Im looking forward to this one also any
release date for it yet
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.
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!).
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)
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! )
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!.
for some reason EA seem to be using 'humour' in BF:BC too. its gameplay i'm bothered about not the 'hilarious' one liners.
