Save your money and rent it

This game was postponed for over a year and in that time it appears EA did nothing to improve the game, but spent that time developing its sale's pitch. This game is bad (bad as in bad) Awful, not only does it play like a last gen X-box game, but the story (if you can call it that) is lacking. So let's pick it up from there, shall we? As a mercenary in Venezuela you are betrayed by a dictator and now seek revenge. Along the way you work with the Allied Nations, the Chinese government, some local rebels, and others to exact your revenge. With all these factions one might believe there would be some side quest/plots/missions, well guess what? There are none! So the story line fails, let's look at the game play.

The only saving grace of the game is the game play, but don't expect any huge improvements from the first Mercenaries. Destroying buildings (which is the main selling point of the game has been enhanced) And you are given a lot of weapons to accomplish this: Tanks, explosives, air strikes... The destruction of the buildings and the havoc caused is the games best part. But watching people run around from a small nuke being dropped can get old after awhile. So what about the AI? Pathetic! I stopped counting the number of times the bad guys were stuck in a wall or just standing there waiting for me to shot them. Your teammates are just as bad. So I guess my final assessment is to save your money and just rent this game, you'll find it incredibly easy and the replay value is zero.
