Summary: I got this game cause I was like cool a game that is like a mix of uncharted and james bond then I was like oh this game sucks and Then I was like I want to return this because I dont like it is ok but definently not a good game
Summary: This game is fun, and cool with the explosions and airstrikes and such... but thats about it. All flash, no substance. Also their is a ton of bugs, falling through the earth, bugged missions, not being able to 100% the game once certain missions are done.. etc.. Buy grand theft auto, or saints row instead of this. youll thank me.
Summary: I absolutely loved the first Mercenaries. I thought I would love its sequel. But sadly, i was wrong. Sure, at first this game is amazing, beating the original by a landslide. Then, as you progress into the game you begin to notice glitches......at first there are only a couple, then you are being buried in glitches. Things like saves not working, munitions pickups taking 3-4 times to be successful. If I would list them all, it would take the entire review.
Summary: Alright...this game was hyped up and pushed back for almost a year now...and well i guess i was expecting a good game, but thats not what i got. The whole story rides on how Nilson gets shot in the butt, and he wants revenge. So pretty much the story is lame. The explosions look like they did in the first mercs...the shooting is still unsatisfying. The driving mechanics are lame. Basically this game is a watered down version of GTA IV., just without the blood or fun.
Excerpt: "...any experience of the previous mercenaries game and to be honest after an hour or so when the novelty has worn off its no fun anymore its just disappointing because of what it could have been. ...
Conclusion: The game itself is plain and straightforward. Lot's of simple fun to be had. Awesome explosions, a fun play field to explore. Regarding the storyline, if you thought Saints Row 2 were a bit too simple/"single minded" with its enemies and storyline? Oh well, SR2 is Macbeth compared to this. Merc2 is stupid fun. But that can be fun too!
