IGN posts first Mercenaries 2 review, no bed of roses seen

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.
