This is one of those free-form games that lets you do whatever you want until you feel like either getting a mission or looking for one of the 'Deck of 52,' the bad guys in the Korean war. What makes it so fun? For one, you can blow up cars, take out military installations and get money for anything you do to bring peace in Korea. While you're roaming or are in a mission, you can call in a supply ship to give you weapons or ammo or even vehicles. Personally, I like to have a heavy weapons package and whistle 'Tip toe through the tulips' while blowing the living heck out of any enemy I see, without damaging my reputation with another faction, so I can do my mercenary job.

I give this game a 9/10.

now if you've benn depirved of GTA mercenaries should hold you off. devolped by lucas arts. (famous for star wars games)it brings a good al around package. The game foucuses on explosions. the background of the box art says it all. the game is free romeming offering you side missions in between story missions. to earn money are preety good. They don't really foucus on action so there more personile favors to people. or the basic task of driving from point A to point B in less then 2 MIN. the story missons are for 4 differnt factions it is up to you to decide what factions you're going to be nice to, and the factions that consider you hostile who will be more interside in killing you then offering you a mission. after each misson you will recive a email. On a PDA. that tells you where a certin # card (big targets) are. theres a deck of 52 you have to kill or capture. All 52 captureing gives you twice the money. you will foucus on one group of cards them after you kill 12 you go to a of map ace mission the ace misson are 2 to 3 times longer then avarge missions. the game takes about 18-25 hours of single player. But theres a lot to do after the first play through. like
play as 2 other chracters.
compleate side missions.
find blueprints and nationl trasures which are around the map.
and the big thing is after killing the ace of spades. you get to play the game over with new wapons and air stirkes.
