The irony: knowing how discreetly Electronic Arts released the once-trumpeted Army of Two, here I will remember where I was and what I was doing when a trailer for the game came on TV. Like most of these spots, the commercial moved quickly enough to induce motion sickness - but I noticed that none of the footage appeared to be from gameplay. Where was the HUD? Why no third-person perspective? What was EA being so furtive about? My hunch: Army of Two succeeded in concept, full stop.
- Brilliant visuals, animations
- Valueless features
- Unintentionally funny
- Firearm combat encourages melee
