Sounds good, I wouldn't mind at least giving it another shot on the PS3.

I'm toward the end of the game and it's getting f'in HARD. The Chinese love to call in 2 or 3 choppers at once, plus their tanks and APCs on the ground. I just did a mission where I basically had to destroy a town, and the whole think was littered with APCs, rocket guards and helicopters. Only calling in superior firepower did the job... trying that on foot would have been a slaughter.

first patch for one of the worst games in 2008 has been released

When the user sets the shader level to low in the options menu, the user can set the shaders back to high again.
The user can now cancel a contract by using a controller.
The user can set the volume levels to high and low using the mouse properly now.
When the user fails to find another player using "Custom Match" the menu options function normally.
Joystick sensitivity now operates as designed.
Adjusting the view distance from the main menu functions properly now.
The user can no longer create accounts using "spaces" in their names, thus allowing them to search online for names properly.
Paper animations have been removed from the game.
All common 16:9 and 4:3 resolutions are now available.
****NOTE: DVI Cable connections will only return a limited number of resolutions****
Default brightness now works when selecting the "Default" setting.

while it plays fine on my box, destroy. It's not worth it.

I guess it's ok for the console guys/gals with a joystick (3rd person view) but for a PC game it's terrible. I can see why they released a demo after the game ships......

I don't just like it, I LOVE IT.

On console it is rough around the edges but still plays well, and looks pretty decent. It's not a AAA title but it is a great game for open-world enthusiasts.

It sounds like the PC port is trash, though. Shame.

The fun behind the average graphics.

This and GTA are really entirely seperate at this point... GTA is aiming more and more for realism, and Mercs 2 is about insane destruction.
