Summary: "Just Cause," developed by Avalanche Studios and published by Eidos, is big. It's so big, that it ends up putting pretty much most other open-world games out there to shame. There are no boundaries in this world.
Summary: I was really impressed with Just Cause. It's not the best game out there, far from it. This sandbox is one of the most enjoyable in recent memory to just play around in. I was constantly wanting to try new things and see how crazy things could get.
Summary: I was really impressed with Just Cause. It's not the best game out there - far from it. The story is basic and boring, as well as a lot of the side missions (Strongholds etc. are basically the same repetitive assaults over and over and over).
Summary: This game although not being the best of this type of item out there is well worth the price I paid for it. It was a great deal at less the half the price of the better ones that are out there and really not that much different.
Total replay value...worth the inexpensive price for sure!

Summary: The map is huge, the stunts are rediculously impossible and make the game so fun. The graphics don't awe and even the colors seem overdone and corny. If you want a realistic, strategy sneak around and flip switches to solve the puzzles and then finally after dodging, ducking and hiding kill the 3...
Summary: If you are looking for one of those super-realistic games where everything is completely plausable, find another game. Just Cause is essentially an action movie translated into a game, and it turns out very well. If you pictured James Bond being played by Antonio Banderas with M played by Craig T.
Summary: I knew I liked this game after jumping out of a helicopter at about 15 thousand feet, freefalling AFTER the helicopter (with clouds rushing by), grabbing onto the falling helicopter in freefall, and getting back and flying off again with about 1500 or so odd feet to spare.
Conclusion: I enjoyed this game immensely. Enormous map coupled with a myriad of weapons and vehicles, it's great fun. However I did get bored of the side missions fairly quickly as they are quite samey, and the physics are quite crazy.
