Uh yeah, finally some Mercenaries News...
But yeah... nothing really new. What, delayed until summer? Oh man, this pain.
As I saw the first vids for this game I was so f... impressed. Now, when it comes out, there will be nothing impressiv 'caus every game will look like it, or even a lot better... sad.

looks terrible.

Does look kinda plastic.

Well, I'd say the first 2 pics are bullshots. But the other screens seem to be real ingame, if so, it looks good, regarding how big the game is, and what possibilities you have, how much you can destroy!!

Is that a floating building in picture 3? Just seems to be hanging in the air...

pictures do nothing for this game .... We need more videos because it does look great when its going. Same goes for GTA

@Rayko the game don,t look terrible when you look at the scale of the game :S

certainly looks better than GTA4 thanks to the destructible world, but still, open world always hampers graphics, need a demo to decide on this one

That looks awful, and how the hell could they have missed the glitch in pic 3.

I think it looks better than GTA 4 as well. Maybe it's the lighting and shadowing going on, but the aliasing doesn't bother me and the textures are definitely better looking too.

Looks shit if you ask me can i swear??
Commented on 2008-01-28 16:02:18
looks really good in motion you guys~! i saw it on xplay last year plus some of these pictures are over a year old
Commented on 2008-01-28 16:07:50
I'm pretty sure I've already seen the first 2 pics a long time ago.
Commented on 2008-01-28 16:56:35
looks nice, first one was awesome.......they need to get rid of teh jaggies
Commented on 2008-01-28 17:56:58
Yea there is some serious aliasing probs. Look at the waves in pic 4. Should look alot better in motion though.
Commented on 2008-01-28 18:16:51
the first 2 pics are SUPER old, i mean, the swedish guy is still wearing shades in the second image, something the devs ditched ages ago.

doesnt look great. but much like GTA this is going to be huge and theres gonna be a lot going on. plus its co-op so its visuals are forgiven for me.

Another delay :/

People are still judging games by graphics in the screenshots? 90% of next gen games look terrible in pictures, but look fantastic in motions. Go watch some video footage of this game and look at the difference :)

Also, much like with GTA you have to take into account the size of the massive free roaming world and the fact this fully supports multiplayer. I'm really looking forward to this, and the delays don't really bother me, if that's what it takes to make the game decent.
Commented on 2008-01-28 22:05:21
Yeah, we've all seen the game in motion and AA, or the lack there-of, isn't this game's main problem. It's not all THAT noticable in motion.

I thought the game looks pretty decent last time I saw it, but the real problem with this game is the pop-in. It's HORRIBLE!

The game looks like some good old fashion fun though, no technical genius or anything, but the first one was good and this one seems even better thus far.

Definitely on my radar.

Looks horrible.
Commented on 2008-01-28 23:26:29
3 things :

1. I think it looks a little worse than GTA4 in pics
2. I didn't like the first Mercs much at all
3. I'm still willing to give this a chance

Everyone knows this game is all about destruction

The amount of destruction you could pull off in merceneries 1 was awesome, i remember getting a mini nuke like gun and pretty much destroying buildings etc..take that to a next gen level and that is merceneries 2
