I was very excited when I had first obtained this title, waiting several months for it, my expectations were high. When I got it however, it was a bit of a let down.
The biggest flaw in this game is most likely the combat system. With no cover fire and the fact that you are easily overwhelmed if you're not in one of the more heavily armored vehicles. This, and the horrible voice acting and story was the only flaw I saw, however.
The gameplay also becomes very repetitive very shortly, this is one of the biggest turn offs of this game. It turns into doing missions and spending countless hours trying to get "chaos" to advance to the next mission. This is, unless you're trying to just roam the world for fun.
In terms of graphics, they are superb, not taking into considering the massive world to explore, which make the graphics all the more impressive. The world looks very crisp and clear and is by far one of the best achievements this game, or any game, could achieve.
Over all, 6/10. Good graphics and some fun exploration is all I can say this game has. Definitely a rent, possibly a buy.
The free roam itself is very fun. Having said that, The controlls are terriable the, combat is repetitive, and the story is weak. I enjoyed the graphics how stuff looked but thats all eye candy.. I like gameplay somthing this game dosent have.
I have been a fan of Square Enix for many many years all the way back to Final Fantasy on Nintendo, and to see a game like this come from them is quite shocking, for they are mainly known for RPG games. Just Cause 2, in my opinion is a great game, granted i never played the original Just Cause, but the sheer scope of the Island of Panau is nothing short of breathtaking. Mix together some aspects of Gran Theft Auto, along with a lil grappling hook action, which reminds me of Bionic commando, but lets e honest the grappling hook in this game is such a perfect fit. The Island is huge and so detailed i was in awe when first playing this game. When you see a Mountain in the background it most certainly is a lifesized scaled Mountian. So grab your favorite parachute and grappling hook and free fall into the world of Just Cause 2, and cause as much Chaos as u can, it does get a lil tiresome having to traverse the huge map at times, but there are ways around it to speed things up. Cheers to Square Enix for making a great Product in a sea of bad ones. I rarely give good reviews for games because, lets be honest there are literally hundreds of games that shouldnt even be given a spot on the shelf, finding a fun game that works right is difficult in todays console gaming. So enjoy this one folks
