For months now, I have been hoping for a game that took what CoD4 did and take it a little further. My first hope was with Battlefield Bad Company, which was quickly dashed when I realized how truly boring it was. The same is to be said of Merc 2. It is not bad to look at and the game world itself is rather large. That's where the compliments end though. All of the vehicles handle like rolling bathtubs, the missions are very repetative and quite unamusing after the first half hour. Also, the voice acting wasn't too bad but it was far too repetative as well. The weapons in the game look rather flat and they sound almost as flat. The physics are also way off (Sending someone flying in the air a few stories because I shot them with a machine gun turret for instance). Overall, it was an ambitious game but it didn't live up to the hype. The most entertaining part about Merc 2 is the catchy rap jiggle in the commercial.
The storyline was pretty good but there's just to many glitches and flaws in this game. I can sometimes join people on coop multiplayer and can never connect with friends I've tried everything with my connections with no dice. I don't think I'd rent it again and def wouldn't buy it.
