    Strong campaign spoiled by medicore multiplayer makes Gears of War 2 an inferior yet somewhat satisfying sequel.

    Gears of War 2 is one of the best games to be released on the xbox 360. I have never played such an immersive and beautiful game such as this. The story is top-notch and the multiplayer is fantastic. ...

    Rated on August 16, 2009 by AdaptUK0
