Gears of War 2 improves on the first one in every way. The story is bigger and better told; the action is heavier and even more exciting. The controls are a lot tighter.
Playing co-op with a friend is, as always, the best way to go and Horde mode will keep you busy for an extremely long time to come. It is a great feeling to get this excited about a franchise all over again and Gameplanet can't wait to see what they do with Gears of War 3!
