A carefully orchestrated series of mysterious catastrophes is dragging Shanghai to the brink of ruin, and now the Army of Two must fight their way through ravaged city districts as they try to beat the odds and uncover the secret of the 40th Day. ARMY OF TWO: THE 40th DAY features a bigger playbook of new co-op moves that either player can use at any time, opening up new strategies and countless choices for both players. The result is a bigger, better, more organic and immersive co-op experience that lets gamers put their best two-man tactics to use whenever and wherever they want. [Electronic Arts] Expand

  1. The feature-rich, action-packed gameplay—co-op and solo—is a blast, but it’s the explosive presentation, that literally sees Shanghai falling to flaming pieces all around you, that steals the show and will have you watching your—and your buddy’s—back.

    A disaster movie in a game package, Army of Two: The 40th Day capitalizes on its co-op play to deliver an awesome action experience that's incredibly fun to play. Co-op moments feel more natural.
  3. A solid, not groundbreaking, action experience for its fans. If you like to shoot stuff, and your friend does too, you've got a winner.
  4. It has some issues that at this point in a generation are pretty much unforgivable, but if you are willing to look past them, you’ll find there’s a decent cooperative shooter there.
  5. Army of Two: The 40th Day doesn’t hide that it's all about the cooperative game mode. But for a purely cooperative game, it is quite low on content. The other game modes might be decent, but have been done better by other games many times before. Army of Two: The 40th Day could have been the ultimate cooperative game, but failed because it wanted to be everything else as well.

    It's still dumb but a lot tighter and more fun than the original. Just make sure you play it in co-op, okay? [Mar 2010, p.74]
  7. Pass on this title and save your money for the better games coming out this year. There will be no lack of them.

    The 40th Day is not a serious soulless war sim (like the dull Modern Warfare 2). It is instead a compilation of Bad Boys, Die Hard, Under The 40th Day is not a serious soulless war sim (like the dull Modern Warfare 2). It is instead a compilation of Bad Boys, Die Hard, Under Siege and LethalWeapon. Yeah it's throw away and the campaign will be done and dusted in 4hrs, but it is seriously fun and you will play through it again. What a way to start 2010. Expand

I in general love action third person games like gears of war. This game has a lot of positive vibe in it self. A lot of pure action, where your partner and you cooperate to eradicate the enemies ( by the way , I don't know who those enemies are , only that there are a lot of them and that they wore red. I think there are five or six types of enemies. Cooperation with your partner is actually very functional, and i like how the aggro system function. I played alone, but my AI companion was smart i can say.
    About the story, i know nothing,(some guys in red attacks Shanghai and two of us are trying to extract our selves and during the course we killed all invading force:).
    But what matters to me regarding this game is very fluid action, functional cooperation with partner ( off course weapon modification system is great). Level designs can vary but all in all i found sometimes atmosphere very enjoyable and immersing.
    Graphics are very good and very fluid.
    This game is not excellent it lacks personality , maybe a little short, but it was very fun an enjoyable experience.

The best parts about the game are the weapon customization and the sections where you and your partner take different paths. Overall a simple but fun game to enjoy with a "bro" Expand
