For those that have an iPhone will more or less have bought this game from the App Store. One word simply describes this game – awesome! In fact, let’s add another 2 – highly addictive! If you haven’t played it yet – go get it!
This game was an overnight success for it’s developers and will be released onto the PlayStation Store for both the PS3 and PSP very soon. So, what is the game about? Well, it’s about a bunch of birds who have anger management issues, who you catapult across the screen to knockout a bunch of pigs. Sounds simple doesn’t it? I’ve wondered many a time that I must be extremely crazy to find such a game enjoyable but it REALLY is just an awesome game!
Ubisoft Montreal’s Jean-Francois Boivin revealed that Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood will be the last of Ezio’s story, and that we can expect an Assassian’s Creed 3 sometime after 2011.
He told Eurogamer yesterday:
I don’t think there’s going to be an Assassin’s Creed in 2011. I think we’re going to let it breathe a bit and really focus on bringing something new and exciting for the next time around. This [Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood] is the end of Ezio’s story. This is it. If we skip a year, I think we’re good. But yeah, I think we could do something really true to the license if we skip a year and release it in 2012 or 2013. We need to keep it fresh though; we need to keep it relatively close by, because we have to keep the interest there. I don’t think we do a service to this license if we pull a Duke Nukem on people, you know what I’m saying? It’s hard to answer.
He went on to say that the Assassian’s Creed team knows in what direction they are going. He told Gamerzines.com that “We know what we’re doing; we’ve had a plan for a long time where this license is going to go.”
I’m in a pickle.
This month I have enough moola to spend on one game. I can buy Army of Two, releasing this week, or I can buy Rainbow Six Vegas 2, due out in the middle of March. I would be buying either of these games primarily for the two player splitscreen co-op modes. I doubt that I would go online with Army of Two, but I might with R6V2, just because I think the game types in R6V2 seem to be more my style. Even then, I doubt that I’d spend much time online there either. (Might as well just pop in CoD4.)
Army of Two is totally built around the co-op experience. And while R6V2 has a co-op mode, it seems like the second is more along for the ride. On the other hand, it looks like R6V2 will probably be a much more polished game with some fun levelling-up to do.
So like I said, I’m in a pickle. Anyone have any thoughts?
Here’s X-Play’s video review of EA’s upcoming Army of Two for the PS3. They note that the parachuting segment that uses the SIXAXIS motion controller wasn’t all that good. Doh! But other than that, they like it.
GameDaily did a review of the 360 version of Army of Two, in case you’re interested. They like it too, give it an 8/10, equivalent to X-Play’s 4 out of 5.
Army of Two is one of those titles that I thought would go the way of Kane and Lynch. Two totally unlikable characters in a game with many problems. But here’s the second review I’ve seen of Army of Two that gives the game props. GameRevolver scores Army of Two really high in almost every category except Replay Value.
They summarize by saying:
Bottom line, EA has created a game that has captured our manhood, and hearts. This is truly a unique title, that has created a whole new way to play games. With any luck, we will see this one hit trilogy status in the next several years, as I just can’t get enough.
That’s pretty much the gist of the other review I saw, which I now forget the location of. Maybe I’ll just have to pick this one up sooner than I expected…
