I had really high hopes for this game. I actually enjoyed the demo and I was hoping for good things...however it seems that this game is not gonna live up to what it should have been. I canceled my preorder and moved it to Mercenaries 2. I wonder what will happen with the two scheduled sequels? Two more flops or just cancelled games?
Mercenaries 2 is a renter, or an under $20 at best. I played the first one long enough to bag one of the 'Aces', and found I was completely bored of the game. Beyond better graphics, and a few new features, I doubt 2 is going to really re-invent the wheel.
