Summary: This game has a few bugs and quirks but is really one of the most epic cooperative games available. The graphics have held up pretty well, the draw distance is far, the online mode allows you and a friend to play through the campaign together. You can run relatively far from each other so you both have a sense of freedom as you're tackling missions.
Summary: It is pretty good with everything being destructible. But I had to download some special tool to force triple buffering in order to stop the super lag. That tool made the jump from lag at lowest specs to no to slight lag on highest specs. For anyone wanting to know the tool is D3DOverrider.
Summary: Mercenaries 2 is a great game with 20+ hours of game play. It's not to stressful and it's an open world action adventure. Open world games are the only game's I like to buy, especially good clean fun games. Dark twisted games are depressing. I play games to escape the worries of this world, not have my nose rubbed in them. Game makers need to lighten up. Give me more freedom in a game not mind numbing obstacle's just to make the game take longer to finish.
Wow, this game really is fun. but I wount buy it because of DRM.

Summary: I spent HOURS playing on this at a friend's place & wow this is really really fun. To give you an idea, it's very much like the new farcry, great big map, lots of stuff to do & explore, you never get bored. The interface could have been a bit better, it's definitely a port from a console, but it's not that bad. Actually I'd go as far as saying it's one of the most PC friendly ports I've seen to date, though they did screw us & give us console style saved games.
Summary: To simply answer the question they ask for the review I will start out by saying this one game I am truly glad I invested money into. The graphics where great,and the openness of the game was ever more amazing. The weapons felt life like,but still was able to have that arcade feel to it that many gamers have grown to love over the years.
