"Overall Mercenaries 2: World in Flames is disappointing. There are a handful of noticeable bugs and glitches in the game, both in the cinematics and gameplay. It's funny to see a character moving around the screen awkwardly, and to see your car sunken into the road, but then you remember this is next gen gaming and this shouldn't be happening. As mentioned, the sound and graphics aren't great, they aren't terrible but they're not great. The gameplay feels extremely repetitive and gets boring quickly. It's a good thing there's the option to either do missions and HVT's so there's some variety. The driving mechanics that were used are very weak and makes evasion driving tough. The AI isn't smart at all, but having some inaccurate and weak weapons in your arsenal compensates that. The storyline is terrible and makes no sense, if there even is a storyline."
