Beats The First by a Mile
9 July 2009 | by h-rabbitSee all my reviews

Gears of War 2 is a game that excels the first and continues the story of Delta Squad, a four-man team comprised of soldiers with their own pasts and specializations in combat. I'd say its pretty good and a well-made sequel to the first Gears of War.

Solo Campaign - This takes you to the story of Gears of War 2, which is quite good, but, as usual, short. The thing is, usually games go by level, going from level, to level, to level. Games like Fallout 3 or Fable II are RPGs, which mean their story can last forever as long as you like playing with your character and keep roaming, getting money and jobs or whatever. The story is progressive and quite complex, but with the same feeling and concept every single firefight; enemy appears, you take cover, kill them, move on. The story is nice and you get to receive new experiences, but just plainly the same again and again. 8/10.

Co-op Campaign - A nice feature, this is exactly the same as Solo Campaign except you can now play with a sentient player as a teammate instead of a computer. The co-op features limit to only two players, though, due to the amount of time its just two characters in the mission. 7/10.

Matchmaking - Could've been better, with few game modes and a third-person cover system which doesn't really fit in with player vs. player styled combat. There's not much to say except that Matchmaking is much better, but still quite amateur. 6/10.

Horde - Gears of War 2's Unique Feature is fun and exiting, with waves of enemies pressing in onto you team. This is a fun team-orientated feature which beats most with its adrenaline-filled moments. 10/10.

A game for tactical gamers who can deal with massive levels of blood and gore. But there is a filter for that sort of mature stuff.

Total Mark: 8/10
