Just Cause 2 – what a game!

Rico Rodriguez being as epic as ever!

Thanks to Joeslife101 telling me what a great game Just Cause 2 is, I played it and within the first 5 minutes of playing it, fell in love! It has the good aspects of the original Just Cause with some upgrades with the fantastic graphics – so vivid. I must admit I did get stuck with the grappling system, it has changed dramatically from the first one plus I’m now playing on Xbox not PS2. The vehicles feel much more realistic, the island and guns feel better thought out and the Storey-line and missions are grittier and more believable. I’m not saying the first one was bad, and it wasn’t, in fact it is one of the best games I’ve played but, what a step has this game taken! You are again Rico Rodriguez, who again starts free-falling down and having ‘little’ shoot-outs with the odd enemy, sound familiar? As you go through the game you find and gather more money, vehicle and armour parts and earn chaos (by blowing stuff up). You can buy weapons, explosives and vehicles with the money. You can upgrade them with the vehicle and armour parts. The settlement or now stronghold take overs are harder due to miniguns, tanks and a lot of armed guards! The army bases are harder due to a colonel you have to kill who is better armed and protected than the previous game. This is a great game, on par with other shooters I have played plus you can drive vehicles.

Just Cause

Just Cause a great game!

Another great game I got for PS2 was Just Cause, made by Avalanche. Like ‘Grand theft Auto’  you can roam around a beautiful 1012 km square island. You’re a secret agent, Rico Rodriguez working for the ‘Agency’ trying to start a revolution against a corrupt President. You start of the game by getting dropped onto the Caribbean island of San Esperito. You can jack a total of 89 vehicles to fly, drive, sail and generally destroy them. Each vehicle varies by speed, durability and of cause if the have guns or not! You skydiving, parasail, car-jack, base-jump, and shoot you way through the intense 21 missions and 300 side missions to lead a nation to freedom. There is a wide range of weapons from your average pistol to rocket launchers on an army jet. This is in my top three PS2 games and should be in yours!
