Mercenaries was a critically acclaimed game that came out in early 2005 for the Playstation 2 and Xbox. The oft-delayed sequel, Mercenaries 2: World In Flames has finally been released.
The game takes place in Venezuela in 2010. The player (Your choice of 3 playable Mercs) is on the trail for Ramon Solano, a political figure who hired you for a mercenary job. He double crosses and tries to kill you. Solano soon becomes the leader of Venezuela after a coup. He uses his position to seize control of the country’s oil supply, resulting chaos. You of course are hellbent on revenge, so your ultimate goal is to get even with Solano.
On your bloodthirsty path for revenge, you will encounter several factions all battling for control of Venezuela’s oil like Rebel Forces sympathetic to Solano, The Venezuelan Army, PLAV-People’s Liberation Army of Venezuela, the Rastafarian Pirates and The AN (Allied Nations) just to name a few.
Sounds like a wicked good time to me. Bring on the Napalm and Weapons of Mass Destruction!
