IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR A GAME TO PLAY WITH A FRIEND ON THE SAME COUCH, THIS IS IT.
This is at the top of the list as far as Co-op gaming goes, with a friend, physically sitting next to you. Network & LAN multiplayer seems to dominate (for good reasons) but this game makes you remember how important it is for games to be two player split-screen. TWO enhances the experience 100 fold because the skill can totally increase or decrease depending on the communication you share with your partner, which makes it completely legitimate to play with a friend in depth in the same room. I gave this an 8, because the graphics although good, could be better(and so could the script but that's for 80% of games out there), and the learning curve could attribute to more options, but overall, this is my absolute favorite splitscreen game right now, and trust me, I've played them all. The first 2 TWO installments are a bit different than this one, all good in their own right, but I believe this newest 3rd installment is upping the experience for sure. So get a friend you communicate well with and rock it fresh!
It is a completely different feeling to play with someone "in real life" than it is over headset. I hope we don't lose that as time in gaming goes on. Good luck gamerpeeps.
