The gameplay is great, story is solid and the online is still playable. You may ask what are the problems here? Are there any? Well all games have problems and Gears of War 2 is no exception. GOW2 is simply the same game with a more in depth story and a few new weapons. They game suffers from Halo syndrome heavily. The same game with a continued story and nothing really heavily changed. Among that the new weapons are just overall for show more than for use in the end.
