Gears of War 2 Launches
No doubt, the big video game launch of the week is Gears of War 2, which is hitting retail shelves today. I got a chance to play a few chapters yesterday and I'd say it seems as gripping as the first one, so far. (Some early highlights: Trying to blow incoming mortars out of the sky before they hit a gigantic tank vehicle you're riding on, and trying to shoot some quick-moving possum-sized critters that explode if they get too close to you.) The feel of the game and the basic gameplay is exactly the same as in the original game. Good stuff.
If you're a Gears fan looking for something other than the reviews, which all seem to be positive, I recommend this New Yorker profile of Epic Games and Gears producer Cliff Bleszinski. According to Bleszinski the Gears world is supposed to feel like a "sci-fi" hybrid of London and Washington, D.C. Who knew?
If anybody got a copy and wants to post their impressions here, please go for it.
