Mercenaries 2: World in Flames
Great for everyone
This game is over all a great game.There is a huge amount of weapons to make your arsenal from. With different kinds of machine guns, shotguns, snipers, assault rifles, submachine guns ,and explosive projectiles. Over the course of the game you recruit some very lively characters that offer a range of special things. There are several factions that make a war-torn Venezuela a fun place to explore and explode. With 96 different vehicles that cover land, sea, and air you will never need to walk and with such a large game world you won't want to. With the wide variety of vehicles, weapons, and factions you will never truly finish playing. And the T rating is great for people who want a GTA like game but their parents won't let them buy M games. If you have a friend with their own copy of the game you can play the whole game together. The game is exactly the same by your self or with another person so there is no content gap. I strongly recommend this game to everyone who owns a 360 console.
I hope this review makes you buy the game.
This game is AMAZING
First thing right off the bat is that this game is great. to all abox 360 players that like blowing **** up! I had this game for about 1 year and its still working great and making me hungry for more action! I would give this game to any one that likes blowing stuff up. even the building can get destroyed. and their is a freakin NUKE for crying out loud. but im not done yet because theirs all kind of stuff in this world of mercenaries 2! only people that don't like blowing stuff up or people that can't take care of this game hate it. all im tryin to say here is that this game should be a GAME OF THE YEAR. their is nothing bad in this amazing disc. all you need to do is take good care of it and it will last for a long time. so this game is worth the money. all I can say is 3 worlds for the remaining words i need to type. BUY THIS GAME. BUY THIS GAME. BUY THIS GAME. BUY THIS GAME. BUY THIS GAME. BUY THIS GAME. BUY THIS GAME. BUY THIS GAME. BUY THIS GAME. BUY THIS GAME. BUY THIS GAME. BUY THIS GAME!!!!!!!!!!!
People complain to much.
Ok first of all, I almost didn't buy this game because of all the BAD reviews that were given to it. That would've been a big mistake. SURE this game WAS overhyped, but what game isn't nowadays? Everyone's been complaining about how you get fines for killing civilians.... DOES ANYONE remember the first mercenaries?! YOU GOT FINED THEN TO AND NOBODY COMPLAINED! This game is much improved from the first one, if you look past the few flaws that this game has it's a very entertaining game. Who cares if you gotta throw a beacon out for an air strike, you had to do that in the first game also. This game is very similar to the original, but its based in a different country, now i'll admit I do miss the way bounties used to be collected, with the chinook chopper with dual machine guns but its almost the same in this game. This game is VERY similar to "Just Cause" in a way, except 128394234203984 times better... haha just cause sucked... but yeah... this is a very good game. Thanks for reading.
Mercenaries 2 is a Solid Action Game
Mercs 2 offers alot of great gameplay for a small cost of money. Until my Xbox broke, I was playing this game whenever I could. The beginning of the game wasn't the best part. You don't really start with any great weapons or rocket launchers or anything fun like that. As you advance through the game, you find more beastly weapons to use. You can also unlock things like supply drops, a tank delivery and more. You can blow up multiple buildings and cars with the tanks. And eventually, you can call in airstrikes to wipe out whole areas. The gameplay provides tons of fun, literally. The graphics are pretty decent for their time (2008). There is an open, explorable world that you can search for resources. The only complaint I have over the open world is that I often time found myself not knowing what to do next to advance the story. Also, some missions are too hard (complicated) and some are way to simple to complete. Overall, Mercs 2 is a great game. There are decisions that you must make over pleasing factions. Some missions, you have to turn down in order to do another. The action and advenutre keeps you interested the whole way. The graphics are decent enough. Superb sound effects, good length, passable storyline, multiple different characters to use...overall, its a game that's worth the tiny price. GO BUY IT!
The wait is nearly over for one of the best games ever.
From the videos and information from Pandemic Studios (Mercenaries' creators) this game will be nothing short of rediculously awesome. There are over one hundred vehicles in the game from what I've heard, maybe even airplanes. In the developer's word's "If its in the game, you should be able to steal, drive, blow up, or sell it". Im pretty sure any vehicle can be customized at your PMC base, there is a video where one of the mercenaries is driving in a dune buggy with a missile rack mounted on it. And for you story fans out there, Mercenaries 2 will have a much deeper story than the last game. A revenge plot begins when an oil tyrant betrays you after doing a contract for him, he shoots you and you dont get paid. Of course, there will be multiplayer Co-op (Theres nothing more fun than blowing things up with your friends). Besides the main storyline, there will be tons of side jobs, and free-roaming worth hours of extra gameplay. So get ready to shoot, blow things up, and get paid
This is one of the greatest games ive ever played. I love the factions, the missions, and the vehicles. But this game was rushed. I mean Glitches and Lags occur all the time. But its still worth playing. The sound gets old, but for some reason its addicting. This game gets a 8 out of 10!
First of all, Mercenaries 2: World In Flames is a suucchh great game and I have been playing it a lot for about two weeks now and it hasn't glitched even once, so I don't know why all of the reviews say is is soooo glitchy. Second of all it is really fun and even though the story isn't the best, it's not bad and it is really fun just to go around and blow up huge 50 story buildings and watch them crumble and become a pile of rubble. Some people think this is a rip-off of gta just because the gameplay is similar to gta. Personally, I think this game is much better than gta because there are better guns, some really cool boats, a helecopter you can call in almost anytime, and best of all the destructable enviroments. So if you are thinking about buying this game, STOP THINKING AND BUY IT YOU WON'T REGRET IT!! What do you have to lose? Its only $7.99!!!!
Etjedinat is back with a game worth playing. Let me start off with the greatest thing about this game, first of all the producers called this game "explosive", and it is for sure. From the moment you step into the game you will feel a rush of excitement. The constant destruction in this game would surely slow any other game down, but not this one, it will keep up to high flying speed always. The controls are superb, making you feel at home, something I have not felt before in a third-person game. The graphics are pretty good, but the environment is not detailed enough. And now to list off the things I did not like. For starts the difficulty is not as hard in this sequel. The NPC's are often super repetitive in speech. Glitches can be found. And for the worst mistake of all, there are too many racing mini-games, and not enough real missions, taking away that mercenaries feel. And to end it up I recommend this game, and if etjedinat likes it, then it is good!
More like Mercs 1.5....but that's a GOOD thing!
If you are looking at getting Mercenaries 2 and hoping that it is a complete reworking of the Mercenaries formula, you might want to reconsider. However, if you enjoyed the "get supplies or vehicles delievered; call in crazy air strikes; fast paced; go anywhere, do anything, destroy anything" gameplay of the first game, you will in no way be disappointed. There are many, many similarities between this game and its older brother. But there are just enough differences to let you know they didn't just throw a fresh coat of paint on the last game. Big differences include the addition of watercraft, the ability to swim, and the grappling hook for skyjacking choppers. The deck of 52 is out, replaced by HVT (High Value Targets) that are given by each faction. The vehicles are still fun to drive/fly, the guns are still fun to shoot, and it's still fun to blow stuff sky high. If you want a big, fun sandbox with lots of toys thrown in, this is the game for you!
Decent, Fun Game. Great Value
Great game for $8! Fun campaign and I hear that co-op is even more fun. If you played the first one you will still enjoy this game.
IMPORTANT: This game will freeze at the main menu every time if you are connected to the internet. At first I thought I had a bad disc and exchanged it but the second one did it too. It's a glitch with this game. Unless you played it when it first came out, or you have recently played another EA game from 2008-2009 online, it will freeze. You can still play it offline but you must disconnect before starting the game.
WORKAROUND: Take a copy of Battlefield: Bad Company (original) and go to mutliplayer, accept terms, join a ranked match. Once you actually join the server you can leave and go back to Mercenaries 2 and it will work online! Bad Company is like $12 used and you can always return it within seven days in store. This fix works as of 7/6/12.
