Default anyone got gears 2 yet?+a semi-review

Just wondering because I haven't seen any thread here proclaiming its the greatest game ever yet :P.
I played it yesterday and frankly it was dissapointing its good but it's not as great as it was hyped up to be and the fun thing still remains chainsawing people,chainsaw duels are few and far between for those wondering how they are there fun but just the mashing of the same button over and over again, the campaign is great fun but the story was kind of dissapointing. the multi-player is almost the same as the first one with there being the pick-up-enemies-and-use-them-for-cover thing,that is done really well but it's annoying that you can't pick up ammo and stuff without dropping the guy(snapping his neck actually). so all that being said I would rate the game an 8.5.(graphics are amazing though).

I like the game very much. They have made a really brilliant story out of a decent one that the last game was. I'm not entirely finished though. Just got past the annoying fish thingy... At one point me and my friend almost decided to mail cliff blezinski (or whatever) and say something along the lines of this: "WHAT THE HELL CLIFF?! Played too much Nintendo lately?" The worm and that fish was annoying as hell, but the storyline was awesome. I have to say that you must have completed the first one to get all the references and such but you don't have to. It only means you wont get all the jokes and references to past events.

When thats all said. The game is really one of the best released this fall.

I think im going to back Gecko up - if you wanna post an in depth review do so in another thread with "[Spoilers]" in the topic title.

Anything else and I'll modify it.

Yeah, I saw some spoilers above and wasn't happy. However, I was able to skip them without much incident

I want this game, but currently I'm not in the mood for shooters. Mirrors is next, then its gonna be a toss up between this and End War - depending on what I am in the mood for.

Very looking forward to this game though
