Mercenaries 2 is a game that's received plenty of coverage over its rather lengthy development cycle, but thus far little of that coverage has dealt with the highly anticipated co-operative multiplayer. What GameSpot has heard has to do with a seamless experience where the joining player simply drops in and out of the host player's session. Then they run around Venezuela blowing up everything just as they would in a normal single player mode, but with the added benefit of being able to revel in all that destruction alongside a friend.
GameSpot is pleased to say they finally had the opportunity to experience Mercs 2's co-op mode at yesterday's EA Showcase event in Redwood Shores. But they are even more pleased to say this feature is every bit as simple and fun as they expected.
