Ahh…The Problem With Being a Mercenary
With the exception of the GTA series, I really like free-roam games. Stuff like Fallout 3, inFamous and even Red Faction. But why no love for GTA? Well, I guess walking around and beating up people in a realistic sandbox environment, as opposed to one that is sci-fi or fantasy, is not my cup of tea.
In any case, I just started playing Mercenaries 2. I loved the original game on the PS2 but the transition from Korean war zone to sunny Venezuela on the PS3 felt a little lost in translation. For starters the graphics are just inconsistent and the controls are surprisingly archaic for a current generation game.
The yawns came right after winning 2 trophies; the lack of excitement is certainly a cause for concern. But this maybe due to the intense Bayonetta session (where I got my ass handed to me) prior to playing Mercenaries 2.
Anyways, I’ll be writing on whether the game has any redeeming qualities, so stay tuned. iPhone game reviews coming up next.
