NZGamer writes: ""Wow... Ten gigabyte install" will be the first impression you get from Mercenaries 2 on the PC. It is however justified as Mercenaries 2 has improved vastly over its predecessor in the sense that it is bigger, badder, and more addictive than the previous installment. This time the Mercenaries have stopped off in Venezuela to do a quick job for one of the suits in the Venezuelan government – simple enough.
Mercenaries 2 begins with the player selecting one of the three characters available. The three characters are the same that were found in North Korea: Nilsson, the Swedish war monger; Chris Jacobs, the cigar smoking African American (who looks a lot like Robert Downey Jr. from Tropic Thunder); and Jen, the tough lady of the group. Each of the characters has their own unique ability. Nilsson can regenerate health faster, Jacobs can carry more ammunition, and Jen runs quicker. These are slight improvements but nothing dramatic; choosing a character also affects the dialog you receive during the game."
