Summary: Randomly it shuts down and gives me an error about graphic card, or some other stuff. I tried everything on the forums but nothing works. Sometimes will run for hours with no problems and sometimes it will shut down minutes after I start playing. My PC meets (and exceeds, but not for much, the required specs).
Summary: The story is terrible, but the game play is fantastic. You'll have a blast grappling a plane as it takes off, highjacking it mid-air and soaring around island looking for the perfect place to jump out and opening up a parachute. The gunplay is fairly meh, driving is kinda sloppy, and the island is mostly tress, but you can spend lots of your time finding out how to have fun. I guarantee it everyone has tried landing a plane on the party blimp at some point.
Terrible gameplay , also will become useless in January 2014

Summary: so i bought this game mainly for laughs i mean i expected it to be bad , but the thing that got me was that the servers are going to be permanently shut down in January 2014, which means this game was just about a complete waste, but i gave it three stars due to the fact that it was a cool concept having 256 people in a single game. this game will make a good wall piece now.
Summary: I ordered the game a few days ago and just come to find out Sony verified a few days ago that they will be shutting MAG and Socom servers down on 01/28/14. Its a great game all around but I guess Sony thinks it's okay to shut the servers down when the game is still selling. If you can get if for under $5.00 with shipping it might be worth the playing till they shut the servers down.
Summary: I bought this really for my 12 year old son and not for myself. This was my sons first real FPS to play. He absolutely loves the game. It isn't too difficult so he keeps asking me for help. (Rule of thumb in the house, if you need help playing a video game, you are too young to play it.) It's essentially a giant sandbox for him to play in and do whatever he wants. He spends the majority of his time playing GTA style. Playability: Easy enough to play.
Repetitive missions and events get boring after a while

Summary: The Good: Looks amazing, grappling hook+parachute=superb fun, high octane story missions, lots of weapons and vehicles, huge open world The Bad: Getting around is boring and a pain, needs Xbox controller to play well, wonky physics, boring side missions, repetitive after about 4 hours, some elements just work against you, crappy story Sandbox games can be really fun because it lets you do what you want to do with the shovel and bucket the developers give you.
Summary: Just Cause 2 Pros * Amazing open world gameplay. * The game looks beautiful. * Very fun to play. * Plenty of side missions to complete. And when I say plenty I do mean PLENTY. Cons * While the number side missions is plenty, it is VERY repetitive. You'll find yourself doing the same things over and over again. * Very short and weak story.
Summary: MAG requires communication and teamwork from a group of 8 people. If you are not going to be playing with a group of 7 friends, be ready to get placed into a random squad with very little teamwork and communication. If you have a group of friends or are a member of a MAG clan, this game is OUTSTANDING in every way. Huge maps, exciting gameplay, great leveling opportunities. On the other hand, if you do not have friends playing MAG falls seriously short.
