  1. All the charisma of the protagonists is not enough to make up for the lack of substance. The gameplay tactics are primitive, and there is no feeling of fellowship that made Army of Two so fun to play.
  2. Completely useless A.I. makes playing this game by yourself absolutely infuriating, but if you can find a friend to play with, it at least becomes playable. Then it is simply just boring and repetitive.
  3. Merely a shadow of its console-based self. [Mar 2010, p.72]
  4. Pure thrash and a perfect example of how NOT to create a conversion. Buggy and depraved little brother of the great shooter is total crap and a waste of time. [Feb 2010]

    I was initially excited about the prospect of a top-down shooter to play on the go, but my excitement quickly turned to disappointment and frustration. EA tries to stuff too many peripheral gameplay components into The 40th Day, which loses focus of the point of the shoot-em-up genre. Coupled with the extremely poor AI, there just really isn't much to recommend about this game.

    I think many people compare this game to the Xbox/PS3 version. It is a psp, it doesnt has the same capabilities as the other consolesI think many people compare this game to the Xbox/PS3 version. It is a psp, it doesnt has the same capabilities as the other consoles mentioned, but it's portable, and has this awesome game. In my opinion, this games captures everything that made Army of Two: the 40th day a different shooter. From the Aggro to the weapon customisation. It is a very easy game to pick up and play. If you ask me, it is a good game to buy, if you dont want to carry around a PS3 or an Xbox 360 in a trip, or want to play at your break in school/work. I have played both versions. But if you don't travel a lot, have one big console and don't mind traveling with it (if you go somewhere), buy the other version. Full Review »

    good game, those dissing on it (especially the person above me) seem to have missed the point that this game is not the same as it would be good game, those dissing on it (especially the person above me) seem to have missed the point that this game is not the same as it would be on your ps3/xbox360. it has been transformed to be playable on the psp, and very well i might add. although the partner ai can be a drag every now and then, it is easy to get around if you are a good enough player. dont blame the ai if you cant figure this game out, as it is a straightforward tactical shoot em-up worth a play.
