The best part of Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D is the built in demo of Resident Evil: Revelations (Nintendo 3DS) which is one of the best games on the 3DS. Mercenaries has pretty good graphics but the gameplay is very simple and a tad boring after a few hours play. I found the graphics were a little jerky now and then which was off putting. If you find shooting a endless supply of zombies with no substance fun, then you may enjoy Mercenaries 3D more then myself. The fact that you can't delete your game file normally is a real pain in the butt. There is apparently a way of deleting saves stored on the cartridge, albeit via a bit of third-party kit. According to a reader tip sent to Siliconera, NDS Adapter Plus (Backup DS Save Games) is a little USB device which allows you to back up and manage your DS and 3DS saves via a PC. It also allows save deletion. Anyway I can't help but feel this game should have been added on as a bonus with Resident Evil: Revelations.
The other guy clearly didnt play mercenaries on RE5, this was never gonna focus on the story and it shouldnt be criticised for its lack of it, the game plays well despite the lack of second stick for aiming, makes turning corners a little awkward but its not so bad. Not the greatest RE title but its good to see more adult titles for DS/3DS, could be better menu system isnt brilliant and the control layout for the 3ds isnt suited to this type of game but it does well enough 7/10
This is a great pick up and play game!!got 10mins to kill, then start killing zombies! I have zelda which is the best longest game on 3ds but this is great,unlockables lots of levels and co op!yes you cant delete the 1 save file but the game is about beating your score and unlocking stuff and it comes with a demo of Revelations!this game is better than i expected!!
