EA is working on a secret 3rd person shooter which will have heavy destructible environments. Is this the new Mercenaries game that they have been working on since 2009?
If those bastards at EA have the stones to release another Mercenaries title after they kicked Pandemic to the curb. Then they will not see any more of my money. Sorry Bioware.
Boo hoo mate. Pandemic released a slew of average games. Most were even kept on at different studios anyway. EA are on a roll and big John Ricotello a man that deserves some serious recognition. If you're gonna not buy their games over a reason like that then it's really your own loss.
The first was ahead of it's time, the second was mediocre...The third? Pandemic are gone :( Fu** You EA :)
Pandemic didn't keep up. Every current gen game Pandemic had, sucked. Their franchise is now, likely to be in better hands than it was with Pandemic, in the end.
The Saboteur did not suck
@Johandevries I agree with you about The Saboteur not sucking, Pandemic did a good job on that game IMO. It was a very good open world game. I have completed it and found it a quite enjoyable story. I also liked Mercs 2, but not as much as The Saboteur though.
It wasn't great. The story was awful, gameplay so-so. It was kinda like wanna be mercenaries.
They need to make it as good looking, as big, and as fun as Just Cause 2. Co-op was ok but it sucked not being able to roam far away from your friend.
then you suck! it's a very good game! although Merc2 sucks and i don't know what the hell were they thinking with that but The Saboteur certainly not a good reason to sack the whole studio down for!
It's Mercs Inc. The once canned game. Got brought alive by a leaked showreel of a ex-employee of Pandemic last year.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE. I was gutted when the devs lost there jobs i never thought i see another mercanaires. nobody has ever made a game like this. sabatour wasnt the same. i need another sequel please. NNNOOOO USEING FROSTBITE 2.0 ENGINE WHATT!! THIS CANT BE REAL WHAOOOOOOOOOO
Please, just make it like Mercs 1, because the second was horrible. Man, i don't know how many days i spent playing the first. Amazing game back in the day
Unlocking that second area......good times.
inb4 crappy game again
As long as it looks nothing like the leaked gameplay did a few years ago: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
As long as its exactly like mercs 1 and not the terrible game they called mercs 2
I never picked up a merc game. But i was close both times. they really looked enjoyable. If a 3rd comes out i will prob try it.
Even though mercenaries 2 wasn't nearly as good as the 1st one, I still enjoyed it. I would pre order and buy mercenaries 3 on day one
All the pandemic games sucked balls in terms of grapic quality. Mercs 2 and the saboteur had a lot of tearing issues and the textures looked liked ps2 games. But the biggest letdown was the Mercs2 Trophy patch. If you were online connected to the servers before the patch dropped you could not get the platin trophy. EA was to lazy to reset the damn servers. No matter that pandemic is closed down. Mercs 2 and the saboteur were both crap.
A shame since Pandemic raped all ass on PS1. Star Wars Battlefront 1 & 2 and Mercs 1 were FUCKING amazing games.
I'd love another Mercs. It would be great if it used Frostbite 2. :D
Everyone in here saying Pandemic & The Saboteur were crap need to take a trip back down Memory lane! Not only was The Saboteur a great game, it had an innovative use of Anti-Aliasing on PS3 that hasn't been seen since. It's a shame they were closed down as they were planning on releasing that same tech to help the PS3 on multiplats!
