When the tagline said “World in Flames,” we didn’t… Never mind. IGN’s given the PS2 version of Mercenaries 2 3.9/10, which for IGN is pretty, pretty bad. Snip:

The original Mercenaries came out three-and-a-half years ago. But instead of giving us a game with more than three years worth of updates, Pi Studios has actually taken three steps backwards. Mercs 2 looks worse, plays worse and is just plain worse than the groundbreaking original. Why this watered-down version was even published is a mystery. Were this game fun, with the missions structured in a way that made them enjoyable, then there’d at least be a reason to rent. But there’s nothing here to recommend. Mercenaries 2 on PS2 is a bad game. ‘Nuff said.
