Gears of War 2 GOTY edition £12.85 @ ShopTo [Xbox 360 games]

GOW2 lets you carve up the locust horde once more, as you step back into Marcus and Dom's shoes to fight for the survival of the human race.

If you dash to ShopTo you can grab the game of the year edition for £12.85, which'll save you just over £3 on the next best offer of £15.95 from DVD.co.uk.

In addition to the main game, the GOTY edition also provides you with; the new campaign chapter "Road to Ruin"; Flashback, Combustible, Snowblind, and Dark Corners map packs; and a fully kitted out multiplayer, including 19 bonus maps, every multiplayer mode and all the multiplayer achievements you could ask for.

Whilst I wasn't really a fan of the original, due to what in my opinion was incredibly limited gameplay which relied too heavily on the duck and cover system, the improvements that have been made to the sequel have renewed my interest in the series.

The addition of several types of movable cover, helps you to move around the battlefield without feeling as exposed as you were in the original, and if you find yourself in a tight spot you can even pick up your enemies' corpses to shield yourself! Extra cut scenes and a whole load of new characters, really gives the game a cinematic feel during the down time between bouts of action. Finally, the inclusion of melee duals means the task of hacking your opponents to pieces has become a bit more challenging than a single frantic button push.

Whilst the single player is tremendously good fun, as with the original, you'll get far more out of the experience by signing into co-op with a friend and charging into the fray side by side.

GOW2 is a great game that'll more than likely make you route around for the original on completion, so you can play through an epic GOW marathon. Also, if you can't wait to find out what happens at the end, or maybe you've finished the game and want to voice your opinion on it, then why not check out Felix's The Best (and Worst) Videogame Endings, Volume 2 here.
