Is this worth getting?

I was looking up some videos of the multiplayer in Judgement and I was wondering if I should get this game. I liked the multiplayer in the first 3 games, and I wanted to know if the multiplayer is just as good as the first 3.

Also, what about the singleplayer campaign? I've heard some good and bad. I've also been thinking about picking this up.

I never did any Gears multiplayer much, except for campaign co-op. But I'm loving Judgment. It's possibly my second-favorite of the series (nearly tied with Gears 2). Loved the option to do declassified missions, with little change-ups that add variety and make things a bit more challenging.

They did shake up the control scheme a bit. Now you carry only two weapons and tap "Y" to switch between them, and grenades have their own dedicated button. Some people hated this but I got used to it very easily.

The other major complaint people had is that it messes with the fiction a little. It's a prequel but there are Lambent Locust in some of the missions, which breaks the established timeline. But I'm sorry, if you're playing Gears for the story, you're kind of doing it wrong.

One thing I thought was both good and bad was the reduction in "dudebro". Hearing these meatheads' banter over the first 3 games, it became kind of endearing. They're toned down quite a bit here, especially Cole Train. Which surprised me considering People Can Fly (Bulletstorm) developed this game. On one had, it makes it easier to take seriously. On the other... there's a lot of juvenile amusement lost.

Anyway, long story less long, I thought it was absolutely worth playing, and it should be under $20 now.

I'm only interested in the single/co-op campaigns of the Gears game, so I'm interested in hearing opinions on this as well.
