    Undecided, I don't really care for the story all that much so maybe multiplayer first. Also would like to enjoy the time without 10 year olds for as long as I can.

    I'll play the campaign co-op online with a friend. I played Gears 1 first on co-op with a friend and damn that was awesome!

    I always play through the campaign in a game first it's a good warm up for the multiplayer so you don't look like such a noob.

    Start with co-op campaign, finish it on hardcore, then insane, then start online. (not all in one day mind you.)

    It depends on whether I have some friends to run through the campaign with that night. If not, I will jump right into some multiplayer goodness.

    I'll probably play through the campaign first.  3 of my roommates have 360's as well so we'll probably all co-op it first.  Then, of course, it's right to online.  The game is probably going to be fairly short, longer than Gears 1 but still short, it shouldn't take long to beat it so I won't be to far behind on the learning curve for online.

    Single player only for me. I already had enough with the online of the first game, this one looks too much of the same. I'm not paying for XBLG just to play this online cuz i hardly play my 360. I mostly play on my PS3.

    I'll complete the campaign twice first with two different people, and with at least one of the play throughs on the hardest difficulty, whether it's 'Insane' or not

    Man, Horde mode sounds awesome. With the addition of that and the tweaks made to the multiplayer, I think I'll be spending a lot more time on Gears 2 than the original.(if that's even possible. =p)

    That's essentially what I do. On the second play through it'll likely be on the hardest difficulty and with a friend.

    Campaign first. Want to get a grasp on the new mechanics before I jump online. I was also left so unsatisfied with the original gears ending that I want to get some bit of a damn story line.

    Campaign by myself, Campaign with my friend afterwards on harder difficulty. Horde 5 player Co op mode. After I am done all that, then I will go online to get my ass kicked.
