The 40th Day is much more enjoyable and believable than its predecessor with a much better story, better use of the characters and a great setting in Shanghai. In terms of gameplay, it hasn't changed that much but it does feel more refined and polished. The aggro meter still exists which draws enemies' attention to whatever character is doing the shooting, allowing the other player to strafe and surprise them. It's pretty difficult to do solo, so I would recommend playing this game in co-op either locally or online."
