While developer Pandemic may talk a good game about story and mission progression and its big open world, Mercs 2 is really just a game about blowing $#[email protected] up. And you can do it with a buddy.
That's right, Mercs 2 allows you to hop online and turn two of your friends into accomplices as you lay waste to Venezuela. Co-op is easy as can be. As soon as you launch your game, it connects to EA's servers. Your settings allow anyone, friends, or invitees only to join your game. There's no waiting on the host's part. You play and when people come in, they pop in. When they leave, they're gone. Simple as that.
