My review of Army of Two: The 40th Day is up now at thephoenix.com. I liked the first one well enough, but mostly I thought if the sequel could fix what I didn't like, then it could be something approaching great. Instead, The 40th Day eliminates what worked before, retains what didn't, bungles the play control, and ultimately doesn't work on any level. Too bad.
I wrote this review two weeks ago, and at the time had some more to say about it, but then I broke my elbow and had surgery and have endured a pretty rotten time of it, so now I can't remember what any of that was. Fortunately, I'm in the recovery phase now, and starting to feel okay. My arm is in a huge splint, but I can both type and play video games, so I'm hoping that next week I'll be able to start the machine back up. I'm not even sure what I should play. Probably No More Heroes 2.
