I don't get the hate for Army of Two.
I really liked the first game despite it's shortcomings. I liked the light-hearted vibe, the varied scenarios around the globe, the gunplay with the neat aggro-system, the coop-systems (drag and shoot), and yes, I also liked the fist-bumping, the gun-pimping etc.
You guys are taking it way too seriously. It's the equivalent to an 80s action movie. Switch off your brain and shoot the bad guys, that's all. And if you didn't like the way they handled the controversial "PMC" issue... here's a spoiler from the first game: it turns out the PMC guys you were working for are the bad guys. So there's that.
The second game, 40th Day, in comparision, was way too grim-dark and serious for my taste. And this reboot looks even more serious and way too similar to the current crop of military shooters. THIS is why I'm pissed about this announcement. I wanted an even more bro-fun and ridiculous shooter. That's the direction they should've taken with this franchise instead of making it even more "mature" and "gritty". Who wants more of that?
