As many of you know, Gears of War 2 was playable in multiplayer form here at PAX for the weekend. While I somehow missed the Microsoft booth in its entirety yesterday, I got over there as soon as possible today to check out a number of games, most notably Gears of War 2, both multiplayer and single player campaign.
The first thing that impressed me about both modes was the noticeable improvement in the graphics and visuals from the first game to the second. It looks absolutely gorgeous, particularly during the single player campaign. It was super cool to watch the MS guy work his way through the destroyed city level that Epic first showed off back at E3, especially up close and personal.
All in all, I can’t wait until this game comes out, and it looks surprisingly ready to go.
Did you guys play Gears of War? How do you feel about Gears of War 2?
