We tried to play the Army of Two: the 40th Day demo

Earlier this afternoon, Nick Chester and I gave the Army of Two: the 40th Day demo a spin. We didn’t finish it -- two deaths, the lack of guitar support, and the constant wrangling with the cover mechanic combined to f...

It all starts when terrorists fist bumps a 468-meter tall tower … with explosives. There wasn’t much doubt that Army of Two: the 40th Day would start with an explosion or two or sixteen. In fact, we were pretty ...

You know, I've been looking at Army of Two: The 40th Day for about six months now. After an initial preview, followed by another hands-off opportunity at E3, as well as a solid play through of the first level of the PSP version, I've been able to get a pretty good idea of what Army of Two: The 40th Day is going to offer. Just, you know, I haven't had a chance to play the damn thing.

Thankfully, I was able to rectify the situation earlier this week when EA had a special event in the always charming Tenderloin district of San Francisco devoted specifically to multiplayer in Army of Two: The 40th Day. While you might remember Army of Two's original 2v2 Warzone mode, you would be hard pressed to recognize what EA Montreal has done to multiplayer in Army of Two: The 40th Day. It's a whole different ball of wax this time around.

Preview: Army of Two: The 40th Day (PSP)

I've spent a lot of time looking at Army of Two: The 40th Day. I say looking, because although I was one of the first people to preview the game earlier this year, and I had the opportunity to check it out again this summer at E3, I still haven't actually played the damn game. Go figure.

So it's actually ironic that even though I've seen more of the "bigger" console title than most people out in the world, the first Army of Two game I played is the PlayStation Portable version. Actually, I wouldn't really call it playing an Army of Two game in the traditional sense, as the PSP version is an arcade twin stick shooter with a fixed perspective.

That's right. A twin stick shooter. Wild, I know. Hit the jump to understand what I mean.

Army of Two: The 40th Day box art needs more dead hippos
