Damn so much blood on the screen...

Don't like it much, tho. There are so many good games to come out I've lost all interest in that one.

Getting it mainly for co-op as i love co-op games there class :D

I honestly don't know what to think about this...I've heard both good and bad things. One of the guys developing this game seemed like a complete jackass in an interview and the design of the main characters is horrible, so that does not bode well but...i guess it all boils down to how well the co-op element is executed. If you really have to work in a team to get shit done it might be a really fun game, but if it's just a mindless shooting massacre where the co-op is there just because it's sweet with co-op games then i probably won't be picking this one up. So what I'm saying here is that I'll wait for review before i decide whether this looks like shit or not :)

The trailer didn't do much in terms of convincing me that this is a good game.

There are like 2-3 things that makes this game "meh".

The weapon muzzles NEVER change animation, its the same "X" look in every weapon you shoot with.

The AI seems a bit "am I suppose to shoot at them?", meaning bad.

The sound of the weapons are shit, to be honest.
It doesn't feel that you are firing a real weapon or any different weapon when you pick them up.

Overall, the shooting seems to be broken to me, not so good.

However, Gamespot did a Q&A lately about its multiplayer and its 2 vs 2 game, and yes, you can customize every part of your character, from clothing, to weapons.

I guess its a game if you are slightly interested, you wish to have a demo coming out, which knowing EA, they probably will.

i really dont have any complaints about the game tbh. initially i thought it looked extremely cluncky but recent footage shows it seems to have pretty responsive controls so that doesnt seem to be the case anymore. at a stretch i supose i dont like the arcadey look to everything. the sway meter on the top of the screen, the way you glow red when your taking all the attention and the way you go transparent when your mr sneaky. i think a more unobtrusive system would have been better. overall i think it looks awesome tho, its no kane and lynch, but everything else is right up my street. love the character design too. they may be generic masked mercs, but they sure as hell look cool.

Generic masked mercs?

I haven't seen any game with this type of armor set in games for characters in a army game.

maybe not, but they're still very generic "characterless" characters. like master chief. they're not so much good character designs, more like hockey goal keepers in a warzone. but as i said, they still look cool as hell, no matter how generic they are.

Well I wouldn't say it was complete characterless.
Rio and Salem has a reason why their masks looks like that you know.

Rio didn't have the scar on his face later on in the game, and that is why he wanted a extra touch on his skull-type masked to have as well.

Salem is a "street" guy, and he obviously likes flames, so it probably matches his personality.

I can't say its the same armor, but it makes the job easier to protecting them, from face to the rest of the body.

I kind of like the new Chiefs armor, wouldn't say the best but its good.

The best looking and useable armor I have seen both realisticly and sci-fi is the exoskeleton Nano suit from Crysis and the Octo stealth suit that Snake is wearing in MGS4, those a freaking beauties right there.

Don't know what you mean there...be specific :)

I just like them because they look awesome, and they are useful in battle.
Master Chief is a walking tank in that thing.

Snake uses a stealth suit which is flexible and now has camo, which is very useful in his infiltration missions.

the Exoskeleton Nano Suit...well, thats just fast, strong, protective, and awesome looking shit.

But in Army of Two their gear is all straight up realistic, were they have mount different pieces of armor to their likings and the way they are comfortable.

Haha I didn't even pay attention to his rare end :P
I guess you looked at it and said "joke material right there" hahaha ;)

ugh, enough of the military type shooter already!
Cant stand the same guns recreated over and over again, same characters, same enemies... I personally am fed up, CoD4 will be my last probably.
When are we going to start seeing more Shadow-of-the-Colossus-type-of-Creativity?!
:S

Well Sabao you DONT have to think about shooters...you don't see shooter fans say "enough with white spikey pretty boys with magic spells that have to save the world from evil monsters".

You knew what you were getting yourself into when you entered this thread.

If you don't like shooters, I don't understand why enter the thread, no offence.

Non taken, but you see sath i do like shooters, so that's why i entered this thread. but i'm getting fed up of them, is it ok for you if i express my sadness for the lack of innovation?

Or are these threads only for the "uh wow nice" "uh great i love it?"

Do as you please, but you did say you are sick of military shooters thats why I asked why you came here.

Maybe you are more into sci-fi shooters, which is my favorite settings in a game.

But COD4 is my only and my last realistic/modern game I am gonna buy for sure, not much into it. But the type of customization that game has and its potential.

But the rest of my games are more sci-fi, fantasy, supernatural themed.

"There is too much *enter whatever genre here* games on 360!!!1" kind of comments on every thread puzzle me. People complaining that X0 is getting too mutch games? Are these guys forced to buy every game what gets released? Should every new game be packed whit new and groundbreaking (and usually useless) innovations? :D
Like on older gamersyde preview mentioned, this still looks like medicore GOW clone. There wasnt too much to get exited on this trailer either. Those "cooperative moves" could be fun though. We'll see when it gets released, but my crystal ball indicates that this is not going to be "game of the year" material.
