Army of Two (PS3)
Advantages: Great with friends round, ok for a few hours alone.
Disadvantages: poor online gameplay, weak story.
Don't get me wrong, Army of Two has it's moments but it's just not a great game. This was for a while one of PlayStation 3's great hypes and unfortunately, it just didn't deliver. We have a water weak story line about power and corruption seen from the perspective of two guys that we really don't care to much about. Put it this way, if this was a teen slasher, these lads would be the first to get the chop. The system of using the two characters works ok, but i felt that my AI controlled assistant was pretty much there to take the heat off of me whenever i got into hot water. He'd run off at times leaving me with a shower of bullets and nothing but disgruntlement at his shortcomings.
Stick another controller in however and you can have great fun playing this on split screen Co-op as you and your buddies sink some beers and laugh at each others petty playing. It's at this point that the waves of generic troops and poor boss fights don't matter as you're having braindead fun with your friends.
Online, it looses alot. playing a campaign with a friend is dull at best and the multiplayer games for me either wouldn't connect or suffered from lots of lag. This game had great potential but i felt it was thrust out to early and Quality Assurance folk missed so many little, little bits and pieces.
Summary: a potentally great game, let down by poor development.
