Coop's back!

And you don't even need friends to experience it! How awesome it that?! . . . .

Right. So, anyway. I've only played through some of the campaign in Solo mode, but that's good enough at the moment. I can tell you already that this game is far more polished than its predecessor, with less "on-rails" movement, more dependability on your partner, better graphics, more coop actions and, of course, awesome customizations of a HUGE arsenal of weaponry.

You can do more than slap on one or two accessories and a ridiculous shield. The shield returns, but also MANY different barrels, silencers (soda can silencer, lol), muzzles, enhancers, scopes, cartridges, bayonets, shotgun/grenade launcher add-ons, and much much more. They added new skins for weapons, from arctic all the way to the favorable "pimped". You can even make your grenades gold and diamond encrusted! It's tons of fun.

Aside from that the gameplay is solid. Feels more realistic (aside from some occasional clipping, it's forgivable). Firefights are much more exciting. Pretty much everything from the first game was improved on.

A definite must have for Coop fanatics and third person/shooter lovers in general. Grab a friend and have some fun. A definite buy!

I have played this game with a friend of mine a few times through. We gold plate our guns for laughs and run around to watch the basque in the firelight.

I will say that the coop you find in this game is rather awesome...especially considering that it seem coop is dying off. (RIP) :(

This game threw me for a loop when it introduced 2 characters that use a basis of coop play with or without a second player. This provides alot of enjoyment and control over the battlefield. I was also really happy to see that if you do something stupid (like hug a guy with a grenade launcher) you don't immediately die giving your partner a chance to save you. There were alot of great features in this game in my opinion, but there is one thing that made me a bit sad... it wasn't long enough. I felt the urge to rush out and rent the first game and liked that one almost as much.

I am throwing out a plea to the creators...make another one with a longer game span! And please remember to keep the car door as a shield!

I just finished this game and all I have to say is that it was a major improvement over the original. Where the original lacked (and it lacked alot) the 40th day made up for in a big way. The aiming was near perfect, the weapon upgrade system was revamped and we were even given choices to make moral/immoral decisions which gave you a little more control over the decisions you made as a team. All in all EA really seemed to listen to their audience and made a real gem here. Let's hope that if there is a 3rd game, which the ending seems to hint at a sequel than the 3rd time will be the charm and be even better. I highly reccommend this one. Nice job EA!!
