Ah, this one is my favorite one in the entire series. It is time to review Gears of War 2! If you want to check out my review on Gears of War, here is the link. //www.vizzed.com/boards/thread.php?id=86693&ref=532454. Now, without further a do, I give to you my review on Gears of War 2. 


Im going to start with the gameplay. I absolutely love Gears of War 2. It is my favorite game in the series as said up top. It is very emotianal and made me cry multiple times. Gears of War 2 is a third person shooter just like Gears of War. Most of the things in Gears of War are in Gears of War 2. Chainsaw duels are back, collectables are back and this time has much more to collect, and all your favorite weapons are back, including the amazing Lancer.


The graphics in this game are the best in the whole series. Still made with Unreal Engine 3, but this time with even better graphics. Cinematics and Cutscenes are amazing and look just as great as the gameplay. The character models are rendered even better in Gears of War 2 as well. And there is a new game mode called Horde Mode. You pretty much fight off 50 waves of locusts and try to see how far you can go. Beat wave 50 and you win.


The sound and music in Gears of War 2 is beautiful. I could not imagine better music for this game. The lancer has a cool chainsaw sound that is very realistic. When enemies explode, you can actually hear the body parts turning to mush. Yes I know that is nasty, but the realism in Gears of War 2 is amazing.


Gears of War 2 is pretty addicting. There are four difficulties and tons of achievements for you to unlock. Beating the game on all four difficulties are four of the achievements. There is a multiplayer that to this day has quite a bit of players still, so you can still play that. Then there is the leveling system. Once you reach the max level, you can chose to re tour and go back to level 1. But everything you earned is there and you now have a status change next to your name.


The story in Gears of War 2 is phenominal. It is a major step up from the first Gears of War. The cutscenes are just as good as the story, and you keep learning more and more new things as you play through the campaign. However, this game is not for the faint of hear, as it is very emotinal and very screwed up things happen in the story.


There is just so much to do in Gears of War 2! You have all the achievements to unlock, get all the collectables, play the multiplayer and get to the max level over and over, and the almight and awesome but time consuming, Horde Mode. 


 This game is no where near as difficult as Gears of War because there are many more checkpoints. But with there now being 4 dfficulties, it gets really hard. You have Casual, which should be your first if you are new to Gears of War 2, normal which is quite challenging, but not hard at all, hardcore which is very difficult and very challenging, and the even more impossible, insane difficulty which is extremely difficult and extremely challenging. If you suck at head shots, I recommend perfecting it before you try it.


So there you go. Now for my final verdict on the game. I gave this game a 10 out of 10 because it is a very good game, has amazing graphics and sound, it is very addicting, and has lots of replay value. It also gives me a challenge by playing horde mode or insane on campaign.

Your reviews are improving each time you make them. The structure gets better, you add more details and you make more comparisons. I guess this latter point came in easier since GOW 2 was a game in a series of many. By adding just a few more details - what IS the story holding the game together? - you will become an excellent reviewer!
