Just Cause II follows a story of Rico Rodriguez, who arrives yet on another fictional island. Previously being on the Caribbean, now he is coming to Panau - an island in Southeast Asia. This time, Rico has to overthrow the dictatorial regime with its leader, Pandak "Baby" Panay and confront his former mentor, Tom Sheldon. When Rico arrives at the island, he discovers three criminal gangs: The Roaches, The Reapers and the Ular Boys. In order to prevail, Rico has to fight all of the three fractions as well.

One of the key features of the game is speed. This game is filled with adrenaline and ways of doing things very fastly. A wide variety of vehicles such as planes, boats, cars and other. A grappling hook is also available for the player as he can make his character fly around like Spider-Man or tie enemies to each other. There is a big choice of weaponry as well - you can have a pistol, two pistols, auto-rifles or even a grenade launcher! Having an open world map provides a player with experience do whatever they please - flying around, making missions or just discovering new things on the island.

        Just Cause 2 reviews and comments

        The best game in the Just Cause franchise. Not only is it not plagued by performance issues like JC3, it has a much more varied environment, slightly better car handling, a bigger feeling map (not actually bigger, but you travel slower), and many more advantages. Also, it's made by Avalanche Stockholm not Avalanche NYC, so it's clearly superior.

        Just Cause 2 is for me the epic "open-world" game par excellence. The Playground here is the fictional tropical Island of Panau (somewhere in South-east Asia). In the Game it is also worth enjoying the Scenery, be it on the Beach or on the highest Mountain Top in the Snow. It's even entertaining to heat across the frozen Mountain Lake with a Sports Car. I think JC-2 is the Game most of my Friends own (atm: 42 friends already own this game). But that certainly shouldn't be a Quality Feature. :) It's really (everything) very good and succeeded. The Ability to somehow use any Means of transport and also to interact with many Environmental Objects through the "grappling hook" is really awesome And results in many fun possibilities. Even the exaggerated stunt possibilities, such as standing on a flying Fighter jet, give the Game yet another Kick. Even though many will now "scream up," the ease of Use and this absolutely exaggerated Action, I personally like it better than with GTA4. Especially the Multiplayer mod created by the community will do everything again and already make the Game an All-time classic. Here to describe all the Advantages only Of MP mode, the Review would blow up. So, buy Game, install, practice briefly in the SP and then enjoy Sandbox in the MP ... 9 out of 10 Points (2 Points only for the multiplayer mod) PS: INSIDER: TDU2 with Explosions and the Ability to get out of the Car and get into the Passenger Plane ... ^^
        I had a lot of good times with this game...a lot of the same ol' good times. The missions are very repetitive but the open world nature of the game means you get to make your own fun. Def. recommend and supposedly the later iterations of the game only improved upon the monotony criticism.
