As usual I will give you the good and the bad of this game. and as always a final thought.
========== The Good ==========
Much bigger and better story line than gears 1.
The graphics are simply amazing, one of the most intense graphic games out right now, run this game in 1080p on a big lcd and be amazed!
single player is simply amazing, but multiplayer is even better, get ready to be a slave to this game fir a very very long time!!
Weapons are awesome, good new additions to them as well as cover mechanics
hoarde mode is simply sweet, prob my fav thing so far!
======== The Bad ========
Prob the loudest complaint by everyone so far is that shotgun damage seems limited now, but while many see this as a flaw it is infact the way it should be. Its only going under bad because so many people complain about it
Achievments are much more easy in this gears than the first. This could be good or bad depending on you. However I like a challenge so I see it as bad.
Finding a lot to say bad about this game is simply hard so thats it.
============== Final thought ==============
Its an amazing game that is a MUST rent, but If you dont have it shipped to you already be prepared to wait a LONG LONG TIME. I see this game being kept by many people for at least 2 months. GET IT! and GET IT NOW!

Gears of War 2 is way better then the first in many ways.The first reason is the storyline,it's longer more action packed and there was more dialog for cole train.The second reason is the weapons.The classic lancer,the boomshield,the Scorcher,the Mortar,and my fav. the Gorgon SMG.The last reason is very simple: the on-line multyplayer.More maps to play on,more enemies to kill and of course the first apperence of horde mode.Gears 2 is definetly all around better then 1 and I strongly recommend to play it.

I just got done with this game last night and I couldn't have asked for more. One of the best looking games have ever seen. Great story. For all the action that was going on on screen only once did I notice any slowdown. Games like this will keep the 360 at the top of my systems. I have not 1 single complant about this game. Can't wait for the Gears 3. Also the new weapons were fantastic. You must play!!!
