    Bring It!

    Gears 2 is such a good game that I was compelled to write this review. In it, I'll discuss the major focal points of the game. Note, however, that I do not cover the online multiplayer, as the only online component I pla... Read Full Review

    Best Xbox 360 game period!

    I've now played this game since it first hit the market.The single player is great fun and of the hardest difficulty quite a challenge; however, the multiplayer far exceeds any first person shooter to date. The dynamic m... Read Full Review

    Gears Of War II Review

    After Gears Of War I was released it was a good game but lacked some key elements that the sequel; Gears Of War II makes up for. GOW2's graphics have improved a lot from the original GOW1 graphics. In GOW1 most of the co... Read Full Review

    If it's your first tiem playing, it may be hard to get into, but it's worth it. Veterans will feel right at home though.

    I honestly found this game awesome and fun, but I believe that it didn't live up to the hype. It's campaign was just the best campaign shooter I have played so far. It changes from a firefight to a battle on a boat. A... Read Full Review

    Very good but not enough to leave life on it.

    Repetitive in many places, repeating the same formula of the previous game. Leaves nothing to the imagination. The action is detailed. But not spectacular. The story is predisposed. Best and saving the game is the ... Read Full Review

    Great action game, very solid physics with satisfyingly powerful weapons.

    For maximum enjoyment of this game it's best played co-op with a buddy. The glee that spreads across your face when you hit that perfect headshot can only be matched by the thrill of shredding three enemies at once with ... Read Full Review

    Gears of War 2 is an awesome game with insane graphics, and a beastly campaign.

    Gears of War is easily one of the best games of 2008 for many reasons. The campaign, Horde mode, the graphics, all epic. The story is a well written sci-fi one, with awesome characters(ESPECIALLY Marcus Fenix, he's proba... Read Full Review
