Xbox 360 PS3

Pandemic released this long video of Mercenaries 2: World in Flames showing the different way to play the same mission with each of the three characters in the game. Looks like the delay was very beneficial there, the framerate seems much better, with only a tad too much tearing.

LMAO @ the devs trying to make the characters seem different. lol. they're essentially skins so you can play as the token black guy, the white guy and the woman. dont pretend its anymore significant then that...i wish it was, but in mercs...it isnt.

does look good tho, they need to work on that framerate and screentearing tho...it was terrible.

I am very impressed so far!!!! I loved the first Mercs on the XBox.

This looks like it is going to be a lot of fun for quite a while....

Visuals are great (considering all the destruction)
Gameplay is spot on!
...

I don't really care about the rest!!!


Bring it on!

Love the gameplay even though you have your generic three characters, i love the grapple hook and there are more similarities between the the two guys than the girl so it should shape up for some awesome gameplay. The animations are amazing and the little mini game, i hope it's not the same every time though that would just get BORING

would be alot better if the action was more fluid and didnt stop everytime you took a vehicle for quick time events.

To be honest, i'm abit disappointed. The levels are pretty empty and uninspiring..they didnt show the destructablity properly of everything lik ewe saw a few trailers back.

Alot more work needs to going into the framerate and AI too.

i like it,

you can complete the objective 3 different ways

overkill is the best way, just don't care and do as much blowing up as possible

sweeet!

everyone plays differently i guess

some like doing it sneakily, some like blowing everything sky high and causing as much destruction as possible

i guess the game might be short and this way you can create alot of replayability. I can see achievements for each seperate class

They are, atleast...they were in Mercenaries 1 and I believe it's the same in this sequel. Though, you probably won't be able to shoot holes in the walls or even blast away pieces of a builing. It will most likely come down entirely at once. No real destructable environments, but it's a cool visual gimmick nonetheless.

As for the game, it's shaping up nicely actually...looks like loads of fun! I worry about the draw distance which isn't very apparent in this vid, but the previous vids I've seen show immense pop-in. Lets hope this one comes out well polished!

If you've played the first Mercenaries, I can assure you that all of them will be destructible.

the first mercenaries (a ps2/xbox game) was much more destructive then battlefield bad company is.

the game looks nice anyways, i just thought it was funny in the vid how the voice over said "now helicopters don't usually stand around waiting for you like that, i guess he didn't see him." no hiding that A.I stupidity mr director!

I think he was dumbing the AI down on purpose, as you wouldn't want to see him get killed during a demonstration. I believe this because if you played Mercenaries 1 on its hardest mode, the AI was completely brutal and unforgiving almost to the point of being cheap. And it just got worse as you progressed.

I know.. I want a single character that you can do everything with, OR choose the class later on etc etc. I also hate playing pre-made characters with specific abilities etc. It makes me feel like im playing on the developers terms, not my own.

I have a feeling 98% of gamers will play with Overkill.....Hm, I wonder why ¬_¬ lol

Maybe because they want to blow things up in a game that's created around the concept of blowing things up.
