Having put so much time and effort into the "Gears of War" series during this console generation, and having witnessed the original trilogy come to a satisfying close, I was prepared to wait a year or two to see what Epic had in store for the franchise on Microsoft's soon-to-be-revealed next-gen system. Little did I know that People Can Fly would surprise me with the "Gears" game I never knew I wanted. Infused with a newfound energy, "Gears of War: Judgment" is the perfect holdover until the inevitable "Gears 4" arrives.
