All around bash that's a the best "Kaboom" for your buck!
6 March 2014
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: 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.
Summary: The guy who sold this to me called me about the problem I as having and helped me. I quickly deleted my original rating and now I am writing this one about the product. Very impressed about the satisfaction part of the seller, and the game is also a blast to play.
Summary: Mercs 2 is a good game, but laggy and sometimes unreliable when trying to connect with friends, after the main campaign has been "won" there is little left to do.This game is great to kickback and call in a nuclear bunker buster but don't be surprised if you get cheated out of an achievement.
Summary: I have played the Chinese against the UN. I have, at my whim, subverted Venezuelan revolutionaries, kidnapped and executed executives, run tanks through VZ government palaces and exploded oil platforms. I have launched missiles at reinforced bunkers, chased gunboats through minefields, and dropped shipping containers on the heads of civilians from black helicopters. I have hijacked troop transports, destroyed historic castles and run guns for Jamaican pirates.
Summary: I had this game for a year and a half and I loved it. Yes it is not GTA: IV but it is still fun. I also had the first one for the orginal Xbox. The only issue I had with it is when I went to go stick in last week it wouldn't let me play it. All in all it is a great game and I strongly recommend going out and buying it.
Summary: This is one of the most fun games I have ever played. It does have it's problems, which is why I gave it 4 stars. It has a problem where it loads (keep in mind this does not happen the first few times), and tries to connect to EA servers, then freezes and you must shut the XBOX off and start over, without connecting to Xbox Live. It plays just fine offline. Or, you can load the game, then once playing, pause and connect.
Summary: This game might not have the best graphics, and there are a few bugs and glitches, but I have had nothing but fun with this game. It's straight forward and easy to play but still offers up a few challenges. I did have a few freeze ups when connected to xbox live, but I don't plan on playing on live anyway. It's pretty open ended and there isn't one "right way" to complete missions which allows for some freedom of play style. For under 20 dollars it was definitely worth.
Summary: A Fun Yet Unrealistic Expeirence I'm pretty sure a game about blowing the crap out of anything you want sounds fun. But that's all this game has to offer. The story is nothing interesting although it's humorous. A revenge story because you didn't get paid AND got shot in the ass. The story is pretty lengthy but some times it feels like a sense of de ja vu as you protect yet another stronghold or protect some thing important to finding information.
Very fun game! but could have been better. Worth it if it was under $15.

Summary: This is a fun game but there are some things that make the fun factor go a little down. First of all one of my major upset is that there is no parachute, so if your helicopter explodes in midair your going to have to wait until you fall down helplessly, then miraculously survive a 800ft fall with 1 health left literally.
