5.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST GAME THE 360 HAS TO OFFER, December 5, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Gears of War 2: Game of the Year Edition (Video Game)
The original Gears of War wasn't the all mighty game that a lot of people claimed it to be, it had dozens glitches and was a short game that didn't offer much replay value.
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.
