Mercs 2 is a pretty fun game. I would say a definte rental at least.
It has a GTA4 playstyle, open world, ability to do what you want when you want, etc. The story is lacking but who really needs a great story for a game like this anyways. Not a whole lot to say about it. Solid gameplay, good graphics, ok story. Some of the missions were a lot of fun, rescuing an American pilot and co-polit from Chinese forces was very entertaining to me lol. Also obtaining special items from the different factions makes you have to befriend pretty much everybody at some point, can't just pick one faction and play the whole game that way. Bunker busters, artillery strikes, air strikes are all amazing to watch, but there was a fairly decent amount of bugs in the game which were annoying at times. Not game breaking but definetly annoying. Getting stuck in between 2 small rocks while getting shot at is not fun. Wish they had Co-op on the same system would have maybe made the game a bit better. But all in all a good solid game and lots of fun. Worth a try for sure!
Electronics Arts really outdone themselves on Mercenaries 2. All I can say is that it's one majorly wicked game! Bombs, guns, and millions of dollars as you hunt down the most hated president of Venezuela.
You'll find a bunch of contacts that will help you work to gain money. And you may also find a bunch of bombs along the way too. Pick out as many weapons as you need to BLOW STUFF UP!!!
If your a person who likes blowing stuff up and a lot of it, you HAVE to rent this game.
My opinion is this game could have been alot better.The graphics were decent; the water looked good and the vehicals were alright but the vz soldiers and faction members were horrible and the explosions were the same as the fist merc.. and the disapointing bomb you get in the end should have been alot bigger and more detailed. although the light flash after the bombs goes off is good but its just as repetitive as the first i give it a 7 out of 10.
