Winner: 2008 Video Game Awards; Best Shooter, Best Xbox 360 Game.
Gears of War 2 is the sequel to the ground-breaking Xbox 360 game, Gears of War.
In this sequel, You continue the fight for Sera as Marcus Fenix, a Sergeant in the army of the Coalition of Governments (the COG). You and your squad need to find a way to eliminate the Horde threat once and for all, while at the same time looking for the wife of your best friend.
The graphics are about on par with the original Gears, but hteres more cutscenes and storyline in this sequel. My wife even commented: "This is a gore game, theres no room for sappy plotline!".
To those gamers with young children, you'll be pleased to know there are built in game controls that can censor out strong language, and turn spurting blood into a shower of sparks as you viciously chainsaw through Locust. Can you tell I'm a bit biased to this game? :)
Well worth the full $60 list price.
- Good storyline
- Excellent Graphics and AI
- In Game achievement tracking
- More easily completed than the first (remember RAAM?)
