Tom Chick writes: Some players might feel cheated that this cool new remix is a standalone retail package, especially considering how many maps were sold for Gears 3 instead of meaningful gameplay improvements (although the fortification upgrades and RAAM campaign were welcome exceptions). In light of all those maps, it’s easy to see why there are so few maps included with Judgment, which encourages you to buy a season’s pass for double experience points and therefore faster pink outfits and zebra stripes. But the bigger issue is that there’s no substantially new content. Yeah, sure, there’s a healing grenade and a creature who grows spikes to charge at you and a new d-pad-less weapon swapping scheme. But these are mostly the same guns, monsters, and combat sandboxes you already played, just arranged differently. Same gameplay, new framework. But given that this is currently my preferred way to get my Gears on, I can’t complain too loudly when I’m so busy trying to three-star each of the levels.
