Gears of War 2 Modded Controllers for Xbox 360 & Sony PS3
Gears of War 2 is a third-person shooter video game developed by Epic Games with lead design by Cliff Bleszinski, and published by Microsoft Game Studios for the Xbox 360. It is the second installment of the Gears of War series. The game was officially released in North America, Europe and Australia on November 7, 2008 and was released in Japan on July 30, 2009.
The storyline in Gears of War 3 is much deeper and involved than the first one. Characters are more emotional, more is revealed about the Locust and where they come from, and there are also plenty of new story threads that are opened up. Players are fighting in a massive planet-wide war and in Gears of War 2 you feel the importance of your actions in a big way. The battles are massive and enemies that only made brief appearances prior are now being thrown at the player in droves.
The campaign mode is fantastic, although the structure feels off though. The first four acts are wonderful and exciting but the fifth act gets in the last few chapters. The last boss is a complete joke and the ending feels just a tad too abrupt.
The co-op campaign is very similar to the campaign, but player gets the added human component for strategy purposes and can set their own difficulty level.
The multiplayer offers fifteen maps; five of which are downloadable remakes from Gears 1. The recreations are familiar territory but feature some nicer lighting and an overall smoother look than the original articles. The other ten newly created works range from the awesome Avalanche and Hail to the more traditional Jacinto and Pavillion maps.
For as good as the whole competitive multiplayer portion of Gears 2 is, it's slightly overshadowed by the new cooperative Horde mode. Horde is a non-stop adrenaline rush that throws upwards of thirty enemies at you, the exact number of which is dependent of how many of the five possible player slots you fill. There are 50 waves to storm through and the enemies level up damage, health and accuracy every ten waves. Horde mode is an unbelievably simple and addictive
Gears of War 2 received wide critical acclaim. It has been praised for a deeper plot than Gears of War and cooperative campaign mode. Critics have found more flaws in the game this time around: the multiplayer experience was called unsatisfying overall; the last campaign and the voice acting were mentioned as disappointing as well.
Gears of War 2 has achieved significant success after its release. In its opening weekend, the game sold over two million units, and set a new record for the number of simultaneous players on Xbox Live, with over 1 million people logging on to play the game. The game went on to sell over three million copies worldwide within the first month of its release, and as of May 2009, Gears of War 2 had sold over 5 million units worldwide.
In conclusion, Gears of War 2 has non-stop action, fresh gameplay, varied environments, an engrossing storyline, and nice multiplayer. It has its flaws, but still is considered one of the best Xbox 360 games.
The game is rated M for Mature: Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, Strong Language.
