With the impending release of Gears of War: Ultimate edition and its free inclusion of the Xbox 360 titles, the staff at Xbox Enthusiast decided to rank each of the four titles from last gen.
for me its Gears 1 Gears 3 Gears 2 Gears Judgement.
First and Second was the best. I don't know what they did to Gears Judgement that game was so terrible. Its started to get stale after Gears 2.
Judgement wasn't made by epic that's what happened to it
Original was the best, only thing it needed was matchmaking. Couldn't play ranked matches with friends (at least without a major headache). I like #2 up until the point where they made every playlist execution rules, which are just plain stupid.
Gears 1 Gears 2 Gears 3 Judgement... Gears 1 best ost and atmosphere. Gears 2 best boss fights (Dat Kraken boss fight) and setpieces. Gears 3 best MP. Judgement... I got nothing on this one.
Gear 1 was the game that I really got me into Xbox live. It will all ways have a special place in my heart. Number one by far.
Gears 1 Gears 3 Gears 2 Gears judgement Most disappointing gears of war was number 2 for me. Gears 1 is one of the best games i've ever played.
Honestly not understanding how so many people think the first is the best. It must just be nostalgia because in all honesty, Gears of War 3 is the significantly better game in pretty much every respect. Multiplayer, horde mode(😍),level design, story, cover system, shooting mechanics. Gears of War 3 is objectively better than the first game in so many ways that I can not understand any reason for someone liking the first more other than just blind nostalgia.
As far as multiplayer goes I completely agree. In campaign... could go either way, gears 1`s campaign was an excellent introduction to the franchise and had great atmosphere, really separated itself from other games at the time
Agree, Gears 3 Horde mode was incredible & addictive & like you said everything else in game improved over the others. But i like them all, just if i had to choose one for a complete overall package it would have to be 3
For me as far as multiplayer its, Gears 3,1,2,judgement. As Far as Campaign, uhhh I have bad memory but I did beat them all in Coop and remember Judgement was the worse campaign, it was Horde for the entire game it seemed.
Gears 2 was top, the boss, the grutest fealing Gears 3 the colors, lol, The giant bosses, look at the colors no more gray world Gears Judgment best gameplay, more fast and fluid, Gears 1 was the beginning of what became the game that define last gen using the best Engine of last Gen Going to get the Remake soon, those good memories and coop are going to be a blast.
For me its 132 then j, also best engine is pushing it, yeah it looked great and ran smooth but the texture loading problems that every unreal 3 engine game had took it out of the running for best engine.
Gears 1 had the nostalgia factor. Great memories on that game. Gears 2 really got me hooked on the multiplayer, despite all its problems. But as someone who plays a lot of competitive Gears, Gears 3 has my favorite multiplayer - the movement is just worlds better than 1 and 2 and the wallbounce is so nice. Judgement.. i didnt even complete the campaign
The article ranks them as far as story goes. Mine are only MP based GOW GOW3 GOW2 GOWJ
For me gears 1 has the best MP, nothing beats doing a supamann shotty kill or a spyda man shotty kill. Gears 2 was a hott mess. Gears 3 was ok didn't like the MP much lancerfest not enough shotty battles, ghostcam, smoke grenade stuns, horde on the other hand is fantastic. Gears 1 is truly the best for MP, I still play it almost everyday. gears 1 is simplicity at it's finest.
