I assumed this being a Gears game that it would play like, have an epic campaign, and satisfying multiplayer experience like Gears 1, 2, and 3. In short I was so dissapointed that I took it back within 48hrs. If you're a fan boy stop reading now, its not worth your time.
I have played and tremendously enjoyed each of the other games in the series. I've gotten countless hours of gameplay out of the online multi-player which is, for me, what made this game stand out in the first place with Gears 1 and continuing through to the third installment. I mean each of the other three were improvements over the next. Judgement however, is too much of a variation on the successful formula. I was so dissapointed to find out that they changed the controls (no more D-pad weapon select), limit your starting weapons (no more rifle plus choice of shot gun), take away downs, and pretty much eliminate exectuions all together. Doing that you're left with just another 3rd person shooter. The 7.5 it got on the review was being generous. I give it a 6 at best.
