Mercenaries 2: World in Flames is an explosive open-world action game set in a massive, highly reactive, war-torn world. A power-hungry tyrant messes with Venezuela's oil supply, sparking an invasion that turns the country into a warzone. But for you, international crisis is all upside: You are a mercenary, and you profit from chaos. These are world powers with deep pockets, deep grudges, and enough arms and ammo to start World War III. This is your kind of environment. mercenaries 2 features the latest and most dangerous in civilian and military tech, everything from shiny new sports cars, to the future-tech satellite-guided bunker-busting mini-nuke. Tanks, APCs, boats, luxury automobiles -- you name it, you can have it delivered to you in real time. And if you run out of cash you can always 'acquire' the gear you need in the field. You are not a soldier. You don't have to play by anyone's rules. You have your own code: you will fulfill the terms of the contract, no matter what.

3 out of 5 eggsEh.. it has its ups and downs

Pros: The game has a great feel to it.. i mean who doesn't want to drive a tank down the road and shoot opposing factions... the story isn't too bad.. In some ways the game is pretty awesome... I i never really played the original..

Cons: Alright it has glitches... Clearly unfinished... The pc version no longer has multiplayer support... meaning no multiplayer servers... meaning no multiplayer at all... but what hurt me is when i played for hours... and got stuck in a rock some how... lost all my progress due to not saving the game.... you would think i could just kill myself and respawn ... but for some reason the grenades did not work inside the rock... anyways like i said it has its ups and downs... oh yeah the AI is pretty dumb.. 1 second you get shot in the head the next they do not even see you coming...

Other Thoughts: for 10 bucks... if you just want to blow stuff up.. including buildings... its not bad.... the graphics are definatly not gta quality... meaning you wreck a car.. its just gonna blow up maybe turn black.. but for the most part stay in its original form... the plot to the game... well its hard to find the main story line... some of the hidden packages glitch out... 1 second you have 70/100 the next you got 60/100... sometimes you might even pick up the same hidden package twice....

1 out of 5 eggsDon't bother with this crummy game.

Pros: None

Cons: Lousy graphics, storyline and gameplay.

Poor weapon targeting simulation. You have to press mouse 1 to bring up the targeting reticle, and it often lets off a shot before you aim. Hard to tell how much ammo you have; the info disappears and reappears mysteriously.

Vehicles are twitchy and nearly impossible to drive.

The AI is numb, and the NPC adversaries are unable to hit anything except at point blank range. You can stand 50 feet in front of a .50 cal, and it'll miss you with almost all of it's shots. That's probably a good thing, since your automatic weapon shots spray all over the place and don't hit anything much either.

"support menu" (which is necessary to blow up gates, steal ammo, money etc). is almost incomprehensible.

The PDA is also confusing.

Other Thoughts: Lots of good games out there; but this is one one of them. Like they say in New York; "fagetaboudit!"

1 out of 5 eggsbad

Pros: some of the holdover gameplay concepts from the original

price??? maybe?

Cons: controls are terrible... settings customization is terrible... graphics are terrible... ai is terrible... regular glitches are constant and terrible... etc.

Other Thoughts: yuck! i bought this game for a couple hundred pennies and i totally wasted them! the original mercs ROCKED and i therefore gambled when i saw the cheap price tag. the old adage of 'you get what you pay for' has never been more true. save your pennies and get a delicious ice cream cone or something.

4 out of 5 eggsExplosively Terrific

Pros: Awesome game. Lots of action and explosions. I love that at any time I can call in a Tank / Air strike and literally "level" the playing field.

Cons: The company no longer offers on-line game play.

1 out of 5 eggsOne of the worst video games ever.

Pros: None.
Not even the price.
Well, i guess EA had good ideas for the game, but ideas dont really count, do they?

Cons: The game was 5 dollars, and quite frankly, not worth it.
Where do I begin...AI, horrible. Through the first whole mission, I could stand right in front of the enemy and they wouldnt do anything except say, "the enemy is near! the enemy is near!" it got really annoying and pointless.
The driving in the game is unresponsive.
The graphics look like garbage.
Graphic settings would keep reverting back to default even after I "save" them.
Really EA? this game sucks and you should be kicked in the teeth for the thought of selling it.

Other Thoughts: Dont buy this game.
You'll say just like I did, "Wow, just five dollars. I guess I'll give it a shot", only to be dissapointed after the long install.
I installed it...played it for about 2 hours (2 hours because I was waiting for it to get better), and uninstalled it shortly thereafter.

1 out of 5 eggsEA has STOPPED SUPPORTING MERCENARIES 2!

Pros: NONE! EA must DESPISE its paying customers!

Cons: Online servers for this game are to be SHUT DOWN on March 16, 2010! Along with MANY other EA PC and console games they recently stopped supporting!

This game was ONLY released on September 3, 2008 according to one large retailer! EA gobbled up and ate the company that made it, PANDEMIC, and now they killed this game for desert, too!

Rather than fix the many bugs in this game, like being able to LOG ONLINE TO PLAY IT (see EA's many forum posts about this), EA instead decided to SHUT IT DOWN a year and a half after release!

EA's customer support response times are now either nonexistent or take WEEKS or MONTHS to even get one! And if you happen to actually get help from EA on an online chat, it is a canned response which is usually USELESS for most technical and bug problems!

This is what happens when a company gobbles up other good game companies, fires nearly everyone, then farms their customer service out to clueless tech support in foreign countries for the cheapest wag

Other Thoughts: EA is shutting down online support because supposedly too few players play it, WHEN MANY PLAYERS CAN'T EVEN LOG ON TO PLAY IT IN THE FIRST PLACE!

I wish I had not just bought this from NEWEGG a few days ago. The order has already shipped, and I will be stuck with DEAD GAME that EA refuses to debug or support anymore. I only found this out AFTER I bought it while I was researching the game.

EA has fallen into the bottomless black hole of gaming with poor or no customer support, by gobbling up other smaller gaming companies and firing their programming staffs to make a quick buck.

Gamers who pay EA's wages need to take note of how EA is destroying their reputation one failed game at a time, while screwing their customers and the gaming companies they pillage and burn behind them. This is what happens when clueless office suits ignore the paying customers and focus instead on higher profits and bonuses at the expense of the quality of the games they produced.
