    I just got Mercenaries 2 and the game at least on my computer is a LAG fest, no matter what resolution or settings, the game runs slow as heck.

    BTW, 1680 * 1050 is not detected.

    In my system i can only choose between 1280 * 720 or 1920 * 1080...

    I agree,its a pos.On mine i tried it at 1280x1024 with my card stock,result 14fps,even with my card at 700/1100 i was still only getting 14/5fps.

    It seriously needs a patch or something.

    I did turn that off,but it still runs like crap considering my system and what i know it is capable of.I think i will hold off on it untill they release the first patch.

    I do think it has potential this game,but i would rather wait than run it like it does.

    Ok i just turned off water effects and helped A LOT.

    You can have water quality to High but if you turn On water effect, it kills the frame rates.

    Without water effect On the water is just a big blocky green texture, horrible :(

    Game is a bugfest, i just destroyed a little building and the pieces that felt apart did not have textures, instead of textures it was just a repetition of the rest of the world.

    Also, there was this guy shooting from a turret from a second floor, i blowed up the building and the turret stayed in the air...

    Gonna keep playing a little bit, trying to ignore it all...

    It's funny, the first one was a rare case of the demo being better than the game. In the demo, everything was destructible, in the full game, I ran a hummer into a chain link fence and bounced off, complete BS.

    Now this is is a complete buggy mess. They just can't seem to get it right, shame too, cause it is such a great concept.

    such a crap fest

    i wish it would be decent from the start patches are meant to add to games or fix various unfound or new bugs not make the game playable, its a disgrace we should not put up with this

    we should all email the developer asking why its so BUG RIDDEN

    wonder if its like this on console?

    This is a console...Don't buy it for the PC. One of the funnest aspects of the game is the coop on the console version.

    PC gaming isn't going down the tube, it's the fucking ports that are so bad. When you actually get a PC only game, 99% of the time, it's good. In fact, I can't think of a single game, cept maybe Oblivion and splinter cell that has been developed for both PC and console that has been worth a damn on both systems..

    Aw, was thinking of buying this game... It looked cool on the 360, well and had high scores from GT... This blows!! Was hoping to get it for my lappy :) which is helluva better than my desktop lol. Seems I've gotta wait for a patch.
