Mercenaries 2: World in Flames

With the help of some handycheatsand a hankering for destruction, fans were quick to discover the joys of stacking tons of vehicles before blowing them to smithereens.

Take a quick look through YouTube, and you%26rsquo;ll find all sorts of home-brewed explosions that gamers have captured likethis one- which features a meticulously crafted pyramid of helicopters detonated by tons of C4 explosives. And developers of the game%26rsquo;s sequel, Mercenaries 2: World in Flames have been watching. %26ldquo;We saw these videos of players using the helicopter winch to stack and arrange vehicles, and thought it was a cool idea%26rdquo; says lead designer Scott Warner.
