CGM Reviews Gears of War Judgment

Gears of War 3 was a rarity in blockbuster games, in that its ending provided a sense of closure. Epic’s decision to shut the door is understandable; over the course of two sequels, the successful formula was polished, tweaked, and embellished upon until the law of diminishing returns could be staved off no longer. Considering that the franchise seemed to run its course, it seemed unnecessary that Bulletstorm developer People Can Fly were tasked with creating a prequel, particularly considering the anemic plot. Thankfully, the game makes clear within the first ten minutes that it’s not content to merely emulate the gameplay of its numbered source material. (Gears of War Judgment, Xbox 360) 85/100
