Gears of War 2
Having never played the first, I went at this game with a totally fresh set of eyes. Microsoft and Epic Games have come up trumps with this, a truly stunning, spectacle. The gameplay is solid, the graphics are stunning and the storyline is gripping. With masses of weaponry and enemies to slay, you will never get bored of this. The team mentality is an integral part to the game too. Well worth the asking price.
