Army of Two: The Devils Cartel Overkill Mode


I have a soft spot for Army of Two as it was the first preview we were invited to as a company and to this day it is possibly the earliest review of code that I’ve ever seen… yes I think it was all a bit of a miscommunication back then but that’s beside the point.

When the game was finally released it was, well, just not very good. It has a cult following among some people but with a Metacritic score of mid 70’s it obviously didn’t set the world on fire.

But that hasn’t stopped EA making a sequel and The Devils Cartel looks like it may be a big improvement over the first title.

The gameplay looks similar but the dynamic destruction, graphics and lack of stupid dialogue appears to be a huge improvement.

What do you think, did you love Army of Two and is this appealing?

    ” possibly the earliest review of code” ?
    Do tell.

      No great secret. But when I previewed Army of Two we were a tiny site and the code I previewed still had the tampon mini game thing in it and was really glitchy. All early code is glitchy but I’ve never had a game change that much as I did with Army of Two

        “tampon mini game thing”??

    Co-Op split screen is the best with Army of two. The agro system used to draw enemy fire works great. The pimping of guns is fun and the different masks makes your player look bad ass.

    But why no PC release?

    Video looks kinda fun, but that is just my problem with console games, it looks and feels so arcade-ish and all the same.The aiming and shooting also looks too easy. Like its dumbed down.

    Take SpecOps, a brilliant game in story, gameplay is ok-ish, but it feels so linear and like the side scroller games of old.

    I dunno, maybe I am just too picky/old/grumpy/vol kak

    The previous one was so much fun in Co-op split screen, I think I will defiantly pick this one up so my bro and I can veg on the couch killing bad guys and fist bumping.
