Mercenaries 2 launch trailer

Mercenaries 2 launch trailer

Mercenaries 2: World in Flames will be released today in the US, and next week in Europe, and this game certainly didn't get the hype I thought it would. So here is the launch trailer, the last chance for this game to shine!

Can't wait to get my hands on this game. After so many dissapointments like Too Human, BFBC et cera this one looks like it's all about fun!

I read it has many bugs and glitches though but still it doesnt ruin the gameplay.
Yesterday they had live stream on <23c4>http://www.justin.tv/digitalempireif, if any1 is interested in watchin, but atm its down, prolly the guy who played the game went to bed:)

Oh and this is my first post here although Gamersyde has been my nr.1 site for news and videos for last two years so, hey every1:P

Welcome aboard, NinjaKlan. About time you stepped out of the shadows. ;)

As you, I can't wait to get my hand on Mercs2. The destruction on play in this game is impressive. I hope it will be a blast (pun intended) to play.

initially I was a 100% sure I'd buy this game, but it seems that the tearing actually got worse ... very dissapointing with all the delays and such ... can someone tell me if it's still there in the final retail? thx ;)

I love the song in the TV commercial, but as for the game I think I'll skip it.

Meh, I really dont care about jaggies and not so nextgen graphics, at least the game is fun and nonrepetitive. Somehow I grew tired of all nextgen titles with superb graphics but no good content and judging by the live stream I watched earlier, Mercs 2 really is about fun, so it's a day 1 buy for me. Too ba dit hasn't been leaked in EU aswell :(

The release date is Sunday in the US, not today, although a fair amount of retailers are selling the game early. I've seen a LOT of ads for it in the US, especially considering how rarely I actually watch TV.

I have the game preordered, and I'm looking forward to it, I've heard the game has a lot of bugs, and doesn't really go that far from Mercs 1. Personally I actually didn't like Mercs 1, I found it boring, but all the gameplay videos I've seen of this make it look more fun to me. I think the graphics are actually pretty good based upon what I've seen, but I just bought Disgaea 3 and I'm enjoying it, so you can see how I don't really care that much about graphics.

Finde es sieht super aus und macht sicherlich genauso FUN wie Just Cause oder Crackdown!

Anyone in the Netherlands get this game yet? If so, I'm getting it tomorrow.

The game has it's issue's, and it goes against my principles to get an unpolished/unfinished game like this...but I just can't resist, even after reading the rather disappointing reviews (yes, I always take reviews seriously and don't discard them just because they don't tell me what I want to hear).

Otherwise, I'll return it the next day.

Blow stuff up.

Blow stuff up again.

Blow the holy living hell out of it!


I loved Mercs 1. I'll finish GTAIV first, then I'll get this.

Bugs and glitches I can deal with, but this game pushes it's luck with glitches that force you to quit the game entirely.
