  1. Army of Two: The 40th Day is dumb, goofy fun, but sometimes that’s just what the doctor ordered.
  2. It has evolved, and although maybe regular fans of the genre would wait for more new features, it is true it contributes with enough of them to catch our attention, entertain and make us enjoy.
  3. 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.
  4. The 40th Day outshines the original Army of Two in just about every way, and kicks the franchise into a higher gear.
  5. Let’s applaud the development team over at EA Montréal. They’ve made many changes and added new things to please fans as well as the non-believers without destroying the essence of what makes an Army of Two game. Still, the game could do some things better, but, so long as improvements are being made, the Army of Two franchise will be around for another go.

    TFD is so much fun to play with others that, at the end of the day, small problems or critiques with design choices won't matter. And, by all means, this is how TFD is meant to be played.
  7. This is a truly stunning sequel to a very unique game. While most of the issues from the first offering have been addressed, it’s the additions in this game that really drives it over the top.
  8. Bigger, better and meaner, Army of Two: The 40th Day represents an overall improvement from its previous installment. It’s a spectacular urban guerrilla simulation, with good textures, complex scenarios, solid framerate, and… a lot of humour!

    If you played the first AOT, you will most likely HATE this version! It truly seems as if this one should have been the first one. It plays more like an arcade whereas the first one was more true to life. The enemies are all darkly clothed and most of the backgrounds in this game are dark, so, you have a hard time even seeing what you should be shooting at. The graphics are so much less realistic, at least in single player mode (I haven't done multiplayer yet). Then, there are the endless staircases... why have you waste time on traversing staircases if nothing surprising ever happens? Plus, you can't skip the storyline cutaways... a complaint I have about the first one, too. Very disappointed in this game. Full Review »

    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 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 Full Review »

    This game is fair to say the least. It tries to set up a big story by having a shadowy organization attack Hong Kong but it failed to pull me into the game. The gameplay was only enjoyable with a friend, we spent half the afternoon getting through the game. The game gives you choices to make when you run into certain NPC's during the game but they have little to no effect on the final results of the game. Gun customization is back but even that becomes dull after a while. It's just a sub-par follow up to a shooter that was also sub-par to begin with. Full Review »
