Summary: I brought this to add to my collection of Gear's. I also thought that because it said new it would have come with the golden lancer code but it didn't. To much work to complain about it and figure out why it wasn't with it or if it was new in the first place and was just re-sealed.
Summary: My main gripe about this game is it's notorious tendency to cause an open tray error on an XBOX 360. I had never heard of or run across this issue until I bought and returned several copies of this game thinking they were defective.
Summary: I didn't buy this game I just wanted to say this copy is not that rare, i have the same game and like 10 other of my friends also have the same one, the non platinum hits version. even for a "first day print" the price is not worth it.
Summary: I bought this exact Zune, the third in our family, almost exactly a year ago. Unfortunately, I got the dreaded Contact Support error 5 message (look it up, it's a doozie!), and the thing is toast.
Summary: I was a huge fan of the first gears of war, and while the campaign is more engaging it's much shorter and not very challenging at all. The MINOR gameplay enhancements are welcome, things like planting grenades as motion tripped mines is neat.
Summary: Just so you know, I have only played this on single player. I don't play online, and being a relatively new gamer my only experience with Gears 1 was playing through once with my son when he was visiting recently. That said... There are some things I love about this game.
Buyer Beware- extra content is given through DL code not disc

Summary: Microsoft has pulled a bait and switch or perhaps just really dirty advertising. Either way those of you expecting this to be the Gears 2 version of the 2 disc Gears of War 1 edition; watch out. The game is just a regular cd of Gears 2. All the extra content must be downloaded via live with a code.
Summary: The old adage comes to mind if it isnt broke do not fix it.Well instead of epic just fine tuning the multiplay from GOW1 they instead took the whole lobby system,shotgun system and play mechanics and trashed it.Also their are serious Lag issues here that in itself make the game a joke/unplayable...
