  • Excerpt: When you’re talking about development teams with a top-notch back catalogue, your mind immediately jumps to the Far East and the likes of Capcom, Konami, Sega and Nintendo. If not, the likes of Rockstar might come to mind. Few of us, however, would find Pandemic Studios popping into our heads, and that’s a wrong that has to be corrected.

  • Excerpt: When describing Pandemic's Mercenaries , one might think that comparing it to Grand Theft Auto would be likening it to the other mediocre titles that have tried to compete and came up short. But, rather than trying to fall almost directly in line with the modern crime settings, Mercenaries decides to take the "sandbox" gameplay mechanic and place it in a different setting, succeeding at establishing a different experience.
  • Pros: Large gameworld with lots to explore, Tons of main missions, side-missions and hidden items to find, Sound effects do a great job at making the combat feel real, Support items add a good bit of depth and fun to the action
  • Cons: Some of the natural areas feel less than organic, Collision detection issues

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: This is what gaming was like before the bevy of online services hit the streets. Mercenaries just goes to show you how great an awesome single player game can be. A gamer's dream - pick it up for your own good.

  • Conclusion: Visually Mercs is impressive but mixed; stunning explosions, flames, smoke and dust all add to the mayhem as buildings, vehicles and people (just about everything except trees in fact, which won’t be damaged even by 60 tons of tank) get demolished or blown up, you can't fail to form one of those sloppy grins when you cause a chain-reaction explosion of vehicles and fuel tanks and watch them go sky high.
  • Pros: Impressive explosions and physics., The sheer amount of destruction you can cause is amazing., Open-ended or mission-based, it’s up to you.
  • Cons: Like a girl I once fell in love with, Mercs shows you too much at the start and yet takes a few hours to really get going., A co-op mode would have been the coolest thing ever., Special Ops mercenaries who can’t swim? – OH COME OFF IT.

  • Conclusion: Mercenaries est un jeu vraiment réussi qui raviera à la fois les amateurs de massacre comme les fans d'infiltration. Original et varié, le titre permet de changer d'attitude et d'éviter la routine des missions. Les cibles principales, clairement identifiés sur une carte ne constituent que votre but. Tout ce qui concerne la destruction ou le contournement des dispositifs défensifs est à votre charge.
  • Pros: Une grande liberté d'action, un arsenal impressionant, l'interactivité
  • Cons: Quelques limites au niveau du streaming
