Its a good story. I haven't finished it yet so this isn't my final rating it depends on how long the story is and its replay value. I like how some guns have scoped and others don't. The blind fire is a nice feature and its fun to play witha friend as well

The game feels like it has been downsized, and not in a good way. The game has a good combination of teamwork and senseless shooting in large areas battlefields and narrow areas. Customization of masks and guns lets you leave your mark. Gun customization has made an in between of the first game's simple upgrade system and the second's super customization. The new aggro system doesn't use on screen indicators, and instead relies on players intuition to tell who is being the biggest threat. Money is now earned on how well you do a mission and increases for special flanking moves. Add on a cover destruction system coupled with a new overkill boost that litterely lets you overkill and you get a summary of the pros of this game.
The cons... well they are something I thought I would never see in an Army of Two game.
First, the story is while entertaining with new players, it's rather messed up for fans of the prior games. What you should know is that anything you have done in the prior games wont effect this one. The story ends with a lot loose ends, but not in a good way. The game disregards everything that happens in the earlier games and seems to create these new themes that never existed.
Salem was never as heartless as the game makes him to be, and I don't ever recall a thing between him and Alice.
The game is also short, even though the campaign is technically long, and that crazy system is due to the game having only the campaign to play. No multiplayer, no bonus modes, no exploration, just replays and a shooting spree mission. I don't know if EA plans to add more to the game later on, but right now lasting appeal is not a strong point for this game.
Lastly, all stealth is gone. Remember how you could clear half or a whole room of enemies before grabbing a human sheild and wasting away baddies with a minigun. Well now you can't do any of those I just mentioned, along with makeshift sheilds.

This game is nice one of my favorite this year. I feel that if you like 2 player game have a buddy over and go at it well this is the game. Reminds me of when people invited there friends over to play games and not just online. Almost forgot due the the world of internet, how much fun it was to have your friend right next to you. I say this get a friend, girlfriend whatever and just kill some cartel.Graphics are nice, Gameply is nice reminds me of why i started playing games in the first place. Get this one its good.
