Gears of War: Judgment
This game is really nice I like the gameplay,the new weapons,also the multiplayer. The campagin story was kinda short which sucks but it was intersating as well also that you kill a lot of locust or you die alot even in insane difficulty. I don't know why people be hating this game its not even bad it's good. If you like killing a lot of locust and taking in tough challenges this game would be good !!!
Best Game Ever!!!!!!!!!
There is alot to say bout Gears Of War Judgment it the best gears ever!! Or best game ever i have so much fun on that game it unbelible. I have been playing gears sence 06 and this is the best 1 yet i think sence the main creator left the game got 1000000000 times better thanks epic and people can fly for given us the gaming communtiy the best GAME EVER PLAYED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The little cog that could
A game series that once was so prevalent in the minds of people now seems to have finally put the Lancer up over the fire place, put their cog tags on the key rack and sit down watching the fire burn hotter than imulsion spewed out of a freshly killed lambant wretch. With all of that said I don't think that this is a bad game really, I just see it as an attempt at something new in the series.
With the events of Gears of War 3's ending the series seemed to be over, a great end to a great series! Sure maybe a release of a reboot sometime in the future, but truly it seemed over for the time being. Although the team at People Can Fly wanted none of that, they saw an opportunity alongside the people at Epic games to make another Gears of War title. Something a little different than the rest, not a sequel, but a prequel. Now obviously you should know this by now since the game has been out not for quite some time. Either way the game was being made to my knowledge by a different team, meaning that they were going to change a few things within the game mechanics.
[Game Feel/Game Mechanics]
With that knowledge it is understandable for the changes of things such as the controls, and some base game mechanics. Now with that said that doesn't mean that it was good for it to happen. Changing how a game title's default control and feel of it because of a different developer is not really acceptable, the d-pad changing your weapon was a key feature and what set it apart from other shooter titles, having 2 primaries a secondary and a grenade and using the d-pad to switch those weapons was what also set it apart and made it different. Two key aspects that made the game feel different and play different than any other game on the market has now been changed making the game exactly like the rest, without the characters, ridiculous weaponry, and the gore I wouldn't even think this was a Gears of War title.
Oh, my dear Lancer how I have missed you so. The weaponry in this game is...interesting...to say the least. When you play the game you are greeted by the family of weapons you have learned to love, the Lancer, Boom-Shot, Torque Bow, Longshot, Gnasher, Hammerburst, and so on. Although what is that? A new snipe...no wait TWO new snipers? New grenades and explosives? Geez Santa was packing some heat this year. Stupid metaphors aside, the weapons in this game are pretty darn good. You certainly have a wider array of weapons thus making a wider array of play styles to choose from. Rarely I say to myself that a weapon in this game is overpowered or under powered, which is good that the game has good balancing. Variety is the spice of life people, don't forget that!
The characters of this game show some old faces and new faces, and some new old faces. For the new characters they seem like they actually belong to the story of Gears of War and don't just seem like they are flat uninteresting characters. The ability to walk in the shoes of the other members of kilo squad was nice and an interesting idea on how the story would be told. Playing as a different character per act and going through what they personally went through was a fun idea. With that being said during those sequences a difference in abilities, or feel would have been nice. So you can have a fully different experience with the different characters. For multiplayer I would agree that the amount of characters to choose from is pretty small, but at the same time though you have skins for them...yay...
I'm not a super fan for the series of Gears of War but I played a fair share of it and enjoyed the story and development of it thoroughly. During the series I always sort of wondered what the war was like at the very beginning of it. E-day was always talked about, but never really explained well other than the fact that it was bad and started the crapfest that humanity is in now. So a prequel about the aftermath of E-day was a good idea, and to take the story of how Baird will never be a Lieutenant ever again was a nice add-on to that. Story-wise the campaign is nice and fills in a few questions on how bad E-day really was. Difficulty wise to me the game wasn't that hard but fulfilling, 8 or so hours for the Judgement story line on Insane with all classified missions completed. The classified missions added a new sort of difficulty not really seen in a gears yet, in a way that calls for you to be better with what you are given and to be more knowledgeable about the path ahead, but at the same time though that path is randomized every time you play so you can't just wrap your head around one scenario. The Aftermath was a good followup and answered some questions I had in Gears 3.
It simply does not exist in this game, if you were looking for Horde 3.0 this isn't where you should be looking, the game has a pseudo survival mode named Overrun it is a more tactical/objective class based survival gamemode and was really one of the only other reason I wanted the game, to see if this was a good game mode. It's idea was nice and it's execution was well done as well, but could it really have killed them to put horde 2.0 in the game as well? Or even original Gears 2 Horde, I would have been fine with that. Sometimes I just want to sit down with a couple of my friends and play against some AI and just survive, no side objectives that can cause you to lose, just good ol' survival. Really in the end it is just me being a bit greedy for something from the old games, they didn't have to make a whole new gamemode with this game, but can you really blame me for wanting horde 2.0 back?
To sum it up, the game is good. It is a new gears game that came out a few months ago, but that was the problem with it all along. It doesn't feel like a Gears of War title, maybe it was the controls, the different mechanics, the characters, the guns, or maybe it is just me. Overall though if you were looking for the next big Gears title this isn't for you, if you are looking to spend a few dollars at something that can give you a good bit of fun and challenge with it's campaign mode, and have a few friends to play against and with in Overrun and general multiplayer wait a bit for the price to go down and pick it up for $40 or so.
Or you could save up for one of those new shiny consoles coming out, I don't know I'm not your mom.
im a gears fan but when they changed the multiplayer to all cog I was like what were they thinking. if you like gears 3 then stick with gears 3.
An EPIC fail from EPIC games?
Well, where do I start? I suppose I'll start of by saying that the game, graphically, looks like a Gears of War game. There were no real noticable changes or updates to the look of the game from Gears 3, which I like. Other than that and good sound quality, I really dont think this game deserves to be catagorized as Gears of War title. The campaign is bland and leaves a lot to be desired. You can declassify missions which basically just adds more of a challenge or some sort of time trial to that section of the mission. Most of the campaign, I noticed, is defending a certain spot or thing from the locusts, completely lacking in more in depth gameplay, this Gears is simply spray wild bullets at the enemy and you should be alright. The campaign reminded me of the horde mode from Gears 3. As far as the story goes, dont look for any big, dazzling eye-opener battles or enemies, or even the classic idea of the team getting way in over their heads and somehow managing to come out alive. I noticed that the story felt dry and almost forced to continue throughout. This does not feel like a Gears of War title to me and it certainly isnt worth the $60 I paid for it. I didnt play much of the multiplayer because the campaign itself left me very dissappointed. What I did get from the multiplayer is no more locust, more of a cog on cog feel (i.e. spartan v. spartan slayer of Halo series). The multiplayer has had a lot of the challenge and tactical decision making taken out of it. I would NOT recommend this game to any avid fan of the ORIGINAL Gears of War because this certainly is nothing like it. Someone new to Gears might enjoy this game, but I'd still skip this flop and head straight for the trilogy. I love many of Epic's games, but this one really will make me rethink buying another game made or produced by them in the future. --Seacrest OUT!
camp is mediocre and the multiplayer is aweful. took away gears and gave us third person COD with power weapons
Gears J is not gears game compared to the others.
Everything that was liked from gears 1, 2, & 3 was completly changed in gears j and it was changed for the worst. The game went from being a great 3rd person shooter and a model for other 3rd person shooters to becoming a terrible game. They tried to fix things that did not need fixing and they changes made to the game made it basically another call of duty which the world does not need.
This game had so much potential, but Epic failed to deliver. They made this game more appealing to the average idiot Call of Duty player instead of the people that love the Gears Series and have since the beginning. I wish i never wasted the money on it in the first place. This game has failed to meet my expectations and i will never buy another Epic Games, game ever again. Epic...Failure
Not the same Gears, but a different twist
To start off, the game is not the same as most people think. It has a few bugs, not enough maps, and the guns seemed a little nerfed. But if you can put that behind you, its a solid game honestly. The DLC came out and will be adding more soon. The combat is nice with lots of additional things you can buy. People complain because they haven't seen the good. They fixed the over powered guns, they let you jump down from sections without having to go around, and the multiplayer has no lag from what I have seen. Don't let the negative reviews turn you away because its a good game that will get you through the summer. Plus with the price drop, it should make you want it even more. At first I didn't like it too much, but now since I realized what the game brings, I have really enjoyed myself.
i been a gears fan since the beginning i bought every game and every dlc so saying i know the game is a understament. this new gears game is disapointing. the graphics and sound are great but the story is just sad....change isnt bad but they changed it so much that it dosent feel like a gears game. upset i spent 60 bucks on it....save your money
