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.
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.
Summary: There's a very short list of games I've pre-ordered and a very short list of games I've straight up returned (only two on each). Mercenaries 2 appears on both of those lists. I went out of my way to get Mercenaries 2 for the same reason 9 out of 10 people did... the freaking commercial! Right?
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.
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.
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?
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.
Summary: Could have been a good game but its bugs and glitches let it down big time and in the end are its downfall due to this its not a enjoyable game at all sadly and as you play more that becomes increasingly more evident unfortunately it just ends up being another rushed ea game with a lot of wasted...
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.
Summary: OK, forget comparisons to GTA IV, this game is nowhere near that level of emersion or quality. A more accurate parallel can be found in comparison to 'Just Cause'. In fact, so close are the parallels, that I had a strong sense of Deja-vu when playing it.
