Re: Please Rate This Review: Gears of War 2

Hey MD...

Thanks for the piece, and I especially appreciate the inclusion of visuals. = )

If you're interested in seeing this piece published here, I think the best place to start would be with the following three issues:


1> a little less storytelling about the plot and such; the whole tale could probably be condensed into three sentences.

2> get a little more formal in terms of writing style... you do a good job of expressing energy, but overall it feels a little too familiar and comfortable.

3> as far as I can tell, you found absolutely nothing wrong with the game in any aspect... Granted, I haven't played the game yet myself, but I'm always highly suspect of any review that fails to find fault anywhere. it's clear to see that you're a big fan of the game (which is great) but at the same time, it's very important to look at any title with a critical eye. a slightly more balanced approach might be warranted.

Thanks for posting!
