The single-player campaign is an absolute thrill ride while the promise of co-op play and the myriad of online features add a healthy shelf-life to the title--one that will surely see returns to your console throughout the months to come. If you were a fan of Gears of War, then this title is a must-buy. There's just more of everything this time around: there's more story, more action, more variety, and more online offerings than you can possibly tackle in your first few days with the game. Unlike other big titles this fall, Gears of War 2 is all about buckling in for a ride. And what a ride it is!
