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

31 August 2012
  • 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.

Common Sense Media
2 September 2010
  • 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.

Just Cause 2 Review

GameSpot
25 August 2010
  • Excerpt: Just Cause 2 is ridiculous in the best possible way. In the space of a few moments, you can grapple to a hovering helicopter; beat up the pilot and hijack the chopper; blow up a cluster of fuel tanks; put the chopper on a collision course with an enormous antenna; jump out of the helicopter at the last moment; and watch the resulting explosion as you parachute down to the saddle of a moving motorcycle below.
  • Pros: Enormous, varied island to explore with lots of things to do, More than 100 vehicles to drive and pilot, You pull off all sorts of crazy stunts, Stuff blows up in lots of awesome ways, Using the grapple hook and parachute to move around is great fun
  • Cons: Broken targeting can make gunplay a pain, Some of the missions are more frustrating than fun, Various glitches and other scattered annoyances

Just Cause 2 (Xbox 360)

21 August 2010
  • 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 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...

Test Just Cause 2

Generation NT
13 August 2010
  • Conclusion: Les mécanismes de jeu sont classiques et inspirés des actuels jeux de tir à la troisième personne. On regrette toutefois une approximation des mécanismes de visée privilégiant grandement l’imprécision. On retrouve cette imprécision dans le pilotage des véhicules maritimes et terrestres nécessitant un certain temps d’adaptation ou encore le GPS.
  • Pros: Le grappin, La durée de vie, Les environnements, La taille de l'archipel, La diversité des véhicules
  • Cons: Pas de co-op, Missions répétitives, Les doublages sur-joués, Scénario quasi-inexistant, Bruitages simplets et peu expressifs, Imprécision des combats et du pilotage

  • Excerpt: Here at SquareGo we love games with strong narratives, unique storytelling techniques and groundbreaking mechanics. That said, sometimes we just love some mighty big explosions too. Just Cause 2 is all about having fun, it’s a sandbox of chaos where your main objectives is to bring down a tropical island’s dictatorial government by incinerating as much infrastructure as possible, it’s a constant derby of destruction and as open world games go it’s GTA on rainbow...

Overlord 2

Square-Go
5 August 2010
  • Excerpt: Charm, it’s a difficult concept, what can be hilarious, entertaining and absorbing to one person, can be irritating and off-putting to others. Overlord 2 is a game that desperately wants to be charming, the only problem is that it relies so heavily on it’s style and humour that it has the potential to alienate certain people before they even get far into the game.
