Ya been meaning to try that.

Actually tried connecting to the mode on LIVE, and for some reason, I have yet been able to join an multi player game yet in Gears 2. Anyone having problems as well?

GoW2:LE arrived today and man, it's pretty hard. I'm playing it on hard difficult... so far I'm really enjoying it. It is better than GoW1 which is nice and I actually liked how they get a bit personal with Dom's story. His wife is hawt!

I agree some textures did suffer and sometimes it reminds to be blurry (not loading more detailed textures) but still one of prettiest games around. I can't wait for GoW3.

I agree with most... the game is much better than the first. I thought GoW was good but somewhat overrated... good game, but not a blockbuster... this one is a blockbuster though. The campaign is SO much more epic, and perhaps most importantly the graphics and enviornments are actually interesting and stylish now.

Color me impressed... if it weren't for Dead Space, Fallout 3 and Mirror's Edge, I would be playing it non-stop. As it is, I'm in chapter 2.

I'm somewhere in Act 2. Wow, this game rocks. It gets better farther in the game. Much better than I expected. They have improved nearly everything from GoW1. The story is great. I'm going to try and finish it either tomorrow or Sunday. I'll probably replay for co-op.

Played 5 player Horde match. Lasted to wave 33! Exhausted.

Horde is a great coop mode but it takes too many waves before it gets really tough for people who know what they're doing.

If you run a private match, you can start at any wave that you have beaten.

Cool I didn't know that.

But there is also an exploit where the Locus can't get over or shoot past the shields. You can place a shield as an obstacle. The ones riding those creatures can't get over it and the grenade shooting ones can't shoot over it.

Also often wave 19 is harder than wave 20 because while the enemies get tougher in wave 20 you get the same number of enemies as in wave 10.

And 50 waves is too long. Sometimes you just want it to end but you don't want to let down the people you've been fighting with. But starting at wave 25 would fix that.

Getting the same number of enemies and makeup in wave 10,20,30,40,50 is intentional, as the enemies themselves get 10x harder each 10 levels.

Me and my brother noticed the shield thing too, if it were not for the shields we would not have been able to beat horde mode. Normal size mobs can kick it down though as can Sires.

We just barricaded our selves in a room then snuck out to get gatling guns when opportunity arose.

Why do they feel a need to add vehicle levels? I just finished the vehicle level and it was a chore. It was pretty at times but it's not challenging plus it's rather long.

Most people said the first GoW was nearly perfect. The only negative was the vehicle level. So, why add another vehicle level?

Other than that it's awesome.
