Mercenaries (PlayStation 2)

 

The near future, it seems, is a great place to have a pretend war these days. Mercenaries marks the second imaginary modern military conflict that Pandemic Studios has cooked up over the past six months, though Mercenaries is a much more...

Mercenaries - PS2 review at Thunderbolt Games

 

The sub-heading for Mercenaries is ‘Playground of Destruction'. It sums up the game nicely; if you crave wanton destruction then you will probably be in your element playing this. On the other hand, those of you hoping for a good war-based alternative...

Mercenaries Review for the PS2

 

Killing in the name of...

Huge, free-roaming area; Tons of weapons and vehicles; Many ways to get the job done; Lots of unlockables

Some control issues; Glitchy A.I.; No multiplayer

What they don't give you, however, is any way to play with others. There is no online play at all, nor is there a co-op mode. The faction breakdown seems tailor-made for multiplayer; it's a shame they didn't see fit to include it.

Mercenaries on Playstation 2

 

Maybe Not In/Destructible?

In the end, a pared-down multi-player extravaganza does not a great single-player experience make. This game has a lot of good things going for it, but they exist in departments that ultimately don't matter. If you have never played a Pandemic game...

adds tracks with serious tones of military action, but nothing too overwhelming. The sound effects are crisp and diverse, although the over abundance of machine gun fire does sound a bit weak and unrealistic. For instance, in the classic Day of Defeat...

Blowing stuff up has never been as fun as it is in Pandemic's gem.

Awesome airstrikes allow you to destroy virtually anything; excellent graphics; good sense of humor; strong musical score and sound

Multiplayer would have been a nice addition; AI can be perplexing at times; animation is not as smooth as Xbox version

Mercenaries review

 

Most people see Lucas Arts as primarily a Star Wars company. While they release a lot of titles, a majority of them are just that. Most games outside the Star Wars license really aren’t seen as great games. Armed & Dangerous was fun, but it was...

Once you find the Deck of 52, there isn’t much else to do. Sure, there are three characters to choose from at the beginning, but they don’t have their own set of missions. The standard game can be completed in about 12-15 hours if you...

Explosive enviroments, quite satisfying

 

This game was quite fun. You get to blow a lot of stuff up and and steal alomost every vehicle. If you have the urge to blow something up i would suggest renting it before you think about buying it.

Explosive scenery

confusing team changes

Consumer review by:

A big disappointment

 

this games could have been a perfect 10. But the developers should have known that this game would have been a much more enjoyment if it had multiplayer maps of destruction and a co op mode. Maybe the develpers will think about that for a sequel, but...

nice graphics, awsome missions, gta style games

no multiplayer, character movement, no multiplayer, no multiplayer

Product Specifications

Mercenaries is a revolutionary, 3rd person action-shooter game set in the near future and inspired by real world events. On the eve of a historic reunification of North and South Korea, a ruthless general stages a military coup to take control of North Korea and threatens the world with nuclear war. The international community launches a global task force to stabilize the region. However, when diplomatic efforts collapse and the region descends into anarchy they announce a one hundred million dollar bounty on the North Korean general and his top military and scientific advisors. The targets are identified in a "most wanted" list in the form of a 52-card deck of playing cards. As one of the top operatives for a private mercenaries company called Executive Operations, you have been called in to collect on these bounties.
