DARKNOVAFORCE REVIEWS

GEARS OF WAR JUDGEMENT including AFTERMATH.

PLATFORMS: XBOX 360

Game supports English, Spanish, French, Polski, Chinese, and Korean text.

Audio support English, Spanish, French.

Supports 1-2p coop local and 1-4 coop online

Played in Spanish.

Note: I will only review the Story modes since I’m not in to the multiplayer of shooters.

Part 1 Judgment

Story: Judgment is a prequel that puts you in the role of Kilo Squad a team lead by Baird. It’s after Emergence day and the team is put on trial to answer for why they disobeyed orders.

Good or Bad Story?: The story is told through flash backs for each member of the team and this allows for you to get to know the characters a bit more and you get to play with each member and see them tell their side of the story. This alone makes it really interesting.  GOOD!

Graphics: It looks really good better than Gears 3 and its colorful.

Audio: The Spanish voices are really good in Judgment. Also when the characters touch fire they make a funny scream.

Game play:

Good: Gears is a 3rd person shooter that can be played with 4 people and is filled with action at every moment. The mechanics remain the same from the previous games, but it’s a lot faster than before with some changes like, you can now carry 2 pistols if you want since you can only carry 2 guns add a time now. The controls have changed a bit like the dpad is now how you use the point of interest and to look at your objectives. While playing story mode in Judgment you will be able to activate challenges that add new elements to the game and a bit more details to the story. There are still boss fights and they are really good. You will unlock things when achieving certain task. Everything feels smoother than before.

Bad: There is a minor issue and that is using the dpad for the point of interest and to look at objectives. I found it to be a awkward and perhaps should have been removed.

Overall: Overall I like the Gears series and Judgment is no exception. While there is 1 minor issues this is still a great game. Its 1 of 2013s best games, this is now my favorite Gears and best Gears I played yet. A must have game of 2013.

Likes: Graphics, game play, coop, story, switch things up a bit, challenges, voice acting, unlockables, boss fights.

Dislikes: Using the dpad for objectives and point of interest.

Wish list: Sequel, sword battle mode.

Score: 5/5 AWESOME!

Part 2: Gears 3 Aftermath

Story: Taking place during Gears 3, separating form the rest of the crew Baird and Cole are on mission to get backup and anything else they can get their hands on to turn the war in the COGs favor.

Good or Bad Story?: Its really good to see what was happening from Baird and Coles point of view when they separated from the others. And this feels fresh from the main story of 3.

Graphics: It looks exactly like Gears 3 with the grayish color on the characters and the environments being more colorful. It still looks good, but I prefer the graphics for Judgments campaign.

Audio: The Spanish voices are really good just like in the rest of Judgment. Also the characters still make that funny scream when they touch fire.

Game play:

Good: Gears is a 3rd person shooter that can be played with 4 people and is filled with action at every moment. Everything in Aftermath is mostly the same as Judgment, except there are no boss fights and challenges that add more details to the story; however, it’s not a bad thing.

Bad: The minor issue is the same as Judgments(dpad).

Overall: Aftermath is a great addition to the Gears series and a nice unlockable. While there is 1 a minor issue this is still a great campaign to play through over and over.

Likes: Graphics, game play, coop, story, voice acting, unlockables.

Dislikes: Using the dpad for objectives and point of interest.

Wish list: Adding these type of stories to other Gears.

Score: 5/5 AWESOME!

Both are recommended to fans of: action, shooters, Epic games, coop, bro-ops, Gears.
