Army of Two 40th Day is a decent game only if you have a co-op partner to play with. The graphics of the environment are bland, boring, and pretty much all the same. The character graphics are also bland and boring and pretty much all the same...when it comes to the bad guys. Salem and Rios on the other hand are the best graphics in the game hands down. The controls are OK but they should have made a little bit more variety instead of using the A button for everything..this made it hard to heal your partner when instead your character would RUN or take cover instead of healing.
When it comes down to it the game is worth the rent but definitely not worth the buy. EA has failed to make the sequel better than the first.

This game sucked because: A - horrible controls, very choppy, hard to get in and out of cover consistently etc etc etc. B - horrible cut scenes, which you cannot skip and you watch over and over and over on any mode above normal (if you die) C - horrible check points. You die, you lose 10-15 min of game play / cut scenes. EVERY..SINGLE..TIME D - if a game is going to suck, at least reward me with some easy achievements. Multiple playthroughs to get some of these..not happening.
This game didn't suck because: A - I rented it from gamefly rather than spending 64 dollars buying it. B - Weapon upgrade system is pretty cool
There's been alot of bullcrap going around that this game really isn't that good. Well it is, it's not memorable at all; but if you like gears of war or uncharted give this a try. The first one was great and so is this one. If you liked the first one then more than likely you will like this one. They have improved alot of things since the first one buying and upgrading weapons, A.I, graphics, voice acting, they made it all better. Though something new to the 2nd one is the moral choices. Over the course of the game you will have moral choices. You will have 2 choices and depending on which one you choose it will either raise or lower your moral status. They have some hard choices to, and some of the outcomes will be surprising. Overall Elliot Salem and Tyson Rios the two protaginists in the game are much more likeable and have much more personality. If you were a fan of the first one or a fan of the gears of war series or uncharted series this is worth a look.
