Conclusion: This is a great game, the only downside i saw was that you have to trek up and down the map, but that can all be sorted by either GTC (Grand Theft Chopper) or a call to the Merchant of Menice.
Conclusion: This is a great game. The controls are not quite as tight as GTA. But it looks great, and you often feel like you are in the middle of your favourite war movie, as you watch your support heli coming in low over a nearby building, side-gunners blazing away, while you carry over your latest capture to load aboard. Not a hard game, but plenty to do, and some laugh-out-loud moments of manic destruction.
Summary: I got this game for my birthday after begging and begging my parents for it. I started off playing it years ago on a demo game controlling a swedish guy with a weird hair style and i thought"wow!". It was brilliant! And when I unwrapped it on my birthday i pegged it downstairs and shoved it in the drive! It starts off with you choosing a character out of a lady or two men, and then you start the game.
Summary: I've only played this for a short while but I'm really enjoying it so far: I've already captured my first "card" with a set of really exciting set pieces showing my character handcuffing the bad guy, throwing out a smoke grenade and piling him into a helicopter. The great thing about these scenes is that they are using the in-game graphics engine, creating a cinematic experience but completely seamless with the game play!

Summary: Mercenaries is different to most other war games in that environments are 'fully' destructible. All vehicles are ripe for hijacking and there are a large list of weapons on offer. At least that was what I was led to believe.. Though it is claimed to be a free-roaming game, much of the land is laid out in such a way that higher areas are unreachable by foot, motor vehicle or anything that isn't helicopter-like in appearance (and even then I imagine you'd just slide to the...
Summary: The aim of this game is to make money and buy equipment. To do this, you have to kill or capture your enemies represented by 52 playing cards. You can choose the United Nations, the U.S. Coalition, China, or the Russian Mafia, as you employers, but players decide how to carry out the missions.
Summary: This has the potential to be one of the best games ever. Game Description Brave gamers aim to eliminate a maniacal dictator, for the good of humanity as well as significant monetary compensation from the highest bidder. As its title suggests, Mercenaries puts players in the roles of soldiers for hire, who find ample opportunities for employment as an unexpected menace leads the nations of the world to the brink of disaster.
Summary: Einleitung: Als bekannt wurde, dass der nordkoreanische Machthaber General Song Nuklearwaffen an Terroristen verkauft, entschloss sich der Rest der Welt, einzugreifen: Die Alliierten, Chinesen und Südkoreaner maschierten in Nordkorea ein und errichten dort Stützpunkte. Ihr werdet als Söldner ins Land geschleust, um für die untereinander verschtrittenen Gruppen Aufträg zu erledigen. Das Hauptziel: Findet das "Kartenspiel" der Nordkoreaner!
Summary: Ein Actionspiel für die Microsoft X-Box mag nicht unbedingt etwas Neues sein und auch die Altersfreigabe erst ab 18 Jahren ist heutzutage nicht unüblich, dass ein Titel aus diesem Genre jedoch den Mehrspielerspaß sowohl offline als auch online komplett vernachlässigt, verwundert doch sehr. So geschehen bei "Mercenaries" für die X-Box.
