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.
I am a die hard gears fan but was unsure of this one so rented it ......meh glad i did because its basically gears 3 with different characters, i don't even really see any graphic or game play improvements they even use some sound clips from gears 3 , i played online for an hour and just felt like i was trying to rank up gears 3 again and lost interest even with the new game modes ,so i guess i will play it complete it and send it back and move on ...maybe as a big fan i expected to much maybe not, this should of been a gears 3 add on DLC thats all !!
The control's have changed, you can only carry two weapons at at time, and the multiplayer has changed. There is no Horde, and you can only choose classes when you are on survival mode. You also can not pick up enemy weapons on survival. They tried to make Gears into call of duty or battlefield. For someone who has played all of the other Gears, it is a let down. They kinda messed this one up. Not sure it was worth buying, but put it in your Q and see what you think.
