Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel

destructoid.com
2 September 2013
  • Summary: 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. It's one of those series with a rudimentary purpose, and it fulfills that purpose without going the extra distance. Nothing acutely wrong with that, it simply is what it is.

Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel Review - "a bad case of sequelitis"

PlayStation Universe
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

Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel Review

GamerNode
11 May 2013
  • Summary: Now the series is a shell of its former self; I guess I'll just have to think back fondly on the good times and erase The Devil's Cartel from my memory. I imagine that won't be difficult.
  • Pros: The return of the Overkill mechanic is welcome, Provides some enjoyable co-op moments with a friend
  • Cons: Eliminates too many mechanics from past entries, Serious tone makes the campaign feel lifeless, Less of an emphasis on cooperative play

Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel

Auracore MediaWorks

  • Summary: Good shootin' fun, but watch out for the grenades. And if you can find a real personality between the two main characters, let me know.
  • Pros: Good mindless shooting fun, more realistic cover system, some pretty cool sequences, easy to control, frequent saves and opportunities to upgrade.
  • Cons: AI glitches, lackluster story and characterization, smart enemies keep it too interesting at times, gun customization left a little to be desired.

Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel

Strategy Informer

  • 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. Scaling itself back for a more "pure" co-op experience just doesn't work for this franchise that benefited so greatly from borderline parody. For that reason alone, The Devil's Cartel is an awkward one to recommend.

PlayStation LifeStyle
5 April 2013
  • Summary: Army of Two? More like Army of Poo amirite?
  • Pros: Shooting is what you would expect., Overkill is kinda cool., Online works well with very little lag or connection issues., Weapon customization is interesting.
  • Cons: Narrative is boilerplate and predictable., There's nothing else enticing in addition to the central gameplay loop., Characters are shallow., Overall the whole game is just....boring. Very boring.
