Just Cause 2 is one of those free-roam games in which story is actually boring or just a little bit repetitive. You'll play it but trust me when I say Just Cause 2 is best for messing around. You have a lot of weapons to explode things, a lot of vehicles to drive and crash and of course, enemy bases you can conquest and unlock for your friends.
If you get this, don't forget to download the multiplayer dlc for free, it's worth it.

Just Cause 2 is quite possibly the most fun I've ever had in a video game. Anything you can think of can be done, from playing tetherball with two 747s to attaching a Winnebago to a fighter jet. The game throws the laws of physics and reality out the window to give you an absolutely incredible gaming experience.
The graphics of Just Cause 2 are great for the time, and have aged fairly well over the years. The game doesn't restrict you like others do, giving you the feeling of absolute freedom. The story of Just Cause 2 is almost non-existent after the first few hours. I found myself focusing less on the campaign and more on making ridiculous situations with the help of my grappling gun and world props. The island of Panau is enormous with boatloads of content.
There are also mods to prolong the life of Just Cause 2 even longer, with the most prominent one being the multiplayer mod. This takes all the ridiculous fun of Just Cause 2 and adds your friends to the mix. This allows you to perform even more crazy stunts and tricks. In conclusion, Just Cause 2 is incredibly fun, and is a must-play for anyone searching for a great sandbox game.
This game is true masterpieceCARLEST | July 1, 2014 | See all CARLEST's reviews »
This game is true masterpiece. Explore nice island and do cool quests, what else would you want? I've played it some time, but I've never tried to finish the main quest, because I want to explore the island. There are a lot of trucks, cars, bikes, boats planes and helicopters to drive. There are alot a lot of cool guns to use. I would recommend you to buy the DLC collection too because it adds really cool things to game, like monstertruck, rocketlauncher and agency plane. This game is super funny. It is best with the multiplayer mod, where you can play with your friends and join other factions. I surely recommend you to get this game! Get it now!
Suprisngly good sand boxGosen | June 14, 2014 | See all Gosen's reviews »
This game looks awesome, has large map, where you have mountains, deserts, forests, cities and villages, just everything in one enormous zone. How you play this game - Forget about plot and spread chaos! Yes, you can destroy here lot of stuff, ride, fly or swim with lot of vehicles, move like a Spiderman with crazy gear and shoot everything you see. Just everything is possible, great sandbox, beautiful landscapes and CHAOS! Of course it's not rich in content as GTA and sometimes you can feel that there is nothing to do except destroying things, but come one - this CHAOS, this satisfaction, you can only feel it in this game. I would give 100, but plot and lot of empty space could be annoying, but in the end game is crazy and you have at least try it.

A personal favorite of mine! Just Cause 2 is a sandbox game with ALOT of freedom. The Multiplayer Mod is not available on steam which is amazing so you can play with friends online! Just Cause 2 has great graphics and physics as well. I found it very easy to get into the game and play as the character, this game is original and has it's own vibe. I have beat this on the Ps3 twice. I'm now playing it on my PC again, (plus there is multiplayer now for PC!)
All said, I highly recommend just cause 2. Just be you and have fun!
