Playing Gears of War 2 feels like seeing an old friend. The game play is very similar with the control scheme unchanged for the most part. Of course, there are plenty of new weapons and enemies to encounter. Graphically the game looks spectacular in high definition. In some games cut scenes look much better than the game play, however, in Gears of War 2, that is not the case. The game play is set in darker color tones of browns and grays, giving the games environment a war torn appearance.
