I own Army of Two, and my wife and I loved this game. 40th day, started out as good as AoT, but when the game ended, my wife and I were suprised how short the game actually was. It reminded me of the ODST game, very short and wishing the creaters would have held out for a longer game. Another thing we noticed was the casual, normal, and contractor levels, were not that much different, you would expect the levels to be alot harder as you advance from casual to contractor. I think EA should really put more effort into sequel games, if ther going to advertise how great the new game is going to be, if the game is going to be this short, at least price the game at a lower cost, which will make the gamer satisfied he or she at least got what they paid for. i would hesitate on recommending this game for purchase, but for renting through gamefly," GO FOR IT".

An overall entertaining game to play, especially if you're into shooters.
There's some small things that stick out in the game to me, such as the fact that the game seems short, the lack of a sound/audio control option (seems like the voiceovers are too quiet and the music is loud).
Overall though the ability to customize guns is fun, definitely worth a try/rent.
Assuming that you played the first AOT you know exactly what to expect. It's more of the same from the first just more over the top and for whatever reason more annoying as well.
I liked the first one quite a bit. This time around however I found the difficulty was ramped up. This became troublesome as I was playing it with my wife local split screen and bleeding out on casual got old quick. Some of that of course was due to the congested areas used for cover being harder to see on split screen but still and all...As reported in many gamer mags there is basically no story past the fact that you are in a city being blown to heck and trying to get out.
It was really frustrating to spend 10 minutes setting up your guns and buying new equipment to walk 50 paces and be gunnned down just to have to restart with none of that cool gear saved
Over all the game looks great, custamization of weapons is cool, and co-op is definitely a bonus.
However the lack of storyline, repetitive move in shoot move out mechanics, and the fact that the agro system is broken and you have to shoot from a distance with special weapons that always run out of ammo may turn some away.
If you're looking for a fairly entertaining rental to blow through in a couple of days pick it up and give it a try. Unless of course you're worrying about gamer points. Dont bother I got less than 300 on one playthrough on casual and it isn't worth your frustration if your a booster.
