Outside of a few nonsensical glitches in the game like the one I mentioned (of which is more than likely well known) game play is pretty solid once you get your keyboard mapped well. One fatal flaw is turning on "decals" in the Advanced Video settings --this will crash your game so turn "Decals" off and you're good to go. Seems to be a memory leak (concerning the "Decals" debacle) that never got patched, but there could very well be a mod floating around somewhere that solves the issue, but have not investigated the existence of such just yet.
The game (online game code) activates with the Steam game client if you hadn't noticed while reading the requirements upper right of it's ad. Game comes with quite a selection of parachutes and a few other things as DLC at no cost with the Steam activated online game code. There is an online multiplayer mod that is available on Steam's store page for the game (which is free of charge), a fairly decent player base (IMO) and roughly 30+ achievements.
To explain what Just Cause 2 is like is a bit hard. You are essentially put into the definition of a sandbox with one goal: Chaos. You can destroy military bases, zip-line almost anywhere and parachute off a balloon club floating in the sky! In this game the possibilities are truly endless.I would recommend giving this game a shot as there is no way you cannot love it.
Sounds like a blurb for a superhero game, right? Well, Rico is actually a mercenary hired by the U.S. government to destabilize a despotic regime on the island of Panau that the government finds undesirable. You start the game with a wrist-mounted grappling hook and unlimited parachutes, using them (and anything else at hand) to cause "chaos" which progresses the story...which is to cause more chaos! After the first (rather easy) mission, you are set free into a vast, multi-biomed world of over 400 kilometers and may enjoy the island's many opportunities for more chaos at your leisure. Or you can just use your grappling hook and/or parachute to sail around the terrain and taking in the beautiful gameworld. This is the type of game that heads most lists of "best open-world games" year after year. Just Cause 2 is a gaming experience to be savored.
For one, nothing you do has any purpose. There's a paper-thin plot that becomes more and more ridiculous as you play, but most of the missions that further the plot are simple "capture the base" or "shoot X person" missions. They could call it "Just Cuz 2" and it would be an even more accurate name. At a certain point I simply stopped listening to the explanations before missions because of how worthless they were, and you know what? I missed exactly zero of the plot, confirming just how pointless the "why" of what you're doing truly is.
The main draw of the game is probably the world's size or how you're able to hijack pretty much anything. Hijack a helicopter with another helicopter? Surf on a fighter jet? Why not? However, the world is so empty and devoid of life that this quickly becomes old, and since calling the missions monotonous would be doing a disservice to monotony, you're left with a game that has no redeeming aspects.
If you're looking for a game where you can do some crazy stuff in 10-minute bursts, Just Cause 2 could very well be your go-to game. However, if you expect a plot, characters, or anything beyond a big place to drive cars in circles around, you're going to be incredibly disappointed. Even the graphics, while occasionally pretty thanks to the landscapes, are let down by sub-par character models with textures that would be unacceptable for a game several years older than it.
I finished the game, hoping that something toward the end would redeem it. I only wound up regretting having wasted both my time and money. There are far better open-world games out there than this.
I recommend this game if you are the kind of person who played GTA IV just running around blowing things up and flying the helicopters.
This game has some great mods, and some really fun missions!
One major con is that there isn't multiplay... Let me correct myself: There isn't multiplayer - YET, multiplayer is being developed by just two guys in Australia, they have some weekends that they have beta multiplay just to keep testing it and working out the bugs i guess. In multiplayer, which is currently hosted from only one server (it can handle the players, and doesn't lag at all), can hold up to 1800 players (i THINK, i know it's over 1k for sure).
This games map is about 385 square miles. compared to GTA IV at only about 30 square miles.
