story Short:
This is the first Gears game I was disappointed in and wished I didn't spend the money on. Adding on to what was a great trilogy should have been the first red flag to stay away. Like I said, it just feels like an attempt to make more money using Gears good name.
If you are a hardcore Gears fan, go ahead and rent it and run it through, but don't expect too much. If you are new to the Gears series, stay far far away from this one, go back and start with the original.

Purely a Rental

If ain't broke...don't fix it.

Same mechanics, same weapons, same enemies, same cover system.

The uniqueness is few and far in between, Aside from the tower defense missions thrown into the campaign there really isn't anything else exciting. And don't expect the story to blow you away either. This is purely a mindless 3rd person shooter. If you have spare time to waste then this is a great rental choice. Other than that save your money.

Gears of War 3 was the official decline of the series. Creating Judgement was unnecessary and more of a last ditch money effort to squeeze moisture out of a dry sponge.
