No you didn’t miss the first Expendables video game, don’t worry. If you missed the first movie, though, you need to let that shame seep deep into the core of your being because that flick changed everything. Not really, but taking in that first The Expendables film would push your excitement-o-meter to “10” on today’s news that there will be a The Expendables 2 Video Game for PSN and Xbox Live Arcade.
(Hold the yuks for later because we all have to get through this together).
In this “explosive mix of testosterone and kerosene” you’ll be able to take control of Barney Ross, Hale Caesar, Gunner Jensen and Yin Yang aka Rocky/Rambo, Chris’ dad from “Everybody Hates Chris”, Ivan Drago/He-Man and Romeo Must Die. Cooperative gameplay online or locally will take players through exotic locales that at least include Burmese jungles and Somalian deserts. If you can take those locales, surely you’ll be able to handle the remote hideout of a villainous despot. While described as a shooter with both close quarters and vehicular combat, it’ll be a challenge to nail down the specific genre on this one.
Look for more on The Expendables 2 video game and enjoy this initial batch of screens.
