Yes, insane is more of a challenge, but still pretty short, online multiplayer is where you really get the value out of this game. Also, even though you only get acheivements for ranked games, the player matches are a lot more fun, you can hang out in a room full of freinds/acquantinces and get random maps after each round, etc. Lots of fun!

So, 3 million+ copies sold, and it cost $10 million to make, according to this wired news article... Epic is doing fine... too bad UT is on the slate before GoW2...

After beating the single player campaign in about 5 hours and playing online for about another 2 or 3, I can't recommend this game to anyone to buy, it's fun for the first little while, but after that it's too repetative and boring

Oh, and being verbally raped over Xbox Live by 12 year olds isn't fun either, they sure enjoy calling me every race known to man often, but in the bad way, and they practically crawl into any game I enter

It's a rental, not a lot of replay value

Have you tired joining an Adult Gaming site to get some friends on your list that play for fun? I joined a few months ago and have met some great players with interesting strategies and no trash talking. The game is very very fun online if you play with the right people.

This is the site I belong to: adultgamingenthusiasts

We have Gears of War on Tuesday nights but once you get a few friends from there on your list you will find they are on most nights.

Gears of Wars sweeps AIAS awards

Gears of Wars sweeps AIAS event claiming eight awards

GamesIndustry.biz

A triumphant Epic Games has swept the AIAS Awards, boasting that the company beat the Nintendo Wii for recognition by games industry peers.

"This is incredible," said Epic's CEO Michael Capps at the 10th Annual Interactive Entertainment Awards, held at the DICE Summit in Las Vegas.

"Getting sales is great, making the game we wanted and having people buy it and enjoy it is fantastic. But having our peers say it's the best game of the year? That's insane. We beat the Wii."
