    Mercenaries 2: World In Flames™

    Comes out on August 31st, 2008.

    Pre-Order it at Best Buy, and get a "Pre-Order Kit" which includes: codes for the 3 main character's unlocakable alternate outfits and also receive the game's Official Soundtrack on CD.

    You don't even have to buy the game when you Pre-Order, you can just get the "Pre-Order Kit" itself at Best Buy and not have to get the game.

    Then, you can Pre-Order it at GameStop and get: the codes for the 3 main character's unlocakable alternate outfits, a Mercenaries 2: World In Flames Mini-Magazine, and a Mercenaries 2: World In Flames Snow Hat.

    ^That's my plan for Pre-Ordering this game, and I'm sticking to it.

    Currently my favorite Video Game commercial:

    "Oh No You Didn't!"
    With all the explosively good fun in this game, I wonder if Michael Bay will be playing it too?:bay

    I still have yet to get a PS3. Sooo many versions I don't know what to buy!:( 

    And now I hear of them making an even better model for Christmas 2008?!?

    Oh well...someday I will play my special edition MGS4 and Mercenaries 2: WIF.

    In the meantime, I've been buying the games first. Then I will get the system.

    Aw damn. Oh well, guess I'll have to find someone else to blow buildings up with.

    And why do you hate the mohawk guy? I could understand it since he is the most difficult one of the 3 Mercs to use, but he is also the fastest.

    Who's your favorite Merc and why are they you favorite?

    Playing as Mattias is cool, the speed he has is awsome. I just hate his attitude. Hes my least favoriate becuase of that. I'll still play as all 3 mercs at least once when I play the game.

    In Mercs 1 I played mostly with Jennifer Mui, I liked that I had an option for stealth, but I never really exploited her advantage. I ran in guns blazing, making my play style more similar to either Mattias or Chris, probably Mattias sense I would focus on avoiding hits instead of taking hits.

    Check the circulars from Sunday (2 days ago) for the Best Buy Offer.

    Gamestop only has it advertised in-store, it's not even listed on their website.

    Hope this one's a bit more deverse then the first one, which was fun (bringing down entire buildings FTW), but a biiiit to repetive with some of it's missions, and a bit simple with the level designs.

    This mini-magazine GameStop gave me could use some proof-reading

    "You'll to jump pout before making contact..."
    "...if you're taking cover on yours screen..."
    "...which tried try to achieve..."
    "...you won't always have to be running while you do you're doing your gunning..."


    *edit* And now that I look at it, the M4 on the inside cover is a Tokyo Marui airsoft gun...

    Anyone get theirs yet? I got mine! :D 

    IGN seems to be the only place to have reviewed it. They gave it a 7.9 "Good" for both the X-Box 360 and the PS3, saying that they are exactly the same, and suffer from the exact same issues.

    http://ps3.ign.com/articles/906/906800p1.html
    http://xbox360.ign.com/articles/902/902767p1.html

    The issues with the AI strikes me as weird, because I've been watching this game for a while and the AI seemed MUCH better than it ever was in the first Mercenaries game.

    Hopefully someone will review the PS2 version, as there has been very little information and previews from it.

    Those reviews are sad to hear because I have been waiting so damn long for this game. It still sounds as the core elements of the first Mercs is there. But I am still going out this afternoon and getting this game.

    Right now, I can't play any PS3 games I have yet because I don't have a system.
    Sony has made so many god damn versions that I'm completely lost in what is available and what I want in a PS3.

    If the PS2 version is anything like the first, especially in terms of how and where you buy all your items, then I'll bite at that one as well.

    The next-gen versions seem to be geared more upon the spectacle of seeing amazing explosions and causing massive destruction. Along with the nicer graphics, it also has the online co-op to boast.

    Hopefully EA will make patches for this and fix the AI, and the bugs. I'd also like to see the things that were removed from the game restored back into it such as the flyable aircraft, leaking gasoline, spreading gasoline fires, more flammable elements, being able to cause massive wildfires, the zippo lighter to start fires, and the split screen offline co-op gameplay. Yes, it originally had offline co-op, along with the online co-op.

    The guy reviewing the game at IGN was right, for the time it took and all the delays , this game should have been much better and should have included the removed features I mentioned above^. Hell, the removed features are actually still found in most of the Advertisements and press releases for this game. That's disappointing and misleading to gamers and they should deserve what was originally promised to them.
