Very good and epic military video game.
5 February 2009 | by Aaron1375See all my reviews

Yes, this sequel to the 2006 game is explosive and very good, a bit better than the original game. The characters are back and just as wise cracking as ever and the story that unfolds is better than that of a lot of movies. The game play for the most part remains the same. You engage in a lot of fire fights where you duck and cover and shoot from the cover. A few differences in this one is that the chainsaw bayonet from the first game is used more here as I carved up a lot more enemies with it this time around. Another difference is the ability to use your downed enemies as shields. There are also more vehicles to use as you have your standard tank like vehicle and a couple of more unique ones. This game features a rather climatic ending too as well as a hint of a sequel in the future. The story has Marcus and Dom joined by some new characters and returning ones fighting the locust horde from beneath the earth once again. They have a plan to attack the locust and try to end the war with them once and for all. Along the way you have some humor as Carmine a new recruit to the Gears has some problems at first and one scene with the gang in the dark after a vehicle jump. At first I thought I did something wrong, but hearing them chat in the dark was rather funny. You also have a sad scene or two as well. So for one hell of an explosive game that is fun to play give Gears of War 2 a try. Though you really should play the first one so you know the whole story.
