Classic Game Room reviews MERCS for Sega Genesis released in 1991 by Capcom. Based on the MERCS arcade machine from 1990, this Sega Genesis (Sega Mega Drive) version of MERCS has similar gameplay with an arcade mode and original mode but lacks the 2-3 player co-op game play that makes these kinds of games great. As this is the spiritual successor to Commando (also from Capcom), fans of Commando and Ikari Warriors should enjoy MERCS’ reliable top down shooter gameplay where you run and shoot in the same direction. Fight waves of mindless enemies, burn people with a flamethrower and combat giant end bosses, MERCS delivers wall to wall action. This CGR video review of Capcom’s MERCS has gameplay from the Sega Genesis (Sega Megadrive) MERCS showing MERCS arcade style shooting videogame action.
