      Just cause it's brilliant.

      Just cause 2 is at first glance another attempt to cash in on the open world sandbox which has been dominated by grand theft auto over the past few years. Though get past a massive world in which you are free to do as you please and you will quickly realise that just cause 2 manages to solidify it's own place within this ever popular genre. The biggest credit that just cause 2 earns is in allowing the player the tools and means to have a great time. For example, in allowing the player the use of the grapple hook, they not only provide a fun and alternative mode of transport that few games offer, but they then allow players to tether items in the world together for endless amounts of fun. A helicopter using a car as a wrecking ball? It can be achieved. Attaching an enemy to a gas proppeld canister ? Hilarious. Many things such as this can be done and it enables the game to immediately by pass comparisons to games which would otherwise possibly detract from the experience. By this I mean no game will ever come off well when being compared to grand theft auto, a game which is carefully constructed over a log development cycle and manages to retain a high standard in almost all aspects such as story, gameplay and multiplayer. By carving it's own path just cause 2 has allowed itself to be the master of it's own creation, it is simply a game in which you will have a ton of fun. There is no intriguing story, the characters are bland yet ocassionally amusing due to their seemingly (and hopefully) over the top nature and the world could do with more NPC's in order to fully match the beautifull and large nature of the map. A more variety in the gun department could also make this game even more unique. A massive improvement then over the original, and one that has announced itself in the gaming world as truly one of a kind.

      • "Best Game"

      Disadvantages

      Best game! Five Star! Must get it NOW! Many vehicles weaponry and great story.

      This game is absolutely astonishing. There is no way better to put it than you must get this game on whatever platform you own! If you have played the other game Just Cause then you will love this game even more than that one it is much better and if you didn't like that then still check this out.

      You will as a guy named Rico. This guy has a special ability and works for many different organisations [Spoilers so i'm not putting them] He has a special ability which makes him able to grapple from location to location with his grappling hook. As you explore the island you get in trouble with the Police and get to fly military aircrafts and fly around in style with luxury jets or Fighter aircrafts. You can pretty much drive everything that moves with wheels. The only thing you can't do is enter buildings which would be a great add-on if they created Just Cause 3. The graphics are too good to be true especially as this game is kind of old and should be seen more by many people.

      The community and modding community is fantastic there is a such thing as Just Cause 2 Multiplayer available only on the PC. I won't talk much about that as that doesn't come with the game and you will have to download extras for that. The actual game has many weapons and is based in Third person where you can see your character move shoot and cause Chaos around the island. When you cause "Chaos" It gives you money to cause this you must blow stuff up terrorise stuff raid military bases. Your the kind of good guy who doesn't kill civilians though. That won't cause Chaos.

      I recommend this to anybody who loves open world and loves good graphics and action packed gameplay. Best game ever.

      Disadvantages

      So much promise and potential, with little offered

      Riding the crest of the go-where-you-want, do-what-you-want wave, it presented players with an island of unparalleled beauty: its glittering seas stretching far to the horizon, its sun-kissed beaches giving gamers a very real glimpse of open-world gaming''s promise. There was one snag though: for all its holiday snap looks, it didn''t give players very much to do. Or rather it did, but none of it was that interesting ? not after the first time, and certainly not after the hundredth. What that game needed ? and practically everyone who played it for even the briefest time remains in agreement with this ? was a smaller landscape and a more tightly focused and varied diet of wanton destruction for the player to feed on. Except developers Avalanche don''t agree. Unlike the first game, where the environment was curiously unaffected by your actions, your activities on Panau have a lasting impact on your progress. For example, taking enemy strongholds for a faction will increase the gang''s influence in that area. Collect hidden vehicle and weapons parts and you''ll be able to upgrade your ever-increasing arsenal of grenades, SMGs and rides for land, sea and air travel. As if they hadn''t done enough, Avalanche have also refined Rico''s controls ? specifically his grapple hook. While certainly handy the last time around, it''s now much easier to use, and much more integral to the game. Locking on to vehicles, specifically helicopters, is now super-simple. You can attach it to any surface to zip-line towards it (allowing you to scale buildings) and the improved range makes it possible to cover distances that would otherwise be laborious on foot ? a godsend, as you''ll often find yourself with plenty of ground to cover if you lose your vehicle somewhere away from civilisation.
