OK, so me and my freinds were debating on what game was more destructive by all means: Mercenaries 2 or DOW 2? Here's the load down: DOW 2 has massive armies that duke it out in now destructible enviroments, while it's new amazing graphics engine allow stuff like orbital bombardment or explosions seem almost real. Mercenaries 2 has billions of object to completely level. You can destroy anything. Like DOW 2, Mercenaries has a amazing graphics engine which makes everything more realistic. My vote goes to Mercenaries. Just face it. DOW 2 destructiveness 6/10 Mercinaries destructiveness 10/10. I love DOW, but since my freind wanted to know what more 'explosive', i've decided to make this thread.

how can you take a poll like this when the game isn't even out yet?

Have you played the first mercenaries? Almost every building/vehicle/object can be destroyed. Even though DOW2 is adding destructable objects I think mercenaries 2 will definatly have a more destructable enviroment compared to DOW2. So my vote goes to mercenaries 2.

Well to be honest, we don't know how destructible dow will be yet.

I say the most destructible game to this date is red faction. But to your poll

DOW is an RTS while mercenaries is not. And generally RTS tend to be on the lower scale of destructivness well maybe with the exception of spring, since map staticity is important to some level just changing it would have a negative effect on the gameplay. While a game like mercenaries can allow itself to be more destructive.

This is a lesson learned for all of us: The more explosions, the cooler the game (not exactly better).

This is like comparing apples and oranges. DoW 2 is an RTS and Mercenaries 2 is an FPS, the only thing similar is that each involves war.

Last note: It's not about what type of game they are, it's all about explosion factor. Just remember: 50% of the game is based off of game play, the 50% is literally explosions and death. Honestly you really can't deny that factor. If you did, whay the hell would you be playing manly video games?

True, and in that case I choose DOW2 because more blood and explosions. Like the orbital strike. And why have they made it so the sync kills only leave whole bodies? Especially when the Bloodthirster cuts people in half.

Because Relic is lazy. :D Dude, you started this on what game was most destructive, not most explosive... and DoW2 isnt out yet, so we really cant judge what a full scale war is going to do to the landscape yet, sooo, stalemate?
