Jester013's Briefs: Mercenaries 2

Since I've been so busy and because I know more and more people have short attention spans(anything over 1 minute on Youtube is usually criticized as too long), I'm going to start doing brief reports on games instead of in-depth reviews. My first one is on Mercenaries 2.

Game: Mercenaries 2
Platform: Xbox 360
Plays Like: An updated and better version of Lost Cause
Fun?: Yes
Multiplayer: Online co-op exists, but I haven't played it yet
Graphics: Decent but not great
Bugs: Not too many so far other than my helicopter pilot thinking he's getting shot sometimes when he's not and if your guy falls down a big hill, he just keeps rag doll sliding until he's not moving anymore which can take a while
Weird Things: It was released in stores on a Sunday for some reason. And it's kind of hard to get killed in the game.
Worth Full Price: Unsure as of yet. I like it, but it seems like it might be a short game...

Other Notes: The theme song from the commercial "Oh No, You Didn't" is awesome. I saw the same commercial once with just some classical music playing. It was definitely not as good.

Thanks for the recap. It is on my list to rent so I'm looking forward to trying it out. Glad to hear it is pretty fun.
