Don't bother with this crummy game.

Summary: Lots of good games out there; but this is one one of them. Like they say in New York; "fagetaboudit!"
Cons: Lousy graphics, storyline and gameplay. Poor weapon targeting simulation. You have to press mouse 1 to bring up the targeting reticle, and it often lets off a shot before you aim. Hard to tell how much ammo you have; the info disappears and reappears mysteriously. Vehicles are twitchy and nearly ...
Summary: This game is pure garbage. Glad I only paid a dollar and change plus a couple dollars shipping. I still want my money back, including shipping, Amazon. The game might not be defective, but the designers sure were! Got this game based on one reviewer who gave a VERY extensive review.
Summary: yuck! i bought this game for a couple hundred pennies and i totally wasted them! the original mercs ROCKED and i therefore gambled when i saw the cheap price tag. the old adage of 'you get what you pay for' has never been more true. save your pennies and get a delicious ice cream cone or something.
Pros: some of the holdover gameplay concepts from the original price??? maybe?
Cons: controls are terrible... settings customization is terrible... graphics are terrible... ai is terrible... regular glitches are constant and terrible... etc.
Summary: Dont buy this game. You'll say just like I did, "Wow, just five dollars. I guess I'll give it a shot", only to be dissapointed after the long install. I installed it...played it for about 2 hours (2 hours because I was waiting for it to get better), and uninstalled it shortly thereafter.
Pros: None. Not even the price. Well, i guess EA had good ideas for the game, but ideas dont really count, do they?
Cons: The game was 5 dollars, and quite frankly, not worth it. Where do I begin...AI, horrible. Through the first whole mission, I could stand right in front of the enemy and they wouldnt do anything except say, "the enemy is near! the enemy is near!" it got really annoying and pointless. The driving i...
Summary: Do NOT buy this game. Take a moment to do a random search of this game (go ahead, I'll wait) and you'll find the consensus is the same throughout the world wide web. Stalling due to poor FPS, system freezing, choppy sound, poor graphics, inability to increase graphic settings... you name it.
Pros: Eye catching description of the game on the box.
Cons: - Hardware requirements are far too specific and uncommon. (3.0ghz duel core processor MINIMUM.) - The average gaming PC to even many advanced PC's will NOT be able to run this game. - Video clipping and save game functions are extraordinarily buggy. Patch did little to alleviate these and many o...
Summary: EA is shutting down online support because supposedly too few players play it, WHEN MANY PLAYERS CAN'T EVEN LOG ON TO PLAY IT IN THE FIRST PLACE! I wish I had not just bought this from NEWEGG a few days ago.
Pros: NONE! EA must DESPISE its paying customers!
Cons: Online servers for this game are to be SHUT DOWN on March 16, 2010! Along with MANY other EA PC and console games they recently stopped supporting! This game was ONLY released on September 3, 2008 according to one large retailer! EA gobbled up and ate the company that made it, PANDEMIC, and now t...
Do not buy this game. Spend your money on good food & resturants.

Summary: I bought this used at game stop for 9.99, I would have been better off spending the money on a chinese buffet.
Pros: Box art.
Cons: This is the worse game I have ever played. I would rather play a SNES game than this. I have a 9500 gt and it runs really sloppy on it. My 9500 gt runs crysis just fine with some things on high and somethings on medium. Now lets get to the technical review. - Game is really choppy - Graphics look...
Pros: Nice cover and pictures on the back and menu screen. Also I just bought this today and I already uninstalled it. But newegg still rocks!
Cons: Pretty much everything. For a game released this recently, it looks like it was a 1998 PC game, I believe the AA doesn't work at all. I have a xfx nvidia geforce 9500gt 1gb which runs cod4 and cod5 and left 4 dead at max just fine but this game has some kind of problem with good components, laggy...
