I see IGN has posted a new preview of the upcoming EA games title “Army of Two” and things have been drastically improved.
There was quite a fuss made last year that the game was delayed as the gameplay was terrible and that it needed to be polished. Well I was lucky enough to be invited to EA Games to give the previous build a try and I can say it was far from terrible. You could see it still needed polishing and there were some annoyances (stupid Tampon game) but apart from that the game was good.
Now that they have polished it a bit more and changed a few things the game is back with the major players for previews and it is sounding much better. Gone is the tampon game, the Hud has been cleaned up some more and the graphics are noticeably sharper.
Unfortunately a large part of the vehicle usage has been removed which is disappointing as I enjoyed that section, I can however agree that it didn’t really flow from run and gun to driving that well.
But overall it is sounding like a much better game and I really do hope when final release comes that it lives up to the hype.
This game has been on my must have list ever since it was first mentioned and I really don’t want to be disappointed.
