Not so Good

Summary: Im not going to give this one star because the disc was actually good, but i would recommend you stay away from this game because of the online connections issues. The game actually froze every time I tried to play it. I had to sign out, start a new game, and then sign back into x-box live to get back to my saved game.
Summary: This is a great game with a huge variety of fun vehicles, heart-racing air-dropped bombs/missiles, and interesting weapons. The single-player is a long trip and it's a fun one with a constant stream of new weapons and vehicles unlocks. The destructible environments can't be beat either. Don't want to go through the front gate to that base? That building in your way? Then knock it down with a few anti-tank rounds, let the dust clear and charge in!
Summary: !!Possible Spoiler Alert!! If you like to see things go BOOM, than this may be a game for you, if not than your time is better spent watching Seinfeld reruns. Mercenaries 2 offers an underperforming story with bad AI and a truckload of bugs. Considering the hype this game had EA and Pandemic should be Just as a note, I believe all games should in part be judged based on their predecessors.
Summary: You'll be excited for the first hour or so, and then you'll realize you're not having fun shooting anyone, the explosions are getting old, you don't have any interest in the storyline and there's not enough for you to do to escape the mindless "blow this up, capture him, race this car" missions. The airstrikes are almost impossible to pull off without using your health and they're about as accurate as a dart thrown by a blind guy.
Summary: To summarize my feeling of the game, the ending non-cinematic of the game is a series of correctly timed button taps. Who on earth would wrap a game up with a combination of shoulder button, a, b, d-pad up? It makes no sense, whereas the prequel had an epic battle, this game ended with a feeling that the designers were bored of the game.
Half baked and half as good as the first mercs game.

Summary: Ok let me get one thing across before I break it down. There is a good game in here its just not finished. Its a good concept but they just didnt get it done even after over two years of developement heres the GOOD and the BAD. The Good If you love explosions this is your game. You can blow up everything, and I mean everything in the game. Music is solid. Online Co-op works well. Wide array of vehicles and bombs. The Bad Sub-par ghraphics. Repetitive missions.
Only go if you love sandbox style games but dont expect GTA or saints row

Excerpt: Merenaries 2 (or Mercs 2) is the a 3rd person sandbox style game set in a war torn venezuela. The game has you fighting as one of 3 mercs with slight differences betweem the 3. You start of as a training mission to free a general but then betrayed and spend the rest of the time hunting for revenge. The story is by no means praiseworthy but it does the job to get the game going.
Excerpt: There are so many 'sandbox' open world type games at the moment that it's really quite hard to keep track of them all. The trend started off really with the original Grand Theft Auto, and has grown ridiculously to encompass futuristic games, modern military sims, fantasy RPGs, even platformers.... When it first came out a few years ago the first Mercenaries was the bees knees.
Excerpt: Tanto tempo fa sulla vecchia generazione di consoles, uscì un ottimo sparatutto in terza persona chiamato Mercenaries, il titolo ovviamente ci metteva al comando di un soldato mercenario che doveva catturare una lunga serie di terroristi identificati dai ...
Pros: Purtroppo nessuno
Cons: Parecchi Bugs / A . I . dei nemici pessima / nessuno stimolo per giocarlo
