In todays economy there is nothing more important that figuring how to stretch our dollars. One way that i do that is trying to make sure the Xbox 360 games i purchase have downloadable content. this allows you to keep you game relatively new while not having to fork over $50-60 bucks in the process(most content upgrades are about $10-20 usd).
Anyhow last night I bought the Snowblind Map Pack for Gears of War 2. At first i thought it was going to be a set of OK maps that are set in the snow as a selling gimmick, boy was i wrong. Within 10 minutes of downloading my team and I were knee deep against the horde in a battle for our lives.
The map pack include four maps. Three are brand new(Courtyard, Grindyard & Underhill) and there is a throwback map for the Veteran Gears(Fuel Depot & yes the snow gimmick is present).
As always the maps are beautifully created. The development team did a really good job utilizing vertical space on these maps allowing players to set up a defensive schemes to snipe enemies from long range while other teammates defend the location.
With so much going on in the world and so many people trying to get you buck do yourself a favor and buy the maps and keep the fight for humanity alive for a bit longer.
