Hey guys, I just received this game as a present today, wasn't planning on getting it, but I want to know if the story will make sense if I haven't played Gears 3, I know it's a prequel but I'm just wondering if there will be anything mentioned I won't get, or if it will spoil anything if for whatever reason I go back and play Gears 3.
Not at all, although Aftermath which unlocks while playing the main game has ties to Gears 3, but it seems very, very light on any story stuff and might spoil some enemy types if you ever feel like playing that game.
I'm not even sure you need to have played any of the gears games to get enjoyment out of Judgment.
Also, You should play Gears 3.
Not really no, but for the unlocked Aftermath campaign will make more sense if you've played Gears 3. Also, you should really play Gears 3. But try out Judgement first. If you happen to like Judgement, chances are you're going to like Gears 3 too.
