First, Army of Two has shown that it can take a common game type and expand on it dramatically which it did. The aggro system is by far a great addition to 3rd person shooters and expanded on the co-op gameplay that has never been looked at a lot. The AI is very intelligent in this game and people need to realize that its Artificial Intelligence. People have gone low on reviewing this game as to say that the AI is retarded like "one time the ai was just running into a wall and was stupid this game is teh suck durrr."
Seriously, on my time playing this game I have not encountered dumb AI whatsoever. But that could be because I play on a difficulty HIGHER then recruit but hey I guess I'm a stupid gamer. The AI knows whats going on in a fight and does its best to counter anything you do in this game. They have flanked me and take strong defensive positions that made the game fun as hell to play.
The AI partner is even pretty intelligent to order that you give him and not some dumb idiot that shoots at walls all the time. He knows how to back you up and hold aggro when you want him to. The tactics the game implemented in this game have reached new innovations for Third Person Shooters instead of the whole run and gun scenario.
Although I clearly like this game a lot I will say that this should be a rent first. Its not the kind of game that will appeal to all game enthusiasts and should be rented first before deciding if this game is for you. The difficulty in the game is to say the least... difficult. The AI is incredibly intelligent and can get frustrating at times, but at the very most it should also make you feel good that they didn't create jackass AI that ride the short bus.
Sound Effects are great in this game and the guns are incredible. The guns don't sound to unrealistic and overdone or to mild and soft sounding at all. They reached the sound expectations of making the perfect gun sounds for the game.
All in all this is a great game and should be considered by a lot of people that own a X-Box 360 and should give it a shot at the very least.
