According to ESRB, this game contains: Mild Language, Violence
Parents should be more concerned than the box rating suggests. This is a game about being paid to murder people—sure, there's no blood, but that's the only thing that keeps this one under the ESRB's radar. It's safe for older Teens, but the game's subject matter sits pretty squarely in the M region.
Oh, and for those worried about racist overtones, there's nothing worse than a villain in the game named "Chin Chang."
Grand Theft Auto Fans looking for mayhem of a slightly less vicious and unpleasant nature may find the massive explosions and destructible buildings of Mercenaries highly enjoyable.
Star Wars Fans looking to fly a Russian attack helicopter as Han Solo should pick this up immediately, as it'll likely their one and only chance to do so.
Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers should have no real trouble with the game. All important dialogue is subtitled, and there aren't any important audio cues that don't have a visual counterpart.
Nothing relevant to this conversation, that's for sure! Because we're here to talk about (sorry, write and read about, respectively) GC_Danny, who's updating this profile for the first time in thirteen years!
So let's take a gander back at that time and see what's happened! In addition to writing hundreds of video game reviews, Dan produced a book that can be legally purchased by almost anyone! He also wrote two short films, two episodes of television, and two movies! Although, sadly, and through much fault of his own, the movies have yet to be released.
In addition to general game reviewing, he's also dabbled in more long-form work, writing some of the longest and most comprehensive game reviews of all time. Then there's his non-GameCritics blogging, where he's famous as the world's foremost expert on the TV show Criminal Minds, as well as the co-host of a weekly podcast - he's even working on a new videogame/critical experiment, which you can find out more about here!
If all that wasn't enough, just a few months ago he rebranded himself as 'The Hidden Object Guru', hoping to stake another claim of ultimate expertise, this time over a genre of casual games! Will he be successful? Only time will tell, but you're free to join the thrilling ride at his YouTube channel!
