Top 5 Wish List for Gears of War 2

1. Chainsaw Fights:

Hands-down, the Lancer assault rifle's chainsaw bayonet attachment is one of the coolest - and most disturbing - features in Gears of War…period. The heavy automatic weapon is a staple piece of equipment for many intense firefights, but nothing beats revving it up and getting up-close and personal with the Locust Horde. Sawing a nearby foe into little pieces in a spray of bloody mess is endlessly entertaining, but it also works well as a last-ditch attempt at survival when you're out of ammo and the horde is breathing down your neck. For many players, this instant-kill gore producing attachment guaranteed the Lancer a top slot in the weapons queue. One thing we can count on with certainty is the chainsaw bayonet will not fall by the wayside in the next installment.


The sparse-but-thrilling teaser trailer for Gears of War 2 prominently features a chainsaw melee between Fenix and a Locust warrior. Both are wielding Lancers, and the latter ends up ripped asunder with the ubiquitous splatter players are now accustomed to. Epic may have just thrown that in - quite successfully - to get gamers' attention, but we'd like to see this put into play heavily in the finished product. Lancer-wielding Locusts is an intriguing concept, and having to fight them off at point-blank range with a buzzing chainsaw bayonet in your face could make for some brutally intense gameplay.

On both the Xbox 360 and PC, Gears of War is a major accomplishment that sets the bar high for third-person action games. A compelling and gritty story, cutting-edge visuals, immersive tactical gameplay, and serious style make the original title a must-have for either platform. We expect Gears of War 2 on Xbox 360 (and hopefully a subsequent release on PC) will build substantially on the rock-hard foundation Epic has already laid out. Stay tuned for Cheat Code Central's ongoing coverage of the title throughout 2008 as additional details are announced.
