Gears of War 2 and Resistance 2

It’s Easier To Pick The Leader Of The Free World


The only choice able to rival the consternation facing undecided civic duty-doers today might be taking a stand for one of this week’s blockbuster new releases. Fear not, for unlike your singular opportunity to pull that hallowed lever, nothing but your budget can prevent you from taking both these bad boys home.

Some similarities exist between GOW 2 and Resistance 2, not the least of which is that they are unabashedly awesome. Both are exclusive to their consoles, both offer near endless multiplayer appeal to supplement the single player and co-op campaign modes, and both ask you to repel an inhuman scourge threatening the Earth’s very existence. Speaking of, did anyone ask the Presidential hopefuls where they stand on the issue of inhuman scourges?

My hope for you, dear reader, is that you needn’t make any more tough choices this week. Both of these gems look to fulfill their promises to the gaming public. If you were to press me on a choice though, I’d give the edge to Gears of War 2; after all, it’s still got a chainsaw rifle to help you reach across the aisle.
