Six months after the successful detonation of the Light Mass Bomb in the heart of the Locust Horde tunnel complex, mankind's struggle with the aliens on the planet Sera continues. The surviving Locusts are on the move, having discovered a way to dig sinkholes under the previously impregnable Jacinto Plateau – humanity's last refuge.

In this third-person shooter, you play as Marcus Fenix, the leader of the Delta Squad that set off the bomb as he builds a new squad around the survivors from that mission. To save humanity, your team must return to the heart of the Locust nest.

Built on the Unreal Tournament 3 Engine, Gears of War 2 expands upon the original in both the game world and playability. Ambient Occlusion modeling adds more realistic lighting and shading to objects and characters. A new communal combat system allows players of different difficulty settings can play together with equal challenges. Multiple save files allow you to work with drop-in/drop out co-operative play. Team up with other players on Xbox Live for challenging missions and head-to-head combat. New weapons and adversaries have been added including a fearsome new creature that is even more lethal than the Brumak.

3 out of 5 eggsehhhh

Pros: Good Graphics, Good Contols, Awesome weapons, huge battles.

Cons: Campaign takes place too much underground. I like the street battles and they had barely any of those in this game. The online still sucks and probably alwayss will suck. The story in the game was really weak and the final battle wasn't even really a battle.

Other Thoughts: Huge and I mean Huge let down from the first game.

5 out of 5 eggsOne of the best single player games ever!

Pros: This game continues the story of the first Gears of War. There is now much more action and variety of maps, enemies and bosses throughout the whole game. Each new level brings new surprises and innovative gameplay. The story itself is more developed and presented much better than in the first title.
The graphics and physics engine have been heavily updated: There is no more excessive bloom effects, the maps are much bigger, there are many more enemies on the screen at the same time, the textures are sharper and the framerate does not drop throughout the whole game (that was a big issue in the first Gears). The physics are much more believable now, there are even realistically modeled bullet paths unlike the cartoony drawings in the first game.

Cons: While the physics are much improved for walking characters... the tank still feels light and drives like a TYCO R/C toy!?!?! That is a shame, because otherwise the tank level is pretty fun... at least it's short.
Multiplayer is pretty much useless, even more so than in the first game.

Other Thoughts: I don't understand why people give this game a bad rating because of multiplayer??? This is a single player game... you can tell all effort was spent towards improving the story campaign! Besides, Epic makes one of the best multiplayer titles in history: Unreal Tournament. People looking to frag online should get that game and have fun.
In my opinion, this is one of the top 5 action games of all time!

5 out of 5 eggsGame Play

Pros: The new features like Bots, Horde, and Collectables are bring different people to the Gears of War series the massive multiplayer game play is one of the best new features I would totallty advise you to get this game.

Cons: If you think gears of war 2 is like the first one you mistaken... this one is way better. the campaing doesn't have as many of those waiting talks where you sit there and watch videos you interact but the best new thing is Horde and bots. The Bots in this game even though casual is to bots it's like your average gamer who has played most gun games and knows the controls, when you put the difficulty on hardcore its way harder you find yourself against Bots that can detect if your watching them or if your running from them. At hardcore they also use different stratagies. I would say to buy this game ASAP.

Other Thoughts: No longer do you have to play alone you could play with computer controlled Bots it's Better than My imaginary Friends!

3 out of 5 eggsNot worth it

Pros: The game has amazing Graphics. The Textures are amazing, this game was pretty much written for HD playing. The lighting and the sound are awesome. This is a great single player game with Horde mode being another awesome game type.

Cons: Multiplayer. Problably THE MOST UNBALANCED AND GLITCHIEST MULTIPLAYER GAME, EVER. Atleast 1/4 games, the host "host lags" to be cheap to lag you OUT but they stay unaffected. Everyone uses either the shotgun or boomshot, absolutely NO variety. The ranking system is practically garbage, i had a KD of 7 for practically 4 rounds and i didnt level up.

Honestly, if this game was balanced, it would be a good game, but the game is so unbalanced.

Other Thoughts: The game is essential still broken, after the awesome SP, there is no reason to play other than horde, and after you beat it on level 50, theres no point to it.

5 out of 5 eggsLive by the COG

Pros: Engaging campaign. Excellent controls. Awesome CO-OP. Music by Steve Jablonski. Graphics are pretty amazing for a console game. Great sound effects and voice acting. Fun multiplayer. Nice Achievements. Meat Shields and Mulcher.

Cons: Only 2 player co-op for campaign. 5 player co-op is Horde mode only. Long waiting time before playing a multiplayer match. Minor glitches and bugs but shouldn't be a big deal. Combustible map pack (3 multiplayer maps) costs 800ms=$10 online thats $3 per map plus an extra dollar for listing.

Other Thoughts: Gears Of War 2 is a fun and immersive game. Although not very polished it's a great title and must own. If you liked Gears of War, you'll love this game. If you haven't played the first game you'll love it anyways. I like how the game's campaign mode makes you feel like a bad *** soldier. Don't wait, buy it.
