Well…there should be a lot of action, right?

"The Expendables 2" will hit theaters on August 17, and people everywhere will flock to see a bunch of aging action stars tear sh** up. That didn't sound too complimentary but it's accurate, yes?

Anyway, Ubisoft has announced that a hard-hitting game based on the film will release as a downloadable title for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. It's actually a prequel to the movie, as a group of mercenaries with Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone) as their leader attempt to free a kidnapped billionaire. This game will focus on four-player co-op action online and offline, as Ross will be joined by Yin Yang (Jet Li), Hale Caesar (Terry Crews), and Gunner Jensen (Dolph Lundgren). We're not sure yet if other members of the movie cast will make an appearance.

But we're willing to bet the fans would want to see the heavy hitters; you know, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Chuck Norris, etc. Get enough recognizable names in there and maybe more gamers will try it out. Get 'em all pumped up for the movie, at any rate. Didja watch the first one?

Wow. Do we really need this?

It's a Ubisoft game. I predict a record price plummet, even for Ubisoft standards.

I watched the first one, it was alright. I just like seeing the action guys from the 80's and 90's and I'm a fan of Jason Statham. I was not pleased that Chuck Norris refused to participate unless they went to a PG-13 rating though.

Sorry not interested in a game of it.

Arnold: Terminator, make it happen.

I honestly dont get the premise of the movie… as far as having Mr. Chuck Norris.

Plot…

Opening credits…

A little dialog from actors not Chuck Norris.

Chuck Norris shows up. Performs roundhouse kick.

End credits.

Dump Jean-Claude Van Damme & replace him with chuck Zito & I'd buy it.

Loved the first one. I am really into the cheesey action flicks of the 80s and early 90s. Doubt that I will even play this. Mr. Norris and JCVD makes this a must watch for me

Completely agree. Movie yes, video game no.
