A decent destruction sandboxheerox328 | Aug. 24, 2015 | See all heerox328's reviews »
This game is by no means perfect. The story is bland. The graphics aren't that spectacular. Even the combat is rather uninteresting. Where it stands tall is the level of destruction and the mayhem you can cause. If you don't mind having a mindless experience just blowing stuff up, this is the game for you. If you want a bit more substance, I'd pass on this one. The game can get boring incredibly fast and is way too large with how little content actually litters the world. This would be a great test to see if perhaps you'd like to get Just Cause 3, which is essentially the same game with just prettier visuals and better destruction.
A hilariously brilliant gameChlorophile | July 16, 2015 | See all Chlorophile's reviews »
Just Cause 2 isn't a particularly sophisticated game and it knows it. The story makes absolutely no sense and neither does anything else. Essentially, your task is to "help" the oil-rich nation of Panau the American way - by blowing absolutely everything up. It's ridiculously good fun and it is truly an open world experience. You can do whatever the hell you want and the map is gigantic and looks stunning. It took me a good 100 hours or so to get out all this game has to offer and bearing in mind it's often on offer for £2.50ish, it's amazing value. There's also a multiplayer mod which adds yet more gameplay.

This game is so much fun. There's so much to do and so many ways to blow stuff up. But there's also some big problems. The air vehicles are terrible to steer. The helicopters are not exactly like helicopters at all, you go forward/backwards/sideways with WASD, and the mouse is just for aiming. But the airplanes are even worse. They are only steered by WASD, which terrible. Also, the grappling hook, like the trademark of this game, is bad too. It's so weak. It breaks super easy, which makes so many cool things impossible without mods. I mean, if I try to grapple my another car to my truck, it breaks. If I try to grapple a play to like anything, it breaks. It's awful. But except these problems it's great fun. It's just that the developers so easily could have made this more fun. It does also crash 4/5 times when I'm launching it on my computer.
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.
