  • 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.

No Thanks EA!

Matthew B., Newegg
10 September 2008
  • 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...

Bad Q and A

William G., Newegg
7 September 2008
  • 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, ...

  • Summary: A game with truly great potential, I fully expected this to well in the high 8s and low 9s. Most critics will have knocked a few points off for lack of polish, but in my experience of the game its lacking more than just the polish, the game simply isn't finished.

  • Summary: I bought this game without much expectation, due to the fact it is a very old game and new graphics etc. make it look even worse.

Mercenaries 2: World In Flames (PC)

Mikkel, cdon.dk

  • Summary: Spillet virker meget godt, dog er det en stor fejl at man ikke kan spille det online. Den vil ikke lade mig få forbindelse til Ea's sever til spillet. Så alt det med Multiplayer og co-op kan ikke bruges. Det samme gælder min ven som også købte spillet.

Nicht empfehlenswert

  • Summary: Ich habe das Spiel gebraucht gekauft und kann es nicht mehr aktivieren. Das Spiel startet, danach wird bei mir der Monitor weiß. Ich habe eine ATI Radeon HD 3870 Grafikkarte. Raus geschmissenes Geld. Deshalb eine schlechte Beurteilung.

  • Summary: Riktigt dåligt spel som inte håller måttet alls. Det både ser sämre ut och spelas sämre än tex Just cause om man nu ska jämföra de 2 spelen. Fiende AI:n är lika dålig som man brukar se i flera budgetspel ute på marknaden ,visst man kan ha sönder en hel del saker och det ser rätt okej ut men man...
