ARMY OF TWO (GAME SERIES)
By Diana "DumeeGamer" Dumee & Ferry "Sadhonker" Adams on March 5, 2015
I think this series is one of the greatest two player series out there.
Yes, yes, yes, Get on with it already. Let me shoot something!
Good, thatís something youíre gonna do a lot in this game. Can I play Rios?
Iím always player one, so Iím gonna be Rios.
Less sniveling, more killing.
Okay, then. Weíre going do this nice and easy. If you just go left, then Iíll head right and sneak up onÖ
So much for the tactical approach. Iím staying behind with my mighty sniper and cover your ass.
My ass doesnít need covering. Iíve got a big gun. Taste lead, puny humans!
But seriously. This game is about cooperative game play. The more you shoot, the more youíll attract the enemies attention. In Army Of Two, this attention is represented by agro. This will be shown on the Aggro-meter. It shows who has Aggro and how much Aggro he has. You can use that in your advantage. One can distract the enemy, while the other sneaks around unnoticed and flank them. If you have enough Aggro, you can enter the Overkill mode. You canít be harmed for a while.
Oh, all right.
Just fire away. That way all the Aggro goes to you and I can sneak around and flank these f*cksticks.
Yup! Go for it! Iíll use the Aggro to go in Overkill if things get hairy. Mwoohahahaha! You canít hurt me now!
Never mind. Which part of this series is your favorite?
Definitively part two. The in-game jokes and the characters add the overall fun.
Yeah, part two is my favorite too. I like the decisions you have to make at certain points in the game. Although they donít really influence the final outcome. The little changes in the story make it worthwhile to play this game again.
Do you think it's nessecary to play these games in order?
Well, not necessarily. But itís handy because it shows the evolution of the characters. If you start with part 3 for example, youíll have no clue who Rios and Salem are.
I agree. While it clarifies the story, itís not a necessity. Every game in the series has its own story, so story-wise youíll have no problems.
So we both think this game is great, especially to play co-op.
Works for me, can we please go back to killing things?
Sure, why not?!
(Both) DIE MOTHABITCHES!
