Short answer, yes! Mainly due to Epic resisting the temptation to do too much tinkering, after all if it's not broke don't fix it. Gears of Wars 2 is set six months after the first game and the Locust have grown so powerful they are now able to sink entire cities. Jacinto is the sole surviving city and Marcus and Dom must once again take the battle to the Locust Hordes in a desperate attempt to aid humanity's survival."
