Jury is out!

by cnumb on 11/27/2008

Sorry - In my honest opinion,it's just an "ok" game. Just as short as the first one. Solo play on "Normal mode" plays like easy mode. Too many cut scenes, the fighting action is short-lived. Graphics are off the wall. Can't speak about the multiplayer / online experience but I definitely feel that the trend is to satisfy the online gamers whereas the solo players are given a so so game. To qualify as a great game the solo and multiplayer/online play should both be at the same level of play. Read More

YESNO

A Worthy Sequel

by T. Gomez on 12/5/2008

Gears of War 2 is a worthy sequel to the groundbreaking original game. The game introduces several new weapons, enemies, and game modes that help to keep the series fresh. The campaign is good with varied environments, but the multiplayer is where the most fun is to be had. I especially like the Horde mode where you and up to four friends fight off wave after wave of enemies to see if you can beat all fifty levels, very addictive. The graphics are some of the best you will see on the 360. overall a fun challenging game with great replay value. If you like shooting games this will be money well spent. Read More
