Mercs 2 scores high points because it's clear that the development team at Pandemic Studios was focused in their approach to creating this title. They had a core belief of giving players total freedom to execute their own style of play without having strict, linear rules. It comes from the destructible environments and no holds barred design of the open world. It is too bad that some technical glitches had to crop up but some leeway is given due to the fact that Mercs 2 was built from the ground up, meaning no recycled material from the original Mercenaries was used, and was executed very well for this ambitious project. Mercs 2 is a largely successful effort that will literally give you more "bang" for your buck than most games out there.
