Mercenaries 2: World in Flames
definitely lives up to its name. IGN recently snagged a new trailer for the game, and man oh man is it looking pretty.

As you can see, there seems to be a lot more of an emphasis on the story of the actual Mercs this time. And explosions. Christ, the explosions.

I know more than a couple of people who preferred the original Mercenaries to GTA, and while I don’t know if I’d be willing to go that far myself, I do know that it was an incredibly underrated game. It’s the only one that really lived up to its promise of complete destruction, and the boost provided by the next gen systems can only do great things for it. This is going to be one to watch out for.
The game will be hitting our shores on August 31, 2008 for Xbox 360, PS3, PC, and PS2. For more info on all the nifty weapons and vehicles you’ll use to kill people check their official site.
