Rated 10 out of 10 by Lemini Amazing!
I had heard a lot of bad things about this game and was wary to try it, since I love the first two games. This game was absolutely great. I play these co-ops with my husband and we just loved it. The graphics were beautiful, the songs were cool, and I very much enjoyed the story. The AI enemies were smart and did not just stay in one spot. There were very many details I would criticize. I love this game and it has very much earned its spot on my game shelf.
Rated 8 out of 10 by iNPD A good addition to a great series
Iv'e been with AoT since the first game, and going in to this, I was honestly a little skeptical. But most of my concerns were almost immediately put to rest. The gameplay has been improved from the first two games as well as the A.I., which was a big issue people seemed to have with the 40th Day. The voice acting is not great, but not bad either, some actors just seem much better than others. The Co-Op aspect has been improved in the areas where it was needed, which include split paths throughout levels which require teamwork to complete objectives. The story is also very interesting and engaging while bringing back and referencing characters from the past two games. The amount of customization of your character and weapons is overwhelming. Overall, this is an experience worth your hard earned money and a real treat for series fans as well as newcomers.
Rated 9 out of 10 by darkheartx100 Great co-op experience.
I am a long time fan of the Army of Two series. My brother and I have always played these games together because they are designed with co-op in mind. The 40th Day was a bit of a let down for me being that there was no un-lockable difficulty and the campaign was relatively short. The Devil's Cartel however delivered on both fronts I felt it needed to with: a much longer campaign and an un-lockable difficulty; which, shoots the replay value up another 8-10 hours or so. I felt that the story went in an interesting direction but overall I was pleased with it. The gameplay itself was great: lots of destructible cover, the agro system was improved on, and the emphasis on working with your partner was definitely there. Running on the Frostbite 2 engine the graphics were good and there was a lot of stuff to blow up (which was very satisfying in overkill). I do mark the lasting appeal down as there is no competitive multiplayer: the focus was on the campaign and making a great co-op experience which I believe they have done. That being said: if you're looking for a game to play with your friend or sibling-- Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel has provided a great co-op experience for you to enjoy.
Rated 10 out of 10 by dEAD666TH all in one word summed up, amazing
the campaign is just amazing, the game all around is so great. me and my friend jaret beat 95% of the campaign in 7 straight hours but it was well worth it.there are many gun options to choose from as well as attachments and tactical armor and even amazing helmets, we beat most of the game in the skull candy armor and helmet. all around if you need a game to play for just an hour or a full all nighter this is the game to get!!!
Rated 9 out of 10 by cardinalfreak74 Best in series
I preordered it and then played it the first and second day of release and it was amazing. Finished on hard. Not that difficult and it is so much easier than the last one. Also, it is much different than the previous ones and could take some time to get used to. Some of the graphics need work because there are more than a few lags and glitches but it doesnt really affect the game at all. If you dont have a partner, I would suggest not to buy it until you find one because you cant communicate to the computer. It will just charge through the enemy and die. Me and my friend will soon be putting up a walkthrough of the game @AmbushGamingx. But overall, this was a great game.
Rated 7 out of 10 by Coolyo Fun with friends, not alone
For Army of Two I've always been a fan. I remember playing it with my friends at parties on the hardest difficulty, switching off constantly. I loved the second one even more with the choices that can be made and improved gameplay. This one did nothing new for the series, but maybe look cooler, but not perform better. There were plenty of glitches, riding solo is boring, and some missions were meh. The pros are if you play it co-op, and just the gameplay. The amount of blood mixed with the constant and fast paced shooting makes it fun. Get it on sale to play and finish with a friend one day.
Rated 10 out of 10 by JROD277 WOW!
This game is great. The graphics are amazing if you install hd content and the gameplay is amazing too. The campaign is much more rich than the last two games and it actually is a decent length at about 10-11 hours. I have been a huge fan of AOT franchise. Its my second favorite to COD. The only negative to the game and why I put gameplay at a 9 is because they took out partner controls! I wanted the old regroup, hold position, advance controls back. By taking this out they have taken out part of the co-op strategy of this game because now ur partner is doing whatever instead of wat u tell him. Next game put the aggro meter back in and partner controls plz!
Rated 2 out of 10 by KJet21 Horrendous
My buddy and I have been playing this franchise since the first Army of Two game and this game is just a slap in the face. Not only did they do away with some of the best aspects in this franchise (e.g. back-to-back) but the weapon customization, story, dialogue is just lousy. The characters had about as shallow of a personality as you can have and would repeat the same worn out sayings throughout the game. The only thing they did get right was the overkill mode and I mean the ONLY thing they got right. If you're a fan of the previous two like I am, don't waste your money on this debacle. Hopefully this game will be the forgotten child of the franchise.
Rated 8 out of 10 by specialblend Good game
Dunno why this series gets so much hate, I personally love it. This ones pretty good, not as good as the first to IMO. Graffics, real time destruction and menus are awesome, but in this one there's no finding all the gun parts, and there are far fewer upgrades/ guns then i remember in the first to, swapped them out for gun camo which is dumb. Also you can't customize your side arm(pistols). You can customize masks in game which is cool but with only 12 layers of graffix which IMO isn't enough. Having an entire city blown up by a private army in the 2nd one makes Mexican drug runners seem kinda lame but still a good game.
Rated 7 out of 10 by cheseweezle Good for a rental
Fun to do with a friend. I liked the weapon customization. The AI's don't really use tactics to flank, they just kind of do a sprint of faith across the battlefield and try to get behind you. Custom masks were an Awesome Idea, you can have a total of 8 customs but only can have 12 decals on the mask. But they do have a major bug/glitch were masks randomly get deleted. I never put any that violated the TOS and it just get deleted. I have had to remake a complicated mask 5 times now and I've had the game for 3 days. So just make one mask and were it or you'll get super frustrated. Just rent it.
