GamePro: Mercenaries 2: World in Flames Review

When there's dirty work to be done and you're looking for a hired gun, looks and originality don't matter much-all that matters is whether they can get the job done. You can approach Mercenaries 2 in the same way, letting it do its thing instead of obsessing about its shortcomings. Sure, it isn't exactly pretty and it doesn't reinvent the wheel but it does pack a nice satisfying punch.

THE BOTTOM LINE: Don't let its shortcomings get you down: Mercs 2 may have its faults but it's still a pretty fun title that kicks a fair amount of ass.

PROS: Loads of action; great setting and plenty of cool things to do; lots of different weapons and vehicles.

CONS: Mediocre presentation; paper-thin story; derivative open-world design.

The story is too old to be commented.

With as bland as I think this game is, played it for about 5 hours now, it is still better than GTA4. Well, it's more fun. Might not be as epic as some say GTA4 is but it looks about on par with it and it has more fun factor built into it than GTA4 does. Also, the cars, trucks and bikes are actually controllable here.
