Play a mercenary caught in a coup in Venezuela in this a free-roaming, sandbox-style action-adventure game.
It's a blurb about how good the game is.. and then gives it a 3/5. I hope this site doesn't seriously consider themselves a gaming site. I guess because it's free-roaming it rips off GTA? Please, Shut up.
Games reviews by newspapers are always terrible
damn... I was looking forward to a "real" review of the game. Guess I have to wait untill someone who's above 2 years old can review it and comment on it.
But.. But.. But it has people! and cars! It's GTA! Damn that Gran Turismo, with it's people and cars ripping off GTA! AND POLE POSITION! Yea, can't let that one slip by... I think they reviewed this game from the back of the box.
the previews about how awesome the game is are pouring and suddenly 3/5?? what the hell? are we on for another flop? this is not going to end well!!
Bear in mind this is from a Newspaper not a dedicated gaming site
For me this game is a 5/5 until I've played it for myself. I think the first one was one of the best games last gen.
Totally agree - really looking forward to this one, though I'm hoping for a demo before splashing the cash. Original was one of my favorite games of the last generation.
Yep ... merc 1 was the best game i ever played in last gen.
It's gonna take some cosmic imbalance to make me think any less than "awesome" of this game. Even if this was a straight rip of part 1 with better graphics I'd be happy. Mercenaries was SO much freakin' fun. It can get a .5 I could not care less.. it's gonna be a blast.
i'm interested just to see what people say about it. regardless of good or bad, though, i'm still buying Mercs 2.
i'm really not interested in this game but 3/5 seems ok.
when was a 3/5 bad?
to paraphrase Mercs2 ad campaign... "OH NO THEY DIDN'T!"
Just when I get that freaking song outta my head you go ahead and mention it and now it goes right back in.
This could have been so much better if EA had only focused the PS3 in the beginning when it was exclusive. Which was way back in 07. But oh well...at least I know now my wallet won't suffer as much now....unless I see much better reviews.
They only write a paragraph of the game and then slap a review score on it. I don't I will trust this lazy site.
lol.. Don't miss this potentially great game because some douche saw a commercial and wrote a review on it.
I know I havent played it yet, but come on now 3/5. Nah if its half as good as the first one (which was freaking addictive and awesome as hell) then it will already have scored a 3/5. But I believe this next gen version will undoubtedly surpass its previous installment.
I already pre bought it. regardless of what this NEWSPAPER says about it, I am still picking it up.
I rarely trust reviews in the Newspapers either, but Steve Boxer is actually a very good reviewer, he is frequently appearing on TV etc and seems very balanced and fair. If you read the review nad don't get hung up on the score he praises the game a lot and states that it is a very good game with weeks of fun to be had. All we have seen so far are a few movies, seems Boxer might be in a better position to offer an opinion to me!
This review told me a whole bunch of nothing about the game. I could probably do a better review without ever playing the game.
