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.
To me , this game is very underrated . 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 .
The interaction between the two main characters extends beyond the trivial buddy moves from the first game and becomes an integral part of the journey. Marry that to some satisfyingly chunky gunplay and the odd spectacular, building-levelling explosion and you have an action game that is far more fun than it has any right to be.
Even though I think they ultimately contributed to the Army of Two's inconsistent tone, which moves from "flippant" to "serious business about how messed up people can get," the morality moments are what I'll remember most about The 40th Day. Not the solid cooperative play, nor the snazzy graphics where buildings fall apart, nor even the little flaws that still annoy me at times; but whether or not I chose to look the other way when that one guy closes the door in that one place.
Army of Two: The 40th Day is a significant improvement on the first title, developing some of the original’s best techniques and features further. Unfortunately, the lack of anything particularly unique within the gameplay is disappointing, and isn’t helped by the poor EA servers – a crucial factor for a co-operative title.
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. 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.
A surprisingly good FPS that never fails to be fun, especially with the capability of split screen. 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.
Army of two : TFD is a very very fun game. The graffics are smooth and the co-op capability is immense. The custimization of the guns is insane and generally the game as a whole is worth a buy. thier isn't really a game were the review has been so short but their you go!
I cannot tell you how disappointed I am in this game it is the Worst in the Trinity and a story is just bad bad bad bad bad bad If you really want to try it and give it a shot but I cannot in the world recommended
Le premier était calamiteux, le second Army est un peu mieux. En coop, c'est peut-être intéressant mais en solo si l'IA se comporte mieux qu'auparavant, ce n'est pas toujours grandiose. L'interface a également fait quelque progrès alors que la réalisation se situe désormais dans le haut du panier ; la VF est comme d'habitude chez EA, excellente.
Des prises de décisions ont été ajoutées, soit, mais quelle pitié d'en voir les conséquences aussi rapidement dans une petite séquence minable en flash 3 couleurs ! Finalement Army reste fidèle à lui-même en ce qui concerne son caractère très générique : il voudrait être un Gears mais il ne fait que péter plus haut que son cul et se vautre dans la caricature.
