Mercenaries 2: World in Flames is a respectable sequel to one of the most fun and overlooked games of last console generation. The action is fast and there is always plenty of visual eye candy, be it a carpet bomb or sports car with mounted rocket launcher. The game runs pretty well with only a few graphic and AI glitches. Ugly textures and disappearing debris can be a drag though. Being tethered to your co-op buddy can limit your possibilities but there is a lot you can do working within that restriction.
This game unapologetically stays 'arcadey' when other sandbox games go for the gritty and realistic look. Driving monster trucks through shanty towns offers an experience only Mercenaries can deliver. World in Flames is a fun action game that doesn't take itself particularly serious.
