Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel Review - "a bad case of sequelitis"
12 May 2013
Summary: The Devil's Cartel takes what made the original Army of Two intriguing and replaces it with quick and simple gameplay that doesn't require much skill. Together with a weak script, this shallow experience is only for the most devoted of fans and trophy hunters desperate for another Platinum.
Pros: Engaging weapon customization, Enjoyable cooperative play
Cons: Aggro system is underutilized, Useless cover system, Wildly inconsistent design
Summary: No sympathy for this devil Army of Two has never been an especially bad series, it's just never been an especially good one. Providing simplified cooperative shooting action, as dumb and dirty as can be, the series has clearly found a fanbase for its particular brand of not very particular action.
Conclusion: Taking yourself seriously isn't all it's cracked up to be and that's where Army of Two needs to go back to its roots, with its weapon upgrade system focused on silliness rather than suppressors and useful tools.
