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.
