Update: And here's Gamespot's version.
And here comes E3. IGN's put a new video and impressions of Gears of War 2's multiplayer up. There's a heap of new direct-feed footage in the video, which is cut with an interview with dev lead Cliff Bleszinski.
Do watch. There are comparison shots of the first game and its sequel on the preview, which runs to five pages. Read it if you can. Video's after the break.
