Quoted from Descent 3: Mercenary Reviews:Check out these quotes from Descent 3: Mercenary reviews & previews
"Ultimately it's not as revolting as first looks make appear, and fans will probably have no problem getting into it for the couple of afternoons or so it'll last them, yet I'm still betting many of them will be as deluded as I am. For others, well, this certainly isn't a reason to convert to Descentism. At this point I can only hope Volition can bring this saga to the greatness it deserves with Descent 4."
"Have you ever heard the phrase, "Same Kool-Aid, different color?" If not, you can extrapolate its meaning and apply it here. There is very little about this expansion that can be deemed original or innovative. If Outrage had simply added more of the same great gameplay, I would have given Descent 3: Mercenary a better score. As it is, a truly fabulous game model has been reduced to mere mediocrity. There are a number of really cool features in this add-on, yet sadly, none of them live up to the high standards upon which the series is now judged."
"Descent fans will likely enjoy this new campaign into the world of action-packed corporate violence, and some of the new levels are really very good, while the rest are at least competent. Unfortunately, as an expansion pack for such a great gameespecially a pack done by the original's designersthere should be more here than simply a paltry."
"A new 7 mission mini-campaign, 4 multiplayer levels, and around 10 new robot enemies. The storyline is not that cohesive. A lack of outdoor areas, for which Descent 3 was noted. It's nice to have some extra levels to play around in, but it could have been a bit more polished."
"The original Descent 3 is an innovative and well-executed game. The action is furious, the special effects are dazzling, and the level designs are innovative and serpentine. Mercenary exploits that technology but does not expand it."
