Gears of War 2 balances a more highly developed storyline than its predecessor with more of the highly successful run and gun gameplay and excellent graphics that made the original so famous and popular. It is currently available for just £14.73 from The Hut, over £3 less than the next best price.
Marcus has now become Sergeant Fenix and Gears 2 follows him down the rabbit Locust hole into The Hollow. Dominic Santiago returns as do Tai Kaliso and (unfortunately) Damon Baird - man I hate that guy!
You will have great fun blasting your way through the jaw-dropping environments of the extremely entertaining main campaign, whether taken on solo or with a co-pilot in co-op mode. You might have an even better time with the four new competitive multiplayer modes which allow up to ten players at any time. This side of the game has been well improved with plenty of new weaponry and maps. As well as the new options you can still play the Warzone, Execution, Assassination, and Annex modes as well as King of the Hill from the PC version of Gears of War.
Gears of War 2 was extremely well received and it's not hard to see why - everything in this well made series so far oozes quality and style. It's a gritty and intense experience that is not for the faint hearted. There are epic battles a-plenty and once again you get to smoosh up enemies with a chainsaw-gun which, frankly, alone is reason enough to have this title on your shelf.
