Gears of War 2

Gears of War 2 is a third-person shooter video game. In Gears of War 2, the COG continues its fight against the Locust horde, who are attempting to sink all of the cities on the planet Sera. Sergeant Marcus Fenix leads Delta Squad into the depths of the planet to try to stop the Locust during the assault upon Locust territory. The player controls Fenix in the main mission campaign, with the ability to play cooperatively with a second player controlling Fenix's best friend and fellow Squad member Dominic "Dom" Santiago. The game includes several existing and new multiplayer modes including five-on-five battles between human and Locust forces, and a "Horde" mode that challenges up to five players against waves of Locust forces with ever-increasing strength. New weapons and gameplay mechanics such as "chainsaw duels" and the ability to use downed foes as "meatshields" were added to the game.

Players continue as Marcus Fenix, a reluctant war hero and leader of Delta Squad, six months after the events of "Gears of War." The last cities on Sera are sinking, swallowed by a new Locust threat from below. A massive counterattack is humanity's last hope for survival. Gears of War 2 blends a best-in-class third-person shooter with unsurpassed high-definition visuals, all layered on top of an engaging story of survival, loss and retribution. Gears of War 2 is developed by Epic Games exclusively for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system."

Features:
  • "Unparalleled gameplay. Gears of War 2 takes the award-winning gameplay of the original and improves upon it in every way. The genre-defining cover system is further refined, making the "stop and pop" gameplay more intuitive. Dynamic cover is given new meaning as downed opponents can be picked up and used as shields. The intimate violence of the battlefield is heightened when combatants engage in chainsaw duels. Destructible environments and vicious new finishing moves add to the over-the-top experience."
  • "Jaw-dropping visuals. Gears of War 2 continues to raise the graphics bar through its breathtaking visual effects, made possible through advances in Unreal Engine 3."
  • Engaging experience that pulls you in and won't let go. Gears of War 2 takes deep and immersive storytelling in videogames to greater heights. Players connect with humanity's battle for survival on a personal level as they move through a story that introduces new characters and sheds light on the histories of familiar ones.
  • "Expanded cooperative play. Team up with a friend to fight through the harrowing story of Delta Squad in the enhanced campaign mode, now featuring drop-in/drop-out gameplay, as well as individual player difficulty options. Or recruit four friends to battle in the new game mode "Horde," where you'll fight together to fend off a seemingly endless onslaught of Locust forces to attain the highest score."
  • "Fierce and varied competitive multiplayer action. Gears of War 2 features eight distinct multiplayer modes, including the new Wingman, Guardian and Submission modes, where up to 10 players choose a side and pit their courage and battlefield mettle directly against others. In addition, multiplayer bots are available to sharpen your skills offline or to fill out your online private matches on Xbox LIVE."

Gears of War2

My hubby LOVES this game! I bought him Gears of War 3 when he first got his XBox. I was going to buy Gears of War 4 - but it's a bit rich at the moment so I'll wait a bit (or at least until he's finished this game).

Gears of War 2

Its awesome the graphics and everything is just amazing

Bigger, better and definitely more badass!

This was the words of Cliff Blezenski, lead designer and creator of GOW 2. And that was so true. The way the graphics, the dialogue, the guns, the enemies, the storyline and the gameplay was incorporated was truly the recipe for one of the most hotly anticipated title of 2008. And boy, did it deliver. The storylin's a bit short 'cause Epic(company creator of the GOW franchise) wanted it to be good quality instead of quantity. If yo've complted the storyline there's online waitng for you or a new mode that can be played offline as well as online, named Horde. This is one of the best and favourite modes in GOW2 amongst gamers. Here you must fight wave after wave of enemies and with each number the total and difficulty of them increased. It goes up to wave 50. There is still a few time in he game that they uses God's name in vain.For me a good setting in the game is that you can put up a filter to decrease the gore and strong language. That impressed me. Everybody's favourite chainsaw wielder, Marcus Fenix, is back and together with Delta Squad and his best friend Dom, the want to destroy all the Locusts that wants to destroy the last standing city on earth, Jacinto. On they way to do it, Marcus and Dom is searching for Dom's wife Maria that was taken hostage on Emergence day(from the first Gears). On this fatefull day all hell broke loose when a sudden attack from the Locusts came and try to take over the world and destroy and then you detonated the Lightmass bomb(GOW1). It not only failed to kill all the Locust Hordes but releade a gas that makes the stronger! So will you and Delta Squad in GOW2 save Jacinto. All relies on your shoulders. GOW2's ending is a little blunt, but that make's room for the prequal, Gears of War 3(GOW3). GOW2 uses the same Unreal Engine as GOW1 but Epic has put lighting effects like Hollywood in that makes this a very dramatic game. Truly, this is pushing the boundaries of what next generation games can achieve!

the best 3rd person shooter ever

this is the sequel to the award winning gears of war.this game is awesome and about war (obiously), brilliant graphics and the best cover system ever if your a fan of shooters then play this and cry a tear of joy for the monumentous game gears of war 2
