Gears of War 2 is exactly what a sequel should be, folks. It improves on the things that gamers complained about in the first game, it ramps up the storyline, and likely leaves room for a third installment as well. It cranks up the single player and online modes and makes for a great experience both online and off. This is a game worth buying a system for, if only just. It is not perfect, but it is certainly as close to the best game experience a gamer can have this generation, at least at this time.
