We touched on the assignment system in Mercenaries 2: World in Flames and showed you what it looks like on the current gen. However, for all of you that haven't made the switch to the Xbox 360 or PS3 fear not, Mercenaries 2 is also hitting PlayStation 2. If you want to take a look at the linked video you can make a comparison, but our consensus is the PlayStation 2 version ain't half bad. The game comes out to you on August 31st.
I wonder if the game is worth picking up on any console though. Have the Xbox version and while it was fun, it was not ground-breaking by any means, and the sandbox aspect was laughable. By far the worst of it was the fact that at the end, it became a very static experience.
Pandemic has not yet convinced me that those problems are rectified.
