Edition: Game of the Year
Top Customer Reviews
Seriously, the game is better than the first one and the free maps put the icing on the cake.
The maps are not on the disk (you get a code to download the maps) but this is not a problem for me.
As to the game of the year edition, there's no reason to get it if you own the game already, as all you get are some codes to download the extra content. However, if you don't have it, then this is the edition to get, as the down-loadable content is almost as much as this full game. Overall its one of the best games you can get for the xbox 360, and a worthy edition to your collection. Highly recomended!
However, with the sequel, these problems are unseen. The game is three times longer than it's predecessor, has a steady frame-rate, even better online multiplayer (but still has lag problems, unfortunately), and to top it off, truely amazing graphics.
STORY: The sequel picks up a couple of months after the original, the locust have returned with a force even more agressive than before and have begun to sink entire cities.
On a side note, the game contains a very intresting sub-plot, Dom (Marcus' best friend and brother in arms) is searching for his wife Maria throughout the game. This was a great decision on EPIC's part to include this in the game because it gives you a reason to like the main characters even more and also gives you an even better reason to hate the locust.
GAME-PLAY: While still heavy and sometimes clunky, it is even more violent and in your face then any game out there. It plays nothing like the original, in my opinion anyway. This game has set the bar for third person shooters in almost every way possible
GRAPHICS: Polished to near perfection, with minor pop-in and frame-rate issues, this is the best looking game on the xbox 360. (At least for the time being)
GAME OF THE YEAR EDITION: This edition of the game includes all the downloadable maps. These maps are the selling point of this edition (but you must have xbox live to download them), plus "The Road to Ruin" deleted scene is a lot better than parts of the regular game.
THE VERDICT: If don't already own this game, then this is the perfect package.
So you could buy this for the extra maps and mission alone, and resell (or even return) the game CD itself, as the standard GOW 2 product.
Oh, yeah, great game.
The maps are provided via DLC, so you won't be able to "pass" the maps to your friend to borrow. Your friends will also have to have the extra maps in order to play together, which is a common sense.
I love the running and shooting part of the game, but the flying and driving part of the game was very frustrating and annoying. Me and a friend finished the whole campaign together the hardest difficulty, and we got stuck on a few parts of the game for hours.
I recommend playing the game on normal or easy if you just want to enjoy the storyline.
The graphic is very good. If you played the first Gears, you need to play this one.
Since I decided to skip the regular version, I bought the "Game of the Year" edition instead and let me tell you it's more than the original. You get not only new maps for multiplayer, but also a hidden chapter that was cut from the original release( for reasons unknown) as well as a free Gold membership. That and the Horde mode is a blast. I played with it a few times and it's addictive as hell and you can play it online too; another added bonus to an already stellar package. If you liked the first game than you'll LOVE GoW2. One of the best action games on the Xbox 360.

Gears of War was a breath of fresh air when it came out. It had amazing graphics, unique and perfectly refined combat, and an online combat that is hard to beat. Read morePublished 9 months ago by brendin
