COG Tag 2 - In the room where the locusts cut through the door. If you are looking directly at the door they cut through, you can find it back and to the left(Under the stairway opposite the one you decended if you took the training route)

COG Tag 3 - As you exit the above mentioned door into the courtyard, there is a stairway to the left. Run up the stairs and turn left right at the top. The COG tag is in the near side corner (If enemies are North, it would be in the SW corner of the patio area, this one isnt directly under the gears logo)

COG Tag 4 - Your team points this one out to you. In the first small courtyard, look to the right of the Gear logo(Beyond the short last wall in the yard's center)

The COG tag is in the corner made by where the wall extends over part of the stairs.

COG Tag 8 - In the hallway where Jack has to open the door, there are a ton of annoying wretches. If you're facing the door that Jack is opening, it's in the far left corner. Be sure to grab this one after you defeat them, that way you're not in a REALLY bad spot after they appear.

COG Tag 9 - There's a small room that you enter where you'll find the body of Rojas. As you come down the stairs into this small area, turn right immediately(hard to see, its in the shadowy area to the right behind the pillar)

Crab Walk:

Though it may not be a cheat, it is a glitch. In order to "crab walk", you must not be host. You will go up against a wall and hold the left thumbstick over to where you can see the symbol where you can "switch" over to the other wall. You quickly hit "A" and back on the left thumbstick. You should look something like you are lagging badly. On other peoples screens, you look like you are running, but you are able to shoot and steer normally. You may not go off ledges, get downed, or or melee or you will cancel the "crab walk".

GOW - your wrong. ok, it should be bought and it is a masterpiece BUT it is slightly boring. I mean on challenging levels where sometimes you have to do time and time again (e.g. berserker - using hammer of dawn) it tends to get boring. but people who are saying, do not get it ... ignore them. gears of war 2 may be better, i wouldn't know but if i was you, buy this one first.

The third comment is perfect this game is fast paced yet never loses you there are always suprises so you never get bored.

unlike the comments of the first two idiots i believe this game is wonderful and should be bought off the shelves even at this time.

This game has previously been commented upon by idiots.

It's an enjoyable romp through the world of blowing things to bits. It's set in sci-fi land, rather than 'Clancy land' so of course you're shooting monsters...

Your gun even has a chainsaw built into it for gods sakes!

There are clever set pieces, which feel almost like Halo at times, and it is unapologetically clich├ęd. The 'cover' system is excellent, and slows combat to a realistic, and often tense pace. This is wonderfully complemented by the active reload system, which is guaranteed to have you swearing at yourself when you stuff it up!

The idiots who previously commented obviously didn't like that.

The final boss is a let down, and the cover button occasionally gets annoying, but it's a game you'll enjoy playing through again. And again. And again.
