Reviewer: Juho Kourikoski
Excerpt: "Technologically, the game is somewhat impressive, but it simply can't live up to the expectations. Small mistakes are painfully evident, and drag down what is otherwise a well-executed game. With decent controls, working AI, ballsier annihilation and the removal of needless time limits, Mercenaries 2 could've been an enjoyable shooting experience."

Reviewer: Jon Cato Lorentzen
"You end up with a relatively bland tasting action game that finds it hard to motivate me, and that contains a lot of frustrating elements. That said it is still an action game that has its share of great moments in between the weaknesses."

Reviewer: Petter Hegevall
Excerpt: "All the addictive freedom that World in Flames contains should be applauded. However, overall this is a disappointment and an distinctively average action game."
