"That's boom boom, and boom." Yeah, a whole lot of boom goin' on in this long-awaited sequel, which finally hits store shelves this weekend. Mercenaries 2: World in Flames should build on the solid structure set forth in the original title, which allowed us an open-field approach to the dangerous and exciting mercenary trade. You could ally with just about any side during an all-out war, and while that format may be slightly altered in the sequel, the purpose remains the same: wreak havoc! Accept missions for cold hard cash, analyze the situation, and achieve your goal whichever way you see fit. This could involve tanks, explosives, aerial strikes, or straight-up infantry firefights; either way, it's gonna be one hell of a experience!
