Ace Gamez previews Gears of War 2

This November, Epic Games will release Gears of War 2 exclusively on Xbox 360, sequel to the 4.5 million selling super hit original. Even amidst a slew of potentially triple A exclusives released on 360 over the notoriously busy winter period, including such heavyweights as Fable 2 and Halo Wars, it will be down to Gears of War 2 to spearhead Microsoft's charge for Christmas sales success.

If anything, this is testament to just how important a franchise Gears of War has become to Microsoft - surely the console's second biggest name, falling only slightly short of the mighty Halo.

Gears of War 2 doesnt look to have improved much graphically, a few new things gameplay wise, but not the huge leap forward I was expecting...please dont take this as bashing because I feel exactly the same way about Resistance 2(and I LOVED part 1)...maybe I just set my expectations too high for these sequels..

Gears2 will definitely sell 4 to 5 million. I hope they fix the lag and host shotgun.
