You play "Army of Two" because the gameplay is innovative and because you like playing cooperatively with your friends. Sadly, because this game is so terribly, unforgivably stupid and racist, I found myself rooting for all of the main characters to die throughout. If any game developers are watching, please take note: more cooperative game play, PLEASE! But, even more important? Less insulting the intelligence of the gamers.
lots of bugs, I mean lots of bugs. some bugs will stop you from completing a level, other bugs will stop you from completing the game. Seriously I cannot complete the game, because after what I assume is the ending movie and both the characters are about to walk off into the sunset. The game notifies me that "Bravo" has died and I have to restart from checkpoint. I have completed the ending boss about 4 times now under different conditions same glitch.
So thanks EA for another steaming pile, and thank you Gamefly for helping to prevent a bad purchase.
Also the really cool aggro swapping mechanic from the 1st and 2nd game is gone. Aggro is now a stat on the guns (modable) that affects aggro generation in-game. Aggro can be spent in one way, on brief periods of invincibility/increased damage/no reloads. no more feign death or fake surrender. The AI seems vaguely aware of aggro in-game, with battles just a series of waist high walls. With the aggro swapping tactic gone, so are the cool visuals.
Alternatives to renting this game:
1. Rent Gears of War 2 and pretend all the mutant are Mexicans.
2. Rent Army of Two 1 and/or 2, maybe invite a friend over for pizza and video games.
3. Rent Red Dead Redemption, pretend that all the Mexicans are mutants.
