Most people have dropped it due to the glitchers, a-holes, and boosters for CoD4 or Halo 3.

I still have it, but have not played MP in a looooong time.

I think it's still in the top 5 XBL games.. so yes, people still do play it. I do occasionally, but only if a few of my friends do.

This was a great game to play co op online and a few people still play it but it is over a year old and many new games have come out and like KosherInfidel said everyone right now are playing Halo 3 COD4 and the new Burnout game. But if you have not played it and can get it for a good price then pick it up, its worth it.

I just got GoW for Christmas and beat it about two weeks ago. I ONLY played 2-player co-op with my brother and it was one of the best video gaming experiences I've ever had. I doubt I'll ever go through and beat it by myself, co-op was just that awesome.

I agree. The game was fantastic on co-op, and a great benchmark for other games to come. The upcoming "Faith and a .45" will have a lot in common with Gears.

I know also that an upcoming magazine is supposed to have content and info about Gears 2. See my blog link below for more info. Can't wait.

Only issue I had with the game was with the split screen co-op. Using a horizontal split made it much more difficult to throw grenades.

Yah, I know that's a petty issue...but it annoyed us enough times to sort of leave a bad taste in our mouths.

Would be nice to have the option to pick either horiz. or vertical.... especially on widescreen monitors.

I understand why they chose to go with the vertical split considering there really isn't a lot of "vertical" enemies in the game, so a wider field of view is beneficial. I'm just used to playing a horizontal split on a widescreen...when you sit on a couch and have your own "side", it's much more natural, to me...

I was hoping to hear some more about GEARS 2 at DICE, but so far nothing. It's cool that Kudo Tsunoda is now onboard and working on GEARS content... which likely means #2 in the series.

For those who don't know him, he was the director for Fight Night: Round 3.... another outstanding game. And I don't even like boxing.

Did y'all know the guy who does the voice of Marcus on GoW does the voice of Bender on Futurama? Pretty cool!

yeah, I had heard that some time ago. Very cool. The voice work was excellent on the game. Really loved the banter and dialogue in the game.

I just picked this up a few days ago. I know I'm a bit late to the game but I'm really enjoy it a lot, the pure satisfaction that comes with the chainsaw bayonet and perfect reloads. I just recently finished the casual co op with a buddy of mine and we're half way through it again on insane mode. Just thought I'd put in my two cents.

Yup - they are. And you can get them on both platforms.

That is, you could earn a total of 2000 achievement points on this title.

I'm still looking to get all the Dom achievements myself as well as pick up a couple more COG tags. Gears is one of the better co-op games on the 360.
