The Fact that they change 70% of the online play to make it more fast paced hurts me being a huge GOW Fan.I played gears for every aspect but what keeps me going is the online. Taking out dual starting weapons, letting everyone spawn with grenades is iffy, spawning with a sniper rifle? really?... How About Only giving us 4 game modes to play online. taking out the core of the game (war zone and execution) That is what started this game. Kinda seems like epic sold out and just over watched as another company made the game... They did a few things right by auto picking up ammo and the grenade sticking is pretty cool even though i think you shouldn't spawn with them. Play online and you will hear everyone saying how bad the game is and you get the others saying give it a chance i did trust me its not Gears..
The Campaign was OK kinda dry on the lore of the gears as they just had me killing locust wave after wave, like they reworked survival mode with (its just like overrun) throughout the whole game.. Speaking of which WHY TAKE OUT HORDE....
Overrun is definitively good addition to the franchise, also is the declassified missions i enjoyed doing those when beating the campaign.
It just seemed like they put all this attention to selling the game (hype) advertising everywhere and didn't put even half into the actual game. Theres so little content online what happened to my 50 different playable characters and the weapon skins that were given FREE monthly.
Yeah about all the marketplace dlc i know this is a business but don't starve us just to make even more money.. if they do make another GOW (i am sure this one isn't going to make enough revenue) They better rework everything back to normal. Sadly i am afraid its already too late.. Should of just made this a DLC add-on for gears 3 and called it a day i would still have respect for this franchise.

GoW Judgment is the most underrated game I have ever played. Initially I was angry that my favorite mode, Horde, was removed as well as the departure of stereoscopic 3D. Then I played Overrun. Overrun is the most fun I have had with a video game this console generation. Each match is like a game of Chess except it is isn't boring. Survival doesn't make up for the lack of Horde but it is fun too. The additions of Overrun, the class system, declassified missions, and ditching D pad system for guns and grenades are the 4 best additions to Gears since Horde.
I do agree that cog vs cog is dumb and I wish there were a couple more maps and more customization/depth and I of course wish there was Horde 3.0 but this will probably go down as my favorite game this console generation, Crazy considering this game only has a 79% on Metacritic.
