  • 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.

  • Conclusion: Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel Image © EA I can't say I ever hated playing "Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel". It taps too much of a vein of macho, silly fun to ever be boring. It's just a missed opportunity more than a total disaster. In the grand spectrum of recent games, we've played a masterpiece (" Bioshock Infinite ") and a total disaster (" The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct ").

  • Excerpt: I am often wary of blindly stereotyping any given franchise or genre, and I’m the first to remind others to remain open-minded and even optimistic. Therefore, I’m not a big fan of statements such as, “Meh, it’s just another shooter.

  • Excerpt: Army of Two has always been about the clear and simple premise of shooting up bad guys with a buddy. Propelled by explosions and irreverent humor, the games aren't meant to be taken too seriously, but with The Devil's Cartel, it's as if the developer's set out to dumb-down a game that wasn’t really that smart to begin with.

  • Conclusion: It is a great run and gun shooter but barring that it has nothing that takes the series forward or will make you beg for another entry into the franchise.

Army of Two: The Devils Cartel review

Gamedot
11 April 2013
  • Conclusion: Army of Two: The Devils Cartel is by no means a terrible game, nor is it a great game. It is simply an OK shooter that features some good shooting mechanics, a passable story and some pretty impressive carnage. It’s the gaming equivalent of a Michael Bay movie; you will pay to experience it, enjoy it at the time and later either feel dirty for doing so or completely forget about it.
  • Pros: Fantastic destruction on offer. Pulsating gun fights at times.Graphics are slick and crisp.
  • Cons: Repetitive gameplay. Lacks a gobsmack moment. Cover mechanics feel rusty. Incredibly dumb dialogue.

  • Summary: A splendidly colourful game with a confused tone and too many bugs, Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel will at best briefly amuse then disappear from memory.
  • Pros: Great visuals and sound design. The cover destruction is excellent. Guns feel appropriately meaty.
  • Cons: The enemy AI and cover system are hugely flawed, and the story and dialogue are woeful. Almost all else is utterly generic.

  • Conclusion: Often cannon-fodder would simply run right at me with machetes drawn hoping to end my life with high pitched wailing and bad breath. A dozen shells from my upgraded automatic shotgun with dragon’s breath rounds to the face was the only appropriate response. My favourite AI cheap shot occurred when reviving a downed human co-op partner.
  • Pros: Crazy weapon modifiers, Insane outfits, Benito Martinez
  • Cons: Monotonous unsatisfying gameplay, Unbelievably predictable plot that just keeps going, Forgettable characters, Inconsistent AI, Cheap spawning tactics

Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel Review - PS3

  • Conclusion: Overall Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel is an average game but best in the series. The development team has added tons of minor depth to The Devil's Cartel, and this makes a huge impact on final product. Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel is more than just a co-op campaign. Overkill system is a great addition to the game, but still the game lacks many realistic tactical experience.
  • Pros: Campaign is fun (great fun while playing with friend) but single-player portion lack severely, Frostbite 2 Engine a major boost, and thanks to this graphics and visual best in franchise history, Weapon customization and some really amusing dialogue
  • Cons: Very Little Character development, AI is very poor, Repetitive Mission Structure
