The Saboteur was a really fun game

It's a damn shame that by the time Pandemic finally made a good game, it was too late for them to not get shut down. It was really a fun game. Reminded me of an Indiana Jones flick. Sometimes it's nice to just gun down thousands of Nazis without it being all grimdark and miserable. It was also a gigantic improvement over Mercs 2.

Um... Mercenaries: Playground of Destruction was also a pretty good game. But, you're right about Mercs 2. What a misstep that was.

You know, whenever a poster uses the terms "b**** and whine" or "piss and moan" or something similar, I simply ignore the entire post.

You should, it's really underrated. Had so many excellent elements, and I never really encountered the bugginess reviewers talked about.

I REALLY wanted to like that game. However, what killed it for me was the terrible stealth mechanics. I always had the feeling that it was just completely random when I got caught. Loved the setting, characters were cool, concept was cool, but the execution was very off.

Yeah, that was it weak point, for sure.

Pandemic also made Destroy All Humans 1 & 2 as well as Star Wars Battlefront 1 & 2, which were good/great games.

Everything was looking great for them going by how they did during the 6th Generation, but something happened in 2008(prior to them releasing Mercs 2, which was indeed a bad game) which was the beginning of the end for them.

They also did Mercenaries, although that was kind of maligned by Mercs 2, although I had fun with it.

I should have specified, I meant this gen. They were a fine ps2 dev but they seemed to struggle with current gen.

Really? I haven't played it in so long that I can't remember the specific mechanics, but I do remember that the stealth was one of my favourite aspects of it.

I really enjoyed this one too, TC. My only gripe was at the beginning when I seemed to be getting insane pop-up. After the first hour (once I got the car and escaped into the city) I never had a problem with it though. But I did think that it made a poor first impression.
