Gears of War 2 is the highly anticipated sequel to the 5 million-selling blockbuster action game and one of the most popular Xbox 360 games in history.

Players continue as Marcus Fenix, a reluctant war hero and leader of Delta Squad, six months after the events of "Gears of War." The last cities on Sera are sinking, swallowed by a new Locust threat from below. A massive counterattack is humanity's last hope for survival. Gears of War 2 blends a best-in-class third-person shooter with unsurpassed high-definition visuals, all layered on top of an engaging story of survival, loss and retribution. Gears of War 2 is developed by Epic Games exclusively for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system.
  • Suitable for 18 years and over. Not for sale to persons under age 18. By purchasing this product, you declare that you are 18 years of age and over.

Unparalleled gameplay: Gears of War 2 takes the award-winning gameplay of the original and improves upon it in every way. The genre-defining cover system is further refined, making the "stop and pop" gameplay more intuitive. Dynamic cover is given new meaning as downed opponents can be picked up and used as shields. The intimate violence of the battlefield is heightened when combatants engage in chainsaw duels. Destructible environments and vicious new finishing moves add to the over-the-top experience.

    Jaw-dropping visuals: Gears of War 2 continues to raise the graphics bar through its breathtaking visual effects, made possible through advances in Unreal Engine 3

      Engaging experience that pulls you in and won't let go: Gears of War 2 takes deep and immersive storytelling in videogames to greater heights. Players connect with humanity's battle for survival on a personal level as they move through a story that introduces new characters and sheds light on the histories of familiar ones.

        Expanded cooperative play: Team up with a friend to fight through the harrowing story of Delta Squad in the enhanced campaign mode, now featuring drop-in/drop-out gameplay, as well as individual player difficulty options. Or recruit four friends to battle in the new game mode "Horde," where you'll fight together to fend off a seemingly endless onslaught of Locust forces to attain the highest score.

          Fierce and varied competitive multiplayer action. Gears of War 2 features eight distinct multiplayer modes, including the new Wingman, Guardian and Submission modes, where up to 10 players choose a side and pit their courage and battlefield mettle directly against others. In addition, multiplayer bots are available to sharpen your skills offline or to fill out your online private matches on Xbox LIVE.

           Great Game, Bad GOTY Package

          | | See all Anakes's reviews (6)

          This game has been reviewed countless times before so i will not bore you with the details of the game, this review is for the GOTY package and in all honesty its just plain bad.

          This GOTY does indeed include all the map packs and the extra campaign chapter thats on the xbox live marketplace, however the content comes in the form of a code on a piece of card that you scratch off and imput on xbox live, other GOTY editions out there like the new Fable 2 one, the previous Oblivion GOTY and the upcoming Fallout 3 GOTY were smart enough to include the content on the main game disc or on a second disc so you can use it again and again, this game does no such thing so basically once you have used the code it ceases to be a GOTY editon of Gears 2.

          In closing, the game is great but is letdown by a sub-par GOTY edition that other games do so much better.

           Doesn't get any better than this.

          Xtra campaign level can be played twice for 2 good achievements.Maps bring Horde bang up to date with new content and favourites from the first game.Still loads of people playing this online and plenty newbs like me (lvl 27) lol.not mad about the multiplayer however you rank up playing horde which is even better with friends and randoms alike.

           The GREATEST game of all time (Well... so far)

          Firstly the game has a fantastic campaign which can be played single player, local 2 player split screen co-op or online 2 player co-op. There are 4 diffficulty levels available to choose, from casual for beginners, up to Insane for the more experienced and you can select these individually which is great for 2 gamers of different skill levels. With a gripping storyline and excellent characters, the campaign will keep you engaged for hours! Apart from that you have the online multi-player mode which can also be played local split-screen by 2 people (even if the 2nd player doesn't have a Xbox live Gold account!). There are plenty of different games to choose from with plenty of different maps aswell.
          All in all the game is outstanding and there is LOADS of reply value with the online side of things.
          With this "Game Of The Year Edition" having the extra campaign level and 3 extra map packs already included, this is well worth it if you can get it for a decent price to save paying extra to download these online Xbox live.

           Great campaign and fun multiplayer

          I am aware that it's not really necessary for me to write this review, as this game is rather old and already has been reviewed by pretty much every single major gaming website there is right now. But I'm bored, and I really enjoyed this game, and I feel like writing out a review.

          So, Gears of War 2 is a pretty amazing little game. Whether or not you liked the first game in the series, I'd highly suggest picking this one up. I loved Gears of War, and it was one of the first games I played on an Xbox 360 way back. The story was very well written, I loved how badass everyone were, even though I find it a bit stupid att imes, a bit cliche if you want.

          The story pretty much picks up where the last one ended, some time along. Once again you will have to fight the disgusting monsters lurking below, and you'll have to go underground and take on beasts a hundred times your size. The combat system is highly similar to that of the original, with some minor improvements with regards to reaction. Of course, the game is linear, though there are some parts where you can pick from two different paths. It doesn't matter which one you pick as you'll end up in the same spot, and I can almost guarantee you'll play this game twice, so you'll be able to get all the content.

          The multiplayer is really fun. Though it's tough to play online for a noobie like me, I think it's absolutely awesome to play with a couple of my buddies. I still get crushed and destroyed, but like most other shooter games, be it 3rd person or 1st person, it just is a lot more fun when y ou can smack talk your buddies. There's a variety of different game modes and the lobbies are highly customizable, so you can really do whatever you want when you play with a couple of buddies.

          My only complaint is that the matchmaking system online will place you against people on an entirely different skill level more often than not, and you'll often get crushed or simply destroy the opposing team. The campaign, though amazing and great fun, cuold definitely be longer.
