TVGB writes: "Along with Call of Duty: World at War and Street Fighter IV, Gears of War 2 proved to be one of the more popular games at the Eurogamer Expo. Tucked away at the very back of the exhibition hall, behind an impermeable 10 foot high barrier, hid the frantic multiplayer action, safe from those who didn't fit the '+18 only' bracket. Despite there being a queue that was constantly increasing in numbers, those with extreme patience were able to get multiple rounds of 4 v 4 annex on the brand new maps in Gears of War 2.
Having played the first Gears of War an insane amount of times (see what I did there?) I was keen to see whether a number of the criticisms directed towards the multiplayer have been fixed."
