  1. 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.
  2. The 40th Day outshines the original Army of Two in just about every way, and kicks the franchise into a higher gear.
  3. Army of Two: The 40th Day is dumb, goofy fun, but sometimes that’s just what the doctor ordered.
  4. 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!

    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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.

    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 playsIf 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 »

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.
