It seems wrong somehow to see such a new game drop in price so quickly, especially when it's actually pretty decent but I hear gift horses don't like it if you look at their mouths.
Gameplay are currently selling The 40th Day for the awesome price of £23.99 for either console. This gives you a nice £4 saving as the next best price for either version is £27.99 from Shop To (360, PS3).
Continuing where the original Army of Two left off, The 40th Day stars military contractors Tyson Rios and Elliott Salem who find themselves in the midst of a desperate battle for survival when a routine mission in Shanghai goes a little haywire. Frankly you don't need to know too much about the plot as it is basically just an excuse for a whole lot of brutality and violent silliness.
Army of Two: The 40th Day is no masterpiece but it sure is a lot of fun, especially when you take on the action in multiplayer co-op mode. It's almost reminiscent of a gung-ho buddy/action flick: all brawn and big guns. Despite this, the game is somewhat darker in tone than the original game and involves real moral decision making that can often have far reaching long term consequences. It's pretty short but there's plenty to see you coming back for more and with an asking price of less than twenty five quid, you're bound to think that it's money well spent.
