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..
Summary: Mercenaries 2 is the poster child for a flawed gem. Whether or not you can tolerate the flaws will dramatically impact your view of the game. That's part of the reason why review scores for Mercs 2 are all over the spectrum.
Summary: Mercs is a great game if you can get it to work, but since EA closed the studio that made it, it's been horribly neglected to the point where when it tries to connect to EA servers at start-up, the whole game freezes. You have to disconnect from the PSN in order to play it.
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.
Summary: Imagine a game with a huge, open world filled with dozens of unique vehicles and attacks that let you cause mass destruction whenever and wherever you choose. Now, toss in game-crippling bugs, brain-dead AI, unsatisfying gunplay, a lousy story, and repetitive missions.
Summary: Oh so repetitive. Every thing in this game seems to repeat about every 3 mins. Its like having 1 track on an mp3 and listening to it over and over again. The mercs repeat the same few lines when ever you pick up ammo. They say things that dont fit in to the situation and the NPC's do the same.
Summary: Ich kann mich nur meinen Vorredner mit negativen Rezensionen anschließen. Ohne mich groß über die miserable Grafik auf PS2 Niveau auslassen zu wollen, finde ich das Gameplay einfach nur schlecht, ob grafisch oder spielerisch darf man dieses Spiel niemals mit Titeln wie GTA4 auch nur im entferntesten...
