Ok, I purchased this game through the Playstation Store as a Day 1 Digital Download, and read the reviews beforehand on amazon, just to get a feel for whether the full game was different from the demo I downloaded a couple of weeks ago. From reading the reviews, I realized one thing - practically all the reviews for this product were either written by twelve-year olds that are good at this game, or geeky fourteen-year olds that are not. So, to assist you, the possible purchaser of this title, I will attempt to make this review as informative and objective as possible, without giving away any spoilers.

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.

The game seemed monotonous at first. Repetitive…. After getting through the first few missions, back on the shelf it went. It stayed there until a buddy of mine came over and wanted to try playing partners. The game got a whole lot better as it went along. Playing partners is great if you don't kill each other in the process…. We got through the whole game and are still friends….. :-)

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…!

I was skeptical about buying this game because I had read some early reviews and I could tell from the demo that it didn't have some of the 'magic' that the 40th Day had. The 40th Day is one of my favorite third-person shooters so I had high expectations for the Devil's Cartel, maybe too high. After finding it at a bargain price, I went ahead and took the plunge. Overall, the 40th Day, by far, remains my favorite of the series but the Devil's Cartel was better than I thought it would be from reading those bad reviews. I had played through the first game quickly and just as quickly sold it but this one is a keeper. The shooting and controls (except the overbearing cover system) are managed well and the armory has lots of options. I didn't like hearing that Salem and Rios weren't the main characters but they're still in the game and fit into the story well enough for me to have no major complaints. Although I think Alpha and Bravo are stupid and generic names, the characters aren't as disappointing. I actually enjoyed playing them as much as Salem and Rios. My only major complaint is the cover system. I just don't like being forced to use it so much but I guess some people do. I have the same complaint about the Uncharted games. Popping in and out of cover shouldn't be such a hassle all the time. So, I guess if you were expecting the 41st Day, this isn't it, but it's still a good addition to the series and I hope to see it continue on the PS4.

Since others have reviewed this game in-depth, I'll try to keep this short.
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.
