Just Cause 2

 

There are TONS of sandbox games out there, and most of them focus on a particular aspect and improve it in some small way, and others are GTA. GTA

Just Cause 2 sets a new standard in the sandbox genre, and will be difficult to top due to its incredible graphics, expansive world, and extremely fun gameplay. It encourages exploration and focuses on destruction and chaos above all else. The game...

Just Cause 2 Review

 

Many sandbox games promise to deliver no limits gameplay, but often place restrictions on where exactly you can go in a game thanks to hills that are just too steep to climb or cleverly placed obstacles. As a result the promise of "no limits" gameplay...

Huge world to explore ; Grappling hook allows for great experimentation ; Huge range of vehicles to play with

Missions repetitive ; A.I can be hit or miss

Just Cause 2 gives you plenty of cause to create chaos, destruction and fun in sandbox gaming at its best. The story, scripting and characters lack a punch, but the game itself is an absolute blast...

Absolute freedom - Sandbox gaming at its best; Looks incredible; Amazing, solid game-engine; Heaps to explore and play with - many, many hidden goodies

Story, characters, scripting and voice-acting is sub-par; Missions and mission-structure is severely lacking; AI for enemies and NPCs is a bit of a joke

Just Cause 2

 

Just Cause 2 is a game that begs to be messed around with, for you to discover new ways to use the tools at your disposal and to take it all in the light-hearted way the developer intended.

There's always a normal way to climb up to the top floor of a building, but why bother when you can just grapple up the side? Why shoot an enemy when you could pull him from his perch with a click of a button using your grappling hook? Is a pursuing...

A sequel four years in the making. Will it prove to be worth the wait?

Superbly designed island ; Action packed ; Massive improvement over it's predecessor

Poor voice acting ; Numerous graphical glitches ; Pretty shallow story

"Just Cause 2" is such a massive improvement over it's preecessor in almost every aspect particularly the action and graphics although it appears that this is where the production budget has been spent rather than on the sound.

"why?"

 

just cause 2 is great, so much fun and one of the largest open maps i have ever seen in a sanbox game. Has some pretty nice graphics for a sandbox game and has plenty of vehicles and weapons to cause havok all around the massive playable island of...

"An action rush from beginning to end"

 

I love this game. Where else can you jump out of a helicopter, free fall hundreds of metres onto the bonnet of an enemy jeep, punch out the driver and then leap off again while the now driverless jeep takes out a petrol station in a huge fireball? And...

"80's Action Movie: The Game"

 

And not in a bad way. In the best, most fun and polished sort of way. I haven't encountered a game that has felt this polished and just pure unrestrained fun in a long time. The game is fun and challenging without tripping over itself to make it...

Consumer review by:

"Brilliant massive game with endless possibilities."

 

I found this game to be thoroughly enjoyable. The player is thrown into destructive missions right from the start, and blowing up everything with a variety of weapons is immensely satisfying. The missions are well paced and exciting, and are always...

"Just Cause 2"

 

Just like the original...only better in every way! once you have mastered the grappling hook, nothing stands in your way. Nothing beats free fall diving 1,000's of meters , only to grapple a soldier off the edge of a cliff, then parachuting to safety!...
