Operation: Tango has a great central premise; you and a buddy must work together in asymmetrical co-op to complete a globe-trotting set of covert missions. One plays the agent, while the other is the hacker, and you’ll both play an integral role in saving the world from cyber-destruction. You both have different views on a given scenario, so vocal communication is essential in order to get the job done.

The eight missions are nicely varied, and have you doing cool spy stuff like hacking mainframes, dodging lasers, and tracking down targets. The story serves only to provide some slight context to what you’re doing, but the objectives and settings are all interesting and fun. Working out puzzles where you need to truly cooperate — giving each other codes, or guiding the other player through obstacles for instance — is great, and the game excels when you’re both on the same page and deftly thwarting evil plots.
