This game is set in a place called Panau, sort of like North Korea. The game is very fun when you install mods, or do what you want. If you choose to do the story missions, they are not much fun and are very repetitive. After all the story mode missions are completed, he real fun begins in mercenary mode. Try to get 100% completion of Panau and play around with the grapple hook. The grapple hook is a core mechanic of this game, and it is very, very fun to use, especially with mods like bolo patch and the wingsuit mod. I r8 it 8/8 XD
This is one of those games that when you first play it, the first thing you do makes your feel funny in your belly. IT'S AWESOME! Only people who play this can understand how fun grappling and parachuting through the massive island is. Get ready to parachute around exploding things because that's the main objective of Just Cause 2. The island may feel empty at times, but you can travel pretty quickly so you don't really feel the emptiness. You can also install mods, which is great. And lastly, this is an amazingly optimized game. Trust me, I could run this on a DDR2 RAM potato. I highly recommend Just Cause 2. It will provide you with many many hours of unique fun.
Amazing sandbox that lacks content (less than 10 main missions but ~ 50 side missions: some of them very memorable i.e. Island from Lost) To progress in the main story you have to create chaos to weaken Baby Panao's Regime, which keeps you busy most of the time. One of the biggest strengths of this game beside the vast stunningly beautiful map are the ways of transport. Of course you can just steal any car you like or grab a plane from the next airport or military base but the main character Rico Rodriguez aka Scorpio has a parashoot which he can open / close & and re-open at any time. In combination with the grappling hook that gives you almost endless possibilites to get around and once you get the hang of it has a very unique flow not unlike the "skiing" in Tribes Ascend. Not as "real" and dark as the latest GTA games - not as "Over the Top" as Saints Row Personal playtime 82.5 hrs
Just Cause 2 is probably best known for its constant comparisons to Michael Bay's films. Everything explodes. If you jump off a motorcycle, it will explode no matter what it hits, pretty much all your goals revolve around blowing stuff up, and it has barely any semblance of a coherent plot stringing it together. It's a LOT of fun, though. The grapple + parachute movement system feels like swinging around as Spider-Man in that old Xbox game, just with more rockets and grenades. Oh and there's of course other fun things like crawling around on the top of a fighter jet as it careens out of control toward a village.
This game is very fun to play since you have the ability to destroy so much of the buildings on the map. The story is okay and can be funny at times. I would say this game is a good pick-up when it is on sale for some easy fun !
