"Lots of EXPLOSIONS!"
Mercenaries: Playground of Destruction
I think this is one of the best games that I have played since "Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas", that driving system is similar, but the shooting system is one of the best I've seen, and the fact that you can call an air strike, is, well, COMPLETELY AWESOME! I recommend this game for anyone who loves blowing stuff up, and shooting random things, and a little storyline thrown in there as well.
Game Saves: 10/10
I love that you can save your game wherever you want to. As long as you are not on a mission you can save your game.
I thought that the graphics for this game where awesome, the explosions look really cool. The vehicles are very well designed, and the missiles that you can fire from them look really cool. And the debris flying everywhere, and everything is well detailed. So over all I think that the graphics for this game are one of the best that I have ever seen.
The story line is there, and you can understand it, unlike most games, Lol. But the storyline isn't original, I think that they could do better. You get to control one of three characters, and go around, and do missions for the different factions. And you get to use a cool PDA to navigate. w00t!
The sound is amazing! When you hear an explosion, you know it's an explosion! (Most of the time you can usually see it too. And the voices for this game are okay, they sound pretty smooth. Although there mouths don't seem to be speaking the same words that you hear. And the music in the background is pretty cool as well.
I love the gameplay, because you can choose do run around and blow the crap out of everything, Lol. If you wanna' stick to the storyline and do the missions, you have a wide selection of vehicles, and weaponry, me loves me some big guns. And the game is very addictive, and great for road rage. The only problem I have with the gameplay is that when you fall into the water, wether in a car, or without, you always die. It sorta sucks, if you aren't looking at the map, and you don't see the water coming.
You can't get sick of this game, because if you don't want to do the missions you can go around and just blow up everything. And then shoot a few citizens, and call it a day.
The driving system is pretty glitchie', but if you can get past that you've got yourself a really good game, but you should probably rent it before you buy it, just in case you don't like it. I rented it, and then I played it, and after about 4 hours of playing it, I ordered it over ebay. I love this game. So overall this game, on my scale is a "w00t!".
