Average User Score: 4.8Oct 2, 2013am not sure about everyone else, but i play the game for the actual game. I havent played my player and the assoication modes yet, which iam not sure about everyone else, but i play the game for the actual game. I havent played my player and the assoication modes yet, which i love btw, but i can tell you from the actual gameplay, this game is amazing. The blocks are on point. The steals, the transition offense and defense. It makes you feel like you are whoever you are in the game. If your lebron, you find yourself catching up to other players setting up a chase down block where if you are chris paul, you ll find yourself setting up for a steal. Now i have been reading some reviews up here and on other sites and i am not understanding some of your complaints. I read one guys comment that said he blow the computer out on the first game he played. I find this highly unlikely unless he played practice for about 4 hours and played on an easy difficulty. Reason being is that the controls are completly different. You cannot just hop in and do the same thing you were doing last year. The first game i played, I found myself passing out of shots because i did not know the controls, and thought it was like last years. Mind you, i was playing aganist a friend online who had the game for the whole day and had known what to do, so it was a bit bad for me. Any way, i am also not sure as to why people are so mad about the lack of changes in those modes. They were great last year. My player could have used a touch up or two, but if its not broke, why fix it? Why go in and make changes to a great system? Thats just my opinion.
To wrap up, I really do love this game. I will get to spend some more time with it after work, but from the 2 games i played, it feels so good. The timing of the shots, the movement of the players, the blocking system, the ablilty of the ball to always be live and touchable, these things and more are why i feel this is a great game.… Expand

First of all, if you’re a true gears of war fan, you will like this game. I am not sure you will love it, butMultiplayer review only...
First of all, if you’re a true gears of war fan, you will like this game. I am not sure you will love it, but you will like it. That being said, I think people fail to realize the greatness that went into the game. Now my review will be on multiplayer alone. I have not played the campaign, nor will I for a while. Ever since I've gotten an Xbox 360 and played games online, I rarely play them alone. Now let me address a few things. I think people are coming to want things to be perfect out the box. I haven't played a game that was better out the box then it was when I stopped playing it due to updates, patches, etc. Gears of war 1 was not the same game out the box. Even though it is my favorite gears and had the best game play in my opinion, that’s not how the game started off. When gears first came out, you could down people and unlimited amount of times. People would down guys for half the match to boost their points. There was also the sliding feature, something that us gears players would refer to as the "ICE MAN" slide, where you could pick up a weapon and glide around for 2 seconds before you had it in your hand. These glitches were removed and it gave us a better game overall and is the gears we all remember. Now getting back to GOW judgment, this is an excellent multiplayer offering, with a few changes that you may or may not like, but it’s not a reason to trade the game in within the first 3 hours of playing it. I really feel that people don’t know how to give things a chance. There are only 4 maps, but they are all great, and huge and more are coming in less than 2 weeks. Also too, execution is making its way back as well, so that’s something to look forward too.
The speed of the game feels like a mix between gears 1 and 3. You pick up weapons faster than ever now, and the shotty is more reliable then gears 2,and 3.
So here are my pros and cons:
-it feels like gears
-y button makes for easy switching
-no more down shots, (I like this because they already took the down shot from the sniper in previous gears so what’s the point of it being in the game)
- The Shotty is a little better than 3, but still not as good as one.
-maps feel like gears but they add more too the game like different heights and elements of surprise.
-You can throw grenades on people and stick them. [[ASIN:B002I0H2AG Gears of War: Judgment]]
- You don’t get downed any more, you just die
- You can't pick up your teammates any more, or pick up enemies and use them as a meat shield
- You can’t stick grenades to things any more
- Not sure if I like the special grenades yet.
- Melee is faster and only takes two to kill you.
In the end, I love the game. There are things that I have to get used to, but I got on and had a ball as if I was playing it for a few months. They might even patch these things in a little while. I just can’t see how people can hate the game because there are only 4 maps? That’s a factor that will change in the next 2 weeks. Not that big of a deal to me I guess.… Expand
