Never go into battle alone! EA's new next-gen boutique development studio is changing the face of how people will play games. Delivering a groundbreaking strategic 3rd person co-op shooter unparalleled in the action genre, EA Montreal's Army Of Two focuses on gameplay centred around two man missions, two man strategies, two man tactics and a two man advantage.

Today, the United States is awarding an unprecedented number of contracts to Private Military Corporations (PMC) in an effort to maintain its presence worldwide. Since the Vietnam War, this number has increase ten fold and is only rising. As the clear cut flow of the chain of command blurs and the military responsibilities of a nation slipping out of its own control, it is getting hard to tell who really holds the power.

As ex-Army Rangers now turned contractors for a PMC, Army Of Two challenges you to fight along side your team-mate on missions developing and using the combined skills necessary to become the deadliest two man military outfit. Whether with a live player or Army Of Two's unique Partner AI, Army Of Two delivers a revolutionary new way to play an action shooter.
  • Suitable for 18 years and over. Not for sale to persons under age 18. By purchasing this product, you declare that you are 18 years of age and over.

Two Man Gameplay: Co-Op is no longer a mode, it's the game. Players must undertake two man mission using two man strategies and tactics to ultimately create a two man advantage that no enemy can withstand.

    Partner AI: Army Of Two delivers intelligent Partner AI (PAI) that will interact, adapt, collaborate and learn from their human partner. The PAI will also react and adjust to the gamer's ability and how they play the game by taking the lead or following, driving strategy or taking orders. It is the dream of the human machine.

      Dynamic Environments: EA Montreal's proprietary technology called the Inertia Engine delivers realistic character and environmental effects including fluid dynamics that showcase an open-ocean water-wave simulation as well as physics based animations.

        Online Gameplay: Army Of Two redefines two man online gameplay with players seamlessly moving from PAI to live players as they make their way through the game.

         A good game that suffers from Assassin's Creed Syndrome

        | | See all RockNRollFanatic's reviews (3)

        Ok first I would like to make two points. First I have actually completed this game (twice in fact) and secondly I am NOT out to slate it (as I imagine my 3 star review might ruffle some feathers among the blinkered idiots who often review games before ripping open the cellophane).
        The idea behind army of two is phenomenal. It is great to see developers thinking outside the box. For this I salute them and I hope they follow on from this title. The game itself is a solid 3rd person shooter with good graphics and co-op elements similar to split screen splinter cell. The story is intereting and involving and the banter between the main characters is amusing. In short for the first playthrough I can see why many people would give it 5 stars.
        However this game suffers from 'Assassin's Creed Syndrome' - ie: 'Good but could have been so much more'. Firstly the level of co-operation needed between the characters is minimal. Apart from helping each other onto the odd ledge you can basically ignore your partner for the whole game. Where was the forklift driving and the rappelling as shown in the video? The step jump and ripping car doors off for shields was about the limit of it. As far as vehicles was concerned a couple of mediocre efforts at chases in a hovercraft was all that was on offer.
        Apart from the severely limited opportunitiesfor co-operation the other biggest let down (and this is NOT unique to Army of Two, it seems to be standard nowadays) and that is that it's so damn short! Every game these days (cod 4, MGS series etc etc) are great games but are over in the twinkling of an eye. This MASSIVELY hampers the replay value of army of two. I have played it twice with a friend online and apart from a period when it would keep losing our connectino it worked fine and was very enjoyable. However after completing it twice I am in no rush to go back to it any time soon.
        Overall I was left with a slight sense of dissappointment - I had been very much looking forward to this game as I love co-op, but Army of Two left me slightly frustrated as I know it is a good release for PS3 but it has the potential to be mindblowingly good. I hope they spend more time on the sequel as they are really on to something here. A longer less linear game with more emphasis on co-operative moves would surely rank Army of Two 2 (or should that be Army of Four???) among the greatest releases ever. This is why I have ranked it as 3 stars, as a game it is more like 4 but everyone who plays it must surely feel the untapped potential out there. Thanks for reading.

         Dont buy it - a complete waste of your hard earned cash.

        This is a really poor and dissapointing game - repetitive maps , boring - each mission the same as the last, terrible story, awful script, most forms of vehicle have been removed before games release, the whole army of two thing is gimmicky and the game 'path' is completely set in stone.

        This game was my first PS3 online game , me and a friend were very much looking forward to playing this until - in a short period of time we discovered that the blind fireing is more accurate than precision, that the melee attacks were crap and repetitive and it seemed the enemy has to be facing you to perform these attacks ?(why have a knife and not use it, just for show?) we had save problems on each other machines etc etc. I could easily go on - to be honest this is a ps1 game with better graphics, it does nothing for the powerhouse ps3, I you have played this just stop and think of the actual potential for this game and then look at the disaster that is army of two.

        Stick to COD4 or wait for GTA IV but for the love of god leave this alone.
        P.s My mate Darren completely
        agrees with me :)

        Firstly, this is one of my favourite games on the ps3. It has everything you could want. A exciting story line, fantastic graphics and great gameplay!

        The story line is gripping all the way through, it even makes you laugh along the way due to the fantastic TWO main characters. You can even praise or beat up your mate which is a nice little touch.

        How people can say that graphics are poor is beyond me! You either have a poor tv or need your eyes tested as the surrounding areas and the cut screen videos are truly satisfying!

        Overal i rate this game very highly even though it is a third person shooter and would recommend to anyone who is a shooter fan!

         Yet Another Short-length Game...

        Phenomenal graphics, great idea on the weapon-upgrades/pimping, but money is a problem when you end up having to save up for the $125 minigun plus $50 upgrades.

        The gameplay is terrific, but lacks a little. Precision is pointless when you can easily survive, blind-shooting behind crates. The game is very slow as pushing your partner up a wall and trying to heal your partner takes absolutely ages and you end up getting killed in combat. Also 'Aggro' is pointless as all the bullets go to your mate while you sneak behind opponents but when skillfully aiming to annihilate your enemy, your friend has been instantly slaughtered by several other foes.

        This really disappoints from the point of looking forward to the game and completing it an hour or two after. And the actions repeat often.

        It worries me how much Playstation realise they are entertaining gamers. This game very much simplifies that. Playstation has to wake up and realise that the PS3 is not for profit sales, it is for gaming entertainment.

        There appears to be alot of mixed feelings about this game, I've had a PS3 for about three days and decided to rent this game. I have not played the single player campaign, only two player co-op. It is fun.

        The game sticks to an obvious forula, run around and shoot the bad guys, but playing with another real life person is very entertaining indeed. In my honest opinion I would not pay full price for this game, but a rent or picking it up at a reduced price would not be a bad idea.

        The graphics are reasonable, the gameplay does get a little tired, but as a two player game, its certainly worth a play!
