Just can't give anything a 5 eh? I personally give it a 5/5 and I haven't even gotten the full game yet.

Man, I can't stop laughing... co-op... served to perfection... what are they smoking?

Has no-one played the other Ao2's? This is not Ao2, this is a shell of a game which loses the lefty flip, the ability to scope or not, the co-op aggro/stealth overkill... This game is a shadow of Ao2... and if released under any other name would be called out as such.

Salem and Rios look like crap compared to the old them... seriously... for example Rios was a badass (but a softie too), and looked the part (and if you say "yeah but he's older", I'll say "And probably killed the guy who gave him that nose job.").

This game is NOT Army of TWO, it's a shell... you can claim "co-op served to perfection"... but all I'll say is I preferred my bots in Gears of War Judgment to the one in this.

Play Army of TWO: The 40th Day if you don't believe me. The multiplayer SUCKS, that is true... but I played through the campaign with people and solo I don't know how many times. It was how I expected Ao2 here would be... it is not... Ao2 here is bland, attempting to gain more fans from games such as Call of Duty, and Battlefield...

FINAL WORD;
You want Ao2, go buy The 40th Day

Most of what you wrote I do not agree with, but the look of Salem and Rios was fucked up.
Rios looked like a wimp this time around, and Salem just didn't work for me.
I'm glad we got to play as Alpha and Bravo because how Rios looked would have pissed me off bigtime. Loved playing as Rios in the previous AoT...
They should have given A and B better names though

Gameplay is what matters, and the game was fun as hell
7/10 if you ask me, and I hated the lack of story and still I had a great time. Started an Insane run, but gonna let the game get some rest and finish it in the next weeks. Bioshock needs some love too

Maybe you should look at yourselves... I'm a troll for stating that the game loses out most of its charm in gameplay in favour of something more generic.

Think about the game if you remove the AI bot or your team partner, how would most of the game actually change? No revives, and no waiting on breaching. Overall, not much... in comparison the old army of two's it'd be a completely different game.

In old Army of Two there was visual hint when in high-aggro and low-aggro, there was tough decisions to make and bounty-contracts to complete. These elements wasn't in new game, what was biggest setback in my opinion. Killing fast and killing more just isn't enough to be main feature, and levels could be more interesting than narrow tunnels through warehouses and slums.

If you liked old Army a lot, maybe its just best to pass this one and remember series as it was, in old good times. For anyone else, this is generic arcade shooter, even so great fun to play with friend.

I thought it was the worst one out of the three games. After playing it through I didn't want to play halfway through the game, but the achievement whore in me is pushing me through right now.

This is by far the worst ao2 ever! A 90? Are they serious? I think they got some EA kickbacks for that review. Stop calling people trolls for stating the truth, fact is you guys are probably fanbois

I support this as well. It really was just a skin of Ao2, and the gameplay seems rather simplistic now. I just finished it, and what an awful ending. Totally cheesy and I saw it coming from the beginning, especially your "enemy". I'm pretty dissappointed myself.

Edit: I think the achievement title "Look mom, I made it!" speaks for itself.

I've got to be honest, the fact you think this game is better than Bioshock Infinite renders your opinion null and void. Truth bomb.

This game is dire compared to its two predecessors never mind anything else.

I agree with you. It deserves a way higher score. I actually like this better than the 40th day. And it's way cooler to see more than just Rios and Salem, you've got other characters too who work with them, which makes it way better during the story.

And they are such interesting characters with lots to say... BOOM BOOM. Dead. I thought it would be interesting to be a whole organization, until every one you meet gets killed 20 seconds later. T.W.O. could've been cool, but they weren't truly in the game. Just a dynamic duo killing everything in sight.

Duuuuuuude, did you play it for more than 10 minutes? lol. It was one of the better co op games I have played in quite a while. Felt like a decent action movie but in video game format. I really liked the first Ao2, 2nd one was ok but I got the most enjoyment out of this one. Not exactly enough content there to keep me playing for more than 2 playthrough's but aside from that it was a pretty solid co op game.

This isn't a co-op game. You can have two people playing but the co-op aspects have been spectacularly nerfed to the point where you may as well just stand side by side and blast everything in sight.

The original AO2 and games like Gears actually require some teamwork, this game just requires that you spray an inordinate amount of bullets at enemies. Half the time I didn't even use cover - until I realised there was an achievement for it.

People expect too much out of every game they play. I know it has it's issues but that score was just ridiculous. It seems like it was rated low just because it wasn't the reviewers preferred type of game. That would be like me rating bioshock infinite a 55 out of 100 just because I dislike Bioshock. But I'd still rate it higher and make it a point to point out the good things about it. Army of Two TDC while it was to short, and had minor issues it was still overall a really fun, mindless co op shooter. I just don't agree with the review.

It had split screen co op. It's only pay to play if you don't buy the game. And that's not their fault you're a cheap bastard. They wanted to make a fun co op shooter, they made a fun co op shooter. Games don't need half the crap people rate them on to be good. It didn't need some epic story, or top notch voice overs, all it had to do is be fun and it was.

Those "entitlements" are definitely going to come into play with the next Xbox if the rumors are true that every game on the system is only playable on one system. Devs are going to have to step up in terms of quality for their games if they expect people to buy them, and people are going to expect more from the developers because of this. I know for certain that I won't be playing as many games on that system than the 360 based on this "rumor". The game better be pretty damn special for me to spend the $70 they are rumored to cost.

I've only played the demo of this game, and while I've played the other two, this one just seemed meh to me. Maybe it's because it's been so long since I've played an AoT game that I just wasn't used to it, or maybe it's because the demo didn't have some of the features of the full game. Reading what everyone else has said makes the game look more like a Doom or Quake (where the object is, surprise, kill everything then finish the level) than a faux-tactical co-op shooter like the previous two. I played the demo with a friend and it was like we were playing a Lego game split-screen; he was doing his thing and I was doing mine. No teamwork whatsoever. I expect a co-op game to have the players work together towards a mutual goal (like the two previous games and Gears as someone pointed out above). Sure you can get Aggro and have your teammate sneak around for stealth kills, but what else can they do together? If they're going to tout this as a co-op game, then make it a co-op game, not just two players on the screen at once. There's a difference, and it's a shame that developers are leaning more towards this type of "co-op".

Cheap? Try smart consumer. This game isn't worth $40 new. No multiplayer at all. Kid one day when you will grow up you will realize that you need to budget your money, well that is if you ever get off your moms tit.

Split screen coop.....OOOOOH WHAT A FUCKING ACHIEVEMENT! HOW KIND OF THEM!

I like when internet kids call people kid, amusing to no end. Game doesn't have everything YOU want it to have doesn't mean it's not worth the price to everyone else. Your entitlement bs destroys your entire argument once more.
Don't whine about splitscreen, it's nobodies fault but your own that you don't have friends in real life to play with.

I'm calling you a kid because you have the mindset of one. For the record you are considering coop multiplayer? That's not multiplayer. And the game doesn't even have what the second one did, its a striped down version ....bare bones if you will.
Friends....I don't have friends....you can say that but me calling you a kid is an issue? Just proves I'm right, you ARE a kid, kid.

when the 40th day makes your game look like shit, then you know you have made a bad game.

I too find this the worst of three.

The reason I love Army of TWO, is the idea of "army of two", which is clearly lacking here.
All the tactics I used to use is not here.
I cannot tell Bravo to advance and I snipe from behind, because he will always advance.
I cannot tell Bravo to stay put while I take on the Aggro to trigger a stealth overkill for him, because when I spray bullet he sprays more.
I can hardly tell Bravo to take the Aggro and I approach from behind, because somehow the enemies always spot me even if I don't shoot at all.
I cannot tell whether I take Aggro or Bravo does because there is no Aggro meter and the TWO vision that is supposed to tell Aggro barely works.
I cannot use stealth overkill anymore which I consider a very good presentation of flanking.
I cannot specify Bravo to do actions Aggro-ly or normally because there are not two-level commands(red or blue).
I cannot have the enjoyable co-op sniping and back-to-back massacre anymore which I consider a very good presentation of army of two.
I do not have moral choices to make and I do not have multiple ending to enjoy.
I do not have ultimate evil bad guys to take on. Instead I have got a twisted friend that is so different from who I used to know to take on.

The only things I can do are,
Telling Bravo to shoot from his current position or besides me,
Telling Bravo to breach a door which does not have anyone on the other side,
Telling Bravo to co-op breach a door with me,
Occasionally telling Bravo to pick up a shield or use a MMG/MGL,
Choosing between two actions and let Bravo does the other.

Aggro is the core of Army of Two.
But I don't even feel like Aggro exisits.
I tell Bravo to take Aggro, he will take it for 2 seconds.
I remember the time when I was told,
"If your partner keeps shooting, enemies will focus on him. You will become invisible and you can flank the enemies. This is called the Aggro."
Well, this is NOT present in this game.
Even the overkill is no longer what it was meant to be.
It is nothing more than a quick boost in this game.

I hope I explain myself clear and well enough.

I enjoyed the game, but it is not AO2. And it is not what I expected.
I would not give it a score, but this clearly ruined the title "Army of TWO".
If it puts on a name like "The Devil's Cartel" without Army of TWO, it may well be a good shooter.
Now it is just a game with the shell or shadow of AO2, like previously said by others.
