Gears of War 2 keeps what made the first game great but improved on their gameplay and story.

User Rating: 9.5 | Gears of War 2 X360
If you are a fan of a great story than you are going to love this series. The first game showed the world what they had making one of the best shooters and one of the best stories of the year. This game improves on that great base and gives you more.

This game picks up six months from where you (Marcus Fenix) left off at the end of the first game as you continue to battle the Locust hordes. These powerful creatures are now taking down entire cities and humans have become desperate in search for a way to end the war.

On the whole this story continues in a great way and they gameplay isn't altered too much despite small improvements in the shooting and awesome new weapons. Gears has certainly made a name for itself and this franchise has something they can build on for years to come.
