    I have been a Gears fan since day one. I remember rushing to EB Games to pick up my preordered copy on day one, speeding home and wasting the next few weeks of my life chainsawing dudes in the face. Gears 2 came around a... Read Full Review

    A great game in a limited package.

    When a game get's a prequel that follows the story arch of support characters, it is a fan service and a celebration of a series. This is a common theme through out Gears Of War Judgment through it's single player and it... Read Full Review

    They have ruined this series. This is 3 steps down from GOW-3

    What in the world happened to this series? Why did they mess with the controls? Y button is 'change weapon'? LB is 'throw grenade'? Epic missed the boat on this game. I guess they were looking to regress back to pre... Read Full Review

    Judgements online multiplayer is horrendous. What made GOW awesome has now been stripped away.

    Positives: Player motion is still fluid. Graphics are solid. Why the game fails: I've played countless hours of Gears of War 1, 2, and 3. I've spent who knows how many hours on Team Deathmatch alone on GOW 3. Judge... Read Full Review

    Beat my expectations

    The Good; First of all, the story. This really got me intrigued as I was always wondering what happened with the "Trial" that they always refer to in the other games, so this answers some questions. Graphics are fairly ... Read Full Review

    EPIC GAMES EPIC FAIL

    This game would be a 1-2 month playing experience if it was just some new shooter title, but having Gears of War on your box, increases expectations and unfortunately sales. Major changes, not talking about the few new c... Read Full Review

    Most surprising game since gears 1

    I have been playing gears of war since the original and when I heard the announcement of this game I felt it was going to be a cheap side game due to Epic handing it over to people can fly and Cliff Blezinski leaving Epi... Read Full Review

    Yawn

    A competent entry in the series that brings nothing new or particularly interesting. This game features the annoying "flashback" style of storytelling that, for some unknown reason, game writers seem to think we like an... Read Full Review
