Game description


"In injecting regime change with such sheer raggedy-ass size and balls-out bluster, the developers have joined Rico Rodriguez in pulling off something of a coup" - CheatCC.com

"_loads of fun once you start getting creative with the game's stunt system and fiddling with some of the more hilarious options. _" - AtomicGamer.com

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.

Key Features:

  • Freeform game-play – approach missions in any way you like, or break off from the fight and enjoy exploring the islands.

  • Over 250K acres of land to explore, the largest environment ever seen in a game!

  • Over-the-top Stunts – jump from vehicle-to-vehicle, parasail, skydive and base-jump…

  • Massive selection of vehicles – over 100 of the most varied, exciting array of land, sea and air vehicles ever seen in a video game.

  • Avalanche Engine ™ – procedurally generated landscape delivers a huge, beautiful, detailed world while eliminating loading times.

  • Wealth of missions – story missions, side-missions, bonus missions and many more; ensuring plenty of action spread throughout the islands.

  • Support team – Sheldon and Kane, two CIA field operatives, will provide you with reconnaissance info, extraction and vehicle drops.

  • Fly. The best way to explore San Esperito is by air!

The beginning of something legendary


Just cause, the game that came unexpectedly and I fall in love with thousands of people (including me) the moment it came out it was an epic idea, different then the game literally is based on that you are an agent and you follow a pair of missions but it exciting is the freedom that gives you the game, that is what they try to look for the games of the last times, that the player more and more feel free with the environment but not make a giant map with nothing of life as I have seen in many games but this one complies with the functionality that everything feels alive and not solitary, I recommend it to all kinds of people who have not tried this genre, it's a good way to start trying it.

The underdog


Just Cause is the underdog game of the franchise that later became a success and kind of a meme in the video game industry with Just Cause 2 and 3. The first was an introduction to Rico, his abilities, his tools and what he can do in this crazy world ruled by bad people. The story it's almost none existence and the main focus of the game is purely destruction, chaos and goofing around with your guns and vehicles. The controls and movements are bad, and if you can't stand bad controls and aiming, just pass on this one and go directly to Just Cause 2.

Don't waste your time! You must play this great game now!


Just Cause is a pure action game with a mix of all the famous styles. I can put this game in the one of the most fascinating computer games lists. Let me ask a question from you: Did you like Far Cry? How do you think of Grand Theft Auto? If you combine these two games, what is produced? Well, you guessed right. Just Cause is produced! Let me explain this statement: That's why it's similar to Far Cry, because both of them are run in hot areas, and the graphics of the two games are similar. That's why it resembles the GTA that you have the ability to board a variety of planes, cars, engines, boat types, helicopters! ... And more. If you have never played this game, buy it quickly!

Skip it!


Just Cause is so frustrating I don't even know where to start from. This game may look good after some hours of gameplay, but once you realize how empty this open world is and how difficult the game gets you will start regreting playing it. There are lots of bugs, lots of glitches and lots of reasons why you should avoid this title. Story missions are acceptable but way too difficult -specially the last one-. Be ready to face waves of infinite helicopters auto locking on their missiles on you and be ready to walk a lot since every vehicle you get will be destroyed almost instantly. Rico can stand tons of bullets, but the vehicles don't, so, you are better off walking. The iconic grapling hook doesn't work either and adds up even more frustration to the whole game. It is as is everything were made to make Just Cause 2 the best sequel ever made. Skip this game and you will save tons of hours of suffering. This game is almost broken.

Game that started amazing series.


The game that started this amazing series, can be described as tropical GTA covered in wacky sauce. So if you are looking for something that tends to be realistic you will be disappointed as there are so many strange things based on physics to do in this title it's almost crazy. Be warned though it's a fairly old game so there will be some strange glitches on the screen from time to time as all the explosion and interaction are calculated in real time and sometimes the engine goes crazy. Still, it's worth checking it out.
