Mercenaries 2: World in Flames

Playstation Illustrated
11 November 2008
  • Excerpt: Mercenaries 2: World in Flames is the videogame equivalent of a Michael Bay movie. There are numerous technical issues and the story leaves a lot to be desired, but after a few massive explosions, everything seems right in the world. The best way to grasp the game's scope is by jacking a helicopter and taking an aerial tour of the country. Once you're in the air, you'll begin to notice that Mercenaries 2 manages to look great and okay at the same exact time.

  • Excerpt: Switching hands from LucasArts to Electronic Arts, Pandemic's epically destructive Mercenaries brand has finally arrived onto the next-generation consoles with a sequel that stars the original cast of three. Initially planned for a release in Fall 07, the game ultimately underwent 10 months worth of delays, but it's better off for it. When we first played Mercenaries 2 at E3 07, the game was noticeably early and running poorly.

  • Conclusion: Despite its many issues, Mercenaries 2 provides a solid experience. With its open world environments, plethora of vehicles and weaponry, Mercenaries 2 provides several instances of non-stop action.

Considering you can pick up this game brand new for $19.99, it’s definitely worth your time and money.

  • Excerpt: Pandemic decided to once again go the semi-realistic route with basing the game in Venezuela two years in the future, something that country has not been very happy about and have vocally said so. “This is a game after all, who cares?” we might say, although once again Allied Nations (or the “USA” the soldiers are happy to call it before correctly themselves) and the People’s Republic of China show up a good deal into the game to add to the factions and the whole...

  • Summary: In the world of videogames, there are few things more satisfying than a big bastard explosion. And as Mercenaries 2 is all about razing a virtual Venezuela to the ground, there’s rarely a dull moment in this dynamite quest. Best described as GTA with airstrikes, the adventure sees players cruising across a sprawling world where absolutely everything can be destroyed, all the time playing various factions off against each other and completing missions to earn the cash for...
