First off, I have played the two prequels to this game: Army of Two and AOT 40th Day. They were decent action games, but more for a boring saturday night, not really a home-run action game like Battlefield: Bad Company or Uncharted: Drake's Fortune. While the third entry in the franchise is not up to that level yet, it is definitely headed in the right direction. Gone is the unreal engine, here is the frostbite engine (that allowed destructible environments in the 2011 FPS Battlefield 3). Also gone are the "back-to-back" tactics, as well as the ambidextrous shooting abilities of Salem and Rios of the past titles. While the absence of the two aforementioned abilities is a downer of sorts, there are new tactics and features in Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel.
From "TWO" vision, which is sorta like a battlefield version of Batman's bat-vision (see Arkham games) to the Overkill mode, which is comparable to the Rage mode from the last-gen game "Scarface: The World is Yours". Basically, your operator is impervious to damage when this is activated, has unlimited ammo, and can literally blow his enemies apart.Read more ›
It has kind of a surprise finale which I found impressive. Never saw it coming. The selection of weapons is awesome. Some of them are quirky so try them all, especially the high end models. Have been through it a couple more times solo and while it's not my favorite game, it is quite enjoyable, especially if you have a partner to yell at for screwing up while you're playing…… ;-) Enjoy the game…!
But first, a little caveat - Army of Two: The 40th Day was my only foray into the series before excitedly receiving the Devil's Cartel (you can refer to my review for the 40th Day to see why I liked it). Now that I've beaten the game on Hard and spent a good 5 hours with my 40th Day partner, I feel like I can give some insight into this game.
For better or worse, the game feels very different from the 40th Day. Gone are the un-skippable cut scenes, the seemingly endless supply of long load times and bad graphics.
Gone too are the details that made the 40th Day really great: necessity for team-work in order to proceed through the hardest difficulty, the ability to switch your weapon on the fly, enemies that had character, and the "little things" (like punch / fist bumps, back-to-back, human shields, mock surrender, switching the camera sides, etc.) that made the game worth replaying for the 100th hour.
My buddy and I agreed on a couple of things about the game:
1. Almost closer to playing Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier rather than the 40th Day
2. Feels like two people playing a single-player game at the same time rather than two people playing as part of a team
3 stars for a disappointing follow-up to a great co-op driven game.
