What do these ratings mean?

Like many Gears of War fans, many fans have been waiting months and months to get the release of the "Epic" game. Gears of War 2 has added so many details and logic to the game in hoping gamers like myself would buy this great part in the series. So what has been added to the game? Here's a little list of what i can say from experience

Horde Mode: In this game mode, many gamers and friends survive waves and waves of Locust Grubs. When reaching a higher wave, there will be stronger Grubs, and much more of them. So surviving is a factor.

WingMan: What's better than 2 teams of 5? How about 5 teams of 2? With Wingman you're and your partner are fighting four other teams. Each team must fight and stay alive. 15 is the score limit so you must outsmart other gamers. Great tip is to not leave your bud's side

KOTH: King Of The Hill is a newer addition. One ring to trie to capture, and manys players shooting at you and your team, What can go wrong? Will there's many possibilities, but there are only 3 ways of leaving this game, a Victory, a lost, or hitting your guide button and signing out then back in because you were probably tired, upset, or had to do something else.

Guardian:  Unlike the other team leader game in Gears of War. This time you're able to respawn and respawn until your leader is dead. Like Rainbow Six Vegas 2, the point of this game is to eliminate the other teams' leader and other minions.  How much fun will you have by being the leader of you group? Great tip, don't leave without a body guard.

Ghost Camera: This new feature allows you to go and take a screenshots of whatever is going in your match. Unfortuately to use this feature, you're going have to be dead.

Can we say Capture The Flag?: No! You cannot say that! But, why? You can't say that because of it's not a flag. Instead of going to the other teams respawn retreating back with their flag. There Epic has made a default player that a player must down and hold hostage, then they must get back to wherever the default wants to go. Unfortuately other players on the separate team wants it. You must defend yourself and to hold it hostage, it's so simple NOT! The default player also has a weopon to defend itself, what do you think, it'll just let you shoot it and make it a POW?

What i thought was a downside:

Matchmaking system is great, but slow to find players

People still call each other noobs, even thought they fixed the "Host Shotgun"

 

With a great game who can think Gears of War 2 would be terrible? Even bringing back characters from the dead to play as in multiplayer is so amusing (Play Gears of War to do this)

The storyline is definately a great improvement. Adding a story that will allow to search more details into who the characters are, how long it's been since E-Day, and why is this all happening. This game has definately improved dramatically. I give this game an A.

(My opinion) Good Job Epic, you guys definately deserve it
