Definately glad I bought this
on 17 March 2009
I was put of buying this buy friends and reviews, but then at £11 used & new there isn't a great amount of risk and I am definately glad I decided to buy it. I was a massive fan of mercs 1 on PS2 and was prepared to be let down with this after hearing about it being rushed and glitchy.
The graphics are pretty awesome, nice explosions, character models and enviornment interaction. no waiting for scenery to load, it is true there not killzone good but then the map is massive which I think is a fair sacrifice to make. Its great fun driving through shanty towns in a tank and good that tree's no longer stop you in you tracks.
Everyone is making a big stink about the voice acting, but hey its an xbox 360, put subtitles on and put some MP3's on not worth slamming a whole game over.
I havent encountered any glitches yet, I'm sure I will though it sounds enivitable. I played for 3 hours straight with no crashes, lag or stalling and my disk was pre-owned.
compared to first mercs it is a little harder and a lot more interesting. loads of weapons, vehicles and supplies to choose from and tonnes of meaty airstrikes.
Don't be put off from buying this game, it is fantastic value.
