Gears of War was one of the BEST looking games on the Xbox360, possibly the planet. Now we have the continuation of the story in Gears of War 2. New enemies, new weapons and few new play mechanics. We can still chainsaw enemies, but now we can hold them up as human meat shields – awesome! Another good thing is that if you are ‘downed’ you can crawl to hide or try to get helped up.
This game is almost no different from Gears 1, but does add a little excitement to the game. The best part of Gears 2 is that you can have friends (or strangers) join you in a game that is running or they can drop out and you continue playing uninterrupted unlike Gears 1. This is GREAT! The Horde Mode is what saved the game in my book.
Horde is where you fight wave after wave of horde enemies. Eve wave being harder than the last. Actually it does not start getting hard until level 17. There’s a total of 50 waves, can you survive? Prove it! The only bad thing about this game is the Quick Matching has gone to craps. It takes WAY too long to match-up, up to seven minutes at times. Why? And one last thing, this game has more bugs than part one. But again, it is still enjoyable, but for $59.99, bugs included should have made it $39.99. Other than that, the GAME is really cool!
Who This Game is For: college students, sci-fi war lovers, sci fi fans, gorey horror lovers
