Gears of War 2

- Xbox 360

Gears of War 1 was one of the flagship titles for Xbox 360. It was the game which set the standards in terms of graphical quality and production values. Another very important thing that it did was to play a very important role for marketing the unreal engine, which was then used by countless games on Xbox360 after that. It was the perfect third person shooter for the console.This was the...

Got my review copy three days ago and I steamed through the campaign. I really can't wait to do it again. The single player is heads and tails better then the first game, and the first one was really good. Graphically the game is amazing as well. They stuck with the same general art and feel, but they added enough color and detail to make it look a lot better. Don't believe whomever posted the...

Gears of War 2 basically takes place after Gears of War 1. Gears of War 2 has a great story, great multi-player, and is just so fun you will have lots of fun with this game! Upon purchasing Gears 2, you get a code for getting 5 free multiplayer maps from Gears 1. This adds to the multiplayer fun! I would have to say, playing Gears of War 2 with 4-9 other friends, on system link all next t...

I've been playing the game since it first came out. I also took my vacation just so I could be lazy around the house and play this all the time I wanted too. I am EXTREMELY disappointed in this game. The campaign is just alright at best. I like getting to know the characters a little bit better, but the ending?..come on, give me a break. No final boss? What kind of crap is that. As...

Gears of War 2 is a worthy sequel. It is everything Gears of War 1 was, and better. The Game added new weapons, a longer campagin, and so much more. I will start with the story. Set after the first game, Marcus and Dom are at a Hospital with their new trainee, Benjamin Carmine. Starting from here, the game becomes an adventure. The things you do in the story will no doubt suprise you....

I'm not here to use flowery language and try to write a pulitzer prize winning piece of criticism, let me just say that straight out. I'm a gamer, and I'm going to write about this game from the perspective of whether or not it is worth playing. First and foremost, let's discuss the gameplay. If you've played the first Gears of War game, then you know exactly what to expect here. The co...

I've mentioned before how much I loved the first Gears Of War. For its time there was nothing that even came close to it. Graphics were unbelievable. Controls were tight. The only way anyone could pick up any faults with the original was to compare it to later games. That being said it did have faults. But everything else over shadowed its faults. So Gears Of War 2 had some pretty big shoes to...

Gears of War has set the bar for most platforms. Gears of War 2 still looks Incredible but that Multiplayer search engine will be the death of that franchise. It Should've allowed players to search for smaller rooms. Loading time is so bad people is giving up. Some weapons and melee are over powered but that is playable to me atleast.The Problem is Gamers(incluing myself) want to click start an...

When I first played the original Gears game, I was amazed. It was a game that was breathtaking with its graphics and gameplay. The storyline was like watching an action movie, and the best part was that I controlled it all. I replayed the campaign several times and even with Gears 2 out I occasionally replay a chapter or two. Gears of War 2 is no different from the first. Now I don't mean...

One of the many disappointments of the holiday season was Gears Of War 2. In October last year, writing on the subject of sequels, I wrote that : “Nothing out there gives a development team more energy and drive than previous success but this also brings other problems into the fray like ego clashes, unreasonable pay demands and over ambitious game design.” Well it seems like I hit the nail on...

Gears of war 2 was easily the biggest game in 2008 for the xbox 360, after a rather empty half of the year - fans were obviously very excited about the release. The game was released to amazing sucess and critical acclaim, but is it really bigger, better and more badass? Graphics: The game looks amazing, great imaginative art style which is unique to Epic's games, even if Unreal pla...

The story picks up a short period after the first game, after the light mass bomb ended Gears 1. The locust have been regrouping from their severe bloody nose. Jacinto is the last city safe for humanity due to is foundation on bedrock. Dom is searching for his Missing wife Maria and delta squad are garrisoned in Jacinto. Imulsion sickness is on the rise as a new plague which can’t come at a mor...

Gears of War 2 is a much better game than the original in every way. It's longer, the story's slightly above mediocre, the graphics are better, and the environments have great variety. Gears of War 2 picks up right where the first one left off. You (Marcus) and Dom set off the light mass bomb (I think that's what it's called), and make it out crippling the Locust army in the process. Ho...

With Gears of War 3 set to be released in September, I couldn’t help myself but to replay the storyline epic, Gears of War 2. During my replay I remembered everything I utterly love about the franchise and why the second title is, so far, the best in the series. With it’s creative story telling and addictive gameplay, it rocked the video game world in 2008. The story for this title was absol...
