10 years late to the game I just beat Gears of War 2. Pretty spectacular. Thanks to the X-BOX Game Pass I’m getting to revisit some great games that I’ve missed out on. Ten bucks a month for over a hundred games, including many Grass releases like Halo and Gears it’s a really good deal.
Gears 2 had plenty of big, over the top moments. Here’s my top 5. Oh and spoilers for a 10 year old game.
1. Locust experiment.
It’s pretty messed up when Delta gets underground. The Locust have been capturing humans for experimentations. Tai, who was with Delta as the game started had been left behind and shows up in a cage on a “torture barge.” Once Marcus and the guys rescue him, he’s obviously been traumatized and he reaches for Marcus’s shot gun and blows his own head off. Damn Tai.
As you progress down the Locust tunnels you see some pretty large caterpillar like creatures moving aorund the can serve as mobile cover for Delta Squad.
Well after fighting for quite some time, cities above ground are being sunk to the caverns believe Sera. You discover a giant version of the rockworms is causing the the destruction. Now that’s a pretty bad ass thing. I mean I know Tremors is a long scfi franchise, but I was surprised by this in this game. Well another Carmine brother gets eaten by the giant worm and as the rest of Delta is escaping, the monster rises up and swallows your Raven chopper whole.
You of course survive the chomping and then have to fight your way out of the monster, and hey
