"Epic Cracks Down"

Gamers have acquired the game early somehow or another, and Epic has decided to make sure that they don’t get a head start afterall. While a lot of gamers who possess the game early may have already unlocked a ton of achievements, their position on the leaderboards will be whiped clean for the start of the game.

Joe Graf has stated that, "They will be reset multiple times between now and launch." It’s nice to know that Epic has finally given word out that the gamers will be given a fair shot at their place high up on the leaderboards.

IGN Review - 9.5

Closing Comments
If you haven’t figured it out by now, Gears of War 2 is what’s going to sell Xbox 360s this holiday season. It has non-stop action, fresh gameplay, varied environments, an engrossing storyline, multiplayer that will have people busy for years to come, and some of the nastiest and coolest k!lls I’ve seen in a videogame. It has its flaws when it comes to the technical side of multiplayer and the last act of the campaign and the voice acting might turn some off. Still, none of that comes close to holding back Gears of War 2 from its destiny: being one of the best games available on the Xbox 360.

Eurogamer: Gears of War 2 Review - 9/10

Like the original, on one level, Gears 2 is a brilliant advertisement for Unreal Engine 3, glorying in soft-body physics, glinting textures, and massive explosions. Even after a year of non-stop eye candy, Epic's series provides some of the most fiercely pretty visuals you'll get the chance to look at, even if its world is so charmingly ugly. Yet on another level, the game's a calling card from a developer that continues to mature in design as well as technology. The first game slowed down the crazy pace of Unreal Tournament - forcing you into using the environment every bit as much as the weapon-set - and the sequel continues to build on that with ease, but alongside the bare mechanics, Gears of War 2 shows a new interest in stories and varying the action. Best of all, it has the native intelligence to bring both aspects together.

Gameplayer - 9.5

It isn’t a perfect ride, of course, sometimes the AI can stand a foot away and ignore you when you’ve been downed and you’re groveling for their help, and while the game doesn’t end before it begins like the previous outing, we still found ourselves wanting more – but some may view that as a positive point rather than a negative though. Those minor annoyances aside, Gears of War 2 is a blockbuster title in every sense of the word and it is a must-buy for all 360 action fans.

TeamXBOX - 9.8

All of the multiplayer, both co-op and competitive, completely makes up for any that was lacking in the first game. For those that thought that Gears just wasn’t suited to multiplayer gameplay, that it was too tactical and slow and was better suited to a single player experience, prepare to eat your words. It’s fantastic, and rounds out the complete package that is Gears of War 2.

I could go on about other little details of the game that are very pleasing – the war journal that tracks achievements and collectibles, the achievements themselves, the Flashback Map Pack – but you should really go explore those on your own. Gears of War 2 is a must own for every Xbox 360 owner. Despite a few minor missteps in the way the story and action play out, and a few forgivable technical blemishes, Gears of War 2 is about as close as you can get to the perfect gaming package. Now the waiting begins for 3.
