In my opinion, GoW had extremely tedious gameplay, I played through it with my brother on co-op one and never touched it again.  Every level is exactly the same thing, run, duck, shoot, repeat.  It's basically an elaborate game of whack a mole.  The story and character developent are practically non existant and it ends on a worse cliff hanger than Halo 2.  I was literally getting ready for the next level, when the credits started rolling.  I never really tried the multiplayer though, so maybe there was something there that was really amazing.  But I did think it was stupid that the single player campaign has about four weapons, and there's hundreds of multiplayer exclusive ones..

But you have to admit it was an amazingly stylish and fantastically excecuted game. The lack of weapon variety was definitely a big flaw, especially given that half the weapons they *did* give you were useless (I'm looking at you, every weapon except the chainsaw gun, the sniper rifle and the bow). I think thats partially made up for by the satisfaction of sawing a locust in half or blowing its torse apart with an explosive arrow.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Here's a real trailer for the game! Man after almost  2 years sense the first game I thought I was over it and I wasn't going to get #2. After watching this trailer, how could you not want to play this game?

*Almost forgot, you should be able to download it from XBL Marketplace.

I think we played different games.

Personally, I really enjoyed GOW.  Though it had some serious failings (lack of maps/options) the multi player was a blast.  Four on Four was a nice if you were playing with friends.  Setting up suppressive fire to let the rest of your team attempt to flank was great. 
I liked how individually powerful each character was.  You start on even ground, with similar weapons however, even having the superior weapon pickup was in no way a guarantee of victory.  A number of times I won games that start 3v1 or even 4v1.

The single player campaign was pretty standard as far a FPSs go.  Convoluted story basically amounting to: Kill monsters, defeat final boss.  However, there were some great parts.  Having to get the one monster to chase you and diving out of the way at the last second so he would break open the wall was fun.  So was trying to avoid him long enough to use the hammer of dawn.

I should also mention that my fondest memory of this game was when I took down a Frag Doll on the PC version using 360 controllers (Which is just so terribly wrong).  My partner had her and another COG team pinned and I chainsawed them both.  :)
