Re: Post here when you beat a game. I mean it!

I beat Gears 2.

It's a great game. A lot of fun, and everything I expected it to be. There were some surprises (the Rockworm and the fish boss) and some disappointments (making the game too much of a literal "thrill ride"). It's better than part 1, but that's to be expected.

Overall just a mere footnote in a year that's ending with some solid releases.

The story wasn't so bad. The dialogue wasn't horrible either. Penny Arcade seems to have a problem with the "ten shitloads" line, but I thought it was funny for what it is.

Dead Space was a much better game though.
