Gears of War- A Franchise You Must Try!

Gears of War 2 - Game of the Year Edition

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. So all that was required with the sequel was to refine the first, and make it more refined. In this, the game succeeds. The levels have improved the "get stuck in one area and bombarded by bad guys" issues that were so constant throughout the first game. Not only is there a longer and more interesting campaign, there's more to do, and a new variety of actions. The graphics have been updated, and I must say, this game is far more fun with a friend through the campaign than on its own, though that is pretty fun as well. An A-List title that is great fun.

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!

  1. Not a fan of games... I jst develop them!

  2. GOW has it's plot holes here and there. But Overall they are damn fine games. Some of the best to come about in years and I like how they actually gave it a proper ending, not trying to drag it out. Which I'm sure they will anyway.

  3. I love all the Gears of war games. When I'm not blogging or brewing beer, I'm playing video games!
