They brought up Host advantage from GoW 1. They've removed it for 2.

I hated pumping a guy up close with an active reload shotty, only to do no damage, him roll away from me - me from him, and he shoot me ONCE and blow my head off 15 feet away. :rock:

Freaking kills me when that happens. I can't tell you how many times I would walk up RIGHT BEHIND the host and he would have no CLUE I was there, and I would shoot him twice point blank with the shotty, he would roll away and in what appeared to be a mid-roll shot (impossible, I know) my head is bouncing away.

Contemplated picking up a 360(again) for this game, then decided I would just play over at someone's house instead.

Confirmed! Free GoW2 'Flashback' map DLC and a golden Hammerburst

Here's an OMG megaton for Gears of War 2 fanboys. That rumor regarding a five pack of multiplayer map DLC being included in new copies of Gears 2 (which was actually brought up during X08) has just been confirmed to be legit according to GamePro. No joke!

How it'll work is that every NEW copy of Gears 2 will come with a redemption code to download a free "Flashback" map pack from the XBLM. This free DLC contains five additional Gears 2 multiplayer maps which are (surprise!) remakes of classic Gears maps including Canals, Gridlock, Mansion, Subway, and Tyro Station. This will ultimately bump the total number of GoW2 multiplayer maps up to 15. We're told the Flashback map pack DLC should be available for download on launch day, but note that Epic has no plans to release the maps as paid content. It's their "thank you" present to loyal fans, so be sure to stay clear of those used copies that are code'less.

GamePro also confirmed that anyone attending a Gears 2 midnight launch event will be given a redemption code to unlock the in-game golden Hammerburst (as seen above) which features a gold plated paint scheme similar to the Collector's Edition's golden Lancer.

Reviews are in!

IGN - 9.5
TXB - 9.8

They're saying it's massive in size.

I don't know. I think the multiplayer in that - though I never played the first - may outlast Gears 2.

To me, R2's co-op is insane with seperate storylines and stuff. But GOW was one of my fav games on the 360.

We'll just have to wait and see. I might pick both up. If I had to choose one though, gears 2.
