    Cool. Despite how unfashionable it appears to have become I enjoyed the first one, so I'll probably take a look at this one too.

    I loved it. It just seems there are always outspoken people that make it fashionable to disslike any popular video game. I have heard it with pretty much any big franchise... except Mario.

    I enjoyed Gears. But over the course of the last couple of years I have lost all of my respect for Epic and Cliffy.

    Will I pick up Gears 2? Yeah, most likely. So long as the gameplay remains solid enough, it should be just fine.

    I don't get the whole press A thing. A certainly wasn't the button I used the most when I played. And there's no reason to put multiple actions to a lot of different buttons if there's no reason to. It was a solid, but repetitive and short game.

    If any game needs the "press A!" treatment it's Resident Evil 4.

    Eh, it's more interesting than a Halo 4 announcement.

    Man Gears of War was a blast, look foward too it

    I hope the bullets actually penetrate and tear up enemies now, instead of just seeing bloody splats.

    Pressing A to hope that it is longer than the first. I really liked the first but me and my cousin beat it in two short nights.

    It took me ages to get into the first one, I spent too ling trying to work out what the other buttons did. But I enjoyed it once I'd worked it out, the speedload on the sniper rifle and co-op were the best aspects.

    I'll most likley buy this but I'm looking forward to Prototype far more.

    curious. i actually played the game recently and i don't think press A came up once. i think this is a rather large conspiracy created by Twist.

    well there is this thing when you pause the game, 'options' i beleive, where you can turn that shit off if needed.

    i did trade it, but when i got my replacement 360 i got a 'free' copy again :)
