"With Gears 2, the bad outweighed the good.
From what I remember it took EPIC a total of seven, that’s right SEVEN, title updates to fix various glitches, bugs and matchmaking problems before they finally got it right.
Unfortunately it was too little too late for Gears 2...
This is where the Gears of War 3 Multiplayer BETA enters.
EPIC seems to have listened to the criticism of gamers and have made the matchmaking in Gears 3 spot on off the bat."
