Summary: I'm playing this game, hanging from the tail of an airplane, and I jump to a helicopter and kick out the pilot. My son asks, "Why did you do that?" And my answer is, "Just cause." The whole game plays in this manner- do whatever you want- steal a car, steal another car, drive it off a cliff, swim to a boat, parachute off the back of it, etc etc. The fun factor in this game is a solid 4/5. It reminds me of the GTA series, only the terrain you cover is much larger.
Like a vacation...everything looks great, but I'm still bored.

Summary: From a technical perspective, the 360 version of Just Cause stands out for a few reasons. The game engine is very capable and manages to render the huge areas on the fly with little loading times. Everything has a nice sheen and overall, the game looks awfully good. While the in-game models look fairly average, the island of San Espirito looks alive, bustling with activity. The sheer depth of it over the horizon is what grabs you from the initial parachute drop.
Summary: I picked up Just Cause when it was on sale about two weeks ago, and while I can't say I'm disappointed, I'd be pretty upset if I paid anything more for it. I was hoping for something along the lines of Hitman with a Saint's Row twist, only to wind up with the most "ho-hum" game I've ever played on the Xbox 360.
Summary: Just Cause is a strange game. It's rated "M": not intended for anyone under 17. But the only people who will really enjoy this game have to have the IQ of a 5th grader. The physics in this game are just plain silly. You can jump your character from a 100 mph truck to a vehicle passing the opposite direction no problem. You can jump out of an airplane, land on another airplane and hold on. You can grapple onto a helicopter, grab its tailfin, and jump into the cockpit.

Summary: Story - 6/10 This game has a pretty good storyline in which you play as an agent trying to force through a revolution amongst some quite tropical islands in the immensely-sized map that you play on. There aren't a lot of missions in the main storyline, which is dissapointing. A lot of the gameplay comes from side missions, rather like the Grand Theft Auto series. However they are all of the same type, in which you overthrow local governments.
Pros: Graphics, Music, Extensive map
Cons: Feel of the game, Short storyline, Sound effects, Replay value
Excerpt: "...chance to play the first Just Cause in till after I had sunk a good 20 hours into the second game in the series, so when I started playing this one I was quite disappointed with the graphics, but I then found out that this game is in fact a port from the PS2 with slightly improved graphics, and it came out about the same time as the Xbox 360, so they hadn't been working on the game with "next-gen" graphics in mind. The Gameplay This game is one ...
Pros: Free roam . Do as you please . Missions are simple .
Cons: Silly storyline . Voice acting is too funny to be good .
Summary: One of the first games that was available on the Xbox 360, Just Cause is highly impressive on paper. Freeform sandbox gameplay? Check. A huge island to roam around, bigger than basically anything seen before on a game? Check. Beautiful next gen graphics with the mandatory pretty vegitation? Check. Superb levels of interaction, allowing you to comandeer any vehicle you see in the game? Check. And it looks good too.
Pros: Ace graphics, great to watch, smooth action
Cons: I thought I'd done this mission before? Ten times?
