"Solid, Enjoyable shooter"
4 stars"

Looking at this game its quite obvious that its aimed for playing with a human companion this both appealed to me and didnt appeal to me personally, On one hand I love co-op games where you can strategies with your buddy to reach a common goal, but on the other hand the idea of not being able to just pick up and play and having to organize when your gonna play off another persons schedule put me off a little resulting in me having to pay to babysit an AI.

Regardless i decided to risk it because a friend of mine had recently bought it. When i fired it up for the first time i couldn't get find a teammate on my friends list and didn't like the idea of a public game so i decided id just risk teaming up with the AI.

Once I got in game and past the training video which reminded me i can die in combat I was pleasantly surprised to find that the AI was easily directed and for once useful. You have 3 commands to control them Regroup(Left D-Pad), Advance (Up D-Pad) and Hold(Right D-Pad). Pressing either on of these will result in the chosen command being highlight in blue and double tapping will result in it turning red(Blue being in a normal/stealthy manner red being in an aggressive manner) so far Ive found it to work almost flawlessly.

I found the combat solid, Although clumsy at times the aiming is good. The cover system works slightly different to other shooters in where you just run behind cover and your character reacts to whatever you want to do this allows you to bounce around effectively going in and out of cover.

lastly Possibly a feature appealing to a lot of people is the ability to purchase, Mod and choose your own weaponry. You gain money filling certain objectives(Some being necessary, others you have to find certain things or choose to do them) want a high tech golden plated AK47 but risk drawing attention to yourself? or do you before a more traditional low-key look? its your choice. You have three weapons slots Primary(Your main weapon tends to be a shotgun or assault rifle) Secondary(Pistol or SMG) and Special(Sniper or RPG).

Personally i found this game to be great fun even without a fellow human to play with(not all people have Xbox live so this is essential) certainly a must have for gun nuts and fans of shooters.

"Addictive "
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Much like Call of Duty, but more like a team of two. Awesome upgradable weapons / armour plus you can buy some pretty cool masks. Great game to play for hours.

"Best co-op ever made"
5 stars"

Love the game upgrades for every gun and for the two main players.

Great fun to play co-op me and my mate had so much fun clocking this game it is unfortunately quite short thats why i am giving it four stars but still very fun.

Would play over and over again.

"Gears of war clone"
3 stars"

Army of two is a co-op 3rd person shooter with similar game-play elements to gears of war, The graphics were good despite a couple of in-game glitches. The game-play was a complete gears of war clone (which is a good thing if you like gears of war.) Your partner A.I isn't all hes cracked up to be, and the level design was poor.The whole game was short and only latest around 6 hours. Despite everything wrong with this game its not that bad, Its got some cool add ons with the whole Co-op theme, And when playing another person its not to bad. So if your into gears of war clones, or just cant wait for gears of war 3, pick this one up (Just make sure you have a friend to play with.)

Description

Today, the United States is awarding an unprecedented number of contracts to Private Military Corporations (PMC) in an effort to maintain its presence worldwide. Since the Vietnam War, this number has increase ten fold and is only rising. As the clear cut flow of the chain of command blurs and the military responsibilities of a nation slipping out of its own control, it is getting hard to tell who really holds the power.

As ex-Army Rangers now turned contractors for a PMC, ARMY OF TWO challenges you to fight along side your team-mate on missions developing and using the combined skills necessary to become the deadliest TWO man military outfit. Whether with a live player or ARMY OF TWO’s unique partner AI, ARMY OF TWO delivers a revolutionary new way to play an action shooter.

From TWO man sniping to parachuting, players will experience action-packed scenarios where they will have to use their wit, strength and an arsenal of shared customizable weapons to successfully defeat their enemies and complete the mission at hand.

On or offline, players can seamlessly transition from AI to a live partner as they fight their way through war, turmoil and a conspiracy so vast it threatens the entire world. When one man is not enough, it’s going to take an army of two to save us.

Features:
  • Co-op is no longer a mode, it’s the game. Players must undertake TWO man missions using TWO man strategies and tactics to ultimately create a TWO man advantage that no enemy can withstand.
  • ARMY OF TWO delivers intelligent partner AI (PAI) that will interact, adapt, collaborate and learn from their human partner. The PAI will also react and adjust to the gamer’s ability and how they play the game by taking the lead or following, driving strategy or taking orders. It is the dream of the human machine.
  • Customise and upgrade dozens of deadly weapons and share them with your partner off or online.
  • EA’s Montreal game studio is working to deliver realistic character and environmental effects including fluid dynamics that showcase an open-ocean water-wave simulation as well as physics based animations.
  • ARMY OF TWO will captivate gamers with a politically charged storyline, centering on the impact and ethical issues of Private Military Corporations.
  • ARMY OF TWO redefines TWO MAN online gameplay with players seamlessly moving from PAI to live players as they make their way through the game.
