Sandbox game with a grappling hook!sweetcuppincake | May 14, 2013 | See all sweetcuppincake's reviews »
Sandbox games are great for the freedom they give you. So why play JC2 instead of any other? It takes place on a dictator-controlled island in the Pacific, where you are tasked with overthrowing the government. There's lots to do in that regard. You get rewarded for destroying military infrastructure and causing chaos in general. One really great feature in this game is you get a grappling hook and a parachute. You can hook cars together to crash them, glide around the large island, and climb buildings with ease. It's pretty fun to just goof of and not even worry about the plot. Currently, there's a mod in development to play online with hundreds of people. I've played with over 1000 and the chaos and mayhem is outstanding. Worth getting the game just for that, but on it's own it is pretty fun too.

Just cause 2, The game responsible for me getting back into GTA styled games. This game was great.
Graphics for its time are good, the controls are ok (its tricky to steer vehicles on keyboard, and tricky to aim on Joypad) but the story is fun and there is plenty to find

A sandbox in the truest sense of the word, Just Cause 2 allows us, through the avatar of Rico, to ignore structure and reality for as long as we desire, for the purpose of creating complete destruction. In fact, the way to progress through the game is just that - destroy stuff, raise a Chaos meter and unlock further content and zones. The grappling hook and parachute mechanics are masterfully executed, making it a snap to jump out of an airplane and latch on to a tuk-tuk before hitting the ground! There's also a tongue-in-cheek story which thankfully doesn't take itself the least bit seriously. Think 1980's standard over-the-top fare! Definitely not the key focus, though. Recommended for everyone who likes fun.

This game feels completely different from GTA or any other sand box game out there. It focuses more on exploration than story.Combination of parachute and grappling hook constantly amazes. This game is good for those who wants to screw around and wants 100% completion. combat is easier so I highly recommend to start playing it on higher difficulty. Worth every penny for this cost.
Probably the best fun you'll will havesonarctica | May 6, 2013 | See all sonarctica's reviews »
Just Cause 2 is one of the best games I have ever played, they know what they wanted to do with this game and they succeeded doing so. It has countless hours of fun and it is worth every penny you pay for this game. It's often on 75% sale so that's a plus too if you don't feel like spending 20 euros on it even though it's worth it. Only down side is that it doesn't have multiplayer on it but don't worry! Some people are developing multiplayer for it, so make sure you google that.
