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

I wish I had known how bad this was before I bought it.
Imagine playing GTA, only really boring and a "plot" that makes no sense at all
It's a very interesting game. It's different from every driving and shooting game I've played. I definitely think everyone else would get a kick out of this gamePublished 8 months ago by Alpha Foxtrot 1
While Just Cause 2 is way better in every category, the original Just Cause is still entertaining -- though I will concede that it's a very dated game now. Read morePublished 16 months ago by Horowitz the Philanthropist
