Like the title says, this game very boring and very dumb. The first two games were fun, but unfortunately its very obvious that the people making the game really didn't care about the quality they put out. First the graphics are boring, game play boring and how many times can I shoot the same bad guy over and over and over. Also you'll never make enough money to buy all the cool weapons and upgrades. Story is so lame you'd think a freshman in high school wrote it. So over all, don't waste your time, shoot reading the good reviews on this game is a better use of your time
Let me preface by saying that this was a better game than 40th Day.
But it's still not a very good game.
The biggest appeal is unlocking new weapons and upgrading them, as well as clothes and masks... but, none of it's special. You can create your own mask, however, investing the time necessary to unlock everything, or get a Platinum simply isn't worth it with a game this mediocre.
40th Day ended so bad, I guess the story here is good considering what they had to work with, although it's pretty lame. They seem to have taken out a lot of the things that would have made the series great had they ever progressed them, mostly just in the interactions between the two, and the reliance on Co-Op. I felt like I was playing a generic TPS. This series never really set out to do what it wanted or what its capable of, and now it seems it's happy just to be another game on the shelf that some people will play because you can shoot a machine gun in slow motion and blow things up.
I don't know how else to explain that it's not that bad (as in I actually played it all the way through) but is still not worth a minute of your time.
Chances are, you've played the others and you'll play this one with honest expectations. Or, you've never played them and you're on the fence, in which case, stay away. There's nothing to see here.

I loved the first two Army of Two games and was hella excited for this one and it didn't disappoint, if you're new to the series you're in for a treat and if you've played the series before and didn't like it all that well I would suggest putting it in your Q and giving it a chance because it's awesome, there are only a couple of things I can say negative about this game 1. too short 2. AI is kind of slow but besides that it's a wonderful TPS.
Controls-Easy to pick up on they give you a tutorial in the beginning.
Graphics-Nice better than the first two by far but not great.
Story-Awesome you get to kill a bunch of Mexican cartel members and try to free the nation from there controls and terror
Gameplay-Hours of fun and mayhem
I gave this game a 8/10 it was put together very well it's worth putting in your Q!!
