Summary: i will admit, when i bought this game i didn't have alot of hope. i saw that it was an open world game my heart sunk because i figured it would be a cheap GTA rip off. well, i am pleased to tell you it isn't! alright, let the review begin with the bad: the map is big, but there isn't a heck of a lot to do in it. the voice acting for the characters like the Chinese General is EXTREMELY STEREOTYPICAL! also, you can't kill civilians.
Summary: all I can say is WOW but actually theres more to be said this is awsome in every sence of the word it is such a free play there are hundreds of ways to accomplish each mission there is very littel structure which i like the most. meaning you have control of what you want to do and where you want to go.there is a huge range of assets, weapon and vehicles everything from civilan cars and military jeeps to tanks and helicopters theres no end to your weapons inventory and...
Summary: If you have read any of my reviews you know I am very particular about my games. If the graphics are bad, forget it. If the interface is weird, chuck it. If the storyline is trash, trash it. You would also know that I have much praise to extend to the Zeldas. Now, to say the Mercenaries is 'up there' with the Zelda games is THE best compliment I could give a game. Just so you know, I don't praise games lightly. Mercenaries is the culmination of Xbox games.
Summary: Like the headline says, in my opinion, this is the 2nd best game ever (The 1st best is Halo, 3rd best is Call of Duty). It has a great storyline, great graphics, and it has a pretty long length. The Challenge is pretty good, but you still have a lot of health. It usally takes 2, not 1, RPG shots to kill you. If a car runs over you, you can die.
Summary: I reccomend this game to any and all players. It is long and challenging. This game has a good variety of guns and vehicles. the health system only healing you to 1/5 health makes it have a decent challenge. As far as the sandbox goes this is a top game for it. Also you have a huge variety of missiles that you have an opportunity to use.
This game is for extreme fun-seekers who are looking for something that kills time.

Summary: Shame I don't own this game, because this game is off the hook! This game is an addictive and fun third-person shooter, with realistic graphics, correct difficulty and is a blast to play! The story begins with your character walking around in a plane grabbing his/her equipment, then he/she gets in a jeep then falls out the plane via a parachute. Then you're trying to avoid the North Korean's fire at you. The enemies are simple to beat with your starting weapons.
Summary: Starting out fresh with this game can be really frustrating, with the (too) tight handling of the vehicles especially. Getting used to the weapon system takes a little time also, and the Merchant of Destruction can be a bit confusing at times (don't believe it's even open at the beginning of the game), but after playing it for a couple of hours, and you start unlocking some of the better vehicles and weapon systems (love the satellite-guided bombs), Mercenaries:...
Summary: this game is so great, Ive had it for two years and i am still playing it. its so fun and long. so its worth it to pick it up the graphics are alright but Ive seen better. cars drive realistic enough, the story line needed polishing, but its alright i guess. the action is so intense you will think you are there! and its a sand box game so it has something to offer everyone. plus if you like money lots and lots and of lots of money then this game is defenitly for you.
