The first 10 minutes : Mercenaries

The first 10 minutes : Mercenaries

I've finally received some new games to take a look at, so it's with great pleasure that I present you this "First 10 minutes" of Mercenaries. The game is certainly not the greatest ever, but any action fan should really give it a try. A very nice mix of the freedom of GTA with a much denser action.



Je ne vais pas vraiment en écrire long sur ce jeu, il a déjà été testé un peu partout et je suis certain que vous en savez déjà assez. Je tenais juste à signaler l'utilisation du fameux moteur Physique Havok 2.0 que j'ai essayé de montrer dans la vidéo, un jouabilité tout à fait correcte (les passages à véhicules auraient été plus agréables avec les gachettes) et des graphismes sans génie mais qui sans compensés par une animation relativement fluide malgré les effets spéciaux parfois bien nombreux à l'écran.

Sans être un chef d'oeuvre, Mercenaries est une bien bonne surprise, à conseiller à tous les fans d'action.

    Melmoth @AndreasZ94: for consoles 3d gaming (with a few exceptions) started with the 32bit era. for people playing on computers they's been a steady stream of 3d games from back to the early 80's (6 Hours ago)

  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 @MrWhite: I feel like its the enemy reactions to getting shot that's the real problem, they recover so fast and act like they never got shot (8 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @AndreasZ94: I've only played a bit of U4, but from what I did, it wasn't a big step up from 3. (9 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Ellie helping you out in melee situations was fun too. It's their only game where they made some good gameplay design elements when it came to enemies. (9 Hours ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 @MrWhite: Are u talking about U4 because i feel like the gunplay was pretty good, same for U2 (9 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @AndreasZ94: Certainly their best game of combining both, hence why I think its their best. They got the pacing right, but it also had a extra element in horror. (9 Hours ago)
