Great game, really enjoyable. Be it a hardcore game session or just a
few minutes of destroying everything in your path, mercenaries is
always a great way to spend my time gaming.
I got the game a couple weeks ago thanks to my friend lending it to
me. The controls took a little getting used to when I began playing,
but after a bit I got the hang of it. I really enjoyed the way you could
order tanks on the fly and destroy everything with it.
Only issue I've had with the game so far is that sometimes when I go
in certain areas (especially Caracas area) the graphics would mess up
and... well it's a little hard to explain what happens, so I'll show you
with a video:
Other than that, the game works fine. I (of course) sided with the
pirates as soon as I could complete missions for them. The only one I
had trouble with was the one where you would steal rum from UP and
drive it to a pirate area for delivery. I completed the first level but
couldn't complete the second or third. Guess I'll just have to keep
Another thing that I enjoy about this game is the humor aspect of it.
You can put on a chicken suit and complete the game wearing it. As
you can guess, it's very hard to take a mercenary seriously while
seeing him wear a chicken suit :P
I also like the fact that you could gamble with your partners, because
I always won and got rich right from the beginning thanks to them.
Lots of spending money at the start really helps making the game fun
All in all, this was a great game, but it had a multiplayer aspect that I
wasn't able to appreciate seeing as I had no one to play with. Maybe
sometime I'll get around to testing it. Also has a nice gta feel to it,
except that people don't even care if you take their cars! (I think they
respect the mercenary too much)
