Default Army of Two dubbed Army of S*** by Xbox World

Quote:
Games Radar has posted an incredibly damning article about Army of Two from their sister magazine Xbox World. Apparently the magazine had been prepping to review the game -- they had played a near complete beta and were awaiting final code -- when EA decided to put the game back in the oven until next year. According to Xbox World, that was a good choice, but it's probably not going to save the game. It seems the game has no saving graces whatsoever, as the magazine can not come up with a single positive thing to say about it. The article damns everything, especially the plot ("based on some right-wing idea of how great the war on terror is") and characters ("infantile high-fiving redneck jackasses"). In a nutshell: "As it stands, Army of Two is a juvenile swear-fest with clumsy controls, a story apparently penned by a seven year old who hates them ay-rabs, laughable level design that tosses you into a cut-scene every thirty seconds, sub Perfect Dark Zero graphics and the two least likable characters in gaming history." The article concludes that the delay "is a stay of execution" and advises gamers to "Hope for a miracle." Wow, we can't wait for the actual review.

Man, Sounds verbatim to the Kayne & Lynch review.

Sometimes, a hyped game just sucks. It happens. You just have to deal with it.

I'm glad they are being brutally honest, some times these developers need that.

Is it wrong to have a right wing view on war? Is it wrong to have a left wing view on war?

If it's suppose to be absurd, then I'm sure that it's satire.

Anyway, it didn't look that good to begin with. So, nice going EA! Any other shit ideas?

Chow down.

Should be noted that of all the "rabid xbots" that you guys get labelled as, I respect you, KTA, and mid. Only level headed guys of the bunch. But there are times when crow must be eaten.
