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. Overall, Army of Two The 40th Day is a much more polished experience than the first game and greater care was exercised in trying to address the concerns everyone had from the original title.

    This is a beefed-up version of the original game, and still stands as one of the most impressive co-op shooters available. If you have a friend to play with this is one of the best experiences you can have with this type of game. But if you intend to fly solo this is definitely not the game for you. The campaign is short, the helper AI seriously has some faults and the game just wasn't designed to be played alone.
  5. Many of the issues with the original title have been addressed, but the brevity and lack of replayability make this co-op third person shooter a strictly-for-hire title.
  6. The 40th Day is just far too inexcusably frustrating to heartily recommend, but if what you're looking for is a hefty serving of disposable, bombastic fare, then this will be right up your street.
  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.

I enjoyed all 3 of the entries in this series but this is the one that I enjoyed most . Me and my cousin spent hours on this game during the school holidays of 2010 . As unbelievable as it may sound , we are still playing this game together when we plug the 360 in . This game has minor flaws such as glitches and the dialogue sound is too soft but this does not remove the fun that lives within . Expand

    this is the first AOT i played don't know whether its preceedors were better or not but this is one hell fo an action powerpacked game withthis is the first AOT i played don't know whether its preceedors were better or not but this is one hell fo an action powerpacked game with intense moments, tension building up. playing alone is really pain in the ass as everyone focuses on you!! best to be played in co-op mode this is how a shooter game should be. another awesome part of this game story angles can be chosen every decision takes you to a different direction and weapon customization and the increase in opponent weaponry damage as the story progresses adds a challenging theme during gameplay Expand

Throughout the game the player is faced with a range of decision, which are quite challenging, rewarding and down right sad. The 40th day feels more like a B movie production, though with its limited budget. Do not let this title pass under your rater. I would consider getting this game on a sale, its money well spent.

While it wasn't difficult (enemies weren't hard to kill), this game is extremely cheap. Enemies will randomly spawn (sometimes from behind), and you'll get killed without feeling a rumble on the controller. I've also died a number of times when I was stuck in cover when I didn't want to be.

    Rent this game or buy it used for cheap if you really want to play it. Otherwise, avoid it.

    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
