I've often though of it as the Shifty Eyed Chin-Wa, Stupid Fucking Mick, Greaseball Dago, or even Sand "n word" of the latter part of the 7th gen. I loved Bulletstorm, and based on that, I've always wanted to try it.

I found it to be better if I played it with an bulletstorm type attitude and focused on the optional challenges,rather than the previous games, so bullet storm is quite apt talking of bulletstorm even though it was all about shooting I really felt it needed a melee attack to mix it up, back to the point, before anyone says they are different games I'm  talking  attitude not the gameplay.



After playing Gears of war 4, I realized I am already tired of gears gameplay. The magic from gears 1 and 2 aren't there anymore. I am still gonna play gears 5 but would be lying if I say I am excited for it.

People hated Judgment because of multiplayer, not because of campaign.

And for a Gears of War game it was indeed a horrible piece of shit. no DBNO, no perfect active reload damage, KotH mode changed to a 3-hill Domination bullshit, asymmetrical maps and only 4 of them.


Then there was Overrun, a masterpiece of a multiplayer mode. It only had 4 maps but I'd say Overrun alone was worth the 60€ I paid for Judgment. Played the shit out of this mode and I so much hope they'll bring it back for Gears 5. It would bring in more casual players too.

For me it was the multiplayer that wasn't very good as described above.

Overrun was good and I want see it return in Gears 5, maybe they should add the Swarmak.



Proud to be a Californian.

I wouldn't call it gold but I did enjoy Judgement quite a bit.

It may lack the epic setpieces of 1-3, but it's still got that brilliantly tight, gritty Gears combat, and the arcade-y star rating angle actually really appealed to me as it made me try harder for stuff like headshots or risk taking on the declassified challenges, it felt nicely old school to get a 3/3 rating at the end of a hard-fought mission.

It also might just be the best looking game on the 360, absolutely mind-blowingly pretty for a game running on 2005 hardware. Lighting, textures, and effects are top notch, and the addition of AA gives it better image quality than the already stunning Gears 3.

I'd give it an 8/10.

Spot on .

I hear ya, MS hasn't done a great job making it feel fresh. But the gameplay of Gears games is still so much better than most other shooters that I get the urge to play them again. After all these years I don't see other shooter doing what makes Gears so great. I was hoping PS4's The Order would capture some of that but...

I don't really get that excited about games anymore, maybe I've become jaded. I just look forward to playing games and hope I will enjoy them. It seems to me that Gears 4 wanted to stick to formula of previous games and its fine, its a good game. Gears 5 looks much more ambitious in gameplay and story telling, that's what has me interested.

Its a decent game which proves that gears is best served with a proper story and a variety of ways to play the game (The proper story trumps all though). The title was uninspired, bringing familiar faces  and placing them in a never ending match of horde. Being that Ferguson wasn't involved, its quite obviously a desperate attempt at a sequel from Microsoft to Publish another gears when the franchise had no steam without its key team. It proved the notion, that a game is not always better off if the key directors are not present. This is why Ferguson was the key purchase for the coalition.

I will say as I'm just finishing up replaying it at the moment, there is a strange disconnect between the main campaign and the Aftermath bonus campaign set during Gears 3. Almost feels like Epic developed the latter and People Can Fly the former, the look and feel is very different.



I hated the constant break and point calculation crap. Clear a room, point screen, clear a room, point screen. Only gears game I haven’t finished...

I honestly don't get all the hate for this one. Then I never gave a stuff about online multiplayer so if it sucks in that department I wouldn't know.

Just getting another 5-6 campaign hours of that delicious crunchy combat was enough for me. Very few other games make shooting baddies feel as satisfying as it does in Gears. I even liked the wave-based sections as it was essentially single player horde mode, and sign me the fuck up for that.

I imagine Gears of War Judgment sitting in a bar alongside God of War ascension, both crying in their beer saying fuck our families at least we have each other.

Hahaha I know right, both "GOW" spinoffs that released in 2013 and aren't as loved by their fanbase as the main entries, both among the very best looking games of their respective platforms and the 7th gen, both iconic franchises for their platform...
