I originally purchased gears of war 3 and liked it so much I decided to purchase the entire collection, went through & beat 1, 2 & 3 and then played Judgement, they tried to change the game and this almost always backfires. I'm a big ratchet & clank fan and they did this when they went to the all 4 one & full frontal assault concepts after what was a great campaign. Epic/MS did something similar here in that now you switch from character to character the whole way through, they also split the game up into two sections, a prequel to GOW1 and a post GOW3, both of which are very short and seem to be shorter(combined) than any of the first 3 campaigns. Also they changed the controls(in their defense it was probably requested but who makes a 1, 2, 3 and then changes the controls in 4?)
With that said if you liked gears of war 1, 2, 3 who can resist playing & beating judgement...and since the campaign is shorter it might be worth just renting rather than purchasing. It doesn't add a ton to the story but is fun none the less.

it definatly is a great rent jus now wow facter after it being the 4th GoW but the old ones were great so maybe not a buy but definatly a fun game jus not much different it was just thrown together with the same stuff that worked ever other time jus so they could make some money this year n not let the franchise die im sure the next GoW will have something epic to remember for sure they were just buying time til the new xbox comes out
Fairly routine squad-based game except the aiming/shooting is a bit better than usual and the concept of changing characters/paths as story develops in interesting. Enjoyed the yea/nay on challenges at beginning of each battle, too. I am not a big fan of war games but this one was fun to play. I played longer than planned but it wasn't compelling enough to finish.
