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.

Fly. The best way to explore San Esperito is by air!
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.
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.
Square Enix created & started a fantastic series, that went it's very own way. It's not GTA, or Mafia, or Saints Row. It's something different, yet similar to the titled games. Just Cause blended open world with PLENTY of destruction. THAT'S, something we don't see regularly. Then, Just Cause later added the grappling hook. Still something we don't see regularly. Anyways, Just Cause is a big adventure you'll go through. Huge open world, destruction, lots of guns, vehicles, planes, it's all there. It has some small bugs here and there, but doesn't necessarily mess up the game. I don't believe it's the best in the series (I'd vouch for Just Cause 2), but it's a good start to the series and enjoyable. It's not bad, in any way. Very fun gameplay, not really repetitive missions, freedom of doing anything you want, and you get along with the protagonist of the game, easily. Interesting story, okay mechanics (let's not forget it was released in 2006. Not that it matters much, but I'm just saying). Overall, it's quite an adventure you'll experience. Just Cause didn't dissapoint, and gets EVEN better with Just Cause 2, which is way better in many things. If you liked the mayhem it has, just wait until you play Just Cause 2. You'll love it.
This series began with this amazing game. It provides reasonable graphics that to this day seem to work just fine without being absolutely unbearable. Overall, the game hosts a well developed plot and continues on throughout the other games in the series.
Just Cause 2 is one of my favourite open world games, and of course it couldn't exist without this title, which is a little rough around the edges, but overall a fun, enjoyable game. Unlike most GTA like games, where you play a criminal, or a cop, or a spiderman wannabe, here you are a secret agent, whose job is to wreak havoc, and just generally make things difficult for the country's leadership. I guess, you kinda do that in every other game, so this one is just more honest about it, but unlike GTA's nice slow driving missions, here the action is non-stop, and you really feel like waging a war,as you fight the corrupt armies of not-CUBA. and, and the grappling hook...it's not as fun as the one in the second game but damn...every game should have at least this version, it's so useful!
