    A decent open-world romp WITH A FRIEND. The game nedds to be played in co-op, otherwise it's just another open-world clone. The game has a good level of destructible environments, but this doesn't save it from repetition when play alone.

(NB: The servers for the PC version of the game have been shut down by EA and the game is only playable in online mode. However, there is a sever emulator for Mercs2 available online for free that does work (tested). So, the co-op functionality is still applicable for the PC version of the game.) *Rating based on co-op play. Expand

    One of the best sandbox TPS I've ever played! Yes, it's not perfect, it has stupid AI, and graphics doesn't shining like a diamond. But! But those portions of fun that this game bring to me absolutley nihilates all her cons. Oh, and all those destructions! I extremely love this game, but I hate Electronic Arts for abandoning it almost after release date. It has outstanding co-op, butOne of the best sandbox TPS I've ever played!

    Lack of visual polish, and over poor artistic quality hold back what is an extremely fun game. The controls are a bit off, but it does not kill what fun there is to have with this game. Could it be better yes, but I have no problems recommending this game based on fun factor alone.

    Mercenaries 2 is like a newsstand; it has a lot of issues. Still, I can't deny that there were some hootin’ and hollerin’ moments. For every time I cursed the stupid AI, I cheered at the demolition of another building.

    Mercenaries 2 has lived up to its expectations to be a fun and crazy game about having a hell of a time in a war zone.

    Great in small, explosive doses, particularly with a friend, but longevity is unlikely to be one of its strong points. [Nov 2008, p.106]
