“I Want To Blow It All Up!!!!”

published 30/03/2007

Good Game Fun

Poor 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...

Long 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...

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...

Repitition

Ever dream of being a soldier of fortune, living off you wits and looking through life down the sights of a light machine gun, calling in air strikes to rain fire, misery and death on everyone around you? If this is you then I have two things to say. 1) Do you need counselling? 2) Mercenaries:...

“GOOD GAME - KABOOOOOM!!”

published 08/08/2007

MANY VEHICLES, AIR STRIKES, GUNS,

JUST BUY THE GAME!!!!!

I beat this game and let me tell you something, This game is for people love explosions just like what's on the cover. 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...

Goodbye 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...

“'Playground Of destruction'”

published 21/08/2008

fully destructible landscape

little 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...

“Not bad”

published 04/05/2007

looks great, sounds great, feels great

slightly 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...

“An epic game for the ps2”

published 03/09/2008

Great graphics, amazing gameplay

No 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...
