3.0 out of 5 stars Just Not the Same, April 3, 2013
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Gears of War: Judgment (Video Game)
Gears of War Judgement is not the Gears of War game fans are looking for. Baird and Cole have lost their personalities. They come out every so often, but for the most part are quiet and somewhat lacking. The Cole Train has lost his engine.

This is not a bad game, not by far, but it's Gears with an arcade feel. And that's just not what fans wanted. Faster paced? Okay, I can get behind that. Arcade-like? Not so much. It doesn't feel like you're tearing through an epic campaign, part of a massive war or involved story... just various score-based levels that leave you wanting more.

Again, it's not a BAD game, just not the Gears game people wanted. I'd give it 3.5 stars if I could. People wanted a Baird game, but Baird remains unfortunately silent (and decidedly UNsnarky) for most of the game. The personality is what's really lacking in this title, and given it stars Baird and Cole, you'd think that's EXACTLY what you'd get. If you're a fan of the series it's worth a play for the story, flaws aside, but it's not aGears title that will keep you coming back for more.
