Unlike its predecessor Door Kickers which takes itself much more seriously, Door Kickers: Action Squad is a colorful and upbeat side-scrolling action game with a focus on co-op. As you might expect from this type of game, you and your friend will have to shoot up scores of bad guys without getting annihilated yourself, defuse bombs and rescue hostages, use a variety of characters and skills in order to tip the scales, and naturally, kick down doors straight into the faces of your unsuspecting foes.

If you're wondering what this might look like in gameplay terms, allow me to share with you the most recent trailer. Have a gander, it should clue you in quite nicely:

While Door Kickers: Action Squad is a pretty darn enjoyable game, it is worth mentioning that it can often be a bit on the easy side. So if you and your friend are the type of players that like to blaze through levels and never look back, you might find yourself running out of levels far sooner than you would expect. On the other hand, if you love toying around with different characters and completing each level without ever messing up, then Action Squad might just be right up your alley.

Whatever the case may be, I would highly recommend you head on over to the official website or Steam in order to learn more. And if you do decide to get it, have fun!
