"In conclusion, Gears of War 2 pretty much reminded me why I loved the original so much. It doesn't pretend to be anything that it isn't. It makes no real effort to revolutionize the franchise, and I guess I just have to content myself with that. It's very true that Gears of War 2 feels very much like its processor, but simultaneously, there's absolutely no denying the massive amount of content that it has added. With its wealth of new multiplayer options, amazing new weapons (including my favorite -the flamethrower) an action-packed campaign, and an addictive and awesome "Horde" mode, Gears of War 2 may not be 2008's most innovative or original titles (I'm reserving that title for Little Big Planet or Mirror's Edge), but I'll be damned if it's not one of the most fun and enjoyable."
