I'm playing this game, hanging from the tail of an airplane, and I jump to a helicopter and kick out the pilot. My son asks, "Why did you do that?" And my answer is, "Just cause."
The whole game plays in this manner- do whatever you want- steal a car, steal another car, drive it off a cliff, swim to a boat, parachute off the back of it, etc etc. The fun factor in this game is a solid 4/5. It reminds me of the GTA series, only the terrain you cover is much larger. I'm used to massive game worlds, like in Morrowind and Oblivion, yet the size of this world is almost intimidating.
I've played for about 15 hours; I've completed six of the main missions and forty of the side missions. Now, I'm putting the game down and starting something else. Seriously, the game may be TOO big.
Overall, I'd rate the game a 3.5 out of 5. The world graphics are beautiful; I love how all the vehicles have loose handling, yet they all have unique traits. Some are great going over hills; others have superior top speed, and so on. And the side missions are fun- at first. Before long, they're all the same. I'd have liked more variety.
I think that's the problem with this game- you end up doing too much of the same thing. After stealing hundreds of vehicles, and liberating so many enemy strongholds, it gets kind of old. Other complaints include horrible character models and animation, and uneven collision detection, especially when driving through jungle areas.
Still, you can get this game at quite a discount now- I paid $15 for it, and it's well worth that price. Great casual game, but not much depth.

This game has an extremely large, totally open world. The main problem I have with this game is that it is TOO big. Because they elected to have "Safe Houses" in which you could save your game and respawn after you die, the gameplay is a little bit frustrating. For example, you can drive to a mission point for a good ten minutes, get there, die, and then have to start back over driving another ten minutes. The safe houses themselves are too far away from each other, as there are only about forty or so on this island that has at least 100 settlements that need to be liberated. Which brings me to my second point: the settlement liberations, which are a main part of the game, are all TOTALLY IDENTICAL, except for minor details, like how much the road bends or how far the road blocks are from each other. Much more fun (and Frustration) can be had by liberating cities. Unfortunately, there are only maybe 6 cities in total. Totally the opposite of the liberations, the side missions and main missions are totally unique and, even though I have been playing this game for a good 4 months, I still occasionally stumble upon a new type of side mission.

The story itself is pretty well done. You are Rico. You cause crap to happen. Bad crap. You are an expert in "regime-change", a term used a good fifteen times throughout this game. The other main characters you encounter along your journey are each unique, even though only maybe three character models were created for those you have to kill.

This game is in no way realistic. For example, you can steal a car right in front of the police, and they won't care. However, if you bump into another car in the car you just stole, the fuzz will be on you like white on rice. Cliches aside, the physics are totally unrealistic.

I knew I liked this game after jumping out of a helicopter at about 15 thousand feet, freefalling AFTER the helicopter (with clouds rushing by), grabbing onto the falling helicopter in freefall, and getting back and flying off again with about 1500 or so odd feet to spare. :) The glide ratio of the parachute took some getting used to (it's much higher than typical skydiving parachutes), but it's for the best since it allows one to travel really far under canopy. Fun stuff.

If you like playing around with a parachute this game is a good time. :)

This is one of the most amazing games for the Xbox 360 in terms of its graphics. The enviroment is expansive and the most realistic I've seen for most 360 games. It just makes you want to "get in" the game...amazing graphics. The missions are quite easy to understand and most missions are fun to do. It's an open enviroment so you can literally go anywhere on the map even off road. There are tons of vehicles to steal from civilians, gangsters, and even cops and the military. I have drove in the game numberous cars, trucks, motorcycles, ATV, boat, helicopter, an airport buggy (those that haul the luggage bags) and even a bulldozer I found in a field.

You'll love this game if you like adventure type games and doing missions. You can built you rep with the local guerillas and druglords and shoot cops and government officials. Somethings I found was that the screen gets jaggy when I move the screen or camera really fast, maybe that's just because I have it set on 1080i on my HDTV. However, the characters looks smooth, much like the ones in Dead or Alive game. Because of the gorgeous graphics I rated it a 5, but after a while you might get bored of running around all across the map to get to a certain location or do a mission. Other than that...spectcular game!
