Summary: Alert! Sounding the Alarm! That big gun should take care of this! I'm on the enplaced weapon! Cover me, I'm sounding the alarm! Cover me I'm going for that weapon! -A single VZ soldier, over the course of about 30 seconds.
Pros: Fun, when it works. Pretty environment.
Cons: Glitchy. NPCs repeat themselves continuously (see below). Missions come in two styles: Super Easy or annoyingly difficult, and the best tactic is often to simply fly in with a helicopter, bomb the hell out of everything, then come back and clean up. In fact, it works TOO well.
Summary: Game plays great for an open level far cry 2 style play, but dontplay it on PC unless you have a disgustingly high end machine. This game requires 3gb cpu, 3.0 model shader, direct x 9.0, a video card that you cant get with a machine thats older than 3 or so years. Game is fun to play but save your money and get it in ps2,ps3,xbox.
Summary: This game is a GTA clone in the end. Mercs will always be GTA like. I like the ability to hijack vehicles. I think this franchise is headed in the right direction in these ways. That said, this game is repetitive and a little boring. It is fun to nuke stuff, but that doesn't make a great game. This game is buggy out the wazzoo and the interface is lacking both in-game and out. It feels like a beta, but it is for sure far from a quality where todays games should be.
Summary: i cant wait for my stalker clear skys to arrive...
Pros: it doesnt kick you desktop during install
Cons: it looks like a game i played in 2004 ... hence the graphics.. i have a 2900xt and its on medium settings and still laggy... it loves my desktop.... kool part is that in one mission when i blow something up it appears a tank there...buy it for a console not pc
Summary: To be fair it was a good idea, like many games start out to be. Its all about the delivery and this one don't got it! I am an avid FPS player and do my best to give a game a chance,, this one took about 20 minutes :(
Pros: It gets 2 eggs cuz I like blowing stuff up. Thats it!
Cons: Let me put it to you short and sweet,.. Its like the designers got half way through production and said.."Well its got the EA name on it so, good enough" If I wanted a PS2 game I'd go to the thrift store and get 3 for $20. At max res and max settings it looks ancient. I expect more from a company like EA and I think you all should too.
Summary: What a disappointment, I thought Merc 1 was a game that never got a fair shake by people and was never recognized for its well crafted game play and sandbox environments. I thought this time they(pandemic studios) would be able able to receive the praise they deserve for there hard work this time.
Pros: Sequel to one of my favorite Xbox games of all time, now with new modes of play new weapons, vehicles and even the Co-op mode left our of the original!
Cons: This game was clearly rushed to market before Beta was complete. Major issues include but are not limited to, Broken AI (enemy's some times don't shoot at you even if you shoot them), Glitched menus (I didn't have enough spaces to fit my EA ID in), and a buggy save system (all saves are corrupt, in my case even my auto save). Other problems I've herd of are people not able to get into co-op after many try's and new copes of the game.
