I didn’t think I’d watch the Expendables 2 videogame trailer and come away not only looking forward to the game, but with a smile on my face too, but that’s exactly what’s happened; largely thanks to rather good turns from Terry Cruise and Dolph Lundgren and a aesthetic which looks something akin to an updated take on Contra (at least without the aliens).

Take a look for yourself and try telling me you’re not at least a little bit excited.

The game is download-only and due for release on PSN on 1st August with XBLA and PC versions following on 17th August.
