Product Details:

Gears of War 2 is the highly anticipated sequel to the 5 million-selling blockbuster action game and one of the most popular Xbox games in history. 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.
  • 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 video games 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,2 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.
  • Party system and skill-based online matchmaking: New to Gears of War 2 is a party system that allows players to form a full or partial team with friends and continue together from match to match without the need to reform after each game. Gears of War 2 also supports a skill-based online matchmaking system, powered by TrueSkill, which groups players of similar skill level together in competitive multiplayer matches.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Delightful Experience This game is better then the first game by far and it's a great step up from the first game and what a way to continue the story from the first Gears of War game. After beating the first game, I wanted to continue the story and once I've got a copy it........the result was MIND-BLOWING on many levels. IGN called it when they said 'you're going to be blown away' and they were right. However, this game does contain a certain moment later in the game where you'll feel shocked and haunted and it doesn't matter how times you see it, it will get to you. I'm not going to spoil it for those who hadn't played it but if you want a ride of your life, Gears of War 2 will do it and be prepared to go on an unforgettable ride that will hold you onto the end. Once it has a hold on you, it does not let go. I've been playing this since February of 2011 and I'm still going. Like Gears of War 1 & 3, the re-playability of this game is high and I would HIGHLY recommend replaying this game after beating it the first time around. The Horde does prove to be challenging but when you get past a wave, it's very rewarding and fun.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Played This One First Gears of War 2 has some gruesome combat complete with finishers for really doing the job. Though the combat is great and the graphics are smooth the thing that really sells the game for me is the voice acting. The characters are really brought to life with the amount of personality in the acting, which makes the story mode pretty great for a shooter. I highly recommend Gears 2, even as a player that didn't play the original first.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's Worth It Wow...let's begin with the gameplay. It is definitely a great experience, although the controls could be a little smoother. The campaign is pretty good, my only issues being far too many cutscenes, and the co-op gameplay can get a bit cramped. Lets move to graphics. They are average-good, nothing notable, but still pretty nice. One great move I thought Epic made when creating the game was expanding the game to younger gamers by giving the option to toggle gore and strong language. Next, Sound. The sound quality is ok, but the AI and character sounds or chatter can get quite annoying, expecially when you are trying to fight a monster with a minigun who keeps saying "Grinder" every two seconds. Lets move to re-playability. Great game to play every once in a while with a buddy, expecially on modes like horde or warzone. Great Job Epic! It should be a definite buy, expecially with gamestop dropping the price to 99 cents. Trust me, It's Worth It.- NuthinButGaming

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hate Gears so much I bought this years ago when it came out because all my friends told me to get it. yeah it's violent but to the point that it's overkill and just gets annoying after a bit. I can't stand the gameplay and have never enjoyed gears of war. i only got it because of the vast multiplayer improvements that my friends claimed existed. Nope. This just isn't the game for me. Maybe for you, but I'll pass.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best shooters ever made! This game has brought me countless hours of addictive wall bouncing and shotty battling. I love this game. The Story is good and horde was a good addition but this game really shines when it comes to multiplayer. It's my favorite out of the first 3. (I haven't tried judgement bc of the bad reviews) This game is like 6 years old now and yes it has its problems but the multiplayer is so addictive! I would recommend this game to anyone who likes 3rd person shooters.
