I have had it for about a day and a half so far and it's sucked up 11 hours of my valuable time. In that time, I was able to complete about 4% of the game. This game takes.... FOREVER!! However, that is truly the beauty of it. This game has a seemingly unlimited number of things to do. It's so much fun to do simple things, such as driving every vehicle, 100% completing different settlements, and finding that extra cash stash or weapon part.
I love this game, and although it's not perfect and I have some things I am picky about (Not being able to carry around health packs, dumb checkpoint system, no experience gained for killing enemies) This game is really worth it for $15-$20 here on Amazon! This is one FUN game, and this is coming from someone who typically doesn't even enjoy shooting games that much. This is one replayable game!
This is an awesome open-world third-person shooter with MONTHS of play value!!!
Your character is some kind of South American operative at large in a LARGE island country ruled by evil dictators. Or something like that -- I'm more interested in the missions and random mayhem than the back story!
The more mayhem you create -- CHAOS! -- by blowing up government installations, the more missions you are awarded by various revolutionary groups scattered around the country.
The controls are spot-on, you have access to lots of weaponry and vehicles -- include choppers and fighter jets -- and the graphics are excellent. And did I say the country is HUGE? Well, maybe not as big as the US of A, but it's big enough to encompass a variety of terrain from snow-capped mountains to beaches to lush jungles.
At a price of under $20, the purchase of this game is an absolute no-brainer and IMO one of the best values in gaming. And I haven't even tried the online multiplayer.
Highly recommended for fans of blast-'em-up shooting action!
UPDATE: I have put in more than 80 hours playing this game so far, and there still is a ton more to discover -- and blow up! In fact, I saw a message stating that I had only discovered about half the locations available on the island. That means I can expect more than 160 hours of single-player playtime in this game, and it's all killer, no filler!
IMO this is one of the most fun open-world third-person shooters I have ever played, the lack of funny radio stations in the vehicles notwithstanding. If you like shooters, you REALLY need to play Just Cause 2!!! And NO, I don't work for any of the developers responsible for the game...
UPDATE NUMBER TWO: I just have to emphasize my enthusiasm for this game again. I have played a ton of video games since the days of ColecoVision (!), and I don't know when I have ever spent so many enjoyable hours playing a single game. I have now put in well over 100 hours of game time here, and the end is nowhere in sight! The ONLY downside is I know I am going to experience MAJOR withdrawal symptoms when I do finally beat Just Cause 2. Fortunately I have also heard whisperings that Just Cause 3 will be coming in 2015, and I for one will be elbowing others out of the way to pick up a copy. Did I say this game rocks? Yes, I did, up, down, over, and under, inside and out. Scorpio! Scorpio! Pick up a copy, and you'll see what I'm getting so excited about. (And did I mention I'm an old geezer who doesn't get excited about very much these days?)
UPDATE NUMBER THREE: Yikes -- I just passed 124 hours playing this game when I received a trophy "Halfway Through" or something like that! That suggests that the single-player game here can consume 250 hours of your life, delivering the thrills of driving, flying, shooting bad guys, and blowing up the government installations of an evil dictatorship! All for under $20! What's not to like here? And I haven't even tried the online game...
Like another reviewer, I too bought this and God of War 3 around the same time. Finished GOW3 on a single weekend and haven't played it since. Don't get me wrong GOW3 was great but no where near as addictive as Just Cause 2 (or as big).
Almost every conceivable action sequence you can think of is in this game. I've played through almost every action movie I've ever watched (that didn't take place in space)! I've been in all manner of chases (foot, car, boat and air), jumped from exploding skyscrapers, from exploding cars, from exploding planes and from pretty much anything that can explode. I've fought with gun toting ninjas and destroyed countless strongholds with anything from guns to run away cars to attack helicopters. Heck I've parachuted from heights that would make Superman queasy. I surfed on a freaking jet! I've never done this much in a single game before, and I'm only 28% done! Honestly this game is longer than most RPGs I know.
On the downside, the game can be frustrating. I STRONGLY recommend playing on easy/casual. Not that its hard, it's just frustrating having to restart a mission when you die, and you will die quite a bit. I really wish that the health kits were easier to find as there's nothing more irritating than running around looking for one while the bad guy's chopper is shooting at you.
The story is pretty good, though I can't really comment much on it since I haven't actually completed the game (and by the looks of it, I won't be finishing it anytime soon). The voice acting is atrocious, seriously it's almost painful. Plus I hate the way the cutscenes are fragmented. For instance a mission will start with one cutscene showing you approaching the person whose gonna give you the mission, then it goes black and loads another cutscene showing you getting on the vehicle that will take you there, then another cutscene loads with you being briefed in the vehicle, and yet another cutscene loads with you arriving at your destination. This happens for many of the missions.
These are very minor problems of an otherwise outstanding game. Honestly the love put into this game shows. This game is ridiculously fun and I highly recommend it.
P.s - You can swim and dive too! I know that sounds stupid but I've never played a sandbox game that allowed you to actually dive under water.
