GameZone: Mercenaries 2: World in Flames Review

When it released in 2005, the original Mercenaries was a fun and interesting title that took the open-world sandbox concepts of the Grand Theft Auto series and gave it a different focus, putting you in the shoes of a mercenary-for-hire in a war-torn city. Now, the sequel is launching on next-gen consoles, and it offers what you'd expect, namely more weapons, vehicles, explosions and a bigger environment to explore. Additionally, there are some great touches to keep the game interesting, including co-op multiplayer. All in all, Mercenaries 2 touches on the same vein as its predecessor, but packs a much bigger punch.
