Personally I think this game looks absolutely amazing. I loved the first one and the trailer for Gears of War 2 was definately what I wanted to see from Epic at E3. I can not wait to ride a Brumack. That's just epic right there. But seriously, what are your thoughts?

Im beyond excited for this game. I agree riding a Brumack Will indeed be epic. Im also excited about the whole flame thrower, and pick up a downed locust and using him as cover thing

It certainly looked a lot like Gears of War... and that's a damn good thing too; can't wait to get my grubby hands on it... then chainsaw right through.

Looks awesome for sure, loved GOW, heard that they are altering a few things with the online networking to, was a big problem with the original, would be great to see it fixed.

I totally agree, this game looks ridiculously sick.  I personally am pumped for bots b/c one of my biggest problems in Gears 1 was finding a solid multiplayer game with people at my level.  Here's to hoping the bots are scalable.

I'm very much looking forward to this game, like many of you I enjoyed the first greatly. While I enjoy GOW a lot I felt it was lacking larger boss battles (sure there were a few), GOW2 overall should fill this void with larger enemies and battlefields.

To be honest I was really excited about gears 2 until they showed the demo at the Microsoft Keynote. The game looks better compared to the original game, I can't wait to ride the brumak.

I am really looking forward to it, the first one was great and as long as they dont change the game too much so will this. Though tbh I am not too bothered about riding the brumack :P

It looks great but at the end of the day its a slightly more polished Gears of War I don't think its going to rock everyones world like the first.

I think that game demoed better than any other game at E3, frame rate looked smooth and Epic chose a great level to show off.

At first I was kinda looking forward to the game but only really saw it as a sequel. Then something (I still have no idea what) at the Microsoft Press Conference made me really excited about the game.

Definitely looks great.  I can't wait to play it co-op, which is how I played the original.

Before E3 and After E3 Gears 2 was and is my most anticipated game.  It looks amazing and I can't wait to get back into Gears but I was a little disappointed that 4 player campaign coop was not confirmed at the show.

Dude, ever heard of game called Grand Theft Auto IV ?


Anyways! They do a great job running that PR machine over at Microsoft. How can you say no to all those exciting trailers they make. I think this game will be awesome.

Gears 2 looks awesome. It might just push me to buy a 360 along with Fable 2.

I'm really excited for this game. My friend and I played the game in co-op 3x. We know NOW the achievements stack. But we played on Casual, Hardcore, and Insane all in one weekend! Not a very long game mind, especially in co-op. But it was fun everytime. I can play that game all the time. I'm sure this game will be the same.

The gameplay shown at E3 was pretty good and the announcement of the Horde mode was just icing on the cake.

Yea its look awesome, but still kinda looks like gears 1.5, but maybe if they flesh out the story ALOT more then im would be quite happy because they have an awesome universe which they aint really took advantage of with allowing you to get close to the characters, the bosses etc then i think the game will really be even better than gears 1 !

Before E3 i thought the game looked way to similar to the original, and it put me off a little... But seeing the E3 gameplay changed my mind completely.

I am way excited for this game.

The game looks amazing. The online party system is going to be awesome.  Riding the brumak sounds really fun. Maybe there will be a Brumak vs. (can't remember name the spider locust) The entire game looks great, can't wait for November 7
