Are We Excited About Mercenaries 2?


Pandemic Studios' latest ludo-spawn, Mercenaries 2, is looking mighty explody. They've just released some new game footage with detailed developer-commentary over the top, which you can see beyond the click. The most sensible thing in there is also one of the more minor features, "vehicle disguise", which makes so much sense, and yet breaks the logic of most action games ever. I'm sure the idea of using a stolen enemy vehicle as a disguise has been used in plenty of other games, but somehow I just can't think of any.

The trailer shows how a single objective in the game can be tackled from multiple directions. Note to creators of games: we like this sort of thing. And we like this sort of commentated game-footage trailer too. More please.

But what about the rock, paper, shotgun scale of things, eh? Mercenaries 2 is out on 31st of August.
