Fans have been drooling over them for several weeks, and now the four new multiplayer maps for Gears 2 are upon us in the Snowblind Map Pack. Grindyard, Under Hill, Courtyard, and the snowy remake of Fuel Depot are all available now for 800 Microsoft points, giving players even more places to get chainsawed in half than ever before.

Adding to the value of the pack is 250 points worth of new achievements, mainly centered around the new experience system introduced in last week's title update. Achievements are now earned for reaching level 5, 15, 25, 50, and 100, with some additional requirements added to the later levels to keep things fresh. What requirements?

They should probably work on the parts of the game that are broken, rather than adding more maps. I'd definitely buy this map pack if I wasn't going to end up hating the world after 30 minutes playing a game that was never finished...

I liked the first game, but it never worked quite right...

I gave then the benefit of the doubt and bought the second game...

I will not buy a third one if they don't eventually fix this one....
