"It is among the hottest properties in gaming, and one of Xbox Live's most popular titles. The original Gears of War was a worldwide success, even breaking barriers in Japan. It has garnered awards, critical praise, and still remains one of the most played console titles this generation.
To say anticipation for Gears of War 2 has been huge is to put it mildly indeed. Epic Games' high profile sequel has been treated with the utmost of reverence from publisher Microsoft and is looking to be one of the most powerful weapons in the Xbox 360's Christmas arsenal. It released worldwide this Friday and already Xbox Live's servers are full to the gills with chainsaw deaths and screams of "revive me!"
