I'm getting this game. It look amazing. I played the demo and it was fantastic.
The game is VERY realistic. For instance, if you shoot a guy in the leg, he'll either shake it off, or go down. He'll still be on his back and shooting you, so you need to be extra careful. Bodies also don't just do some ridiculous and fake looking death animation, they just drop where they are realistically, and even have their guns with them until they hit the floor.
You can also use the old Army of Two strategy of portable cover... car doors, riot shields, even utility box covers.
Perhaps the BIGGEST and NEWEST thing is the customization. You can customize your own masks and armor for different looks. You can also modify your weapons. Interchange weapon parts with different weapons.. for example. An AK-47 barrel on the G-36c, or vice versa. Except you can do it with MANY of the parts. Gun stocks, grips, magazines, suppressors. The list goes on.
There are also new gameplay features. A player can feign his death if he's getting too much aggro, transferring it to his partner. This allows him to jump up unexpectedly and waste his enemies from the side.
If you walk in on a group of enemies, you can do a fake surrender. Put your hands up, and go on your knees. Your partner can sneak around to a good flanking position, and while they're focusing on the surrendering person, you can pump 'em full of lead. The person surrendering can also do a "quick-draw", pulling up his pistol quickly and shooting them down.
It's just... awesome.
