Sandbox shooting chaos.gamma_rad | June 10, 2015 | See all gamma_rad's reviews »
Did you like Mercenaries? then you're gonna love Just Cause 2. This game is all about the freedom of dropping into a sandbox world and wreaking chaos. Its amazingly fun. Your weapons? a grappling hook, a parachute and whatever vehicle you see, whether it be a simple bike or a fighter jet - you can jack everything. the Island of Panau is your sandbox to play. you can even jack a passenger aircraft and try to crash it into a building. Your goal? causing havok and chaos and generally making life hard to Panau's new dictator. The only noteworthy flaws I can think of for this game are: 1.the soldier VA is annoying repetitive, which is understandable given the amount of soldiers you mow down in this game but I'd rather they just be more quiet. 2.it isn't sure if its serious or not, The plot isn't very interesting and serves mostly as a rather weak excuse for you to come to the Island and cause chaos. but then again the game never commit itself to being as goes as crazy as Saint Row. If you do end up getting this game, be sure to also grab the excellent multiplayer mod for it.
Chaos is your new best friendarsyia | June 10, 2015 | See all arsyia's reviews »
Just cause 2 brings chaos to a new level. By adding new additions to just cause franchise you are definitely gonna spend hours and hours playing this game. If chaos Isn't your thing you can roam around in the vast map Just Cause 2 has provided you. The story is also a great addition to this game, it has tons of sides quests to keep you busy. The only con is this game has way too many glitches which could be funny at first but tends to be annoying later in game. Overall I totally recommend this game to those who like jam packed action games.
Chaos is the name of the game.Soapmac72 | June 8, 2015 | See all Soapmac72's reviews »
Just Cause 2 is the only game in which grappling people to planes mid-takeoff and surfing on top of cars as drive them off bridges are common occurrences. It laughs in the face of seriousness and sanity as it throws itself out of a burning helicopter. Graphically, the game is downright gorgeous; in my opinion, it's one of the best looking games of last gen. This is in spite of it's jaw dropping world size. In terms of sheer scale, no other game can top this Just Cause 2. Climbing to the top of the mountains and looking around is just staggering. With Just Cause 3 coming out later this year, now is the time to pick this one up.
Bang for your buck.Darkrai64 | May 27, 2015 | See all Darkrai64's reviews »
This is the only game in which I have spent so much time playing its demo. When I first played the demo on the xbox 360, I was hooked right away. I bought it on the 360 and played it for hours on end. Years later, I saw it on sale for PC for less than $5. I bought it again and I do not regret it. The graphics still hold up quite well and the combat is quite exciting. At times, I feel like I am invincible, but the game reminds me that I am not when my screen starts blinking red. The storyline is the weakest point of this game. There are only seven main missions and the storyline is basic. However, the strong point of this game is the exploration and the side missions. The world is huge and there are plenty of side objectives to complete. Overall, I would highly recommend buying this game, especially when it is $5 or less. It was worth the full $60 when I originally bought it.
You got your Rockstar in my Mercenaries.sycomantis1991 | May 26, 2015 | See all sycomantis1991's reviews »
Though it has a competent story, this game is truly all about the action. You have tons of amazing methods of getting around fast, blowing shit up, mercing fools, and accomplishing your goals how you want. It feels a lot like the Mercenaries games, which I personally miss, but if Rockstar got their open-world hands on it. it's a damn good time, and wit the third game coming out, it's the perfect time to check it out.
