Summary: for 10 bucks... if you just want to blow stuff up.. including buildings... its not bad.... the graphics are definatly not gta quality... meaning you wreck a car.. its just gonna blow up maybe turn black.. but for the most part stay in its original form... the plot to the game...
Pros: The game has a great feel to it.. i mean who doesn't want to drive a tank down the road and shoot opposing factions... the story isn't too bad.. In some ways the game is pretty awesome... I i never really played the original..
Cons: Alright it has glitches... Clearly unfinished... The pc version no longer has multiplayer support... meaning no multiplayer servers... meaning no multiplayer at all... but what hurt me is when i played for hours... and got stuck in a rock some how... lost all my progress due to not saving the gam...
Summary: i have a 6000+ with 2 8800's sli'ed im not playing it only cuz its the only game i can play on my pc i play it cuz its a fun game and if you dont have the nices pc its great got it to run on my friends 7300 and its fun runing round with some one in the game
Pros: the game does not look the best but with everything on high, its not that bad i can tell you no ps 2 could play this game on high the pc game is a copy of the xbox 360 game tho, but all and all its not all about how it looks i found the game to be fun and simple and i killed some good time on it ...
Summary: I gave it a 3 because I really like blowing things up. :D
Pros: STuff go boom.
Cons: not a lot of choice for the resolution is really annoying. I am using a 2900xt and at first I was getting 7 to 15 FPS when first installed. I have to modify the game file in order to run it at my resoluiont. (1280 x 1024). Also, the symboles they use instead of keys sucks. If it tells me to do so...
Summary: Mercenaries 2 is the kind of mindless action game that is perfect for killing time - and that's about it. Its respectable graphics and diverse selection of weapons/vehicles makes the game interesting to play, but the numerous flaws and glitches keep this third-person shooter from being truly...
Pros: Fun game play. Like the destructable enviroment. Missons are so so.
Cons: CANT PLAY AT 1680 x 1050, well I never had the currupt save file thing happen to me but I hear thats a huge issue. I've been having a problem where half the time the game freezes my comp. when it starts and i have to restart my pc to get it back.
Summary: Here is what I like: 1.) Huge open world that you can explore and gather resources from and do missions at your own pace and liking. Total map is huge and I mean really big. 2.) You can hijack any vehicle in the game and use it however you wish. The motorcycles are my favorite for transportation.
Summary: Got this game on download and the first thing that hit me is where is the tutorials? Answer there is none well none that actually teach anything. also i bought this on download so no manual for me. so when i did a ahem "helicopter tutorial" i had no idea how to use the winch or if there was one.
