Sarcasticgamer.com reviews the single player campaign of Gears of War 2.
From the Review: "Gears of War. It was the game that got me into next-gen gaming. I remember seeing and reading about the game in the months before it's release and thinking, "now it's time to upgrade." Importantly, the game did not disappoint. Despite the naysaying from the Monday morning quarterback clubs across the internets, I enjoyed the game, the goofy story, the "stop" and "pop" combat mechanic. The co-op was fun and while the single player campaign was a bit short, I did play it through a number of times, in co-op and on higher difficulty levels, which is more than I can say for Call of Duty 4 and Halo 3".
