Gears of War: Judgment Getting Free Map, But Does it Really Matter?

"Will any free DLC at all truly help the Gears of War franchise at this point. What made the Gears of War franchise such a success in the past was the fact that it was unique from all other shooters. They gave the game a creative alien to battle known as the Locust which..." (Gears of War Judgment, Xbox 360)

Dont care what anyone says. If u get free dlc on any platform, thats always a good thing.


You have a good point but if the dlc is great value then its a good thing but if its dlc that doesnt do anything for the game itself then it being free isnt even worth mentioning.

Exactly, they can complain about Gears, but please don't bring free Dlc into it. If there are fans playing Gears Judge, i'm sure they'll appreciate a new map for nothing.

It's only free because the game launched initially with only four multiplayer maps and no horde mode.

The game launched with 8 maps.

But does it even matter if it does not do the game itself any justice? (at least to fans of the franchise)

The problem is the pointlessness of demanding free DLC to do the game justice. Whether you're disappointed with the game or not, there's no reason to also drag in how irrelevant this free extra is in your eyes.

There's little difference between this example and one giving a bunch of diatribes against his/her favorite restaurant's poor cooking of the night after seeing prompt service from the valet.

I never really touched the multiplayer because it seemed pretty repetitive... run to weapon... get it and dominate or dont and get destroyed and repeat. Horde mode was fun though.

You pretty much summed up every single multiplayer game. I guess you must hate playing online altogether.
TheGrimBunny  +   715d ago
It's funny because that is how the 2nd and 3rd game were usually played however the 1st game not as much. I loved taking out the entire opposing team after all my team mates died... plus there was the infamous Raven Down which people played in Ranked like crazy just to make it shotguns only and no power weapons.

Free content is always welcomed, the game tried to split the versus multiplayer with the Overrun multiplayer and it hurt more than helped. They should have launched with less Overrun maps to be honest.

The maps they are releasing are pretty well designed though, I'm enjoying them, and this is the second free map we've gotten, so I don't have a reason to complain, free is free!

I stopped playing Gears Judgment because they made some stupid changes and had terrible balancing issues.

I saw that they did some updates and decided to to try it, I only played about 5 games so far and with the few changes I saw it has made the game 100 times better, not to say perfect because I dont know I only played 5 games. The weapons were much better balanced and letting you start with a shotgun as your secondary weapon helps out a whole bunch.

I like the new levels, it honestly needed more than the original 3. I still need to see if they changed those stupid spike grenades that stick to you I feel the stopping power in the guns was a lot better but I need to play more to confirm.

I am excited to give it another try, I am a Gears fan and I loved the campaign and the overrun and survival I just didnt like the MP changes they put in. It seems they are at least taking steps to fix it so I'll give them a chance.

"I stopped playing Gears Judgment because they made some stupid changes and had terrible balancing issues."

In other words, you couldn't adapt to the different quirks of each weapon. Noobtubes ftw!
TheGrimBunny  +   715d ago
no noobtubes is GOW Mr. COD... there r SERIOUS issues Judgment has and appear to be unfixable.
edonus  +   715d ago
Its not that I couldnt adapt, its that I didnt want to adapt to the different quirks.

Gears 3 was perfection and then playing judgement it was a step back. Honestly its still a step back. There are certain things Gears taught me to expect, like downs, and active reload bonuses.

Its not that I think Gears Judgement MP is bad. If it was some other game it would have been fine even before the changes but i have come to expect a certain level of quality from Gears.

Like I said with the changes I felt on my initial getting back into the game I am excited, I love playing Gears its a very unique experience so if its been tweaked to be more true to the original i'm happy. Like I said just adding the shotgun from the start as a secondary weapon fixes a whole bunch.

Now the game has 5 free maps lol!!!
TheSuperior  +   715d ago
I have a love hate relationship with judgment for specific reasons. The problem I have with this free dlc is that I have already put the game down and have no clue if I will pick it back up anytime soon. Free content is great but what's the point if your not really playing the game with the free content anyway?

Lets put it this way; totally happy for the people this will benefit and hope to see other companies hop on board and publish some free content too.
MasterD919  +   714d ago
Lets face it...the only reason why we're getting free maps is because they sold this game to the fans with barely enough maps.

It's a way of appeasing those who are extremely dissapointed. And by the way, Overrun maps only is a b.s. idea because I have no want to ever dive into Overrun mode. Horde mode > Overrun mode.
