Thanks for the links mate
It's shaping up nicely. The lighting looked spot on and there was a good solid feeling to the scenery. The body armour does seem to be able to take a fair bit of damage though. It almost seemed too easy. Reminds me of some old police footage of two blokes who robbed a bank in LA wearing full body armour.
Hmm, perhaps this game isn't shaping up quite a nicely as I was expecting(perhaps a good thing for me as I already have way too many games on my "must buy" list)The criticism lies mostly with the game's storyline and main characters, the latter of which Xbox World decries as the least likable in video game history. The plot of the game is apparently incredibly xenophobic, with generic terrorist enemies who refer to the main characters as " infidels." The gameplay, meanwhile, is described as bland and repetitive, with numerous cut-scenes and clumsy controls.
Is there any hope for Army of Two? Not according to Xbox World, who describe the game's delay as nothing more than "a stay of execution." Considering their qualms lie largely with the game's intrinsic plot, writing, and characters, they could very well be right.
That's a shame, judging from early previews it looked like this game would be decent.A pretty damning prevew of Army of Two from Xbox World who apparently were all set to review the near final build of the game, seems they weren't impressed(putting it politely!).

Definitely seems to be a more favourable review. But, sometimes I think IGN dont really come out and say "god, this is still crap", I like their reviews/articiles but they played "Hour of Victory & Blacksite" and had loads of hype on these games. It wasnt till the reviews came in that we saw reports inline with other magazines/sites - not great!.This game had a lot of potential when I first saw it as I'm a sucker for a good co-op game and with this one being designed from the ground up for it I thought it should be good. My interest waned with a few daming previews and some less than inspiring videos. The latest preview I've read seems to suggest the experience has been tightened up slightly and with any luck they'll have gotten rid of the borderline racism that seemed to blight the previous builds.
Still one I'll try before buying but it could be good to have something to play with mates on co-op (mainly as they get fed up of me kicking their asses when we play adverserial! )
I must admit as much as I generally have full praise & respect for IGNs reviews, I also agree that their previews can sound very promising right up until an often very poor review. I never read to much into their previews these days and just wait for the reviews which tend to be alot more up front & honest.Definitely seems to be a more favourable review.

It's the latest 'must have'! We've got 3D, lightshaded, bump, diffuse and texture mapped graphics. We've got 3D positional audio. We've got physics engines. We've got online multiplayer. Now we're getting a dedicated 64bit humour processor!for some reason EA seem to be using 'humour' in BF:BC too. its gameplay i'm bothered about not the 'hilarious' one liners.
