This game is a game that draws you in from the beginning. The gameplay is about 10 hours long and the ending resolves close to everything so that u aren't left with questions that NEED to be answer, but leaves enough for another game.
compared to the first:
better blood effects
the only way gears 1 is better is the fact that it was a new series
When i rate a game i ask myself the question, will people be talking about this game in a year? And people will DEFINITELY be talking about this in a year, because of two reasons:
Achievements that take A LONG time to get, like 'Party Like it's 1999' where you have to play 1999 rounds of multiplayer, and Seriously 2.0 where you have to get 100,000 kills
The best thing that was added to Gears of War 2 was Horde Mode, where you fight wave after wave of enemies, this not only takes a long time (which is another thing that makes you addicted) but is GREAT for when you have a friend over.
In conclusion, if you have a 360 you should DEFINITELY get this game. It's very much like it's predecessor, but how could you, and why would you, want to change a series so great to begin with? The story mode connects you to characters and to the gameplay itself. GET THIS GAME

The original Gears of War was one of the Xbox 360's first "must own" titles, but the good folks over at Epic Games weren't content to rest on their laurels. They set out to make a direct sequel that would best its predecessor- and in short, they succeeded. Gears of War 2 is bigger and better than ever before. It takes every piece one step further, and the result is a "larger than life" action game that's a blast from start to finish.The campaign in Gears of War 2 immediately gives off more of a ...
Gears of War 2 (Limited Collector's Edition)(Xbox 360) by dannyodwyer on November 23, 2008
Microsoft’s hype machine was set to eleven in November 2006 when the first iteration of the Gears of War series hit shelves worldwide. Epic rode the wave and created one of the best games of this generation while simultaneously knocking Halo off the Xbox Live most played list for the first time in two years. A sequel was inevitable, but with a twenty-four month turnover and the aforementioned hype machine running at a steady five or six, you’d be forgiven to think Epic were going to rest on thei...
