Game Slave writes: "The first Mercenaries game was one of the unsung heroes of the last generation of consoles. With its combination of sandbox gameplay, clever story and ability to blow almost anything up on a whim, it was an addictive, if short-lived, thrill ride through the wastelands of North Korea.
Mercenaries 2: World in Flames, is the next incarnation of that trend-setting series, and while it has all of the style and substance of its predecessor, it fails in many other ways.
The location for the mayhem this time is Venezuela, a fact that the Venezuelan government weren't exactly happy about, and a fair chunk of the countryside is open for your inspection. The in-game world is huge and diverse, covering everything from huge areas of open water, to jungle, to desert and of course, the huge high-rise buildings and squat shantytowns of a developing country."
