OK here is what I think of Gears of War 2.

Campaign
The story is an absolute masterpiece and miles better than the Gears 1 campaign. I was expecting a shorter campaign as that was my feeling from the reviews and I was surprised at the length of the campaign. I also though it would have been better if there was more missions that weren't underground because I love mission that are on the surface. The addition of riding the Brumak and Reaver are great and also a brilliant way to get some more kills. Overall I was very happy with the Gears 2 campaign and I didn’t find a bit of it dull or boring and was on the edge of my seat with all the battles, the numbers of Locust compared to Gears 1 is massive. Out of the 5 I would give the campaign 4.5/5. Nothing is perfect but this is very close to it.

Multiplayer
Honestly I am not a big fan of the multiplayer. I hate the new lobby system and preferred the Gears 1 multiplayer. I do like the new multiplayer game types like Wingman. I am not that big a fan of King of the Hill because you have to stay in the ring to gain points and in a match the other day I was in the circle several times and some newbie runs in throws a smoke grenade, knocks you down and then chainsaws you when you get up. I found the multiplayer confusing at first with the new layout but you do get used to it. I would give the multiplayer 3/5 but once you get used to the new lobby system it deserves a 4/5.

Weapons
I love the new weapons, who wouldn't love extra weapons? The mortar is great for taking out bigger enemies such as the Brumaks on Act 5. The mulcher is also brilliant and be a huge help in Horde mode. On a downside however I do like the new Sniper and Shotgun, the new Shotgun is too weak. I know Cliffy B wanted to eliminate the run and gun element that was in Gears 1 but the shotgun is useless. The Sniper is also not as good and feels more stiff and awkward, much like the shotgun.

Overall Gears 2 gets an 8.5/10 from me. I found this game better than Gears 1 Campaign wise but did prefer the multiplayer in Gears 1. Although the new game types in multiplayer make up for the lobby system.

We agree on just about everything. But I'd still give it a 9.25

I agree with most everything except i am on the opposite side when it comes to the shotgun and sniper. I find that it just takes some getting used to with the shotgun in order to be effective. I'm not sure if this is true but it seems like if you aim and shoot no matter how close you are the dmg is not nearly as great as if you shoot from the hip which is what takes getting used to. Sniper tho i find much easier to use. I always had problems with Gears 1 sniper but now i feel confident in a headshot when i fire. Also i like the new color scheme down scope. I think that Gears 2 will deserve a 10 if they fix the matchmaking system and the chainsaw buggs. For now i'll give it a 9.5.

Well I guess everyones different, some like Gears 1 sniper some prefer the Gears 2 sniper. It is just that I always used the Gears 1 sniper so was very used to it and maybe thats why I don't like the Gears 2 sniper as much.

My sarcasm. If I put 9.5, somebody might call me a Noob fanboy of some other nonsense I would have to ignore them for
