Images of Mercenaries 2: World in Flames

Pandemic releases some new images of Mercenaries 2. The game seems to be coming along quite nicely, and we can't wait to see how big and destructible the world really is.

Nothing on Xbox can come close to those graphics.
Commented on 2007-04-02 22:26:53
Some of the textures aren't there yet, but this is CLEARLY next-gen...

I know, but it just doesn't look like a 360 next gen game, more like a Xbox1 port to Xbox360 made by lazy developers :P


sorry thats just how it looks to me :)

I do know that some of these games look better when in motion or from player view. Cinematic screenshots just make a mockery out of these graphics.

Anyways, I know I should shut it :P since I always say gameplay comes fist, but that doesn't meen that ugly looking game is ok... They should put some full screen filter on it or something, and desaturate those colours a bit.

Looks like a next-gen game to me. Look at the 3rd screen. I haven't seen a jungle look that good besides Crysis. The 1st screen reminds me of a GRAW multiplayer map, with much better graphics.

Its one thing to make an open world game with good graphics, but one thats FULLY destructible is an even harder thing to do. Lazy developers is certainly not the case here.

You guys should seriously watch this game in action. The destructability of environments is most impressive. And that jungle looks amazing in the 3rd image. Plus, controlling boats like in the 2nd picture, will be awesome.

IIRC the jungle level in Perfect Dark Zero looks almost identical.

Nothing game on XBOX1 nor any game this gen to date has produced a forest that looked that good.
Commented on 2007-04-03 01:27:40
i really don't understand how people can say these graphics aren't next gen. These are pretty good for a sandbox game. The lighting is pretty neat, especially in the forests. Not to mention the amount of destruction you can do.
Commented on 2007-04-03 01:38:27
i know the whole destructability of the game will rock

But visually i think it isn't that great

I agree.

You can't have huge, destructable environments AND Pixar-style graphics. It's just a matter of fact. This game happens to favor the former.
Commented on 2007-04-03 07:56:21
I hope you can pick your persona, like in the original. Because that guys looks as stupid as ever. He was lame in the first one and he is still lame in this one.

This game is coming along well, especially if its a sandbox game.

World in Mercenaries 2 will be as big as world in Mercs1, but it won't be separated into 2 areas this time.
Commented on 2007-04-03 11:14:18
Visuals remind me of perfect dark, just less shiney

Wonga, they were massive in Mercs 1, except you couldn't see very far because of the 'fog of war' or something. I never really got a chance to explore the second area though.

I think it looks good enough, and if the destructabilty is there, I could care less how a building looks before I take a RL to it.

About the game


What's up?
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog it's the reason why the PS pro can't exceed the targeted framerates of the base console, even if it is more capable. it would create unfair advantaged. hell, you could argue it does already (1 minute ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @crookedmind: higher framerates = more responsive controls. pitting someone with a 25-30 fps version of BF4 with someone with a 50-60 fps version of BF4 would be pretty unfair. (2 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Tiz: I only played the Campaign in the Gears games, so can't say anything about Multiplayer. But Campaign wise, I stand by my previous comments. (1 Hour ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Judgement wasn't all bad though. Overrun is better than Horde and I wished if there was one thing the Coalition kept from Judgement, it was that. Instead of treating it like a horrid bastard child. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @Sdarts: Judgement changed too much. Stim grenades that gave you double life in gun fights wat? Ink downed you in a second? Verticality in Gears maps? Jumping off rooftops? (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Tiz: Gears of War: Judgement was a refinement of the Gears 3 formula, and was a great game in its own right. (4 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Phaethon360: I completely disagree with you. Gears 2 was shit, while Gears 3 was an excellent game. (4 Hours ago)
