Guardian.co.uk writes: "Three weeks ago Greg and I attended a Gears of War 2 press event in London. A dozen or so journalists were put up in the St Martins Lane hotel near Trafalgar Square and allowed to play the game all night. The multiplayer modes were running downstairs in a large conference suite, but we also had an Xbox 360 and a copy of the game in each of our own rooms. The results were embargoed until today.
Here's what I took from my ten or so hours with the game. Greg's point-of-view will be different, I'm almost certain. This isn't a review, because I didn't finish it, it's a sort of first response, written a day afterwards.
Just to give you a hint: I bloody loved it."
