Just Cause 2

True achievements
13 April 2013
  • Conclusion: Gunplay felt nice as well with an auto targeting system sometimes getting in the way. The mere scope of the game makes up for any flaws this game may have. There is lots to do on the islands. Over three hundred locations and objectives in each one means if your going for a 100% it'll take quite sometime. Bottom line, Just Cause 2 is total unscripted fun and with beauty to match.

Just Cause 2

  • Excerpt: You’re Rico Rodriguez, A.K.A. "Scorpio" - who was sent to the nation of Panau to hunt down a former coworker who went rogue with millions in cash and some top-secret info to boot. The only way to get to him is by being a terrorist, and aiding criminal organizations around the island in their struggle to get the upper hand against Baby Panay, the ruthless dictator of Panau. To do this, you need weapons – guns, explosives, vehicles, and a grappling hook.

GTA-like game about killing, sex, drugs, and profanity.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that Just Cause 2 is like Grand Theft Auto on an island. This open "sandbox" game has you perform many missions, which includes killing people and hijacking cars, therefore it's not an appropriate game for players under 17 years of age. Much of the action revolves around combat and stunts. Players can use many kinds of weapons to dispose of enemies.

Game Over Online

  • Excerpt: 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, essentially, becomes your playground. Grand Theft Auto wouldn’t fall into this category because the character you control is an average Joe with no real abilities, but games like Prototype, Batman: Arkham Asylum (to a degree),...

  • Excerpt: The setting for Just Cause 2, the fictitious island nation of Panau, is pretty impressive to say the least. It covers 1,000 square kilometers (about 360 square miles), and includes everything from high alpine peaks to jungle river valleys to desert plains. There's a capital city complete with towering high rises and an international airport, military bases that include a space center, and countless towns and backwater villages.

Just Cause 2 (Xbox 360)

  • Excerpt: Have you ever gone to see a summer blockbuster? Full of action and special effects, but about as deep as a kiddie pool; they’re exciting and fun, but can leave you wanting more. Just Cause 2 feels exactly like this. With a completely open world and intense action, this title not only feels and looks like an action movie, it plays like one.
  • Pros: Insane action; efficient controls; massive world
  • Cons: Weak story

Just Cause 2 (Xbox 360) Review

  • Summary: Open world sandbox games are a dime a dozen now days, but few can match the enjoyment that Just Cause 2 provides. You’ll spend hours having a great time messing around in the environment. There are plenty of weapons, plenty of vehicles, and plenty of situations to create chaos. The grappling hook is one of the best mechanics in an open world game in a long time. Add in infinite parachutes and you’ll spend a lot of time approaching various situations from multiple angles.

Review: Just Cause 2 (Microsoft Xbox 360)

Diehard GameFAN
23 August 2010
  • Summary: Everything about this game (except the voice work) is enjoyable in some way or another, and I am hopeful that the game gets the recognition it deserves. A true sandbox game that lacks only the complete and total destruction of environments offered in other titles. If you’ve ever looked at a plane taking off and wondered what would happen if I lassoed that to a tree, this is your game.

Just Cause 2 Review

VideoGamer.com
14 August 2010
  • Excerpt: Sometimes the simplest things can bring about the most fun. Just Cause 2, while giving you a lengthy campaign of missions to play through, excels primarily because it gives you the tools required to have a good time - a rather explosive one at that. Avalanche's open-world sequel is silly, doesn't handle gunplay all that well and features the worst voice acting I've heard in a very long time, but once you learn the ins and outs of Just Cause 2's grappling hook, it's hard...
