  • Unparalleled gameplay. "Gears of War 2" takes the award-winning gameplay of the original and improves upon it in every way. The genre-defining cover system is further refined, making the "stop and pop" gameplay more intuitive. Dynamic cover is given new meaning as downed opponents can be picked up and used as shields. The intimate violence of the battlefield is heightened when combatants engage in chainsaw duels. Destructible environments and vicious new finishing moves add to the over-the-top experience
  • Jaw-dropping visuals. "Gears of War 2" continues to raise the graphics bar through its breathtaking visual effects, made possible through advances in Unreal Engine 3
  • Engaging experience that pulls you in and won't let go. "Gears of War 2" takes deep and immersive storytelling in video games to greater heights. Players connect with humanity's battle for survival on a personal level as they move through a story that introduces new characters and sheds light on the histories of familiar ones
  • Expanded cooperative play. Team up with a friend to fight through the harrowing story of Delta Squad in the enhanced campaign mode, now featuring drop-in/drop-out gameplay, as well as individual player difficulty options. Or recruit four friends to battle in the new game mode "Horde," where you'll fight together to fend off a seemingly endless onslaught of Locust forces to attain the highest score
  • Fierce and varied competitive multiplayer action. "Gears of War 2" features eight distinct multiplayer modes,2 including the new Wingman, Guardian and Submission modes, where up to 10 players choose a side and pit their courage and battlefield mettle directly against others. In addition, multiplayer bots are available to sharpen your skills offline or to fill out your online private matches on Xbox LIVE
  • Party system and skill-based online matchmaking. New to "Gears of War 2" is a party system that allows players to form a full or partial team with friends and continue together from match to match without the need to reform after each game.

Product Description

Manufacturer's Description


For players who have yet to experience the blockbuster action of Gears of War 2 Microsoft Game Studios is making it easy to jump into all the excitement of the critically acclaimed title  with the launch of Gears of War 2: Game of the Year Edition.

Gears of War 2: Game of the Year Edition comes complete with the Gears of War 2: All Fronts Collection Game Add-on, which includes all 19 extra multiplayer maps, the Road to Ruin campaign chapter and the chance to unlock every Achievement to-date worth a total of 1750 Gamerscore and is available exclusively on Xbox 360 and in Xbox LIVE regions only with a rating of PEGI 18+

The Locust Horde is back and only you and your squad of elite soldiers stand between them and the death of every human being on the planet Sera. In Gears of War 2, entire cities are being destroyed in single attacks, and you must take the fight to the Locusts by battling them in their own underground lairs.

You can play the whole of story mode with a friend
The Boomer enemies are back in many different varieties
The game’s ethos of “destroyed beauty” is still in full effect
Shoot the Ticker enemies before they explode in your face

The bestselling third-person shooter is back: bigger, better, and gorier than ever before. But you can't just blast your way through it--this game requires far more tactics and cunning than your usual mindless shooter. A refined cover system means you can use the enemy as “meat shields” as well as hide behind the fully destructible scenery.

The graphics are looking better than ever, and the game is purposefully more bloody and violent than before. The story and characterisation has also been improved, making this an action game sequel with brains as well as brawn.

Key Features
  • Brothers in arms: Have a friend join or leave your single player game whenever you want, and even battle together on different difficultly levels.
  • Evolving enemies: You finally get a chance to take down the giant Brumak enemies, as well as even larger monsters and new creatures, such as the explosive Ticker.
  • Practise makes perfect: Practice the multiplayer mode on your own with computer controlled “bots”--then use the new matchmaking system to find a real opponent of the same skill level.
  • Chainsaw massacre: If you loved the chainsaw bayonet in the original game, you now can duel computer or human opponents with gaming’s messiest weapon attachment.
  • Hordes of options: Try the new five-player Horde mode, where you all face off against an unending wave of enemies, or any of the seven other multiplayer modes.

I'm not going to say anything about the game itself. It surely is great and needs no further reviewing.

My point is that buyers will have to download the additional content, extra maps etc. (over 800 MB) via an included redeem code - it is not included on the DVD which I find rather disappointing for a "complete collection". Furthermore this download is not available in Germany (or for german IPs) which is even more disappointing for me. Hopefully other (foreign) gamers will avoid my mistake and skip this one. Thanks, Epic, for creating this so-called "complete collection" and teaching me another lesson.

Auf Deutsch: Überraschung, Ihr Lieben! Diese schöne DVD enthält nicht das was draufsteht ("The Complete Collection"), sondern offenbar nur das normale Gears 2. Den Content kann man mit einem beiliegenden Gutschein downloaden - nur dass das aus Deutschland nicht geht. Der Content wird nicht mal angezeigt. Schöne Pleite. Wer Gears 2 will kann daher auch gleich die alte Fassung billiger kaufen. Diese hier braucht er nicht.

GoW2- GotY Edition - is a very good action game and contains a DLC-Card for the "All fronts map pack", which gives you access to all map packs + an extra campaign chapter.
Käufer aus DE aufgepasst, den Code für das "All fronts map pack" könnt ihr mit einem DE-Account nicht einlösen, wegen der IP-Sperre!

A great game not quite as good as GearsOfWar1 becosue of so many cut-scenes and yaping and lots of running to get places.
The all fronts is a card with a number you type in to get it. Its a pitty its not a disc as when youve had anuf of the game cant sell it or trade at the gameshop becosue once the card is used thats it nobody else can use it and it has ( game of the year ) slaped all over the box.

Some parts of this game are decent, but it has an annoying tendency to break up the good parts of the game, like the cover system and tactical gameplay, with utterly terrible sections that require you to defeat some particular monster in a specific way e.g. chop of tentacle A then toss grenade in hole B.

It's a real shame, because for the most part the game play is highly polished and a lot of fun, but no matter how much you get into running about and diving from cover to cover you know that there's another slice of fail round the corner.

Without giving too much away I'm thinking of the giant worm and the sea monster. If you buy this game you'll be getting to see these guys a lot.

I know some people argue that sections like these break up the game and offer variation from the central mechanics, but for me they're just annoying and really spoilt what otherwise could have been a decent game.

I was not a fan of the 1st gears of war however this game really suprised me. The story mode was excellent very exciting, the achievements are actually achieveable unlike the 1st game. The horde mode is dood fun and the graphics are excellent. really enjoyed this game.

Good game if you find a seller that includes the code to obtain the extra content. Beware, I purchased a 'brand new' game of the year edition from a third party seller and it was not new, and it included no code to obtain the extra content.

Frustrated by the recent delay of gears 3 decided to purchase limited edition gears 2 with all the additional maps to play on line. Money well spent as far as i am concerned the extra bonus level is excellent and worth a replay from time to time. Additional content prolongs the life of the game and will suffice until gears 3 comes out later in the year.

A real xbox classic and gaming benchmark for its time. The graphics still look good to this date, and with this being the game of the year edition you get every piece of DLC included on the disk, so you have access to all the extra content with no fuss.
