Summary: It's a nice large scale arena with a very dynamic landscape. I kind of wish the environments were destructible like in Red Faction. Grab a minigun and there is nothing that can freaking stop you. Latching on to vehicles and attaching people to things and each other is fun. Downside - the missions get a tad repetitive in theme, as far as the way to complete the game to 100%... not gta repetitive... but objective repetitive... its a good buy for a low price.
Summary: In "Just Cause 2" your character works for several different clans who wish to overthrow a corrupt man with alot of power. It is a free world game that is very big!! You can walk, drive cars, trucks, motorcycles, busses, fly airplanes, pilot helicopters, and even travel by boats! The game flows like this.. You need to gain "Chaos" points by completing side missions and destroying enemy bases.
Summary: This game is fun, if not rudimentary. The enemies are pretty stupid and the missions get repetitive. However, there is a large open world and the grappling hook gimmick is cool. If you want a new game to explore for cheap, this is a good buy for $20. But not for more than that price.
Summary: In this game, you can literally do anything and everything. The main story missions get a little repetitive, but there are so many side tasks available to do, and just straight up exploring and messing around, that you can have a lot of fun in between missions.
If you like ANY of the GTA Games then you'll LOVE this game!

Summary: I love games like this that you can go and do whatever you would like. It makes you feel like the designers cared enough about the game to have 400 square miles of exploreable area. I hate games that are great but you can beat it in under 10 hours of game play. I have logged about 27 hours of game play since I purchased it and I am completing the game at about 1% per hour (I'm about 27% complete). A lot of the same aspects of GTA..
Summary: I recently picked up a copy of this and for the price, it is an amazing game. no other game in this price range will give you the experience that Just Cause 2 does. It has an immense map (almost 30 minutes to get across with grappling) and the graphics the best I have ever seen. It includes tons of different weapons and over 100 different vehicles including cars, airplanes, boats and helicopters. The ability to pick a faction and help them with their goals is great.
Excerpt: The island environment is lush and sprawling. The story and voice acting leaves something to be desired, but the fact that you can base jump and jump out of helicopters is just downright awesome. Definitely a fun game.
Summary: Okay, so this is the LARGEST sandbox map I have ever seen...EVER!!! Its so vast I think It would take easily 100 hours or more to complete everything. The story is lame and the voice acting is laughable but i think the developers wanted it that way. It probably would have not been as fun if the story was engaging because you would be focused on that instead of the world which is the REAL star of the show. Now the map as I have said is huge.
