Is it fun? Yes, it is fun.

+ Better story, cool voice acting.
+ Same great gameplay as the last, but with a smoother interface and more motivation to complete things.
+ Aiming and controls on 360 are rather good, stick movement smooth.
+ Rather polished, for an open world game.

- Voice comments from your character constantly repeat... I only played for a couple hours and heard the same comments over, and over, and over, and over...
- Graphics on 360 could be better... a lot of this is understandable due to the way everything can be torched and destroyed, but still... looks average at best. Lots of jaggies, weak textures, etc..
- On 360 there is no option to change the control assignments or turn off the aim assist.

All in all, if you liked Mercs, you'll like Mercs 2 even more. PC version should look a LOT better, but I don't think controls matter either way.
