Army of Two: Possibly the best game ever?

http://www.ea.com/armyoftwo/theater.jsp

Take a look. It takes a while to load, but it's well worth it.

Basically the premise is you're a private security guy (like blackwater) and you and a teammate are fighting in modern warfare, except w/o all of the regimentation that comes with most military games. And, it's pretty much an all co-op game. All of the vehicles are like the warthog in Halo: one person guns and one person drives.

Looks cool, no?

Is there a demo to try?

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

It's for console, so I don't think so. Maybe in an upcoming gaming mag, they have discs w/ demos on them sometimes.

I think you have good taste Cadian 81st.

Aparently the AI is some of the best ever made. They got players to do the missions over and over again then programed thier actions in to your NPC ally.

The Co-op aspect is unlike anything ive ever seen before. The graphics are also great especially for a console system. The big issue is.. as usual.. Its for a console.

At the moment it shouldent be an issue that is for a consol because they can more than just play games for example i am writing this on my ps3 right now. Its like a computer.

Yes, but why would you do that when you have a computer? PC gaming is still far superior. It's the principle of the thing.

Not realy at the moment the ps3 and 360 surpass most all computers under 400 pound easy. I for one just do not want to fork over 600 pound for somthing that in my opinion will only ever be unsurpassed in strategy games . Now do not get me wrong i love pc games i just think that soon a pc consol hybrid will come out and crush all. ps3 and 360 are only the first step. But if Army of two is worth a consol for is for others to decide.

Yes i am Larkins back as well but since i am so stupid i forgot my password on this account and made a new one. Then remembered my password and came back because i must have confused people. MY BAD
