Ok everyone, I had a great time on the first game and my buddy and I are looking for a good fun co-op title to get stuck into. I've checked out reviews for the new "Devils Cartel" and need some advice on which one measures up better? I'm not bothered about online play that much and probably will not use the single player AI. Thoughts?
This game rocks. I just finished GOW 3, then put this in and it stands against it quite well. The levels aren't linear in their design so there's always opportunities to sneak up on your foes and the firefights are downright awesome. I also find that even though I'm playing the game with a npc he seems to do quite well by himself......I'm actually killing fewer people than he is??? I think when I'm done I'll write a review on this one. :)
I am not one who likes 3rd person shooters usually but I can see my son and I having some fun with this game in coop. I like the graphics and the ability to modify your weapons so much. I know my son will like that aspect of it and so it will be interesting to see all the combinations we can come up with. I think we will be playing this in due time.
looks like fun, i really didnt like the first one though. but there again i loved kane and lynch 2 after disliking the first also I will grab this very soon :D
This game was fun. I didn't play the multiplayer much, but the single player campaign is cool. It is sorta short though.
HELP! dont know whether to get this game or not, is it worth getting and would i still find players online? also are there any expansion packs or downloadable content available for this game? Would appreciate any advice and if you recommend it let me know why Thanks in advance for any help
This would definitely be in my list of the top 10 most underrated games ever! I only wish the weapon upgrade system was as accessible as in the 1st game and better, more fleshed out consequences to the good/bad decisions taken, a great game overall and a must own for action shooter fans.
Lets c...this game is great..tru not much online stuff to do,but i find myself going 4 replays, going online to shoot enemies and a good game to have if u ever have a friend over. Since it's CoOp based it's a nice game to play in the future. First time you play it is great, i went through a few reruns(at least half a dozen hours or so) then stopped, but many times i just turned on my Ps3 popped in this game and started playing on my favorite campaign level. A nice game to have for sure.
It is like a 9.0. I got this game 3 days ago and it's amazing. I haven't beat it yet but it sure is awesome.
I just played the demo about an hour ago and I had a blast. The only question left in my head is why the hell did this game get a 7.5? Seemed more like an 8.5 or a 9.0 to me.
looks like extremely fun carnage, so thats a definate rental for me, due to the fact that its only about 6 hours long :( looks really fun though! wont bother with the first one
if i watched the review without seeing the rating i would guess you gave it a 8.5 but you gave it a 7.5. The review doesn't match the rating
This deserved a better review. I mean the guns are FULLY customizable. Tell me that's not awesome. And comparing it to the first piece of garbage this one really seemed like it was totally revamped. The gameplay is far more sophisticated. My only complaint was how short the campaign was...
I really hope I can get around to playing this game in the near future. It looks really fun, but I agree with shani_boy101 There is too many games coming out, and ones that I missed that I would play before this. ugh, I need to sign up for GameFly or something.
i played the demo wid my bro, it was pretty cool, teaming up and killing together. kinda felt like part of the game but the graphics arent so good. sbut i'll have to play the whole campaign to know ways its really like
i take it you dont have to have played the 1st one to play this??? i dosent continue on or anything does it??
dissapointment, the game play is like the first, but ill give the customizeability a thump ub, diamond grenade ftw.
I like how they spoiled one of the decisions.The review however is pretty on the mark, though. I do think they really didn't put enough emphasis on HOW MUCH BETTER this one was than the first Army of Two, which was almost unplayable to me. I mean you can go down the list and just observe every issue they fixed from the first game. I'll wait until it's $30 or so to buy.
looks fun but there are way too many awesome games coming out in the next 2 months to even consider purchasing this.
My friends and i love playing co-op games split screen. We're having a great time playing this game. But is it worth 60$?? NaaaH!!!
I agree with fanirama, games that don't have at least 10-12hours of gameplay should be discounted. I would buy this game if it were released for $39.99. But, then again, beyond the short campaign, the game would also be worth it if it were a little better, haha.
I have this game and it is fantastic. To me there is no problems except for the mask creator, which isn't even a big deal in the first place. To me this is a breath of fresh air into the 3rd person shooter genre and is one of the best shooters of 2010 hands down.
Looks good. But 5-6 hours gameplay ? Thats terrible. Its like only twice or thrice of RavenSquad which had 2 hour gameplay and was berated. I think there needs to be a bill of rights that force like min. 12 hours gameplay for a $60 game. 6 hour gameplay games should be $30 max. even with its MP.
Great review by Chris Watters. I haven't seen any of his other reviews, but he's got a knack for the genre. Keep up the good work, Chris.
