Best played with Two.
28 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I didn't have as high of expectation as some people when it came to Army of Two. I seen it online a few times read about how cool the weapon customization was. That was pretty much it. Then after I got my PS3 in January of this year my cousin wanted me to get it. So after watching a few videos of it and talking it over I caved and picked it up along with a controller. The game for me cost $20. And the way I see it, that's a bargain.

So as we were playing it I really started liking it. It was really fun playing with a friend. The enemy A.I. isn't too spectacular. They'll do a few smart thing here and there but overall the lot of them are incredibly stupid. No matter what difficulty you are playing. Most enemies would do foolish things like run out in no mans land only to get gunned down.

I did like the team aspect though. Me and my cousin had to constantly rely on each other to get through an area and that was great. That's name of the game (quite literally). It was a lot of fun doing that and it seldom got old. Army of Two is best played with a friend. Playing with the A.I. is frustrating. You have to issue him orders and keep an eye on him. With two people playing it's easier to keep tabs on each other and a lot of the time have faith in the others abilities. With the AI, it's babysitting.

The story is nothing to get excited about. It has some interesting bits but for the most part is not really that important. The two heroes names are Rios and Salem. Their Army CO and PMC CO is Dalton. These two go on missions and while doing so there is a lot of story going on elsewhere. Like troop positions being compromised and a bill that would privatize the military. A couple of twists but nothing you won't see coming. The missions while long there are few. You can probably beat this thing in about 6 hours or less.

There is even a feature called mid-mission shopping. No lie. The game asks you if you want to shop right in the middle of mission. Even sometimes while your being shot at. Just a complete head scratcher there.

The guns were a letdown for me. They were making this out to be a feature that had tons of customizations. Which is somewhat false. Like say for some guns they had 3 different barrels to choose from, some had just 2, or 1. Army of Two even had firearms with no customizations at all. OK, maybe they had the "pimped" one which fell short too. You couldn't choose to pimp your gun the way you wanted to. Some guns were silver, others platinum or gold. It would have been nice if you could have picked the one you wanted. Another problem was that if you wanted barrel number 3 for your main machine gun you are going to have to buy number 1 and 2 just to unlock the third.

Army of Two is a solid game. Nothing uber spectacular about it and nothing too god awful. If you paid twenty for it bring in a friend and have a blast. It's mindless fun.
