Nevertheless, the poor acting along with the confusing plot are easily overlooked in favor of the chaos and destruction on-screen. This year definitely proves itself a year of sequels, and Just Cause 2 stands proud on the list. No sandbox game has...

What Just Cause 2 lacks in depth of story and characterisation it makes up for in zany fun. If you looking for being rewarded on every level for crazy stunts and gratuitous destruction, you’ll love it. 8.6/10Print this pageUser reviews (0)Share...

Just Cause 2 is a beautiful but flawed game. It is an incredible sandbox saddled with a terrible method of interacting with it. It is only mod which saved the game for me - without them, I would never have bothered to finish it. Panau is a...

Just Cause 2 is a sandbox-style action game. That might make some people run for the hills, but bear with me. The title comes our way courtesy of Swedish developer Avalanche Studios and Eidos Interactive labels, which were published by Square Enix. It...

Every so often, a game comes along that shatters the status quo. A game that challenges norms, rewrites the rules, and does a bunch of other things that can only be explained with cliches that don't really mean anything. Just Cause 2 doesn't do...

While most of the stuff I’ve listed so far is pretty much capable of destroying any hope you have on enjoying a game, JC2 weathers the storm purely thanks to its over the top vibe that’ll lead to many "OMFG Did you see that?" moments. For...

Just Cause 2 might be my new favorite sandbox style game. Sure, it lacks the destruction of last years Red Faction: Guerilla, but for open world gameplay on a large scale, there's nothing on consoles or PC that can touch Just Cause 2 at the moment....

Open-world action games seem to go through cycles just like game consoles themselves do. Rockstar Games comes out with a new Grand Theft Auto that sort of resets the genre and raises the bar, and then other developers spend the next several years...

While its insane stunts and action-packed firefights ooze their own brand of explosive charm, Just Cause 2 falls victim to an unwieldy mission structure and unfortunate lack of variety....

Striking out in a divergent direction is definitely an advisable move if you're going to differentiate your game from the rest of the pack in a crowded genre, and since Just Cause 2 is yet another entry into the ever-expanding open-world...

We look back at the first Just Cause in an only slightly sarcastic spirit of fondness. Riding the crest of the go-where-you-want, do-what-you-want wave, it presented players with an island of unparalleled beauty: its glittering seas stretching far to...

The original Just Cause was a sandbox-style action game that had a lot of really cool elements to it. Unfortunately, the game also had its fair share of issues, keeping it from being the revolutionary experience that it should’ve been. Now,...

I haven't had this much fun with an open-world game in years. Just Cause 2 is over-the-top and insanely fun. There are some issues in the game's presentation and the checkpoint system is far from perfect, but Just Cause 2 is otherwise a...

Tracking one guy down in an area this size is no small feat. The islands of Panau are big, the official blurb puts it at 400 square miles (about the size of Hong Kong and just a bit bigger than Just Cause 1). Fortunately you can enlist some help....

The Just Cause 2 Demo is out now on steam, and it gives you a timed 30 minutes in which to cause as much mayhem as possible and to try and unlock some goodies. Once the 30 minutes are up you’re treated to an advert and you have to start over from the...

Just Cause 2 jsem původně chtěl jako další "kvalitní" hru dirigovanou Nvidií zcela ignorovat, ale nakonec mě velmi slušná zábava této nenáročné hry utvrdila v nutnosti napsat...
