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

This one worksThis game has a good idea: A game that is designed for Co-op play. The first game was rather ok but lacked in gameplay and fun. This one works a little better in all sides. Playing alone this is boring, co-op is OK and online has a few decent modes. The big thing here is that there are better co-op games there. But this one is a decent co-op shooter game. Just make sure your partner really knows how to play shooters, it's not the easiest game to learn. Expand

The story is almost no where to be found, unless you listen to the radio messages. There are also unnecessary choices throughout the campaign that feel out of place. Salem and Rios still give there corny one liners that are amusing from time to time. The presentation is cool using some sort of camera system that ties into the campaign. The graphics are good, they will not blow you away. The gameplay is still as good as the original and needs to be played with a human partner instead of AI. The aggro meter returns and really make Army of Two unique, as the 3rd person shooting is not all that unique. The multiplayer is not that standout, except for one mode, Co-op deathmatch. Which puts Army of Two's spin on the deathmatch game mode. So Army of Two plays well, but when it comes to story it's all about the action. Expand
