A beautiful action packed sandbox gamethegaminglyfe | June 8, 2013 | See all thegaminglyfe's reviews »
This is my second favorite open world sandbox game, and I've played a lot of games in that genre. The map in this game was the largest in a game when it came out and all of that map was beautiful. The jungles are lush and vibrant, the cities are bright, large and blooming with life. This is the first game I've watched the sunset over the jungle, it was that nice. The story is pretty good and there are about 7 missions. But here's the catch, to progress you must reach a certain level of chaos. You get chaos by doing faction missions, side missions, taking over areas etc. The amount of chaos to unlock the next story mission is quite a bit and will take a long time to get. The combat in this game is amazing, especially because of the grappling hook. You can tie enemies to objects, pull them toward you etc. And yes, you can hook them to your car and drive away. The soundtrack and sound effects work perfectly with the game. For $15, this is a must have steam game.
A GTA that requires you to wreak havocTCass29 | June 8, 2013 | See all TCass29's reviews »
Just Cause 2 is a fun game with an UNBELIEVABLY expansive world with little-no wait caused by loading times. There are plenty of guns and vehicles to keep you occupied for quite some time.
In most games, you complete quests to unlock new quests. One of the main features in this game is that you must murder and cause general destruction AS WELL as complete quests to unlock new quests. It's very interesting and a good way for a game to encourage you to do what you were probably going to do anyway.
The quests do get a bit repetitive (go destroy this place, go murder all of our enemies here, escort this NPC to such-and-such), but it's a good action game.
Just Cause 2: a very well made game!mutsuriini | June 7, 2013 | See all mutsuriini's reviews »
People who like the gta series of games will love this as is along the same lines as it but also has a lot of different features. One of my favourites is the grapple and the quick and cool travel is gives the player and how it works seamlessly with the parachute for long distance travelling. The black market is also a very nice feature as it allows you to get equipment quickly and easily without having to fiddle with cheats or search for ages trying to find a shop to get it from. Overall I think it is a great free roam game that will appeal to many people as you can either play through the story and different gang quests or simply just mess around playing around with no real objective and just having some fun.

If you're looking for an alternate game similar to GTA, this is the game for you. The game is action packed with all the car stealing with fast paced shooting and grappling hook action. There really aren't many games that allow you to explore an entire island by hooking onto the wing of a plane flown by an NPC. That being said, there isn't much else to offer. The missions get old pretty quick (though there are some pretty exciting ones later) and you'll find yourself escorting dumb NPCs from point A to point B time and time again. You might find yourself getting bored once the action wears off, but its still a pretty decent experience. I also recommend playing a controller not the keyboard.
