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.

         Worth the pennies. Co-op with a mate is great fun.

        So AO2 worth it? Well theres been hype and with such hype comes inevitable high expectations and in a nut shell despite not being without its snags and odd frustrating moments its a heck of a lot of fun. Kicked straight into online co-op mode with a mate and pretty soon we had mastered the controls after a brief and to the point training mission and racking up the cash in the main missions celebrating each dollar with in game character celebrations including high 5's and air guitar! So it was easy to get into but most important, gameplay and controls. The control system can be picked up pretty fast and players of GoW will be familiar with the style of play but where as Ao2 is maybe not as immersive as GoW it is certainly fun to play. At heart its basic, kill enemies get cash achieve objectives get more cash but with this money you get to "pimp out" and buy new equipment from weapons to body armor resulting in you wanting to get that extra kill and earn more than your buddy so you can show off your new gold plated ak47. Theres a good range of new weapons and upgrades to buy allowing you and your mate to choose different classes one could go down a more support weapon path while the other up close. The controls aren't as smooth as GoW or without the odd moments of frustration but the buddy abilities add an extra dimension to the gameplay that makes up for this. The agro system works well allowing one player to draw fire while the other sneaks round and makes the kills and is vital to achieving success. While at times it can be simply a case of hiding behind cover for X amount of time repeatidly gunning down wave upon wave of bad guys with some thought you can come up with more stylish ways to achieve the goal. Graphics are fine for what the games trying to achieve although theres not much in the way of destructable enviroment.
        In a nut shell, a lot of fun in multiplayer with enough upgrades and online modes to keep it intresting. Probably not half as much fun in single player so if your not on xbox live def rent rather than buy.
        Hope this has been some help its a bit late as im typing this up but think it highlights the main points about the game and helps you spend that hard earned cash on somthing you'll enjoy rather than regret.

        Army Of Two is a great game. Good fun and challenging in parts. The game play is very similar to Gears of War but with more features. A great game that will keep you entertained.

        The two player game is where the game is at its best. Great fun working along side a friend of partner online. Allows you to develop and improve your tactics.

        Down sides to the game are the campaign is reasonably short and AI are not the smartest which puts a slight downer on the game.

        Gameplay 8/10

        hoping that Army of Two from EA was going to be better than your average shooter how i was soon let down by ea again. After all, it's completely centered around two-player cooperative play, and early looks promised a game with good graphics and a subversive sense of humor€like a buddy action flick, full of one liners and big explosions. Well, both of those things are few and far between, and the end result feels unfinished and unrealized, as if they had to rush the game out the door. Army of Two is a huge disappointment for me.et me give you one example of how the game seems unfinished,well the biggest issue is it's main selling point the so called co-op play The bad teammate AI and the lack of a good control scheme over your teammate will make many fights frustrating, because he frequently runs off and gets himself killed. You have to micromanage him, but you're not given decent commands to do so. Basically, all you get is "attack," "come to me," "stay where you are" and "lay down covering fire ,ie you spend the game leading you team mate around like a little lost puppy dog when you wish he would go john rambo on everybody around you It's also problematic when you have the aggro built up (i.e. the enemy is focusing on you) and you want to send your team mate around the back of them all stealth like. You can only tell him to advance, which he basically does in a straight line. The reason all this is so annoying, is that this is what the entire combat system is based on€one guy going rambo and the other guy becoming somewhat invisible as a result. Playing by yourself, you're pretty limited in how you make this work at times as you left doing the work of two guys.the gameplay itself is nothing next gen it's no cod4 anyway I personally had high hopes for Army of Two. The idea is a great one, I like the burly feel to the weapons and characters, and I think the two-player-centric nature of the game opens up a lot of great possibilities. But the game ranges from moments of great intense action to totally bland and repetitive sections like a lot of other ea games and games as of late it just fills rushed out unfinished at times

         Drool over this amazing game...

        the teamwork is amazingly good, saw a demo in XBL, so i dled it, LOVED IT and got it,the greatest thing is not in its gameplay..oh no..its something far more rewarding..when you download shooter or violent games and play them on XBL. you always get little 12 yr olds tryin to be tough by playin a game that probably makes their stomache churn. this NEEDS the 18 certificate on the box, so these little brats cant buy it. directly at least. thats the best part of the game for me anyways..on with the other stuff then..
        the gameplay is good, graphics are nice, and the concept is brilliant, how many times have you wanted to shout at your tv in a shooter "GO AROUND THE CRATES AND COVER MY SIX, I'll Sneak around and take him out!!" or something similar, with xboxlive play you can..playing with another intelligant human being is brilliant. the partner AI on your own is pretty good too. the enemy AI is challenging. it has to be when you consider you've got 2 intelligant, mature gamers comin at you full force.
        dragging away your partner from the main area, while shootin at the enemys, healing them, then both of you charge to knock some sense into your enemies, you and your partner absail down a wall, run to take cover and then clear the room of the baddies, or maybe its just you and your partner that mow down loads of terrorists in a huge open space before extraction arrives. beats all other millitary shooters iv played, and for good reason. 5/5

         Brilliant, no no, AWESOME!

        This is an awesome game! The cut scenes are superb and it's a well designed game. Its not the longest of games I have to admit, but it's the little things that also help make this game. You can buy different masks, collect extra in game things, funny comedic paring moments and the best part is modifing your guns. I have spent ages modifing my guns and its been worth it when going through the missions.

        I'm not big on army games what so ever, but this just looked different for me, it's really worth the money, and when you play it co op with a friend, it can be so much fun.

        If you arn't sure whether to buy it, buy it anyway, it's honestly worth it =0)
