Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel Review | PS Addiction

Army of Two has always been a series that has known what it was meant to be; a fun, co-op, over-the-top, chaotic, tongue-n-cheek shooter. It was immature and inappropriate. Basically, it was the perfect remedy from the countless military, serious shooters that completely overwhelm the market back in 2008. Though it never really became a giant success, it was a breath of fresh air in a deeply depressing genre. With the previous games bleeding of testosterone, as in a duo of air guitaring after a long firefight killing multiple enemies, AoT always provided good laughs and fun co-op gameplay. Sadly, Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel completely removes all the great things that this series had going for it, turning it into a standard military shooter like any other. Though you will have fun with the game, it is very disheartening to see its soul ripped out. This change would have been acceptable if the new game was amazing…but it isn’t. (Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel, PS3, Xbox 360) 3/5
