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.

Limited Edition contents:

  • "Beneath the Surface: An Inside Look at Gears of War 2" book including character profiles and concept art
  • Bonus DVD featuring making of footage, design galleries and promotional videos
  • Dominic and Maria Keepsake Photo
  • Steelbook DVD case
  • Exclusive Xbox LIVE gold-plated Lancer Assault Rifle unlock code (for online play only)

Game features:

  • 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.
  • 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.

 By far the best game I have ever played

I just want to start with the fact that I am not a fanboy. I have only had my Xbox a few months and have been playing the first gears of war for an even shorter amount of time. So I am not rating this game high just because I am a fan of the franchise but I am rating it high because of the excellent content

I got the game a day early and I played it until 2 in the morning today so I have had a fair amount of experience. Previous gears players will feel at home with the cover system and the active reloads. The weapons have remained virtually the same but with some more additions. The mortar is a weapon you pump up and release to shower bombs on you enemies. The flamer thrower (scorcher) is brilliant and kills as quickly as the shotgun does at close range. However at a distance you get to see your enemies' burn and run around screaming. There is also a new pistol that fires short bursts. I may have missed out some weapons I haven't come across yet so please forgive me.

Now for some of the new defining features that make this game so much better. The new beat downs add to the gore. You can perform a weapon specific beat down with Y or the good old faithful curb stomp with X. The meat shield involves picking up a downed enemy and taking him hostage. You use him as a human shield while you pick of enemies with your pistol. Or you can have the same shield affect by picking up a metal shield called the boom shield.

The matchmaking system has been improved greatly. You now look for team members and then look for an apposing team of the same skill all at the push of a button. You then vote for the game type and map before starting. Then you choose your character and the weapon you start with.

Anyways enough reviewing I want to get back to playing.

I loved the first Gears of War and I was sceptic about this one

But have no fear, this delivers in ways I've only ever seen presented in a golden loincloth with grapes

Better co-op, bigger badder guns, much more epic campaign and an improved multiplayer make this game stand out from the crowd of mega titles released recently

I have no problem at all recommending this game to everyone

 Just like marmite, you either love it or you hate it

Great campaign, Great graphics, great gameplay and great characters. The campaign is great with the new variety of different enemies but was a bit too short.
A lot of people dont see this game as a great success. I think it is that you just need to be good at the game because it is a very hard game to get used to. You will have to be a good at shooters to be good at gears and you will love it.

If you are not a great shooter I recommend you rent it out but if you are a great shooter definetly buy the game especially at this price, it is one of the best.
