Just Cause 2 is a sandbox-style action video game. Its gameplay is similar to that of its predecessor, the player is free to roam the game's open world at will, not having to focus on the game's storyline all the time.
The first just cause was amazing, but this is just... absolutely perfect. Sure it has a few glitches (and they are very minor), but this is one of my favorite games ever! Once you've finished the game, you have seen only 30% of what the island of Panau has to offer. The game is amazing, but the mods make it MUCH better!
Very enjoyable game from the start.
I initially played the demo but after awhile it felt like that was most of the game. Then playing the full game, it was fun to do half the missions. It later appears to be rather simple as most missions are straightforward and more A to B objectives.
Upgrading everything and trying to clear all locations afterwards does add quite some life to it, though there is not too much do after finishing.
Marvelous game. An incredibly large world to begin with that can be expanded on. The game has virtually no limits. From the second I was finished the tutorial mission, I was able to just grab a chopper and fly wherever I wanted, see whatever I wanted, and explode whoever I wanted. I also really enjoyed playing this because it was a comfortable gaming experience. The game is hardly violent at all, even though you're given the free-roam option of obliterating anyone who gets in your path, no gore combined with silly voiceovers made anchoring people to jet planes and crashing the planes in to fishing trawlers a little more enjoyable.
A wonderful soundtrack composed of original music and ambient themes helps keep the feel of being on a tropical tourist haven floating in the player's head. Graphics are excelling. Vivid jungle and unique urban environments, combined with breathtaking action-styled explosions and object destructibility make it a treat for the senses.
While the missions and some key environments tend to get repetitive, they're certainly rewarding. The option to walk (or fly) in to any military installment with nothing but a pistol, and drive out on a fully loaded APC with more riches than the people of Panau City combined gives players the ability to set objectives for themselves instead of answering to some gang leader or local tribe.
Excellent for those looking for a fast-paced free roam shooter.
