Totally agree. The story in Gears 2 is awesome and i feel the side story of Dom searching for his wife is an absolutely great story.

I have played through the game 3 times now, thats 3 more times than i played MGS4. I just felt the story was more interesting....but hey...i also love movies like Alien, Aliens, Predator, Ironman, Batman, Event horizon, Independence day, all the Die know, all the GUY movies that are packed non-stop with action, car chases, explosions....Just my taste.

I'm just now finishing up my first tour on normal so I can unlock Insane. I am vry happy with the way the story was told this time. It is much better fleashed out and refined. I did a double take at the end of Dom's side story at first and was oddly relieved when reality sunk in. That's some twisted stuff. Kinda like Tai. ;)

I can't say I really cared for the story personally. The gameplay is pretty tight and well refined when compared to the original, and co-op is something that every game should make a priority of having as its so well done here. But the story? I don't see it as anything special. Much of it just felt forced to me, and the appearance of characters like the Locust Queen never being explained set it up as an obvious middle title in a trilogy, which I can't really fault it for I suppose.

Gears is best as an action hero movie cliche, it does that great. Trying to shoehorn in drama feels too... lame. Still, doesn't drag the game down all things considered. But so far I could never care for Marcus or his friends in the way that I do Solid Snake or Aerith.

Gears 2 has a great campaign mode but the boss battles suck. After watching trailers for the boss with the chainsaw spear (skorge), I was pumped. But when you play it, the battle is weak. Also the last boss in the game is a major leaugue disappointment. I hate reviews now because they are part of the hype machine. The multiplayer is the worst part of the game and reviews never mention these flaws. For example, you can't really pick what game mode you want to play in a public match. You can only pick the game type. If you want to play warzone, you have to pick elimination game type that includes execution, warzone, and team leader. Then you vote and pry that everybody votes for warzone. That's bullshit. Also in horde mode, if i want to continue at the wave that i last left off on, like wave 28 out of 50 i can't in a public match. i have to start over. That's stupid. Matchmaking takes a year and a day to load and there is lag like nobody's business but all the reviews fail to mention any of this. So who cares if it sold 2 million, because i still can do what i could do in so many other multiplayer games. Its sad because gears of war was one of my favorite games.

I don't really care about reviews any more I just use them to see if the game flopped.
I did not like GTA4 that much along with the small amide of gears 2 i played.
review do not determine whether that game is fun or not.

Wii play has been on the top ten selling games for a long time now and it sucks sales mean nothing.

the wii is selling more then any other console on the market does that mean that it is the best system? I think not.

who said the story was great? during a part of the story i was laughing my ass off with dom's serious moment. i think its during the first 2 acts. mad about maria. hilarious. also when dizzy(cowboy) screams when you fail to pass a bridge. its the best part of the game

Oh look I can be a hard guy too! I don't have emotions and laugh at sad parts of games/movies/life! Yay for masculinity!
