      If you like games like Just Cause and GTA this is well worth a look

      Mercenaries 2 is an open-world action game set in a massive war torn world. A power hungry tyrant messes with Venezuela's oil supply, sparking an invasion that turns the country into a war zone. You are a mercenary and can carry out work for whoever you choose.

      I enjoyed this game, however I never completed it. To begin with it was fantastic and there is so much freedom you have no idea what to do next. The story line is interesting and varied but as with most games like this the real fun begins when you go on a rampage!! There is nothing quite like grappling up to a helicopter gunship, wrestling its pilot out of the cockpit and then unleashing its firepower on the unsuspecting people below!

      You must carry out missions for different factions so you can buy more equipment from them and these missions are often tedious, difficult, frustrating and boring. It is down to these annoying missions that I have given up on completing the game. I also encountered problems trying to run the game (random freezes and poor framerate) and, considering I can run crysis very well, was very disappointed. Especially when you see how poor the mercenaries graphics are in comparison.

      Overall if you enjoy games set in a huge free roaming area with tons of toys and stuff to blow up then this is definitely worth a look. I just hope you have more luck running it.
