    Surprised there wasn't a thread for this. It's one of the games I'm most looking forward to this year, as the first was one of my favourites on the original Xbox.

    Extended preview at 1up.com

    They're looking at the PS3 build but, as we all know, the 360 version will be identical (if not better) - or, at the very least, ten quid cheaper. All looks lovely so far.

    Screenshots look a little meh but it could be a good physics engine might make it fun.

    The last, although good, always seemed to be me to be more like a novelty. Once it wore off I never felt compelled to play it anymore

    There isn't actually a 360 version announced yet.

    But you know damn well there'll be one. :-)

    Good news, the first could have been so much more, but was lots of fun. I wish they'd make it BC...

    It hasn't TECHNICALLY been announced...

    But I dunno, do you think the 360 will be able to handle it? The 1UP article screams TEH REALZORZ N3XT gŁN!

    I was hoping it was the sequal to speccy/c64 game.

    I liked the first one, mostly for it feeling a lot more "solid" than the GTA series (which I also liked), that, and some of the awesome set-pieces (driving a super-car across a warzone while dodging tank shells was always a good one).

    Needs coop badly, however.

    needs coop and death match now that would
    be good. maybe some nice new jet fighters
    and bombers cool. : )

    The first one needs a mid mission save during that last mission i tells ya, i loved the game, but i gave up in frustration on that last mission, which may or may not put me off the sequal depending on if i go back and get more worked up about it.

    Very reminiscent of Just Cause, isn't it? But possibly not quite as nice looking, and with what has to be some of the worst character design I've seen in a while.

    Kinda struggling to get too excited about this really, I didn't really get on with the original though which doesn't help. Agree on the coop though, that could make it a lot more appealing...

    I imagine that EA signing Mercenaries 2 up all but confirms we'll see it on the Xbox especially as EA and Microsoft seem to be so friendly these days,

    I liked the first game, even if I haven't gotten around to finishing it yet.

    The sequel looks promising enough.

    published thankfully isn't quite as nasty as developed so it won't be SO bad.

    Live gameplay demo (from E3) but it's things like that that make me think I won't be getting GTA IV, in any kind of hurry. Oh, and Saints Row 2, just the mere idea of it. Off-topic though that one is.

    It's all gone very quiet on the Merc front, considering it's supposedly not that far away from release.

    Have any slippage notices been announced? I've still got it down as 14th sept...

    I quite fancy this as although I passed the last one over, several mates said it was good destructive fun. A gameplay demo would be handy nearer the time, though, as there's going to be a lot happening on the 360 round that time...

    agreed on the demo front. the demo well and truly sold me crackdown and bioshock.

    i was one of those that loved the original game on xbox. its the only remaining xbox game i have left and its backwards compatible for half an hour. crashes after that.
