This game from EA is by far one of the best games they've put out yet. The gameplay is fantastic, the controls very easy to use and the graphics are phenomenal. It is a pleasure to play a true co-op game where you rely so heavily on your partner. This game will truly become part of my permanent library. Kudos EA! Great job!

Army of two is a fun duel person squad game that is fun and relatively easy to pick up. Graphics are nice and the AI is well done. Also, the upgrades for purchase add an incentive to do well on missions and get the available bonuses. This game is similar to ghost recon but with more humor and is more managable.

I love action heavy games like this. Army of Two incorporates some interesting gameplay mechanics that mostly work well in this third person shooter.
You play as a secret soldier and along with your partner, go out on deadly missions to stop the terrorists. You work as a team and use such maneuvers as flanking, cover fire, blind fire, etc. Overall, the controls work well and are easy to adapt to. The interface is easy to access and switching weapons does not hinder gameplay at all. A cool feature is being able to buy new and upgrade current weapons and armor. The graphics are great and there is nice detail in some of the environments and for the most part the level design matches the area you would see in real life; lots of dessert terrain and military style strongholds. One key component is how you and your partner function as a team. You have what is called an aggro meter which can swing both ways. The one with the most aggro gets all the attention from the bad guys. You can command your partner to take the most aggro so you can flank enemies. This also works if you need to recover health for a time. You must pay attention to this meter because your partner will need the same help as well from time to time. This adds a bit of strategy to the game which is good. Some of the issues I had with the game were how aggressive the enemies can be sometimes and it felt like they could take more hits than they should be able to. But these issues were minor and after about 20 minutes into the game become almost unnoticeable. I did find the single player mode pretty short, but there are enough multiplayer options to keep the game fresh for a long time.
