Gears Of War fans did not have to wait long for more Gears Of War action, only this time it would not be about Marcus Fenix!
Gears Of War Judgement was a prequel and it focused on Baird. Who along with Cole Train and two new characters, Sofia Hendrik and Garron Paduk who made up Kilo Squad. The story is pretty interesting in that Baird is actually on trial and the game is told through a series of flashbacks. It was pretty well done, but at the time and especially after the roller coaster that was Gears Of War 3, the story in its narrative and length were not as favorably reviewed as the other games that had come before it.
Each mission has a harder option you can select where you will have some kind of handicap be it having to use a certain weapon or a time limit. This was fun and as each level would see you get a score at the end it did help the replayability.
Multiplayer mode in Gears Of War Judgement was a ton of fun and while it did not reinvent the wheel. OverRun and Free For All as the new game modes were very well received and a nice addition to the returning game modes.
Gears Of War Judgement may not be the most popular game in the series, but it still sold over a million copies and many hard core Gears fans loved being able to delve deeper into the lore.
