Army of Two is definitely my favorite game for the 360 the raphics compare with gears of war, the gameplay is awesome especially if you have someone else to play it with. Also a huge part of the game is customization the level of detail is astounding. You can gold plate any weapon and make many adjustments to your gun based of the style of play. This game will be the best game of 087 second only to gow2

This game is pretty good. As someone else said it's a cross between Rainbox Six Vegas and Gears of War. In some respects they've taken the best of what's out there and improved on it, and in some respects they missed on key features. For example there's no true duck and cover system, however when you crouch the character very smartly does duck and cover like moves. There is a melee, but it's pretty dumb you have to be next to someone real close, and wait for this mini-cut shot to activate, not like any other standard shooter game.
The guns are ridiculously dumb because you pick your favorite and stick with it the entire game. Never have a problem with ammo, etc.
Graphics and sound are pretty amazing. Crosshairs are a little like GRAW which I'm not a big fan off, I would have preferred a more Gears or Vegas like. (You'll see what I mean when you play it).
Single player campaign is short (about 6 hours, one sitting for me). The computer AI is actually decent, there where times when I wish I could point to a specific spot though for my other guy. There's little tricks you can do to make it happen, but its if you are lucky. I would definitely think this would be much better with another human.
This game is certainly worth renting and playing through at least once. I would have like to see more levels where you were really distanced from your partner though.

Army of Two- 6.0
The Co-op tactics are one of a kind. No other game have I ever seen anything like this. I should compare the two but, AO2 and the splinter cells are similar in the co-op maneuvers. Great game for playing with a friend.
The Weapons of AO2 are awesome. If you like big, heavy, " blast your face off" type of guns, This game will peak your interest. Of course, there is a fair share of smaller SMG's and handguns to choose from.
Story Line of AO2 is pretty interesting. Some twists that will keep you wondering, in a sense.
Smart AI. Your Teammate, single player, is rather smart. You tell him to hold position, and he does just that. Easy to control him and tell him what to do.
The length: I got this game hoping for a long, hard to beat game. This was not the case. It was difficult, no question about that one, but long? Not the case for Army of Two.
Very little re-play value. Beat the game three times and you've got all the weaponry and more then likely most of the achievements. I beat the game the first day I had it, and twice more the second and I am extremely bored due to the little re-play value.
Kind of predictable. There is points in the game where you know something is going to happen. I wont give anything away but, If you play, I'm sure you will notice it as well.
Multi-player is kind of, well, lacking. It gets very repetitive after only a few matches. Some of the maps are very hard to navigate through. The lag of the game could be because of it being so new, I'm sure EA will fix that in time.
All in all, Army of Two is good for a Rent, I wouldn't plan on buying it if I was you. Fun and addictive for the first play through. Good for playing with Friends.
