Army of Two: The 40th Day
A lot of killing and shooting, my type of game!!!
This game is sick awesome and has beast guns and graphics this 100 times better then the first one. this game is EPIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Maddingly addictive co-op
Is this the slickest game around? No. But it's really hard to stop playing in co-op mode! If you want a game that you can play with a partner, then this is the game for you. It's a must to play as a team and have a tactical plan. You can't stray too far from each other, as you'll inevitably need the healing touch of your teammate. Weapons wise, it's nice to always have your full complement of weapons available if you need them. So far, I haven't lost any weapons, just because we've started a new scenario. It's great to have that sniper rifle available when you have the urge to blow a bad guys head off. I love to snipe! Some scenarios can be really challenging, yet others, you can just breeze through. Sometimes checkpoints are too far apart and sometimes they appear too close together. But behaviorally speaking, this is how the addiction to the game is reinforced. You just don't want to quit ,when the going gets tough. True, the cutscenes can be irritating, as there is no apparent way to skip them when you have to start a scenario over. Also, your weapon upgrades are not saved if you don't make it to the next checkpoint. This can be a waste of time, having to keep upgrading the same things, over and over again. It would be nice to have a save option, so you don't have to keep playing the same scenes over from the beginning of a checkpoint. Overall, if your're looking for a game to play, while sharing the couch with a friend, then I would definitely recommend this game.
Army of Two: 40th Day (nothing needs to be special
I have read several people's replies to this game and being a gamer who's not really used to the series, I'm really impressed with the game. Sure the graphics of the game aren't as good as most games, and certainly the controls are a lot difficult, but this is a pretty decent game for one who's not really known to the series. I really loved how you could completely customize your gun, from the silencer to the barrel, from the clip to the scope, it's pretty cool. And I also really liked how both players could have their own difficulty, so that one player would be normal and one player would be casual. That really impressed me. However, like i said, the controls are extremely hard and the shooting i think is messed up a little bit. Like when I was playing the demo and I was using the sniper, when I shot it it had a little bit of a lag. And when I restarted the game, it still had the lag, which upset me the most. But overall, the looks impressive and can't wait to get it.
This game I picked it up on sale. Thought for the price I can always trade it in later for something better. How wrong was I? This is a really good game. Customizing the weapons is pretty cool. I love it.
Good Game but unpolished
Army of Two: The 40th Day does some things right, and others poorly. ---PROS--- Fun gameplay, characters & environments have a lot of detail, has offline/online 2-player co-op, tons of customization, great variety in weaponry, and makes your partner actually feel like a partner. ---Cons--- Cutscenes and explosions can look really ugly at times, story ranges from believable to stupidly impossible, about a 5 hour campaign, and unskippable cutscenes that happen after a checkpoint so when you die you wait a full minute for the game to reload and then re-watch the cutscene again (its the most annoying part of the game). ---My Advice--- Rent it. Its a short-lived experience. Personally, Resident Evil 5 is a better choice for a good shooter with co-op.
it ko opinion of the game, not your opinion of someone else's opinion. Reviews containing profanity, obscenities, or vulgarities will not be posted. A good rule of thumb is, if you think anyone might be offended, try to say it another way. Comments about publishers, developers or platforms will not be posted.

Do not use HTML tags. Do not include phone numbers, addresses, URLs, or other contact information. Do not include product availability, pricing, or alternative ordering information. specific features. For example, for a game you could write paragraphs describing the graphics, sound, interface or storyline. For an accessory you could write paragraphs on styling, functionality and durability. Always end with a summary paragraph to wrap up your thoughts.
This game is great!There are alot of guns and a ton of customization.They have barrels you can change,scopes,camos,shields,grenade launchers,ect.Also its quite long.There are 7chapters and each chapter takes about 45min-1hour to beat so about 7hours combined to beat the game.That the same amount as cod so don't complain.They also have online so thats cool.The graphics are good as well.A must buy for the money!
A little too short
Okay, I got this game a while back, almost a year ago, when I first got my PS3, and when I started playing it, the storyline kind of kept me glued to the game for a while. But anyway, campaign is awesome, but it didn't last long at all. It took me about 4 hours to finish the game completley. So yeah, if you don't like short games, don't get this one. :D
My Favorite Game
Don't listen to all of the bad reviews for this game, too many people criticize a game without looking at the true aspects of it. This game is AMAZING. It's my new favorite game. The storyline isn't too short at all, it's full of great choices and fun gameplay. I love being able to take a person hostage and making his lower officers surrender. You can even play rock paper scissors with your partner, which is hilarious. The online gaming is great as well. You can rank up and unlock new masks for online usage. I still haven't completed campaign, but I've been playing it for quite a while now. It's not too short, but not extremely long, and it's addictive enough to keep you playing for hours on end. My favorite part of the game is the gun customization, it's truly AMAZING. There are hundreds of parts for your guns owned, and there are so many guns to buy and choose from. And once you use the guns, it's just that much more fun. Overall this is the best game I've ever played. It's also fun to choose between so many masks and creating masks and armor. I'd have to say it's better than Modern Warfare 2 in my opinion, it's just much more addictive to play. Best game ever.
Waoo..... what a let down..... :(
well, i bought this game actually thinking it was gona be better than the first.....well, i think that the first part was actually much better than this one in every way, the story line was more enjoyable than the one on 40th day. never the less the game is good in a few things, but it couldve been better. the graphics is the first thing that let me down....when i first started playing i thought...what is this? I actually pop the first part of army of two in the ps3 to compare and man, the second part falls short, the first one actually feels more real, and to me thats very important. the story line in this one is comfusing and thats without mentioning that u have to really bring the volume up to hear what they are talking about cuz they talk when u r in action and u cant really hear what they say. idk, I think it could have been better. over all this one looks like a cartoon compare to the first one.
