Finally won Gears of War 2!!!

Well, I got this game for Christmas and finally got though the game on regular difficulty, single player.  While I can see how the game had improved from Gears 1, about half-way through the game, I just didn't feel like playing it any longer.  And I was getting really tired of the entire "DELTA, get ALPHA to BETA" talk that was all throughout the game.  I suppose I'm just tired of the entire military macho crap--the vids of Killzone 2 turned me off in the same way and I haven't played beyond that demo...


For some reason, I don't think I'll get Gears 3.   While I did think the game was fun, it was a chore to get through, and the story was all over the place.  I also wasn't that impressed with the graphics.  While the first gears looked beyond anything the 360 had before it, this game looks more of the same.  I think it's more of the art style that any technical thing going on.  I think that Killzone 2 and MGS4 had a better look, but that just me.

Well, while fun, the game ran out of gas half way through for me.  I might be done with shooters for a bit (at least until Half life 2:  Episode 3), of course Infamous is looking pretty good and by all accounts is a 3rd person shooter with some platforming...we'll see.

Well both times I beat the campaign, I beat it with a friend over Xbox Live and I had a blast with it. I suggest you find someone you get a long with well to play the Gears campaign with. That applies to all games as well. Any game that has co-op, Just find someone to play through it with you, It's just that much more fun!

Really? I had a blast with Gears 2 from start to finish. I definitely can't say the same about the original Gears. In fact, if I wouldn't have had such a great time with Gears 2, I probably never would have even went back and finished the original. Though, I have found that the original is significantly better if you're playing with a friend. In the sequel, I think it's awesome either way.

Wow, I couldn't have had more of an opposite reaction than you.  I loved the game from start to finish and graphically, I thought it was beautiful and much more impressive than the first.

I have similar feel towards Gears of War 2 now also. But, I'm just bored of the game in general... doubt I'll trade it in, though. Wouldn't want to trade it a L.C.E.
