The attacking team must break through the enemy team's defensive line and deliver the flag before their pool of lives run out. Fortunately, the brutal and tense combat continues to thrive in both competitive and cooperative environments. A poor cash-in, a single player campaign that's just not even needed Copy paste of previous GoW games but with the worst story ever and multiplayer that includes 4 maps but don't worry I'm sure they'll want you to pay more to expand that in the future Shameful It doesn't even deserve its Metacritic score of 79 ….

Gears of War: Judgment tells a story that didn't really need to be told about a time that didn't need explanation, but it does it so well you'll be happy to take a trip back in time for a quick trial. At the end they add up your score and give you stars.

Prequels can be restrained by destiny. Whether it's the gory anarchy of every Gear for him- or herself, or the frantic intensity of trying to hold a capture point against a surging enemy team, these modes deliver thrills that fit very nicely into the competitive catalog. It's okay but not as fun as Horde.
The focus on scoring is not an unnatural evolution, however; previous Gears games were eager to remind you of your achievement progress with pop-up notifications, and the tally system in Judgment takes that accomplishment-focused play one step further.

It is the fourth passage of theGears of War arrangement. Just about a month after Emergence Day, Baird finds himself in Halvo Bay, a coastal city that looks a lot like every other Locust-ravaged city. On normal difficulty, these modifiers are a welcome challenge; on harder difficulties, they make things very challenging indeed. It's a change of pace for the series, but Judgment successfully serves up the tense, brutal action you know and love, and an assortment of new online modes make it an exciting game for competitive and cooperative players alike.

These modifiers add an element of randomness, enhancing every mission in the game with fun, flavorful variances.
