IGN’s given Mercenaries 2 7.9/10, citing “numerous bugs, the terrible AI, and the lackluster missions.” Snip:

Mercenaries 2 is like a newsstand; it has a lot of issues. Still, I can’t deny that there were some hootin’ and hollerin’ moments. 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 have been a great game. As is, it’s still worth playing – and enjoyable – but falls far short of its promise.

And that’s that. Video review after the break.

    That Mercenaries 2 content we saw a video of this morning? It’s on Live now, and it’s free. Nelson says so. Blowing things up was never cheaper. Aside from the time you were forced to inflate your parents’ air-bed on that camping trip 25 years ago. Sorry.
