[PSN Review] The Expendables 2 Videogame

Games based off of other media and entertainment licenses are usually less hit and more miss. The biggest culprits are usually those games based off of movies. Contrary to the name of this game, however, the storyline here takes place in between the first and second movies, but it is still based off of a licensed franchise. The question is, though, does it break the mold or is it something to overlook?

The Expendables 2: The Videogame Trailer and Info

Expendables 2: The Videogame will be releasing on July 31 for $14.99 as part of the PlayStation Play promotion on PSN allowing PlayStation gamers to experience the action first and giving PlayStation Plus members a promotional price of $11.99.

Building on the universe created in the high-octane, star-studded movies, The Expendables 2 Videogame invites gamers on an adventure to rescue an extremely valuable, kidnapped billionaire. It’s all business, until all hell breaks loose and the explosive mix of testosterone and kerosene detonates in a massive fireball that never lets up. The adventure concludes right where the new movie begins, creating a continuous story experience for fans of the Expendables’ hard-boiled brand of action.

Players can join up to three friends locally and online to experience all-out action in cinematic, close-quarter combat or while controlling an arsenal of vehicles in exotic locations including Somalian deserts, Burmese jungles, and more, and fans looking to compete for bragging rights can play through several challenges for the top spots on leaderboards.

Stay tuned, as PaulFierce and I will be partying with the cast Thursday night, and then playing The Expendables 2: The Videogame at Comic-Con and we’ll be sure to bring you our opinions of the game.
