|Get your hands on the most complete Gears of War 2 experience available! The Gears of War 2: Limited Edition includes the following bonus materials:
This is a wonderful game. How the graphics can be improved so greatly is beyond me. Gears one is still a beautiful game, a game I love replaying. Gears two is much much better. Some of the game play is harder, the level designs are "epic", and the graphics & lighting, wow, the graphics and lighting, they take your breathe away.
I Was hoping to buy this because it says "Limited Edition" in the picture, and i wanted the golden Lancer code, and got it and it was limited Collectors edition, All in all it came in handy for my little bro, got a new game and some map packs.
Just one of those games you need to play2/5/2009
Gears of war is one of the best games out for any system right now. The gameplay is revolutionary and the graphics are some of the best i've seen on a console. If you are a fan of gears then get the special edition; if not then maybe the regular edition would be best.
A Must Buy For a GOW Fan1/1/2009
The game is itself is fantastic. Graphics have definitely been improved over the first of GOW. However, GOW2 has a great storyline. Epic Games really created an epic game this time round. The Bonus dvd is nice. The artbook is really cool and includes a little history to the game. The flashback maps are nice and the golden lancer is really cool. The golden lancer isn't better than the regular one, just gold. The LE version is a must buy for a GOW fan.
Great Game Overall12/21/2008
This is a great game, it has a good story mode and the multiplayer mode is even better. The addition of horde in multiplayer makes for an exciting challenge that can eat away at days while you try to make it through 50 waves of locusts. The replay value is not as great as other games but the achievements do keep you busy...if that's your thing. I bought this for the same price my friends paid for the "regular" version of the game. Check for coupons you can use and springing for the limited edition may not be so painful.
Gears is great12/6/2008
This is a great game, but not for the kids. Please pay attention to the ESRB ratings, they are not arbitrary. They do mean something. The collectors edition comes with an extra DVD that has a few bonus features as well as a code for the gold lancer, and the DVD has exclusive gamerpics also. The extra multiplayer maps come with every new copy of the game, collectors edition or not. It is a way to persuade you to buy new I guess. So far they are not up for download, so you cannot even buy the maps if you wanted to, you just have to get the game new. If you want detailed reviews, check out metacritic. It is fun, great with friends. There have been some issues with matchmaking, but I have not experienced them. All in all a must have for the MATURE gamer, and certainly not for kids or those who do not appreciate violence. Fortunately, you can turn off bad language and gore in the options, so that is nice, but even with those both off, it would still warrant an M rating.
Definately worth spending the extra money on. You get more Multiplayer Maps. The other extras are worth it as well. You can get it for $30 dollars off if you can get their credit card as well.
