Are you looking for a sandbox with amazingly big and interesting world? Then stop searching now, because Just Cause 2 is just what are you looking for. It's a game that you can play for hours, using grappling hook to find new cities, military bases and new objects to DESTROY. More you destroy, more you unlock! There are also some story and fractions missions, but these aren't the ones that you would really care about. Because it isn't what matters in this type of games.
So you'd like to destroy some things? It is made for you.

It's an open sandbox game, so it's all about being creative. And I found a lot of ways to be creative. The controls can be a bit funky, and that's a big negative in this kind of game. But exploring and causing chaos in Panau is still fun. I just wish there were more ways to do so.
Plus, there's a multiplayer mod so you can chaos with your friends! Great fun and highly recommended.

I love this game, I really do. Whether I'm riding through the sky, on top of a place or tethering vehicles together and dragging them around. There's just a lot of ways to goof off. The story is enjoyable, as well. The game looks great, especially considering how unbelievably small the game files are. It's only about 4GB. You have access to several guns, which you can upgrade. Vehicles, as well. The black market lets you call down whatever you need. The guns kind of feel a bit lazy, though. They're fairly generic and don't have any real feel to them. But hey, you can dual wield SMGs so what the heck. The option of choosing what to dual wield is really cool. I personally went with an SMG and grenade launcher.
The game has a multiplayer mod, which I HIGHLY recommend. I played a lot of SA-MP for san andreas and it reminds me of that. You get an absurd amount of freedom and others to play with. You want the mayhem of having the ability to spawn nearly any weapon and vehicle and murdering each other with them? That's an option.
GTA Meets Max Paynevekktorious | July 25, 2014 | See all vekktorious's reviews »
Combine the open world atmosphere of GTA and the shooting mechanics of Max Payne 3 and you have the craziness that goes down on the island of Panau. The character plays as Agent Rico Rodriguez, a character with the personality and charisma of an action star, who is sent to Panau to find and assassinate his long time friend.
However, the true beauty of Just Cause 2 lies not in it's story, but in it's true openness and freedom. There are so many things to do and try, from stunts to gang wars and explosions, lots and lots of explosions. The modding and multiplayer community for Just Cause 2 are very much alive and will definitely add hours to your playing experience. The game is on sale often and hundreds of hours of fun can be had for extremely cheap. An excellent buy for any gamer.

One of the not that many open-world shooting games which makes it good. You can either choose to play the quests, driving cars,shooting at enemies or just play for fun around the map, shooting people, using your hook to climb up buildings and do whatever you want. One of the good things is that it has a multiplayer mod which is free and you can play with other players too, if the single player gets boring for you. The aim system is so realistic, the recoil,everything. It has a good storyline and the graphics too. You can blow cars, and do anything you want. If you ever wished for a shooter,action,open world single- multi player game this is the right choice. I prefer this one before the 1st one, because it has much more improvements in the gameplay, aiming,mechanics and driving which i really like.
