Pretty much a blow-it-up open-world action game with the glorious grappling hook. Beyond this however, the game's pretty shallow; lots of repetitive side-missions, actions, vehicles and the world just doesn't feel lively. You'll want to dip into those as a side-dish with the main story as the main course rather than as two full meals to avoid the repetition. Once your done the story, there's always the multiplayer to add a little extra with your friends to share the ridiculousness of the game, but you won't be touching again once it's been exhausted.
Just Cause 2 is amazing sandbox with a lot of action! Nice graphics and great design makes Panau Island looks really great. Open, picturesque world is main pros of this game. We have huge area for exploration - we can feel enormous possibilities and tremendous freedom. We can do almost everything we want - climb on every building, enter every military base or airport and steal a plane. Main character is doing unbelievable and impressive evolutions just in Hollywood style. Entire game looks like production made by Hollywood - many explosions, destruction and freedom. That was great. I didn't liked some things in this game - storyline is really poor and checkpoint system during missions is bad designed.
Just Cause 2 is an incredible, open world game, GTA alike (if you want an example), with a lot of things to do around. I really like the destructive environment it has to a lot of the stuff you're gonna shoot. So! Just Cause 2 is a big improvement, because the first Just Cause game even though it's not bad, it's not the same as the second one. It has a better open world, more explosive moments, great grappling hook time (oh yeah, you're gonna love it), a lot of shooting, plenty of gameplay time (more than 15 hours), a bunch of guns to choose, brilliant graphics, and a good story. It's one of those times that you want such a game like this one, and even though there are a lot of games except the GTA series, this one is a great, satisfying game experience you're gonna have. Elder Scrolls: Skyrim, Mafia III, Total Overdose, all are open world games with it's own story and world and all of them are terrific. Just Cause 2 is easily included in a list of one of the best Open World games. You won't get bored of it. Or maybe not so easy. The missions are exciting, the mechanics of the game or of the vehicles are quite good, roam around the big map it has with complete freedom, shoot things, anything. Favourite part of each moment of the game (yup, I'm gonna say it again) is how you can shoot and make BOOM the things around. And there you have it... one great game of it's category. It's by far the best in the series (in my opinion). My rating for Just Cause 2: 91/100
Just Cause 2 is an awesome sandbox action game. It's like GTA but the world is larger and there is more destruction. I loved: - the gameplay (especially the grapling hook mechanics). - the physics. You will hardly get bored in this game with so much destruction that you can cause. - the multiplayer. It is ridiculous and funny. What I didn't like so much: - the story. I think it's boring and cliched. - the music. The soundtrack of Just Cause 1 is way better
Just Cause 2 on it's own provides a challenging storyline but it helps give you an open world adventure filled with plenty to do, However, when you enter the multiplayer world, everything expands. The people attack you, ally with you, fire rockets at you, you name it. It's an exciting game for any open world gamer.
