This third-person co-op action-shooter utilizes the new Frostbite 2 engine for optimal destruction. You and your partner shoot and destroy anything and everything in your path to bring down a violent drug cartel that’s taken control of Mexico. In partner-based missions, each player has to take on and meet individual objectives to achieve a common goal. The more effective your teamwork, the greater your combined reward as the new Overkill mode thrusts devastating power upon you for truly grandiose mass destruction.

    Provides co-op fun in its purest form. But the game not only scores with its fantastic co-op mode, but also with the variety of playable weapons, the sound and its thrilling atmosphere. The only minor disappointment comes from its visual realization, which appears a little bit antiquated. Nevertheless this is another superb entry in the Army of Two franchise.

    Surprisingly fun, this Army of Two is likely to go unnoticed because of all the games launched these weeks. However, it delivers what it promises: loads of fun.

    Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel is a worthy addition to the Army of Two franchise. Third person shooter fans will feel right at home here and as a fan of the series I enjoyed the story. There are some issues with the game and it lacks replay ability other than to unlock more gear or playing on higher difficulty settings. The Devil's Cartel is a solid shooter with some key differences from most other shooters on the market.

    Comfortably familiar game-play contrasts against badly written and possibly fan-upsetting story. A bit too buggy and repetitive and loses much of its charm when playing without a human partner. Sadly, the best parts by far are the mask-painting tool and the possibility to play it with a friend.

    A decent action game that entertains for the moment. There are mechanics that encourage cooperation, but other than that there's not much to praise as characters, level design and AI (amongst others) are sub par.

    The elements that made its predecessors interesting have been all but destroyed, making Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel a functional shooter but little more.

    We'd have hoped that if a third iteration in the series was done, it was with the overall goal of surpassing the quality of the two average previous games. But the Devil's Cartel ends-up being a sub-par TPS, bugged, limited, uninspired and even lazy in its game design.

    I give this game a 9 only because of it's couch co-op play. There isn't too many couch co-ops that exist like they did back in the old days. I like how you can work together as a two man army and give cover fire for reach other. I think the graphics are great, the story is full of excitement kinda like watching a crazy action movie. The ability to customize your guns, armour, and mask are a huge plus and make your characters unique. If you have a buddy, a family member, or a friend who you would like to hang out with and play an awesome game together, then you must buy this game! If you are solo and want the online option, it may or may not be worth the money. Expand

    Decent story, great graphics and excellent gameplay make Army of two The Devil's Cartel a experience that you don't want to miss. The customization aspect is better than ever with a lot of weapons and masks that you can personalize any way you want. The story is simple our new protagonists Alpha and Bravo are in a fictitious city in Mexico named La Puerta the objective remove The Cartels from the city. The story can sometimes become bland and boring but the new characters can definitely be enjoyable and welcomed, sadly the game can get repetitive at times but it never becomes a game breaking issue. The co-op is excellent by taking different paths and covering your friend from a top building to just decide to rescue or leave someone it just adds more replayability to the game. In conclusion Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel is a great game that delivers a fun and interesting experience at times if your not a fan of the franchise or just not love that much third person shooter games you should wait for a price drop.

    EA is at it again. This game requires that you sign in to Origin before you are allowed to play it. If you have lousy internet you will not be able to play this mediocre title, so maybe that's actually a good thing (unless you already paid for the damn thing). Gameplay is always linear; AI is watered down, even on the hardest difficulty. The only way to enjoy this game is with a friend and while you both are intoxicated. Otherwise the game is unchallenging, unimagintive, and the repetitive. Oh and did I mention the story was written by a 12 year old. Skip this one and invest the money you save on a worthier title.
