GameFocus: "Gears of War Judgment feels a bit like an excuse to provide the Xbox 360 with one last first-party game for what is likely to be its final year as Microsoft’s flagship game platform. Thankfully, People Can Fly has managed to craft a very interesting experience which sadly falls just short of the high standards set by the series it represents. While fans will certainly find a lot of value in the package, the game simply doesn’t have enough compelling new ideas to fully make Gears of War feel fresh again. On top of that, it’s hard not to be disappointed by the light amount of content offered by the title, and I couldn’t help but wonder why this wasn’t offered as DLC for Gears of War 3. It’s quality over quantity, but we’ve come to expect more from this series."
