I got it, I like it, but it felt like I was playing most of it underground, which got boring fast, I would of liked more defensive struggles, with lines being completely overwhelmed, and the vehicle stages were crap, especially the brumok bit, spending ages trying to get around corners, and not seeming to take any damage at all when being shot.

its an average game, a game you don't mind having in your collection, but honestly probably won't be in it for that long

There is already a GOW 2 thread. But yea the vech stages where very crap and boring. The MP I think is a nice improvement over GOW 1.

I think the new MP is going to give it the most life, but very few Maps is never a good thing

the vehicle section is good fun. in fact, the entire game is goddamn great.
go and read/comment on my review if you want more info.

On the subject of Rat Ogres:
But if we give them laser eyes and mounted guns, we'll have to bring in Clan Skryre, and everyone knows how much those limp-tailed snuff addicts overcharge.

I have to say I was very disappointed with this game. I finished it in a day, when the first one lasted me a week or two. The new weapons weren't great apart from the mortar. I didn't feel that the story was advanced a whole lot either. It just seemed to be the same game as the first with very little innovation on the original that you would expect from a developer capable of much better.

All in all, I think it was a lazy effort to cash in on the popualrity of the first game, hoping the online mode would hide the flaws in the sequel.

The first GoW was pretty short too...I finished it in a day an a half lol
MP in GoW2 is extremely fun; I'm glad they nerfed the shotgun to the point where other weapons are viable options

the shotgun isn't nerfed that much, if someone shoots you at point blank range, your dead, what more would anyone expect from a shotgun?, 1 shot kills from quarter of a mile?
