Buy it, Rent it, or F*** it: Gears of War Judgment

#1horror_spookyPosted 4/1/2013 5:21:34 PM(edited)
+Pretty graphics
+Gameplay is tight and polished
+Voice acting is done well
+Soundtrack is great
+New scoring system for campaign is a good idea
+Aftermath is a nice reward for earning stars
+Leveling across all different game modes is a good idea that I wish other games did
-Feels shallow and utterly pointless from both a gameplay and story perspective
-Minor changes to the controls are also just as pointless
-Nothing interesting happens to the characters or in the plot much at all
-Incorporating horde segments into campaign makes the campaign feel too arcadey and repetitive
-Horrible pacing
-Scoring system, while a VERY good idea, is broken because it hinges entirely on the Declassified missions
-Declassified missions add very little to the game and feel, like much of the rest of the game, really, really pointless
-OverRun is just not as fun as Beast and Horde mode separately
-Multiplayer is just more of the same and is a snoozefest

Verdict:

F*** It

I hate listening to dreams. It's like flipping through a stack of pictures. If I'm not in any of them, and nobody's having sex, I just...don't care

I dunno, I just really had no fun with this game. I LOVED the other three Gears of War games. My brother and I were super excited to go through this one in co-op and we were bored to tears. =/ One of the most disappointing games I've ever played. My friends seem to like it though.

Yeah, Judgement is extreme hit or miss, from what I've seen. I love it.

I loved Gears 1, disliked 2, and frickin' loved 3.

I may play judgement but it looks like utter crap to me, and from the demo it is just meh.

Its not good enough for a buy, but definitely not bad enough for a f*** it score.

I rented it and I enjoyed it for the campaign, I tried the mp and strongly disliked how they changed it but at least they are trying to change it up.

it's a definite rent from me.

Coming from someone who has played every Gears game upon release and played them almost religiously, Judgment at least deserves a rent, it just feels likes a half-done game and didn't hook me at all like previous installments.

I'm with SunDevil in that I really enjoyed the game, but my coop partner agrees more with horror_spooky's assessment...

I really enjoyed the campaign/horde segments, but her complaints are near identical to yours.

hmm maybe a rent it, it was fun playing co-op and it's free to play no online pass.

I gave up on Gears after the second game. It just wasn't as fun as the original was at the time.
