About Army of Two

Set in the near future, Army of Two puts you in control of a mercenary team to do paramilitary operations for governments. You will be able to play co-op with a friend, or go through the campaigns in single player mode, giving orders to your partner. However, unlike other games, the AI will decide whether to listen to your orders, based on previous encounters and how well you have been controlling your team.

Summary

Army of Two removes the mold and stale stench from the third-person genre; while trying to implement an entire co-op experience which rarely falls short in any category. If there is ever a sequel released to this game, we’ll be more than excited to check it out.

We like

  • Great partner AI
  • Solid online experience
  • Co-op play is brilliant

We dislike

  • Objective sometimes disappears online
  • Weapon customization is unbalanced
  • Crosshair feels a bit "wild"
