Gears of War: Judgment

Ok, so apparently there is a new Gears of War game coming. My reaction? Meh. Then I watched the trailer and you know what my reaction was? Meh.

No, serious, I don’t understand what people see in this game. The characters are terrible, the story is bare bones and the gameplay mechanics, though once pioneering in the “cover based shooter” have since been done better by lots of other games.

If there’s a hope here it’s that People Can Fly are involved, and they managed to make a good Gears of War game a few years back called Bulletstorm. I’m not exaggerating when I saw that Bulletstorm was a Gears game, the look and feel were basically lifted from Gears 2 and 3, however it managed to have a little je ne said quois that elevated it above it’s cousins.

So there’s a hope this might be good, or at least a different Gears game, faint though it might be.
