Army of Two: The 40th Day
Really Fun Third person Shooter
I really had an enjoyable experiance playing through this game. The two main Character, Rios and Salem, are intesting and the world around them is very polished and good looking. One of my favorite features of the game is the awesome weapon customization. You can change a lot of things such as the barrel, the suppressor, the style, and more. It is also a great coop game. I would recommend this to all hardcore gamers.
Fun Co-op, but it is too short!
Me and my friend are on a mission this summer to play lots and lots of co op games together since I might not be around again for a while. Army of Two: The 40th day was our first pick up. This game is a GREAT 2 player co-op game and requires working together to an extent that a lot of games don't require. There are a lot of different scenarios and locations in which fighting occurs and fights seem fairly unique and each has its own strategies you need to overcome.
My problems with the game is the floppy story. I care about story a lot and this one was not really fully fledged and didn't have a lot of substance, it was just kind of there. Also, I wanted the campaign to be a little longer then it was. I was also unimpressed with the competitive multiplayer (plus there aren't too many people playing it anymore.) Ultimately, after finishing it we didn't feel like playing it again.
However, despite these couple faults this is a MUST HAVE for people looking for a solid Co-op game.
~Keep gaming my friends~
I remember playing the origional AO2 back when it first came out. It was a decently entertaining romp through a riddiculous world filled with wise cracking masked frat boys and annoying AI enemies. Even with all the problems, I had found a small amount of enjoyment to be found so I was a litte exited to try TFD because of all the suposed upgrades that EA talked about. What we are left with is more of the same. AO2 TFD will not dissapoint if you are a massive fan of the original. However, if you are new to the series or you werent a fan of the first, this one won't do much for you. The gameplay is semi entertaining, although repetitive. Played in the third person you will gun through hordes of enemies to accomplish your goal. What is your goal. This is where the game dissapoints, basically the story is escape the city, why.....who knows. Plus, its short, i beat it in one sitting.The only thing i really liked about the game was the customizable guns, but they arent enough to make this game anything more than a rental.
Great co-op game
Ok alot of the reviews people are writing say the game is either good or bad but they dont explaine why. I personally think this game was very good. I love co-op games and this game is specificly designed around co-op game play. If you like 3rd person shooters and you like to play with your friends then this is a great game to get. Now the only downside to the game is it could have been longer. I got the game and beat it in a day. If you get the game and beat it you can always go back and beat it on another difficulty. Also in the game there are parts were you and your partner have to make choices that affect the outcome of your gameplay. Based on the choices you make effect how the story unfolds so like i said before if you beat it once play it again and choose a differnt choice than you did before and check out the difference in the storyline, I would recommend this game to anyone who likes 3rd person shooters, co-op gameplay, and a great storyline.
I love it, and you might too
If your a fan of shooters that are/has -Third person -Awesome characters -Deadly enemies -Good controls -Co-op -Decent Storyline -Great Weapon Customization This is a game for you. As continuing from the first game; you are hired guns that get a job in shanghai. Then all hell breaks loose. So Rios and Salem (main characters) together have to survive. This game offers a lot. Changing and modifying your guns (which there are a lot of guns to choose from), Being able to customize your mask for single-player and multiplayer (which multiplayer is kinda bad, but playable) are awesome. Also Co-op is fun and can be very tactical if you have a friend to play with, or with someone randomly online. I would highly suggest to play the campaign with a friend, split-screen or online cause the AI in this game is kinda stupid. The cast is pretty small but very lively. Rios and Salem are the most incredible characters i've ever played as. I do believe the story in the first one was a little better, but this one doesn't disappoint. If you like cooperative mind-blowing, action packed games i would highly recommend you to get this one.
The game is alright, it could have been much better. In this sequel to the hit third-person teamwork-based shooter. Army of Two: The 40th Day reunites Salem and Rios as they're forced to survive in a city under siege. The sequel includes more co-op moves for players to use at any time, which will allow for completely different strategies and options in battle, adding up to a bigger, more organic and immersive co-op experience. The story of The 40th Day places Salem and Rios in the middle of Shanghai, China, as a disaster of epic proportions strikes the city. While they happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, they are the right men to react to the chaos. As they fight their way through ruined districts of the city, they discover more and more catastrophes are being orchestrated to devastate Shanghai piece by piece. It's up two Salem and Rios to uncover the secret of the 40th Day and survive the chaos. It's a fun game to try.
This game deserves much more credit
I will start by saying that overall I thought the first one was better but not in all ways. I am a big fan of this game but i am not going to just give everything I am a fan of a 10 like many people here do. Rarely does a game ever deserve a 10 and truthfully I have only ever given one. The storyline was better in part 1 no doubt. I think the weapons and buying of weapons was much better in the first but I really liked all the choice making and seeing the result of that choice no matter how bad. This is a great game and anyone who says otherwise is probably just stuck on some other game and never gave it a chance. I will say it felt like the campaign was rather short. I hope for part 3 they take the best of part 1 and make it better while adding some of part 2. Make sure you check this game out, it's a winner.
What a joke!
Im not sure about anyone else but this game looks like it could have been for the original xbox. I played the demo, first off you couldn't play by yourself, probably because they didn't fix the terrible teammate AI. I didn't have anyone one to play with at home so I went online, it took about 10 minutes to find someone(nice servers, ha). Finally I get in a match and we start playing, I am introduced to to crappiest looking playstation 1 cutscene. Then there is an ingame cutscene, the character models look worse than in the first game, I can seen the polygon points sticking out under the horribly designed texture map. All the guns look like they are made of stone and don't even sound close to realistic. I hope that everyone working on this game is embarrased when nobody wants this game because it sucks. I was really hoping this game would be awesome because i was waiting for at least a year for this then it turns out is totally sucked before even came out.
The first army of two was a pretty good game. When i heard about a sequel coming out I thought the game would be amazing. I played the demo and as I always assume the demo never does the real game any justice. When it came out I picked up my copy and played it non-stop for about 5-6 hours. I first realized that a major thing about the game is that it worked very much like gears of war. You run to an object, hide behind it for the longest time and then move to another one further up. I wasn't a big fan of that but it was still a fun game. Next was the weapon customization. I thought it would be cool to finally put something different on my gun either than flat out upgrades... too bad there was a "best" attachment for most guns. Running through the game I barely used my own gun because i always ran out of ammo even when i was headshot hunting. I would always get low ammo drops and more cash drops. It is a good game, I just didn't think it was the greatest.
Definetly worth buying
So the first Army of Two brought new meaning to the phrases teamwork and co-op being possibly the best co-op game ever. The 40th Day lives up to that reputation and adds in a few new and awesome features such as weapon customization where you can change each part of your guns and how they look except for the pistol which only has suppressors and decals. Also, if you sign up with EA.com and link your GT/PlayStation ID to your EA profile, you can create and wear your own mask/armor. This game may only have a few levels but each level takes at least 20-30 minutes to complete and the enemies aren't complete pushovers. Another new feature (as far as I can tell) is you can make moral decisions regarding capturing enemies and whether or not to save civilians. The graphics (at times) don't look too good but that still doesn't take away from the fun this game offers to players. Overall, if you liked the first Army of Two game then you need to buy this one.
