a game by Capcom, Sega
Now this is some serious arcade action! Mercs is a totally fun and addicting vertical-scrolling shooter. It's a lot like Rambo, or Front Line for you classic game veterans. You boldly advance into enemy territory, shooting and bombing the bad guys while grabbing bonuses and power-ups.
Mercs is one of those games that's instantly fun to play, with bullets and bodies flying all over the place, and there are hordes of enemies to mow down. Besides manning weapons like machine guns and flamethrowers, you can also commandeer enemy vehicles. You can level trees and villages, creating total mayhem. With bosses like planes and tanks, you mission won't be easy, but you'll have a blast.
Imagine yourself as the best that American covert forces has to offer, the ultimate trained assassin. You've been called upon by the president to aid the government on a covert operation so secret, that standard military can't be allowed to get involved.
