IGN: Mercenaries 2: World in Flames PS2 Review

The original Mercenaries came out three-and-a-half years ago. But instead of giving people a game with more than three years worth of updates, Pi Studios has actually taken three steps backwards. Mercs 2 looks worse, plays worse and is just plain worse than the groundbreaking original. Why this watered-down version was even published is a mystery. Were this game fun, where the missions structured in a way that made them enjoyable, than there'd at least be a reason to rent. But there's nothing here to recommend. Mercenaries 2 on PS2 is a bad game. 'Nuff said.

Presentation - 4.0
Graphics - 5.0

Straight 10's across the board, just like it deserved, and it's a PS3 exclusive - they're still credible.
