Posted: October 4, 2011 in Gears of war 2

Gears of war 2 is the second installment to the trilogy of Gears of war. Gears of war 2 promises to bring an upgraded multiplayer experience with slight improvements and additions to Xbox live.
Game mode additions

Submission

Submission – This is a variant on classic Capture-the-Flag, but instead of having a flag sitting in the center of a stage waiting to be captured, a hostile AI-controlled Stranded will be waiting to do battle. The main aim is to capture the AI and hold on to him as long as possible in the dedicated zone.

Wingman

Wingman – Here the ten possible players, up from the original game’s eight, are broken up into sets of 2. Each pair will share the same character model, and have to hunt throughout the map to kill as much of the opposition as possible.

Guardian – Guardian is basically assassination applying the same rules as having to kill each leader to deplete the oppositions re-spawns

Horde

Horde  – Horde mode is a co-op bases addition to the game, allowing four players to battle through 50 waves of locust. The main objective is to complete all 50 waves for an achievement and leaderboard scores.

Ink grenade

Ink Grenade – When triggered, the Ink Grenade releases a thick, black and green poisonous smoke for a short amount of time. The smoke damages enemies and obscures the vision of enemy players

Mortar

Mortar – Like all mortars, it is a long-ranged, indirect-firing weapon intended to deal with troops in cover, keep foes pinned down, and deal with large clusters of enemies at once.

Scorcher

Scorcher – The Scorcher is a lightweight, man-portable, dry chemical-fuel flamethrower

Problems

like Gears of war high expectations where for the multiplayer, fans where wanting new maps new weaponry which Epic provided, however the situation which was still needed to be fixed was the lag and hoast advantage. Hosts where running riot online killing everyone due to them not receiving any lag. When the game was first released no one noticed the lag and was quite happily playing the game with lag, however when such games as Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 2 came out which seemed to have zero lag, Gears of war 2 was put to shame.
