Chocolate Lemon: Originally in Resident Evil 4, The Mercenaries originally started it’s life as an additional mode to the action packed campaign of that game. While the campaign skillfully bounced between building tension and overwhelming the player with some excellent action set pieces, The Mercenaries isolated the latter part of that equation and turned it into a score-chasing arcade style romp. It was a bigger addiction than anticipated, with players around the world sharing strategies and uploading their best runs to YouTube to no end. Now, several years later, it’s a game of its own, but like the boxart describes, you’re getting The Mercenaries in 3D, for better, or worse. Can what was previously an extra mode stand up to the pressure of being the main attraction?
