Rated 9 out of 10 by N/A Personal Good Overall But...
I recently bought mercenaries a month or two ago and I loved it for the most time then I started to see some bugs including say there's a wooden crate in front of you and you use melee it moves about a foot away then you go to a shipping container and guess what the same thing next the sound depending on character you use you will here the same lame lines over and over and over again . when I first started call me stupid threw a grenade at a building expecting it to blow up it didn't then I laid down c4 and boom the building crumbled to the ground leaving a pile of scrap metal then after a few more building drops I notice a every crumble is the same :( . Now AI now there pretty dumb some stand in front of you shooting until dead then some hope in a vehicle and try too run you over. I am not saying to not buy this game a enjoyed and am enjoying it overall a great game if you want gta for teen players and don't mind the lame lines and stupid AI a great game I recommend it to those people.

Rated 9 out of 10 by Star Wars FREAK! next gta
because i do not know what you like i will tell u wahat I liked about this game. First of all, there is a lot of boom. every where you go and every mision you do u will blow stuff up. wether it be a building or a helecopter or car. Second, this is very alike to the great game franchise grand theft auto. Its because you can freeroam without anything you have to do. also, you can hijak anything like cars helicopters and tanks. This game takes place in north korea and there are many places to go and many ways to get there. One of the greatest features of this game is that you choose from three people to go through the whole game with. You choose from a strong sweedish man with a blond mohawk. He helps your speed. Then, there is an african-american from america who helps your stamina and defense. Finally, there is a half chinese half british girl who helps you be stealth, wich i dont get and find no use for. Overall i think you should get this game because you will LOVE it!!
Rated 9 out of 10 by Gothockey7 Good Game
Mercenaries was one of the better games I have played during my ps2 playing time . This game plays like a GTA game and many critics thought this would be some cheap war rip off. I was skeptical getting it but the second I started this it was action packed and right to the point. My favorite part of the game is the grand explosions and the free roam and the vehicles are fantastic. Driving around in the vehicles feels like what it should for the type of vehicle that your in. The explosions in Mercenaries could not be bigger, you can feel some adrenaline every time you blow something up. The one disappointing things is just how the grenades act their a little ugly but that is not a reason to not get this game. You will be driving hummers, Tanks, helicopters and every thing in between. you will also be able to order extra supplies or vehicles along with air strikes up to the size of a atom bomb. Bottom line this game is one of the best war games out there for the ps2.

I sold this game about 2 years ago and I'm Really starting to regret selling it. I just decided to right a review on this game since me and my friend on xbox live were talking about it. First of all gameplay is so AAAMMMAAAAZIIING! You don't even have to beat that many missions to start free roaming all around the map. This map is around the size of the Wasteland from Fallout 3 so its a pretty big map. The graphics look not the best but that's what makes this game amazing! I say that this game is better than Modern Warfare 2 because i really think that it is TRASH! Don't get MW2 I would rather get MW1 because they don't have all the horrible perks. Basically this game is BEASTY-LICIOUS! I could have made this review way shorter but I couldn't because this game is pretty amazing so that pretty much raps up my review so go out and get this game for your PS2! I also recommend the game Shadow of the Collosus it's a very great adventure game!
Rated 10 out of 10 by mercenariescraz Just a great game
if you love shooter games you"ll love this game. this game combines so many elements of various games in one. In this game you can do missions, kill the bad guys or if you want to have a little fun just explore the world. the world isn't huge but its good size. the weapons are overall good but they could have had a wider weapons range that you can use. now if you use the cheats that are online you will get 100 percent out of the game but if you don't than you might not find it as fun. now since you are somewhat interested in this game which you are other wise you would not be reading this you should buy the game. this truly is the best ps2 game they have ever made. i have a lot of ps2 games and this one is the best. you will never get bored of this game. i have been playing this game for two years and im not bored. there is always something to do or something to destroy. And best of all there is the biggest vehicle range ever in any game there is about any type of vehicle that you can drive in this game. i am not kidding there are so many things you can drive or fly.
Rated 10 out of 10 by J_M Awesome Game, minor difficultys
Great game, if you don't have a ps3 yet you should get this game. awesome game a lot like GTA, But there is some things that are troubleing about it. It's a little hard to understand Mattias. sometimes he mumbuls or it sounds like he's humming or something when he's supposed to be talking, and you can't swim and there isn't boats, but other then that gameplay is great so you shouldn't really notice those things. Fun game. big selection of cars and weapons. if you liked this game you would like number 2 for the ps3. the ps2 version of mercs 2 isn't good at all, it has a bigger space but nothing else is good about it, mercs 2 for ps3 is good, not as good as merc 1 but still good. it has better graphics and cars and weapons and bigger space and you can swim, anyway if you liked this game mercs 1 you'll like mercs2. Mercs 1 is a great game and you should check it out

This is one of my all time favorite games for every system I have played. For the PS2, the graphics are awesome! If you are looking for something new, go with mercenaries. The explosions are epic and the gameplay is great! You can run around and do practically anything! It is war to the MAX! Stealing helicopters, tanks, and practically anything that makes you happy provides endless hours of explosive fun! Did I mention the portable air strike? BOOM! Take out buildings and anything else (besides trees..., Why is that?) That makes you happy. Making friends with the Mafia is a blast too. With the merchant of menace, you can create a powerful, unstoppable force with your tanks, RPG's, and the infamous street sweeper, the machine gun that will take out buildings, and even tanks! Hope this review has been helpful to everyone. Thanks for reading!
Rated 10 out of 10 by Starcraft owns Amazing
This is one of the funnest games I have played in a while. It's basically like Grand Theft Auto but in a war. It is really easy for the first part and then gets extremely difficult. There are hundreds of cars, helicopters, tanks and more vehicles that you can have fun driving around in. One of my favorite things about the game is that there are many countries involved. Say you are doing a mission for South Korea. The mission might say to attack a Chinese base. This is when it gets tricky. For every country involved, there is a bar that indicated your relation to them. Ex: Friendly, unfriendly, allied, hostile. If you attack that Chinese base, China may become hostile making the game much tougher. So basically stealth is the key to much of this game. Overall, If you are looking for a fun, action-packed game, Mercenaries is the way to go.
Rated 10 out of 10 by dkelly256 Best game to come to playstation 2
Personally this game offers more than any current PS2 Grand Theft Atuo. This game has more guns,more explosions and just a better overall game! The land mass is HUGE and not even counting the second location! there is so much area that you can get lost explore for days not forgetting there are plenty of secret military bases that you can bomb any time via helicopter with the allies or if you prefer a tank or just bomb it with a nuclear bomb either is your choice! This is got to be THE best game to ever come to the playstation. Although I did expect more from the second one this one is by far BETTER than the newer one 100% it has triple the space and triple the story line and missons, this is a game that you can not complete is just one day! not forgetting the graphics are 10X better than GTA: SA
Rated 9 out of 10 by BurdenOnSociety Great game overall!!
Mercenaries is a great game, the interactivity with environment is surprisingly amazing, the gameplay and controls are kinda basic. The thing bugged me was that when you lay a C4 on the ground near a building it explodes and the building disappears same with all the other buildings the debris is the same for each one. The characters and their little catchphrases were annoying because they only had like 7 and would repeat them over and over. But the thing that I enjoyed was mainly the freedom of weapons and the very large maps, you could just pick up a weapon after you killed the person unlike most games where its a fifty-fifty shot to be able to just pick up a weapon, but the vehicles had very good handling and realistic steering, the helicopters I was sorta displeased because in a lot of games you are able to just get out of the helicopter when it's in mid-air but you had to land first which got really annoying. But I would recommend this game to anyone who likes a lot a roaming space and likes intense shooters, this game is very addictive and I have already played this game for more than 30 hours and have beaten it twice in two weeks. Overall an amazing game!
