Mercenaries 2 is a lot of fun if you don't get bogged down by its rough-hewn minutiae and relish the simple pleasures of blowing things up.

For every time I cursed the stupid AI, I cheered at the demolition of another building. For every bug that got me stuck in some bushes, there was an attack chopper waiting to be jacked. If Mercenaries 2 had more polish, it would be a great game. As is, it’s still worth playing -- and enjoyable -- but falls far short of its promise.

Broken, buggy, and shallow gameplay leaves Mercenaries 2's world in flames.
Innumerable games strive for a cinematic vibe, but most fail to pull it off when they take themselves too seriously and overburden the gameplay with content better left in movies. Mercenaries 2 is the rare videogame that gets the balance just right.
Mercenaries 2 is a game that I enjoyed a lot when I first played it. I first tried it out on PS3 and it was all about...blowing stuff up mostly. That's the thing, you have to look at this game as the action title it is and just have fun firing rocket launchers and throwing grenades and stuff. There is a story, but it's thin enough for you to actually enjoy the game.
