I Want To Blow It All Up!!!!

AdvantagesGood Game Fun

DisadvantagesPoor Version Of GTA

"I bought this game as I am a great lover of first person shooter games and particularily of modern warfare games and it did not dissapoint me at all. You play as a member of a mecenary force with 52 cards each with the face of a target on it and a bounty on their head which you will pocket should you capture or even kill them giving a whole new games meaning to dead or alive. I had hours and hours of fun with this game before eventually selling it ..." Read review

Not a GTA beater? no, but still an epic

AdvantagesGreat Graphics, good atmosphere, Good challenge, not far from GTA

DisadvantagesLong load times, Too much driving, can be dull

"You probably gathered from the title that this is not as good as GTA, but experience shows that if a game is as good as GTA, it exists only in the developer's mind. Like Driv3r. But, that doesn't mean that this is not a pretty good try. Mercenaries is an open ended, non linear, GTA-like experience. You can jack vehicles, shoot people, etc, etc. You're a mercenary (choice of three) who has been drafted to North Korea by your mercenary company. ..." Read review

War... Never Been So Much Fun.

AdvantagesGreat Graphics, superb shooting and the mere fact you can blow up virtualy anything, lots of replay value.

DisadvantagesAI is not the smartest out there, is more linear than you might think.

"LucasArts… you've gotta love em'. They have a reputation of releasing great and not so great Star Wars games, along with others that no one remembers. However the past year has seen some great titles such as Battlefront, Knights of the Old Republic 2 (not forgetting the recently released Republic Commando) and Mercenaries is no exception. To cut a long story short Mercenaries is set in a war torn North Korea. The country has set up weapons of mass ..." Read review

DisadvantagesJUST BUY THE GAME!!!!!

The game revolves around 3 character each with different language advantage, for example one can speak russian, the other two speak chinese and korean. In the game you start off as a mercenary looking to do missions for different governments, now why would they hire me you ask? Well it's because of your expertise. Basically what ..." Read review

GTA clone-With more tanks and surgical airstrikes

AdvantagesFast-paced non-stop action. Great graphics, addictive

DisadvantagesGoodbye social life

"Mercenaries really lives up to its title, it really is the playground of destruction. You choose from one of three mercenaries whose task is to liason with local agencies in the DMZ, and then ultimately capture/kill General Song, the villian of the game. The beginning of the game sees the character being airdropped out of a plane in the middle of a pitched battle between the allied command and North Korean froces and sets the tone nicely for this ..."

'Playground Of destruction'

Advantagesfully destructible landscape

Disadvantageslittle bit repepitive after a while

"Mernaries is a great game. You start with a choice to play as either one of three characters, involving you in the game straight away. The video cut scenes are good, seemlessly linking you between gameplay and video. The aim of the game is too overthrow the North korean government, named the 'Deck of 52' as every key member of the regime is assorted into various decks and numbers, starting from the lowest to the highest, 'The ace of spades'. You are ..." Read review

Not bad

Advantageslooks great, sounds great, feels great

Disadvantagesslightly repetitive

"Mercenaries, in my experience, is a very fun and enjoyable game, if a little bit repetitive. You play as one of three mercenaries sent in to a fictionalized north korea where practically the whole world has invaded and want to stake their claim to it. You'll be able to choose from quite a range of weaponry including AK's M4's heavy machine guns, grenades and much more. You'll also have access to some devastating firepower in the form of air strikes ..." Read review

An epic game for the ps2

AdvantagesGreat graphics, amazing gameplay

DisadvantagesNo storyline really

"Mercenaries: Playground of Destruction is an epic game and will surely be followed up by a classic Mercenaries 2. You get thrown into a free roam world (sort of like grand theft auto) where you can go around doing anything you want and exploding almost anything or you can go and find people who will hire you to do missions. You get to take part in a huge number of very different missions for different people and countries. The missions are ..." Read review
