Images of Mercenaries 2

EA released these five images from the Xbox 360 version of Mercenaries 2, showing what seems to be the female (main?) character. With a planned release in the end of October, it can get some hard competition at the release.

Plastic dolls in Barbies world? Maybe that's what all EA games look like when you take away the grainy, brown look... j/k. ;)

Seriously, the main character looks like he's been just pulled out of the closet and the colors on the enviroment are just soo wrong...

Yea, graphics are outdated (sort of pandora tommorow time moment). But i am weak for this game, free roam for people with good taste. As for the definition of "good taste" i got this from wiki:

Kefauver: [holding up a recent copy of EC's Crime SuspenStories] "Here is your May 22 issue. This seems to be a man with a bloody ax holding woman's head which has been severed from her body. Do you think that is in good taste?"
Gaines: "Yes, sir; I do, for the cover of a horror comic. A cover in bad taste, for example, might be defined as holding the head a little bit higher so that the neck could be seen dripping blood from it and moving the body over a little further so that the neck of the body could be seen to be bloody."

Hard competition is an understatement.

Going by that tree this is going to get pulverised :/

For a giant, free-roaming open world, where everything its fully destructible I think it looks fantastic

WOW THAT GOIN TO BE A REAL HOT GAME

Looks okay for a free-roaming game but... I think the shots were carefully chosen to hide the flat lighting. So, maybe Just Cause is an apt comparison.

Just Cause looks great..accept the models

This game has much more interaction with the serrounding so stop complaining..
Mercenaries 1 ownd this one will own 2

Pic #3 looks amazing. This game, MGS4 and the next Socom are my most anticipated PS3 games right now.

The first mercs' gameplay was cool, so the sequel will probably be as good. Besides it's the first free roaming game with an entirely destructible environment, o it's not really fair to draw a comparison between this and just cause, which was good looking but became quite boring after a while.

Coming along...
Personally I'm looking forward to Lair, Uncharted, Little Big Planet, Home, Ratchet and the full Warhawk.

I think it looks ok for what the game is. Though if the game disappoints then the graphics have no justification.
Commented on 2007-06-28 00:13:31
So basically the trailer was from 360 version of the game? I'm curious how PS3 version looks... I hope a bit better.

Anyway, it's sad the gam doesn't have as good graphics as it should have. There's no hype because of that and a few people are actually excited about it. :(

Heh, I heard PS3 is lead development platform and if it has better graphics it will atract more gamers to the game and the game will have bigger fanbase. Though I doubt it will be looking better, if that was the case Pandemic would show us footage from PS3 version instead.
