Chainsaw battles in Gears of War 2

The chainsaw battle in the GoW2 GDC announcement teaser wasn’t just something thought up so Epic would have a stylish announcement video to show off, it turns out that chainsaw battles will be an actual thing in the game. When someone attempts to chainsaw you, you can now counter the action, resulting in a chainsaw vs chainsaw duel minigame, giving you the chance to kick the ass of whoever dared to attack you.

Chainsawing a Locust baddie into teenie weenie chunks of bloody meat was one of the coolest things about the original Gears, so taking that a step further was expected. Now the question remains, will accuracy and timing actually matter or will it be the same blind luck kind of a thing as attacking your foe in the original game was ?
