Microsoft Game Studios, Epic Games and People Can Fly’s latest Gears release – Gears of War: Judgment, has topped the UK all-format gaming charts securing the Number 1 spot as previously held by Tomb Raider.
Gears of War: Judgment, at the time of posting has a MetaCritic score of 79, whilst at the same time dividing opinions on gaming forums where this title is dominated with just two opinions, it’s either loved or hated. Hardcore Gears of War players noticeably feel let down by the quality and the new direction that People Can Fly has taken the series, with changes to controls and a more arcade-style section of campaign missions. Despite all opinions a distinctive lack of multiplayer maps is felt that gamer’s are perhaps being forced into buying Season Passes just to gain more enjoyment online with a guarantee of the future DLC maps first.
It has been confirmed that two new maps and Execution Mode will be available for free in the near future for Gears of War: Judgment. A date for this content hasn’t yet been announced.
