Mercenaries is my number two on my list of best games. C4 to Rocket launchers you have it all. Its long game but it is really fun i had a blast. and you don't have to do a mission all the time you can just walk around kill people and blow stuff up. highly recommend this game to buy and rent this game was just awesome. -bostonfan
This game is very fun and interesting to play. The whole charge in shooting strategy is good in the first fourth of cards, but after that you need to start using strategy. There are ways to complete the game without having someone hate you, besides the North Koreans, they always hate you.
The weapons are great, the graphics are very good for a 3rd person shooter. The terrain is a lot of the same but thats what you expect when you are fighting in the same area in a single country.
A little tip, when doing a mission that involves allied factions, try to snipe from a distance and don't let anyone see you. Its very, very hard but possible. As long as your good enough.
This game is very much like the Grand theft Auto Series. Only you have a better excuse to be violent, because the story is set in a war zone. This "sandbox game play" lets you take on a variety of tasks for warring factions while looking for key members of a fallen regime. Although the main advertisements called for blowing everything up, that isn't always the best idea. You could snipe, gun down, or run over any of your targets, but it is always best to capture them, as twice the amount of money is awarded. I have rented this game on multiple occasions and it has never left me with a feeling of disappointment. Choosing between 3 mercenaries (all of them speak a secondary language, besides english and with different special abilities) and hundreds of weapons and vehicles, this game will offer hours upon ours of enjoyment to anyone.
