Only 1 word for this game EXPLOSIVE,
This review is from: Mercenaries (Xbox) (Video Game)
Mercenaries is like a military based GTA with high intensity shoot, drivin, flying and not forgetting the explosions. The game is based in the DMZ (area between south and north korea)1 of the most dangerous places on the face of the planet(a perfect setting). There are 2 free-roaming maps which you treat how you like, Almost anything you can see you can blow up except trees. You chose which factions will be your allies and which you will just be your target practise there are four factions russians, south koreas, allies and the chinese and also the north koreans who are always hostile towards you. The main aim of the game is to eliminate (or subdue, which ever floats your boat) the ace of spades (General Song). To get to him you must get intel from the other 51 cards each one varies in difficulty. All in all the game is not complete without a good few explosion, you would be suprised how much damage one explosion can do. There is a wide range of weapons machine guns, sniper rifles, missile launchers, etc, and vehicles such as choppers, APC's and of course our loyal friend the tank. At the start you get to choose your character, the American, the swede or the Brit each are very similar with only minor differences.
This is a definate buy and have fun blowing stuff up
