Mercenaries 2: World in Flames is an action-adventure video game developed by Pandemic Studios and published by Electronic Arts for PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Microsoft Windows. It is the sequel to 2005’s Mercenaries: Playground of Destruction. The game is a third-person shooter with an open world, set in a fictionalised war-torn Venezuela. The game’s primary objective is to kill the President of Venezuela whose betrayal of the protagonist mercenary acted as a stepping stone to their current position.

I started a playthrough on August 20th, 2020 and, for the second time in a week, had a fight with the not-so-intuitive controls. This is a fun game, though, with lots of scope for exploration and wanton destruction. Enjoy the playthrough!
