Gears of War 2 for XBOX 360
October 3rd, 2009
Gears of War 2 for XBOX 360

The Locust Horde are back, destroying entire cities. This time, Delta Squad are taking the fight to the enemy... Gears of War 2 takes the award-winning gameplay of the original, bestselling tactical third-person shooter Gears of War and improves upon it with many major enhancements. The revolutionary cover system has been further refined, making it more intuitive, and even the bodies of fallen enemies can now be picked up and used as “meat shields”. In Gears of War 2, environments are destructible and combat is even more intense with the inclusion of brutal chainsaw duels. Advances in Epic's Unreal Engine 3 can clearly be seen on the screen, adding a heightened realism to the “destroyed beauty” of the planet Sera: with dynamic shadows, improved character lighting, new weather effects, advanced fluid physics, and the ability to render hundreds of on-screen characters simultaneously...

In addition to the single player campaign mode, there's an expanded co-operative mode: allowing you to play through the entire story with a friend. The much talked-about new game mode Horde has you and four other players fighting together to fend off a seemingly endless onslaught of Locust forces. And, there are other new multiplayer modes where up to 10 players can take part in online battles. This sequel also has brains as well as brawn, with the main campaign featuring character development and multiple story arcs based on your actions...

Epic Games' Gears of War 2 is released today, exclusive to the Microsoft XBOX 360 Console
