I finished Gears of War: Judgement last night.
After telling myself that I wasn’t going to bother with this one, I gave in once a few of my friends convinced me that this one was going to be different. Sadly, it’s not. While I absolutely loved the first Gears of War, the games that have followed since never really did anything for me. GoW:J keeps this tradition alive.
If you’re a Gears fan, you might like it. If you’re like me and were hoping for something besides the old room-after-room-after-room-after-room of random enemies to kill, you’re going to be disappointed.
When I heard that People Can Fly was developing this chapter of the Gears of War saga, I was hopeful that they could freshen it up and make these games fun again. Instead, the game comes off as a quick attempt to cash in on their current assets before they have to start working on the next-gen versions.
I’d give Gears of War: Judgement 3 unnecessary prequels out of 5.
