Review: Army of Two: The 40th Day

 Pages PREV 1 2
 

The first one and the second are both god awful, buy a shotgun, end game. They promised great co-op, which all that it really was, was boosties and a weak attempt at aggro based combat. There are MUCH better co-op games than this.

i'm sure the ass slap is like what u see in sports. and friendly no homo 'good job' gesture...im sure >.> <.< >.>

What i like about Army of Two is that enemies die from shots. That's about it really, but i really like how you shot something and it stays down.

lol...if this is anything like the first one just a fully blown testosterone adventure through nothingness...Might rent iut, certainly not buying it...

I wouldn't advise buying it. I payed full price for this game and beat it in 4 hours(if that) on normal. The review does say it best, rent it and play it with a friend. I just wish this review would have come out yesterday, would have saved me some cash.

the game does has some small issues,, like bad animations and sound.
But overall its a really great bromance and a great game to play with someone^^

Just a quick question before I trudge off to work. The preview image that comes up in the video... is that the official box art?

Because I've got to say, the guy in the foreground is doing a terrific job considering that THERE'S NO MAGAZINE LOADED IN HIS WEAPON.

My friend and I enjoyed the first game so we hoped to pick this one up and have fun once again.

This review brews some very interesting plot ideas in making co-op gameplay with fully developed characters. What if you could play an action game where the leads involved eachother in a romantic relationship? Gay or not? Imagine a co-op shooter version of Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Bad Movie, great idea! I Co-Op / Vs. game that you buy in two versions. Mr, or Mrs. You then progress through the story in same fashion of the film, but for most of the game against each other... first issue arises... what if one player wins over the other in the first mission... still a new idea is hard to find in the FPS shooter world...

Except when they don't, because enemies can crawl around, fire whilst downed, grab and drag each other to safety, and heal each other up the same way you can in Army of Tutu.

Resident evil 5, a game where the second player is a female.. People hated the cow.

Army of 2, a game that has 2 male characters in their co-op storyline... People automatically assume they're gay!

There's just no pleasing anyone is there..

I'd laugh if the developers just threw their hands up in the air and shipped the next co-op game with transvestites...

Hay i'd buy it.

My brother and I beat the game in less than 5hrs, which tells a lot about the amount of content you can expect. The biggest gripe I had about the game is that levels were just, to put bluntly sucked ass, they were short and very uncreative. Same shit every level never really stepped it up as far as a challenge factor goes. Needless to say we played the first together and enjoyed it, this one however he went back to gamestop and lucky to get $20 out of it. At any rate it is defiantly a renter even if they cut the price to $30. There is more content out of steam indie games that you pay $9.99.

Length does not equal quality.

Doesn't change the fact that is game was mediocre, but the length has nothing to do with it. Making longer distances wouldn't have made it better, in fact it would have made it worse.

Rofl! I was waiting for some one to say that!

Did anyone else sing to themselves "737 coming out of the sky" in the beggining? Not my favorite band, but it was still funny.

I've got Army of Two and AOT 40th Day. The first one was actually better. It had a plot. The only thing that sucked was the customization is a pain in the butt to get through.. very slow with lots of loading screens.

I only play Coop with a buddy.. even coop on the second one feels lamer. I can't tell you the number of times i've gone to "save" my buddy and the game either vaults me over the box we were hiding behind OR it forces me to grab & drag him putting me in the line of fire. Either way i'm dead. Lame lame LAME. The first one didn't do that.

I give it a 6/10.
