Excerpt: When the Locust emerged from the ground on November 12th, 2006 to ravage the surface of the planet Sera, so too did Gears of War emerge as a mega franchise for the Xbox 360. Less than two years later, we’re already being treated to a sequel.
Excerpt: The original Gears of War profiled itself as an epic action game that unraveled itself much like the well known blockbuster movies that end up in theatres every summer.

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...
Conclusion: Sound: hate marcus voice everything else is good multiplayer: horde was a saving grace for me in multiplayer. in the original the multiplayer felt more balanced, shotgun killed who it was suppose to kill, you didnt have freaking smoke grenades! and there just was a sense of originallity to the maps.
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.
Conclusion: I noticed the bad language has been tampered with. Oh and i nearly forgot the obvious question " Is the game in Japanese ? " well yes it is but if your Xbox is set to English then the whole game will be in English.
Summary: During my second tour of duty on the crumbling planet of Sera, I piloted a Reaver, performed heart surgery on a giant worm, and rode a Brumak to victory. It's just another day at the office for a 'roid raging sci-fi super-soldier.
