6 October 2011
  • 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.

Gears Of War 2 - DLC - All Fronts Collection Review

PlayDevil
14 October 2009
  • Summary: At first glance the latest batch of Gears of War 2 downloadable content ( All Fronts Collections ) may seem a little expensive at 1600ms points but once you realise that it is in fact all previous packs combined into one then it seems to be good value.

Gears of War 2: Dark Corners

Xbox Evolved
16 August 2009
  • Summary: Overall, I found there were a great variety of maps included in Dark Corners and the All Fronts Collection is a mighty sweet combo pack. These 7 maps bring a new flavor to the Gears world of online play. Road to Ruin is not a strong chapter and it’s clear it was deleted for a reason.
  • Pros: New deleted chapter, every map pack released to date, great maps.
  • Cons: For those who already purchased any/all of the map packs, All Fronts is not for you.

Gears of War 2 review (X360)

  • Excerpt: . But it's also masterfully paced, broken up every so often by a spectacular set-piece or a superb on-rails vehicular section. Combat is as effortlessly brilliant as before, with the landmark cover-system playing a predictably huge role.

  • Excerpt: A sequel to last year's runaway smash, Gears of War 2 has the same no-neck soldiers battling alien hordes. Again. More of the same, yes, but the same old excellence.

Gears of War 2

Video Game Generation
25 November 2008
  • Summary: Now, even with the serious third-act problems in the game’s script and the uninspired characters, this is still a very good game. After all, Gears 2 is, first and foremost, an action game. It’s raison d’etre is to amuse and entertain, the emphasis on gunfire and testosterone. The developers went into the game specifically with action and tight gameplay in mind, and those aspects of the game absolutely sparkle.
  • Pros: Gameplay is very tight, Horde mode is a joy to play, Excellent Co-op mode
  • Cons: Story is painful to watch, as are characters, Competitive online is in serious need of tweaking

Gears of War 2: All Fronts Collection DLC Review

zConnection International
10 August 2009
  • Conclusion: Gears of War 2 remains one of the best third-person shooters on the 360, and when played with and against the right kind of people, it also makes up one of the most entertaining online experiences around. As great as the game is, the technical issues and third party exploits severely hamper the fun.
