If you enjoyed Gears multiplayer you'll find a lot to like in the sequel--probably enough to warrant a purchase alone. And if Gears multiplayer wasn't your cup of tea, you still might want to take a look at the following breakdown, as Epic has provided a mix of both cooperative and wacky modes that may pique your interest.
And it's not just about the new maps and modes. A party system will now allow players to easily group up and stick together across matches. Achievements can now be earned in multiplayer mode. A new photo mode and ghost camera have been added."
