Gears of War 2 (Special Edition)
Game Description: Epic's mega-hit franchise returns for a second round as Marcus Fenix and the rest of the COG forces continue to fight against the massive Locust horde occupying their planet of Sera. The game also ups the ante on the multiplayer side, upping the competitive modes to 5-on-5 and including a new cooperative "Horde" mode that pits players against 50 increasingly difficult waves of Locust enemies.
