the story is the weakest point in this game,its bassicly the main character rico rodriguez a agent from a organization named "the agency" and his friend tom sheldon is gone rouge and he trys to find him in a big island named panau.and soon you join 3 factions which they have unique missions to do and to overthrown the president named "baby panay" which is a midget..yeah a midget >_>..and the voice acting sucks for the most time and the ending is really laughable but exciting and epic at the same time which i laughed a lot,the game trys to be serious but fails and thats why for me this is the weakest point of the game
so for the story
the graphics when you start the game and try to free-roam is just..HOLY MOTHER OF ASS!!! the landscapes and the distance you see is just mindblowing and i couldnt belive my eyes when i saw,this is one of the best graphics enviroments in history of gaming,i dont have any words to explain that,i also like how if you are in the mountains,its snow and on the beaches and the jungle its very tropical..theres also cities and they are cool to grapple and fck around.but the biggest flaw in the graphics are the character models..they look terrible,rico looks decent but the other characters are just like ps2 game and dont fit in the in-game graphics,the cutscene arent interesting except 2 or 3 but they are still ok to watch.
so for the graphics
the gameplay is the best part in just cause 2.why you ask?? because its too much freaking FUN!!! you can grapple to almost any surface in the game and every part in the game,you can use your parachute (which is infinite like in the first one) and actually the more you blow shit up,the more missions and stuff you unlock,the game is phenomenal on how stuff you can do and to make the game 100 percent you have to be a freaking lunatic to do that,the gameplay is great and veryyyyyy fun,the missions are also cool,they arent a lot of mission varieties,but the place is different and you actually dont feel that this game is repetitive,you can drive any vehicle,you can drive the jet bombard planes and also travel planes in airports,theres alot of helicopters and boats,theres also motorbikes,ATVs and alot of trucks,jeeps,sport cars and vehicles that look like utter shit
so for the gameplay
this is the most fun game i have played in years..the story destroyed my experience and i like good stories,but that makes the game really screwed up,the amount stuff you do in this game is phenomenal and its great to see a different sandbox game like this 1..i suggest everyone should get it..its 20 hours long and its actually a blast to blow shit up and do great stuff like in some action flick movies you see in hollywood
so for the fun factor
FINAL SCORE:JUST CAUSE 2 GETS...
the reason it got that score is because of the story and how it progresses and the voice acting sucks,its laughable but trys to be serious whic fails
but the gameplay is very fun and for every tps,sandbox gamer..get this game you wont regret it..its great and very fun to play..
