What could have been

This franchise has always been something that I have counted on for its epic scale and you get very involved not only with the combat but with the story and foundation of its setting.

Judgement sadly loses sight of that. There is an absolute feel of the game being a series of short several minute objectives strung together thinly by story. The option to add greater difficulty for greater reward is great but should have been added through narrative so you arent endlessly feeling like you are "driving throught the video game and getting stuck at every single red light".

The story was ok. It's nice to at least have an answer to the history but unfortunately it's not particularly interesting. All the mechanics are the same nothing has really changed. At about a weeks worth of play it made for a very pleasant "downloadable content add-on" rather than another sequel (or prequel in this case).

Great to rent, don't buy unless you are a collector.

As a person who played all of the gears of war game i had to have it, i played through both the single players it was cool and fun, the new controlles are hard to get used to as a gears of war player, then i played online and never wanted to scream at my tv more then i did in it, not that the players were good but that they completely changed the game and made it less fun, i miss the origional horde but the new one is still worth playing, glad i got it through gamefly and not buying it.

Im not a Gears head by any means, but I am a lifelong gamer. That being said I played all the Gears cause I liked playing games in general. The first two were good....then we get to this one. Its a shallow half-done game in my opinion. Not even really worth a rent. The campaign is short and makes no sense whatsoever. The game is terrible. Dont waste your time.
