I didn't finish this game because I've come to a point where I just don't feel the need to slog through a sub par experience just for a sense of completion.
Gameplay mechanics are decent, I didn't encounter anything overtly awful but nothing from the driving to the melee combat felt right.
Characters were cookie cutter cliches ranging from reluctant anti-hero to evil soldier (apparently you cant use the word "natzee" in these reviews) drone with very little gray area in between. Oh and the option to pay extra for nudity is just absurd.
Any expectations I'd had for this game were quickly extinguished... mediocre all around.
I'm going to keep this brief. Just cause 2 is a fun sandbox game but there were a few gripes I had. One is that the level is way too big to where it felt like a commute to get from one end to another. Also after about 5 hours in I started to get the clone brush feeling when I took down my 3rd stronghold.
Just cause 2 is by no means bad and worth a rent but try before you buy. Thanks gamefly.
