I don’t hold the Army of Two franchise in particularly high regard – but I’m perhaps being a little harsh on the co-op dudebro shooter. It’s really the perfect sort of “leave your brain at the door” blockbuster entertainment, good for a couple of hours of just blowing stuff up. Judging by this latest blockbuster trailer for the next game in the series; The Devil’s Cartel, blowing stuff up is exactly what you’ll be doing. A lot.
And it looks really good. My biggest worry about Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel is its release date; Coming on March 28, it’s going up against Bioshock Infinite, Gears of War: Judgment and even God of War – games that fill many of the same checkboxes, but probably better.
Are you getting Army of Two?
