"Many associate the Halo franchise with the Xbox, but it is Gears of War which I pair with the Xbox 360. In 2006, it was Epic Games' next gen baby which greeted me with open burly arms and jaw dropping looks. It wasn't perfect, but it was the beginning of an impressive franchise. I promised myself not describe Gears of War 2 like how Mr. Blezinski did, but what he said was true. This sequel is everything Gears of War was, but better – and from a gameplay perspective, it makes the original completely obsolete. So, if you are shooter fan with an Xbox 360 under the TV and haven't played this yet, what are you waiting for? There's simply no excuse not to play one of the best this console generation has to offer."
