Army of Two Video Review

The review highlights just how good the co-op is.  That is, playing with a friend yields rewarding gameplay and re-playability.  Playing with the AI is just downright frustrating at times.   One thing many people might not realize is the level of customization available in the game, whether it's customizing your characters appearance, or customizing a weapon to use.

"Competition is fun, but it's just as fun to do teamwork," said Nick Puleo, founder of Co-Optimus, a Web site devoted to cooperative gaming. "Co-op is more of a positive thing than going around and killing the other team. It's built around a story or an objective that you can accomplish together."

Rainbow Six Vegas 2 Co-Op Details

In co-op play, the “host” plays as Bishop and handles command of the squad, while the “guest” plays as Knight and rides shotgun (perhaps literally), having limited interaction with the AI squad mates. Of course, full squad control is available, so all the things you can get your AI mates to do in the single-player side—stack up on a door, the various “XX-and-clear” options, toss smoke or frag grenades, etc.—can also be commanded in the co-op component.

As we've said before, it's disapointing because the game has gone from a 4 player to a two player co-op experience. The good news though is everything seems tightly focused now, instead of an afterthought. Some other pluses is that both players get an even share of experience and rewards, as well both players share any unlocks earned in co-op mode. Rainbow Six Vegas 2 hits the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 later this month.
