Eurogamer: Gears of War 2 Review

Eurogamer writes:

...Because rather than reinventing an experience that was already ticking over fairly nicely, Gears 2 builds on the first game's framework at every opportunity. The game's opening teaser - an exhilaratingly familiar fifteen minutes in a Locust-infested hospital - could have been sliced out of the original title, but from that point on Epic's designers head for ground less beaten, switching pace, scrambling objectives, and mixing up the scenery. There are new vehicles, including the mutant offspring of an Advance Wars tank and a white-trash monster truck, a handful of weighty additions to the arsenal, and a few fresh enemies. There are even new moves - including a range of charmingly brutal finishers, the option to use downed Locusts as shields, and the frantic chainsaw duals...

OMG! a 9.

Skywalker3334034d ago

yes, they did! Eurogamer is reaaaaly strange when it comes to grading!
but from what i read, Gears 2 is far better than 1. and that makes it a GREAAAAAT game!

Metal Gear Solid 4 is the best exclusive of the Year

Good Score.

Now for the GotY award.. we will see..

SCThor4034d ago

Gears will have a special mention

Panthers4034d ago

I gotta agree. I want to play through MGS again but I will wait for trophies.

HateBoy4034d ago

He said GAME of the year, not B-movie or advanced level creator.

airheadluffy4033d ago


you are really good at hating. i guess thats why your name is hateboy.

i have lbp and mgs4 and i think mgs4 has one of the best stories and battles ive ever played. im halfway in lbp and im loving it. the levels are so fun and the level creator is amazing. they are both legit contenders for goty.

It's a bit on the low side considering Eurogamer is clearly MS affiliated (just look at the front page or the reviews, or the articles, if you doubt it's a MS fanboy site).

Fishy Fingers4034d ago

Not sure Id be quite so dramatic, but I do prefer (Portugal).

La Chance4034d ago (Edited 4034d ago )

they gave the fisrt Gears 8/10.

Now what do have to say ?

edit : oh , looks like you have nothing to say.

krakdol4034d ago (Edited 4034d ago )

I have to say it's an exception, like when your 360 doesn't RROD on you, you know ;)

I have dozens of examples which show you're wrong, like the LBP review, or Resistance 2, or Motorstorm... Or Fable 2 which got 10/10 and was not even AAA according to metacritic (89 %).

Now what do you have to say ?

edit : oh , looks like you have nothing to say.

Panthers4034d ago

I do have to admit that the site is a bit green on the front page lol.
