Storyline

North Korea seems to be opening up to the outside world under the rule of Choi Kim. However, his son, Choi Song, a top commander of the North Korean army, leads a coup that has the leaders of North and South Korea killed. North Korea descends into isolation, and it is revealed that it has exported nuclear material to outside terrorist groups. In retaliation, North Korea is overrun by outside forces and Song goes into hiding. But the threat is not yet over; Song has access to nuclear missiles and threatens to use them on the outside world. Each faction in the country has its own agenda: China seeks to annex North Korea, and South Korea has the same goal in mind. The Allied Nations (a parody of the United Nations) seeks to restore peace, while the Russian Mafia seeks to profit from the instability. All four factions are fighting the North Korean military. The player must work with each faction in order to find Song. Written by Sam

Insane!
4 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Mercenaries is the best game I've played in ages. It borrows various elements from other games and brings them together into one great package. In the game, you play as a mercenary in North Korea. Here, you see the insanity of war. As you drive along the roads, you see the various factions fighting each other. The relations between the factions are perfect. The Russian Mafia is enemies with everyone, the South Koreans and Chinese are enemies, and the Allies are friends with everyone. As you play the game, searching for the "deck of 52", you must juggle your relationships with the various factions for maximum cash. Don't miss this game. Go. Get. It. Now!
