GAME DOES NOT WORK

Summary: This is a truly awesome game, but there is only one current problem with it which makes it literally unplayable. EA no longer runs the servers that the game links to at the very beginning, so you CANNOT PLAY IT. Do not buy this game, as excellent as it is. You will not be able to play it beyond the character set-up screen. And Yes, I tried this with multiple CDs....
Summary: Great title, I've certainly sunked many hours into this game. If you like Vikings, and blowing sh*t up, this is the game for you, because it has plenty of that, and then more. The dialogue is ridiculously poor, but it adds a certain character to the game. This game add's alot of creativity to blowing things up. To calling a air strike on a bunker, or driving around in a sports car mounted with rockets. This is a mindless 3rd person shooter, with nonstop action.
All around bash that's a the best "Kaboom" for your buck!

Summary: Gameplay is reminiscent of "Grand Theft Auto." This is a super fun, shoot up, complete missions for cash all around bash that's the best "Kaboom" for your buck. One disappointment is that your Merc will not be an expert marksman. Totally understand that holding down the trigger on an automatic weapon will affect accuracy. However, single shots should always be on target. In this game, 9 times out of 10, trigger discipline is not rewarded with center mass kill shots.
Summary: They said disc only but it was a great price so I bit. I was expecting some old semi scratched up disc. To my surprise it was good as new. No scratches it was just a disc in one of those rental type cases. The unlabeled black case stuff like from Blockbuster. I recommend them. They are legit.
By now, it's $5 used...all that for $5...you cannot go wrong!!!

Summary: The follow-up to the best free roaming third-person title on the original Xbox, Mercenaries 2 for Xbox 360 delivers more of the greatness gamers were expecting. Gameplay: Let me start by saying that the same three characters - The American soldier, Swede Toughguy and the Stealthy lady - are back! Following that up with the map area being 150% larger just makes this one irresistible title!
Summary: I was a huge fan of the original Mercenaries game and I can honestly say that World in Flames does a great job of carrying on the legacy of the original. I enjoyed this game from beginning to end. The random lines that the characters say are hilarious, the gameplay is exceptional (not great, but okay), and the story is pretty darn good. What honestly makes the game is all of the destruction and chaos you can create.
Enormous potential is sadly left unrealized in many ways, and niggling issues muddy the waters

Summary: Positives: - Money is far more abundant, the player no longer needs to be frugal - Support Items can now be added to the support 'wheel' from a large stockpile of items, allowing the player to build up a surplus without overflowing their interface - The handling of wheeled vehicles is far more responsive and satisfying, and each vehicle actually seems to have a suitably weighty feel - Weapons in general are more satisfying.
