Gotta say, the campaign was incredible. I'm in the process of playing through it again on hardcore. Replay value is definitely there. I have no complaints otherwise, but there was a few things that I really thought Epic had massive success with in Gears 1 that they failed to replicate in this sequel.

One, being the lack of berserkers. After I finished the game, I couldn't believe that I had not even faced one berserker. They were my absolute favorite enemy in the first Gears. And with that being said, they sort of tie into my the others things I missed.

Another being not enough Hammer of Dawn action! This was key in defeating 2 out of 3 of the berserkers in Gears 1 and it was also a lot of fun to take out the seeders with it. Although, [SPOILER!] the final boss is defeated using it, it just wasn't quite the same somehow.

Third, and most important I feel, is the lack of terror! There were hardly any moments in Gears 2 where I was walking down a narrow hallway and half closing my eyes because I was afraid wretches were going to spring out of nowhere and scream bloody murder. I think there was honestly one moment in Gears 2 where that did happen. I believe it's in gathering storm, in one of the chapters where you are about to head back into double doors from a courtyard and it breaks open right before you reach it and out come the bastards. Other than that, all other wretch battles were not suspenseful. I could clearly see them coming from afar and there was no blood curdling screams.

This game was incredible. Definitely a 10 out of 10 in my book. Just wanted to point out a few things I was somewhat surprised by. Also, just seeing if anyone felt the same?

the berserker sections in the first one scared the sh*t out of me. and the part with the wretches, i was playing co-op with my buddy and, not thinking, i opened the door. thank epic for the scorcher.

every damn time i play it i get scared somehow. I can't hear so there's no sound to warn me. I'm walkin down the hall and turn around to see the enemy about to cut me to pork chops. Gets me everytime.

I agree the game is great. The views are insane too. My eyes were bloodshot from playing camp for hours.
