Gears of War 2 is set to release in a few months. They have a lot to live up to. One of the biggest things I remember about Gears of War was the fact that the achievements actually took skill to get. I mean, yes, even if you were complete garbage you could get them eventually. After thousands of hours of playing of course. That led to a great challenge and of course the mixing up of weapons you used.
The list of Gears of War 2 achievements has just been released by the creators. You can check them out here at IGN. That list is missing a few Gears of War 2 achievements that can be found on the Gears of War 2 website.
What are my impressions? I’m a bit disappointed. There are virtually no really challenging achievements for us. I was hoping they’d do the same “get 100 kills with this gun”. That way you actually had to get good at the game to beat the entire thing. I won’t let something like achievements ruin a game for me, although these new weapons and changed gameplay styles are starting to worry me.
