So I was skimming through the latest EGM (Issue 210), when lo and behold, I come across a preview about Crossfire. Along with Army of Two and Kane & Lynch: Dead Men, this trio of games make-up the genre of buddy games. With all the advances in technology the gaming industry produces year after year, it floors me that it took them this long to produce games that are coöperative by design, where the single-player mode is the alternative rather than the default. Unfortunately in this initial release, the number of players are limited to two. My gaming buddies and I would love to have more coöperative, adventure/action games. At least this budding genre gives me hope.
