Review: Army of Two: The 40th Day
by Jim Sterling

Army of Two didn't exactly set the gaming world aflame when it released back in 2008. In fact, the only remarkable thing about EA Montreal's co-op shooter was its sheer tastelessness, as daring duo Salem and Rios fist-bumped and cracked wise over the corpses of Middle Eastern terrorists. 

Despite the first game's critical reception, EA Montreal clearly did well enough to deserve another crack of the whip, and thus has returned with Army of Two: The 40th Day. Toning down the inappropriate behavior and ramping up the graphics, Army of Two's latest installment could be considered quite the improvement. However, that might not be saying much.

So, just how much of an improvement is 40th Day? Have Salem and Rios finally been given something that deserves a fist-bump, or are these two mercenaries doomed to mediocrity forever? Read on as we review Army of Two: The 40th Day.

Army of Two: the 40th Day TV spot appears, is serious

One of the first -- if not the first -- TV spots for Army of Two: the 40th Day doesn’t measure up to the brilliant bit of marketing we witnessed with Borderlands. No midgets, no three-balled bosses, or loot are shown. ...

Salem and Rios like GameStop, hate cash registers

This morning’s Army of Two: the 40th Day trailer is a return to the ridiculous. It features the functionally retarded (and venerable) Salem and Rios during a release day event at a GameStop.  If you care to take a...
