The usual wzzzzz-CRACK of the grappling hook connecting to a Boeing 747 you have just nicked, as a plan boils away in your head. The same metallic noise is heard as your arm disconnects the other side, snapping into the motorbike waiting next to you. A few explosives on the side of the Boeing, and you're ready.
You run up and jump into the gargantuan plane, holding down W as hard as you can. After a few skids and swerves, you ascend into the sky, your Harley dangling away behind you. After some distance, you rip open the door, flicking round to the top of the plane, as the wind flicks past your rather plastic-y hair, clacking your mass of weapons as they shake around in their holsters.
You slowly turn around, a small grin on your face, as you search for the bike in preparation for the ridiculously stupid idea you came up with.
Suddenly, you leap off the plane, triggering the explosives in the process, but you have no time to register the badass action, as you glide your body to the bike. Mashing E, you clamber onto the bike and start the motor (God knows why, what are you going to drive on? Sun rays?).
Suddenly, the smouldering carcass of the plane is next to you. You have a split second to guide the bike over, and land it on the plane, to your immediate disbelief. Brake.
Now, the calm bit. The plane slowly and sleepily glides down towards land, but to your dismay, it despawns. What do you do? Your plan is ruined! Or is it? You escape the bike's comfy clutches, and plummet past it, pointing your muscly, sexy body towards the crashing waves, and whip out your parachute. You flick out your Air Propulsion Gun and guide the bike away. After this ordeal, you clamber back onto it, and smoothly land on the road.
Only this game can make this happen. Nothing else can. Unless they have mods, but shhhh.

Just Cause 2 is just 2 fun. From the exhilarating grappling hook and weaponry to the awesome parachutes, your game will be filled with fun. It simulates amazing stunts and tricks, and also contains some cool DLC! This game isn't as high of a price as any other game like Grand Theft Auto, so it is a nice way to enjoy playing with your friends without having to pay as much. The multiplayer feature is amazing and makes the game play even more fun than it was previously in single player. Also, it allows you to hone your skills and be an epic player! The graphics are insane and it is ultimately just fun! Definitely recommended!
Quite awesome, but sadly repetitive.verolutoni | Oct. 28, 2014 | See all verolutoni's reviews »
Ok, firstly off, you might think this game is awesome, you're not wrong though, especially when you just love destroying things and cause all sort of chaos which you can do freely in the game world which is also pretty big for you to explore. This is also a great game for you to mess around with your friend on the multiplayer (but sadly, there's no npc on the multiplayer mod, which makes the huge environment of the game kind of "lonely").
There's only one thing that's bad about this game, it easily becomes boring. The gameplay is kinda repetitive, and it only has few weapon types for you to try on.
But well, I recommend you to buy this game if you really love messing around, destroying things and chaining people to vehicles with a grappling hook.

It may not be the best of games but man is it fun. Just cause is one of those games that is just fun not for any particular but for its quirky game play.

Do believe the hype for this game! An open-world sandbox for you to play. Blow stuff up, shoot enemy forces, and hijack vehicles in the sky.. It's a really, really fun game!
Campaign-wise, they're slightly repetitive. Don't think it's a really big issue because the locations you're sent to will be different every time. To progress and unlock more story missions you have to cause chaos around Panau Island, and being an open-world game, this means that no two people will have the same experience causing chaos.
What you want to do now is buy the game. It's really that good!
