Review by Nick Suttner:
"Though much has changed in the gaming industry in the three-and-a-half years since the original Mercenaries, developer Pandemic banks smartly on the first game's proven formula in this sequel, relying on one of life's few constants: Blowing things up is fun. A lot more fun than death and taxes. World in Flames doesn't do much to evolve that formula, but this is one of those rare cases where that's alright -- Mercs still does open-world destruction best, and despite a plague of idiotic A.I. drones and some other nagging annoyances (left over from the first game), this sequel is almost everything it needs to be."
