Now considering the amount of sandbox games that have came out and revolutionised the genre since the original, Pandemic have a tall task on their hands. Luckily this time around they have the full power of the next generation formats to push the potential of the series.
Mercenaries 2 will come packing with a whole host of improved features like a co-op mode that can be played online and offline, improved AI and fully destructible environments. These are sure to play a major role in World In Flames but we've seen all these so many times before that they seem like necessities instead of revolutionary improvements.
To be honest that is cutting this game short. The original Mercenaries was a great sandbox game just to mess around in and now it's the same great sandbox game but with next generation additions."
