Excerpt: "Gears Of War 2 on sitä mitä nimikin jo lupailee; kuin alkuperäinen Gears Of War, mutta tuplana tarjoiltuna. Kaikkea on enemmän ja isompana. Pelattavuudeltaan samaa loistotasoa kuin edeltäjänsäkin ja takuuvarma hitti ykkösosan fanien keskuudessa. Varsin toimiva jatko-osa pelisarjan kolmatta osaa odotellessa, johon viittaa pieni palkinto niille, jotka jaksavat katsoa pelin lopputekstit kokonaisuudessaan lävitse...
Pros: + Pelattavuus, + Moninpeli, + Grafiikka ja äänet, + Uudet aseet tuovat vaihtelua
What Grinds My Gears! – Gears Of War 2: Reviewed (360)
7 September 2013
Excerpt: It’s been a 2 year gap since the first Gears hit the shelves to much critical acclaim. The story was entertaining, if not a little short. The multiplayer was enjoyable, if not lacking a little in variety and substance, but that didn’t stop Epic’s first major foray out of their Unreal comfort zone from becoming a fast selling and much loved hit.
Excerpt: You can’t start a Gears review with anything but graphics discussion. There is essentially no way for me to adequately describe how awesome this game looks. I had to stop many a time (when not being eaten by various things) to stare in awe at how beautiful everything was. Everything you’d want graphic-wise is present in full force.

Pros: Awesome effects, Sweeping and amazing environments, Good lip sync, Nice high-res textures on everything, Fitting score, Awesome voice acting, Smoothed out controls, More poignant story, Spectacular single-console multiplayer
Cons: Water when taken in huge quantities behaves strangely, Not any real improvement over the first Gears, Kind of short, Last boss is a disappointment
Excerpt: No one was surprised when Gears of War went on to sell truckloads of copies. It looked good, it was made by a tried and trusted team, and most of all, it was the most visceral action game consoles have ever seen. If you had testosterone in your body, Gears of War was likely an [...] . . .
Conclusion: In summation, Gears of War 2 is as good a shooter you've played all year. In fact, it's as good as any shooter you've probably played to date. With its stunning graphical presentation, varied level design and enemies that never get boring are all the ingredients of a game that every Xbox 360 owner should own, and every fan of a shooter should seriously consider investing in.
Conclusion: If you've forgotten just how much fun Gears' 2 multiplayer can be, whether co-op campaign, Horde mode or straight-up ranked play takes your fancy, now would be the time to step back into the fray.
Excerpt: The way that the developer went on about the story of Gears of War 2 you would have thought it was the deepest thing ever, well the reality is very different, as whilst it’s an improvement over the original, it’s not exactly vast enough to announce it from the rooftops with great enthusiasm.

14 October 2009
