This review is from: Mercenaries 2: World in Flames (PS3) (Video Game)
i got this on the day it came out and was instantly underwhelmed by the graphics, especially the slow moving bullets.
sometimes the graphics are good, especially the explosions, but i dont expect great graphics from a game with such a massive game world, so i dont mind ignoring them.
what i cant ignore are the atrocious physics engine: motorbikes cant fall over, i walked through a wall - also the ammount of inexplicable errors/bugs : i had to throw a grenade thing inside a big glowing circle but everytime i did it i would get a message telling me to throw it closer to the circle, after about 5 minutes of trying everything to get it to work i gave up and restarted my ps3 and hey presto! i was able to complete the mission! im not even going to go into the other bugs i encountered as ive spent long enough writing this review.
basically this game should be good but its just annoying and ive already sold it to blockbuster for £15, a friend offered me £20 but i couldn't inflict him with a game this bad.
