Mercenaries 2 Reviews Coming In… Not Great

1 min read

mercenaries 2 world in flames

Either my jinxing powers are super powerful or I just like games that are not great. My latest expectation, Mercenaries 2, has received it’s IGN review (first review?) and while there are some good points being said about the game the problems are also unmistakable.

Mind you a 7.9 is far from being a bad score but getting a 5 for sound is quite embarrassing and it’s biggest let down seems to have been a shoddy AI implementation.

It is however saved by it’s ability to blow sh*t up… Something which instantly appeals to its target audience.

I have to admit that I get frustrated that I cannot entirely level a building in Bad Company and by the sound of it Mercenaries 2 has solved this problem by making virtually everything capable of turning into dust.

Added to that a decent co-op campaign and this is once again looking like a game we will need to add to our collection. Lets just hope that IGN were being a little harsh on their review.

    Well i don’t know about IGN, but i give an average game a 5 out of 10, which surprisingly is the middle point of the scoring range.

    So if i hear 7.9 out of 10 that tells me the game must be damn good. Sigh, another reason to not trust these reviewing sites.

    Demos FTW, really the best way to decide whether you’ll like it or not.

    Actually, demos don’t work for me. I thought the demo of Uncharted was not very good but got the game based on others opinions and i’m gald i did. Uncharted is brilliant.

    I also thought the NGS demo made the game look worse than it was.

    I really do hope this is just another case of reviewers being idiotic.

    I’m really looking forward to this game

    Damn I was looking forward to this 🙁

  • what the hell are you guys smoking?

    7.9 is a fine score. It’s a “if this is your thing it’s great” score.

    9/10’s should only be reserved for “Even if you hate the genre tryt the game” games.
