Game Reviews

Army of Two

First game in my pile of unplayed games that I’ve decided not to finish.

I know the series has reasonable popularity but I’m finding the level design boring AND difficult (even at lower settings). The store system is slow to load and awkwardly integrated with the rest of the game. The latest meh moment for me was the placing of a store prompt (“Do you want to visit a slow loading store that offers nothing you want to buy”) right after an autosave before a difficult level.

So I die. Reload. Receive store prompt (25% of the time accidentally clicking ‘yes’ instead of the ‘no, never would I want I want to waste my valuable time going through your clunky store interface”). Repeat.

Whatever interest I had after some of the exciting early levels (that were exciting, exactly once) had faded, I’m done. Bye.
