Orange and blue - check
The main protagonist (a white 30-something dude + a woman and a black man in the background) - check
Sparks from fire/explosion - check
Frown on faces (a woman and a black dude look like they're having an orgasm) - check

While you can say that DUDE THIS IS GEARS OF WAR PEOPLE LOVE THIS I somehow imagine how an average dude strolls into some retail chain, sees the boxart and just thinks that he has played this game already and goes further to buy something else.

And then we have declining retail sales.

Awful but effective insofar that it plainly states "This is Gears of War, a shooter".

Edit: "In British English, the spelling judgment is correct when referring to a court's or judge's formal ruling, whereas the spelling judgement is used for other meanings."

Huh.

But on topic, the boxart is very generic and very forgettable.

Can we retire the term "dudebro" already? It was beyond ridiculous when it was coined, now it just sounds sort of pathetic.

So many themes of the game that I don't get or the boxart ain't making blatantly clear. Who are they fighting? Where is Marcus? Where are the Locust? Where is Marcus? Where are all the weapons I've come to love? It says nothing about mutliplayer. Where's the boxquote saying that it has multiplayer`? Where is Marcus?

Incredibly stale series. Gears 1 was a real stunning game that meant something. It was actually new from a gameplay point of view (killswitch and re4 aside) and the enemies felt like worthy foes.

Gears two was more of the same only that the locust were weak.

Gears three was the same again. I felt nothing when that one character in the game reached a certain critical point. I was surprised how empty i felt. And i cared about him in the first game too.

People Can Fly (who made Bulletstorm) is also involved in Gears Judgment, so hopefully they added some unique gameplay in there.

I'm kind of surprised that Baird is front and centre, with tiny Cole in the back. I don't really know much about the Gears fanbase, but I thought Cole would be the better liked character.
