‘Army of Two’ sequel hits this week

January usually isn’t a big month for new releases, but this week marks the beginning of a nice little run on what should be quality titles.

Leading the way this week is EA’s co-op action game “Army of Two: The 40th Day.” A follow-up to the original “Ao2,” “The 40th Day” looks to refine what was already an enjoyable formula. Gamers again assume the roles of mercenaries Rios and Salem, who must use teamwork and strategy to stay alive while on a mission in Shanghai.

The other title of note releasing this week is Sega’s “Vancouver 2010: The Official Video Game of the Olympic Winter Games,” which features 14 events and an intriguing first-person camera view.
