Just Cause 2 is an older that reminds the young years of Xbox360 era but it's still fun nevertheless, it's just got a bit dated in the graphics department but apart from that gameplay is still fun and definitely worth checking out if your rig isn't powerful enough to run the third part of this series.
Just cause 2 is such a fun game, that even if you try, you can't be bored while playing with it. In a way, it is the perfect crazy sandbox game. The world map is huge, the graphics are almost life like, and you can make lots of explosions. The grappling hook and the infinite parachute makes travel around the map pretty fun, and fast too. You almost feel like a cuban spidermam, or something like that. The story isn't that great, but the doesn't take it seriously anyway, and you shouldn't either. It gives you the opportunity, to fight ridiculous bond villains, and what more you can ask for?
When I first started playing Just Cause 2 I noticed that the voice acting is really bad. The island that you play on is huge but other then randomly destroying things there isn't much to do on a large portion of the map. There is a shop menu that allows you to buy cars, upgrades, ammo and weapons but for some reason the weapons are extremely expensive and you don't get to keep them as they disappear when you reload your save. Another problem with the shop menu is that it only allows you to buy one item at a time which can get annoying pretty quickly. The story doesn't take itself seriously which is good because of the voice acting issue. There is a grappling hook which allows you to climb buildings or tie things together which is fun but the hooks line does break quite easily. Overall its a pretty fun game but it does get very repetitive.
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.
