Lots of images of Mercenaries 2

Lots of images of Mercenaries 2

Electronic Arts released this whole bunch images from the quite awaited Mercenaries 2. Taking the scope into account, it certainly doesn't look bad!

I dunno ... it looks decent.

But Just Cause looks like it had a better environment than this game does.

The first mercs is one of the games that taught me it's all about the gameplay..

Ofcourse kick ass graphics don't hurt too :D

But Just Cause wasn't fun. Mercenaries is INSANELY fun. This shouldn't be any different. And if you're wondering, they wanted to make a generic 80's action movie feel to it.

You are absolutely correct. :)

why? My avatar is a girl. Im not sayin the guy characters in final fantasy dont look feminine. But seriously, they went too far wit the design on that main character. I really dont know wat they were going for but it seems like they were very confused when designing him.

old game new lick of paint

hopefully the co-op online is good =D

All FF characters generally look identical

Quit complaining about graphics, the first one wasn't about realistic visuals and neither will this one
I wish we could have a topic for once where someone didn't complain about jaggies or graphics

Isnt that girl in the red suit the chick from that 3d Animatrix?
Commented on 2007-06-14 21:50:07
I think the character design is horrible but that's my opinion.

WTF is that. Just cause looks better than this.

I don't know man, too me this game seems a little off. The graphics are weird, I can't tell if it's intentially that way or not.

You are both wrong. I have had lots of fun with Just Cause. You just have to make it fun with the freedom that it offers.

This Mercenaries 2 looks ok. And if the game area really is vast, then I am interested.

ahah, amusing thread! It's so interesting to see how different people's sensibilities are, what one thinks is jagged awful crap, someone immediately thinks is cool and badass! I for one think that the art style in this is doubtful to say the least. i mean, i don't want to play as this low life junkie!

Manager, Blim, Snoops, whoever - this gallery was tagged to the original Mercenaries game as well.
Just thought you'd want to know.

Thanks.

Just Cause had incredible environments when compared to this crap. Mercs does seem to have better lighting and car models. Still, environments have a MUCH bigger impact for games like these.

Well its nice hi def Ps2 game, just cause its better than this one.
Commented on 2007-06-15 05:51:10
Some of the graphics are hit or miss, but overall I think it looks good. If only they could get that facial animation system like what is being used in Uncharted Drakes Fortune. They all look like they have faces made of stone, no emotion.
Commented on 2007-06-15 06:41:36
kind of ironic that the first game was one of the best looking xbox and ps2 games wen it was released. now its one of the worst looking xbox 360 and ps3 games released.

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX They're going to wind up harming consumer friendly service models as much as they will punish the bad ones. And I feel like stuff like SWBF2 will be appropriately punished by the market. (22 minutes ago)

    droezelke @GriftGFX: No no. They say: yes it is gambling, but we have to investigate further hoW EA does it to determine if it's gambling. It's a weird interview. (6 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX They're probably struggling to understand how it's different from a variety of other products on their shelves. (7 Hours ago)

    droezelke EA as 'randomised lootboxes'. I think the gaming industry has a strong lobby.... (7 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Tiz: Just read an interview with the gambling commision on the lootboxes in BF2. They have to investigate if what EA offers really is based on chance. Wait, what? That is proven and is advertised by (7 Hours ago)
