Your world…Your rules! In Just Cause, you are a field operative and specialist in regime change backed by a top US secret government agency who will overthrow the corrupt government of San Esperito. The rogue South American state is suspected of stockpiling Weapons of Mass Destruction, and it’s your mission to negate the threat this poses to world peace. It could be to your advantage that the tropical paradise is about to implode as various factions vie for power – it just needs a gentle nudge in the right direction.
Just Cause offers the freedom to tackle your assignments however you want: playing the island’s factions against one another, inciting a rebellion among the masses and building alliances with rebel forces and drug cartels. The action takes place in an incredibly detailed game world which consists of over 250,000 acres of mountains, jungles, beaches, cities and villages. The island can be explored by land, sea and air, as you will have at your disposal one of the most varied and exciting array of vehicles ever seen in a video game.
Freeform game-play – approach missions in any way you like, or break off from the fight and enjoy exploring the islands.

Just Cause is mental. If you want to jump off a pier on a motorbike and crash into the sea where you swim across to a jungle you can do just that. The gameplay, although dated, is very fun and involving. However the graphics are very dated and Just Cause 2 would provide a smoother and more graphically pleasing game. The sounds involved in the game are adequate and provide a decent soundtrack. If you have the extra money you should get the sequel (Just Cause 2) but if you want to try out the series and would like to spend a bit less go grab the first game, you wont be disappointed
Not better than GTA, but it's closeJimmysil | Sept. 17, 2013 | See all Jimmysil's reviews »
People often compare this game with games from GTA series. Yes it is another open world game, where you can drive around the whole map and do what you wanna do. The GTAs feel more real, and Just Cause is more funny.
One thing that really took my breath away, by the time this game was released, was the look of the game world. It is just beautiful. The sky, sea, and the islands, it all look great. You feel like you are on vacation. But it's even better, because here you can fly jets, drive quadbikes, and use your parachute ten times in a row.
Fun game with lots to exploreBlockAgent | Sept. 9, 2013 | See all BlockAgent's reviews »
So much to explore! This game has a story that is nice in length and does a good job of not being repetitive. Think of it as Grand Theft Auto set in an third world latin country and you will have a sense of it. Plenty of adventure to be had here.
Just good old game.yuppy | Aug. 25, 2013 | See all yuppy's reviews »
Game has lot of advantages or disadvantages. You can play in big open world, watch amazing graphics of nature, but if you want used cars better change game on one of NFS series. What about sounds? Is there music?? Yes in intro... Story is better than good but this game could be well prepared. Better is version on xbox. If you have time you can play it, if not try other game or sequel of JC.

All of you have probably watched Schwarzenegger movie True Lies, and this game is just that. A bunch of nonsensical and paradoxical action scenes, like in movies of Jon Woo ... and the final result ... very good fun.
This is a game you should definitely try it if you have a free afternoon.
