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.
  2. Army of Two: The 40th Day has taken past criticism on the chin. Salem and Rios have evolved from disagreeable meatheads into entertaining anti-heroes while the setting is now much more befitting to the gameplay. If you're looking for an intense but concentrated gaming experience, we think the masked mercs deliver. [Jan 2010, p.68]
  3. While we can't ding EA for extra content, we wish that content had come in the form of more co-op! [Feb 2010, p.80]
  4. If you have anyone to play it with, either online or at home then Army of Two: The 40th Day is a great purchase but if you only play single player you won't get the most out of it.
  5. The real saving grace though for The 40th day is the multiplayer options.
  6. Army of Two: The 40th Day has improved, although it feels a little rushed as a number of glitches become unavoidable. The design also feels a little lazy with little all around variation.
  7. Army of Two: The 40th Day is a big disappointment in so many ways. The first game had it's flaws, but was a good game for it's time. These days we expect more from a game, and this just doesn't cut it. An all to short campaign still feels repetitive, an multi player-component that lacks a distinctive feel. But worst of all is the controls, which will give you headache for a very long time. A swing and a miss, EA Montreal.

    A supremely good game that has the ability to be a game without selling itself out with being overloaded with faults or quizzical motives.A supremely good game that has the ability to be a game without selling itself out with being overloaded with faults or quizzical motives. Though as a person who loves both guns and customization, I found myself in the menus more then I was in a game, simply because the customization is fun to mess around with. Me and my friend were able to have fun with this and enjoy quality time together. Expand

If you love high energy action, this is the game for you - a great disaster setting, fresh lead characters and great combat make this a better game than Gears in a lot of ways. I also liked the fact that the moral decisions you make in the game don't have a clear good or bad outcome - really makes a difference, especially if you're playing with another human being and not the AI.

    How can you rate a game based on a DEMO? The demo ONLY allowed co-op, no multiplayer, no solo, no mask customization, no in depth upgrades. How can you rate a game based on a DEMO?

It looks better, runs better and has a multiplayer I can enjoy for hours on end. Expand

    I agree that alot of the improvements in this installment like the graphics, and lots of different custom options are very much a welcomed I agree that alot of the improvements in this installment like the graphics, and lots of different custom options are very much a welcomed suprise. The thing that makes me give this such a low score is the fact that this game is advertised as a co-op stlye game, but yet , the co-op and multi-player functions are all but broken and unplayable.Freezing up in the same spot for well over a half hour and another hour of lag deaths breaks this game for me. These "features" are the whole reason I purchased the game in the first place. To launch a game with these faults is inexcuseble. For all its improvements I cannot advise anyone to buy this game. Rent or stay away. Expand
