DualShockers Review: Army of Two: The 40th Day

DualShockers writes: "I have to begin this review by getting something out of the way right from the start. Being that I'm a sucker for good marketing, I felt as though I was duped into buying the original Army of Two. I think I actually cringed when I heard that a sequel was in production. Now, after playing through Army of Two: The 40th Day (AOT: TFD), the series has for the most part completely redeemed itself. It won't go down as a classic, but it sure as hell was fun. It may be light on the story, but at the same time really heavy on the action and entertainment. I mean really, what were you expecting from a title whose cover has two juiced up guys in bulletproof hockey masks holding giant machine guns? It may not be Shakespeare, but it may just be the best action movie you've ever played."

An improvement over the first? At least that is good.

I wasn't too much of a fan of the first one, to be honest. The game had an incredible amount of potential to be great, but fell short do to clunky controls and a bit of problems on the multiplayer side. The idea, though, I thought was amazing - the fact that you actually have to work together as a "team" was seriously the strong point - and best part - of the game. I would try out 40th day... but I sure won't pay for it.

Loved the first one. Judging from the gameplay videos, the second will go above and beyond the first.

the first one was good but fell short. the idea of aggro in a shooter was cool but was poorly implemented

I've bought it yesterday. Me and a friend will sit this weekend and make some damage on lots of bad guys.

It's not really my kind of game but I have to say I do find the homosexual love story that drives this game quite touching and a sign that games developers are becoming much more open minded and willing to push the envelope.
