Gears of War 2.



It's no secret that I did not like the first Gears of War. I thought it was highly overrated.

So when GoW2 was announced, I figured it would be this over hyped piece of garbage. Well, not quite so.

As it turns out, I had the chance to play through the campaign coop with a friend, and I had a great time.

The graphics are better and more colorful than the GoW, there are some additions to the gameplay that work great, and you get a better sense of just how epic the war really is in this game. And I really like the changes to the multiplayer, no more rolling shotgun one hit kills anymore.

My only real complaint about the game is that the difficulty can border on the impossible at times. And I though that Epic tried too hard to give the game a story.

But I want everyone to know that I was wrong about GoW2, it's a great game and I would recommend it to everyone!

Been playing through GoW & I have been impressed so far by how the game handles, 2 is still in its wrapping...for now.

I didn't like Gears of War either. It felt drab and too puzzley.

*SPOILERS FOR DMOSBON*

Like that part where you had to run from light spot to light spot. And then the enemies that you had to trick into running into a door or something. Meh.

So now you have me a bit interested in Gears 2. But I still think Fallout 3 will be my next single game purchase.

@ dmosbon
I think you will be happy with Gears2 when you get to it!

@pete
I would choose Fallout 3 over Gears any day, I was juat lucky to have a friend who let me spend a large amount of time at their place to play!
