Let me start by saying that there are waaaaaay to many cry babies out there that wanted this game to be just like gears 3. But hey guess what the changes are what make it JUDGMENT not gears 3 so stop crying. The graphics in this game are visually stunning and the new control scheme i found to be very easy to pick up on and when going back and playing gears 3 found the function of the d-pad to be combersome and a waste of time so cheers to the developers for getting rid of that.
Ok alot of harsh words about the campaign, it is different from the other games but there is a reason behind it. if you listened to the developer interviews they said this game was SUPPOSED to be more fast paced and come right at you game play because it takes place alittle after E-day and the war is fresh. I say big props for adding the declassified missions because more than once my friends and i replayed a level over and over cuz it provided a more challenging game as well as the star system cuz we just HAD to get all 3 stars.
Ok on to MP.....so i gotta admit i really hated MP in the previous gears games so the changes they made to this one only made it funner for me, i found the matches to be more even and more reliant on team co-operation.
Now the number one complaint about the new game that i cant stand is the whinning about no horde mode booooo hoooo. well stop your blubering because i think they hit it right on the nose with these new matches. overun is extremly fun allowing each side to play as both the cog and locus and race each others times and if you were worried about there only being 10 waves in survival, dont be cuz its only playable on hardcore and it is VERY difficult. The variations in character classes provide for a very different, stategic, and exciting gameplay then the original horde and lets face it MOST people always just quit after 10 waves anyway.
All in all great game so if your on the fence about buying Judgment, GO FOR IT! dont listen to the haters!!!
just as good as any other gears. only thing it needs is more maps and there releasing free ones next month. also for all those people complaining about no execution mode they are releasing it for free on April 4. don't take me for the exact date its somewhere around there.

This game was a very big disappointment to me and everyone I personally know that has played it, my cousin and 2 friends of ours played together 3 of us have GameFly and one of the friends unfortunately bought it but we all got it at the same time and played the multiplayer playlist Overrun to start off our Gears Judgement experience and that was fun until you realize there is only 4 maps in that playlist and after awhile that just got real boring, and also Overrun is the only mode where it pits the Locust vs Cogs, in Team Deathmatch it's just Cogs vs Cogs in Red vs Blue style and the maps are too big for how many people can be in a match, Free For All and Domination are the only other playlists besides Overrun and Team Deathmatch and they changed it to where you can only carry a pistol and 1 primary weapon when you first spawn, it used to be you could carry an assult rifle of your choosing as a primary and a shotgun as your secondary and then you also had a pistol. Now onto the campaign portion, it is very very forgettable and is basically just horde mode with cutscenes, every section in each chapter you fight some enemies for like 5 minutes and then you get to a spot where a timer starts and it tell you to get ready and when the timer stops a horde of enemies comes and you kill them and then another shorter timer starts and then you just kill whatever comes at you and then you're done with that section and it ranks you with stars and ribbons and then it just repeats that way of gameplay the entire game which even on hardcore difficulty only took a total of 6 hours to beat and after the first 3 hours my team gave up cause the game was too linear and the dialog and story was just very bland and boring to finish, but after a day of waiting to see if they wanted to finish it I just said forget it and finished it myself and it was just such a forgettable story and a very bland ending. Cliffy B was right to leave Epic games when he heard the idea's going into this.
