Just Cause 2 Review

 

Holy crap this is a huge game and...it's also pretty good.

While GTA 3 started the sandbox genre, Just Cause 2 took that idea and raised it to a ridiculous level. Not only can it take 20+ hours to beat the game; there are also hours upon hours of extra fun to be had on the side. The only downside to JC2 is...

Superhero Sandbox. Confused? Let me elaborate on what that is: a superhero sandbox game is a game that tosses you into the boots of a very talented/powerful/well-equipped character before throwing you into a beautifully realized open world that,...

As an open world game with completely unrealistic physics and a humorous mismatch of characters (there must be at least a dozen different accents, sometimes all are hilariously congregated into a single city), this game is second to none. It looks...

Just Cause 2 PS3 Review

 

Just Cause 2 places players once again in control of CIA operative Rico Rodriguez and will have the opportunity to create plenty of havoc as they blast their way through a explosive and not entirely serious game.

Just Cause 2

 

Just Cause was a game that was plagued by awkwardness. It was released during the tail end of the last console generation and received a port to Xbox 360 strictly out of necessity as most gamers were migrating to Microsoft's new console. The game...

Just Cause 2 does what so many other open-world games try to and usually end up missing the target. Its huge world, insane gameplay, and amazing visuals will keep you blowing stuff up into the wee hours of the morning and not even blinking an eye.

Just Cause 2 puts players in control of Rico Rodriguez, who works for the US agency called "The Agency", once again. He is sent to the island of Panau to locate his old mentor, Tom Sheldon, who is suspected to have gone rogue. Shortly after arriving...

Just Cause 2 improves in every way from the first game. An enhanced grappling hook with limitless uses brings players on of the greatest video game mechanics to date. Not to mention that there are four hundred square miles to use all of Rico's tools...

A Sandbox Full of Awesome

Expert review by:

Just Cause 2

 

I love a good sandbox game. From the engrossing tales and urban mayhem of Grand Theft Auto to the wildly destructible Red Faction: Guerrilla, their ability to provide unrestricted anarchy has kept us thoroughly entertained over the past decade

Just Cause 2 succeeds in its primary aim of dropping you into a ludicrously over the top action movie. The missions may not be very involving, but there's no denying that with the right tools there is a lot of destructive, albeit mindless, fun to be...

The original Just Cause was a fun open world game, but numerous gameplay issues and a few bugs prevented players from really engaging them selves in it. For Just Cause 2, the world has been expanded, the gameplay more streamlined, and the fun has...

Huge open world ; Lots of missions and gameplay ; Fun and exciting gameplay

Mission structure ; Save system

Just Cause 2 is a coloring book for people who never cared to keep their art inside the lines. Pleasure is derived not from carefully staying within the edges, but ripping all the pages out and then replacing them with whatever twisted idea first comes...

Hits & Hiccups

Rewarding way to story progression

Controls fail in tense situations

The story is simple and straightforward enough not to get in the way. You are Rico Rodriguez, work for The Agency and your mentor has gone rogue. You are so Latin that your blood boils out every time that you get shot and you meet stereotypes that only...
