Mercs is all explosions with little care given to the wrappings. The lack of real story actually keeps the game playable and in the future Pandemic may be better off forgoing the pretense of plot. Story, graphics, sound and nearly everything you can think of fail, but Mercenaries is about little more than getting paid to blow stuff up, and in that regard it completely succeeds. Rife with these sorts of inconsistencies, World in Flames illustrates a bit too well that multi-platform development is not for the faint of heart.
