Mercenaries 2: World in Flames is flamed at JustPressPlay.net receives 7/10

Taken from review:

"While Mercenaries 2 is a fun game it just feels entirely unfinished. It's almost as if Pandemic worked on the game for about 10 months got sidetracked doing something more important (clipping their toe nails maybe) and just decided to release the alpha code."

first off if you liked MERCS 1 you will love MERCS 2 the MERCENARIES franchise has builded up a library of FANS ( like myself) and to say that MERCS 2 is not fun is just dissing video games all together buy MERCS 2. perferably the ps3 version cause you dont have to worry about getting RED RING OF DEATH when you call in the NUKE

It was dead when it was announced.

I played it for a hour or two. It was better than I was expecting but I can see it getting stale so quickly like so many other Hero based shooters.

It's still baffles me how Factions 2 got canned but this was given the go ahead outside of the very very easy to see MTX potential.

I would have been all over Factions 2. I don't have the slightest interest in Concord. I haven't downloaded the Beta, and don't plan on it.

The desperation is real when you have to used a close beta to claim a game is dead.

Its a preorder only beta (which grants 5 beta codes) that has a concurrent player base of 400 people…

If that doesn’t tell you anything about the lack of interest people have for paying $40 for the game, I’m not sure what else could do it.

Will the free beta get higher numbers? Sure, i’d be surprised if it didnt. But the actual metric for abysmal preorder numbers is still there and getting high player counts during a free beta doesn’t necessarily translate to people actually wanting to pay $40 for the game

Didn’t we all literally do this with Suicide Squad, Anthem, The Avengers, Babylon’s Fall so on?

No one batted an eyelid then but now it’s unheard of and wrong

I mean how many of these are there going to be that can only survive with constant users playing and dumping money into MTX’s? There’s already a couple more popular already with major support. It’s just hard to think this game that hasn’t established a strong following is going to successfully add to that list. If you ask me, it’s just another drop in the bucket.

Yes. Not even the ponies want it.

I'm enjoying it so far but they are going to have to put in work if they want to keep gamers long term. It's definitively fun.

Ranking The Coldest, Most Ruthless Protagonists In Gaming

Not all video game protagonists are sweet, jolly, or wholesome. Folks like Agent 47 are cold, ruthless, and reserved and it shows.

Ah, fond memories of strangling all the people in their hotel rooms in Hitman 1

Lara Croft, Nathan Drake etc, cos they pretend to be the good guys but are mass murderers that show no remorse.
