G3 gives its take in its review of the Snowblind Map Pack for Gears of War 2.
Excerpt: "Lastly we come to my favourite and ultimatley what I think is one of the best Gears maps. It's called Courtyard. This is going to be a great map for Horde. It is wide, and open and big. The bottom part of the map is a courtyard. Wide, open and lots of cover make this a great area for fighting. It's not that simple though, a large set of stairs in the middle of the courtyard lead up to an upper level overlooking the courtyard. Here is where snipers will have fun as they pick off people in the courtyard. The entire map is very open so line of sight is very clear. There is a little nook underneath the set of stairs that does provide some hiding space but it is easy to get trapped and flanked. I tried out Horde here for a few rounds and I think people are really going to enjoy Horde on this map."
