6 November 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

2 years after the first installment, and Gears of War 2 is revved-up and ready to rock! Those of you familiar with the first title will feel immediately at home with the basic control set, and the welcome return of all the weapons from the original game (one or two with a few modifications). Whilst I obviously haven't completed the game yet (having owned it a mere 5 hours), I thought the spectacle of the mission's I HAVE played through warranted very high praise, and a brief review for those umming and ahhing about buying this title. The action and excitement has been notched up 10 fold, as the first few missions see you defending a Hospital full of wounded COG soldiers, venturing into pitch-black tunnels whilst 'Tickers' scurry at you out of the darkness, and defending a giant vehicle known as a Derrick from Brumak, Drone and all manner of other Locust attacks! If you have played the 1st, this is a no-brainer. However, if you haven't, GoW2 is the most complete action game that has yet been created. Top-notch voice acting, character driven emotional storytelling, and most of all, an epic sense of scale all serve to draw the gamer into the world of Sera and the COG's struggle to survive....Epic games have done it again, GoW2 is a watershed in action gaming.
