Kotaku writes: "Jonah Wade is a madman whose paid soldiers are blowing up Shanghai. Also, he used to make action movies to recruit soldiers. That's one of the many absurdly excellent ideas in the unfortunately choppy Army of Two: The 40th Day.
The mutli-million selling Army of Two series is back with a console sequel, the first big Electronic Arts release of 2010. And woe to those who expect simply a retread of the overly macho 2008 Army of Two, another third-person shooter designed to be played by a pair of gamers. Woe to those expecting just more of EA's spiritual sibling to Epic's Gear of War. This is an idea-packed game that signals co-op gaming at a crossroads."
