Just Cause 2

Releases soon. The first one had its flaws, but it was definitely a fun game if you gave it a chance.

One of my favorite moments from the first: Getting chased by cops as I'm crossing a bridge, I see more cop cars coming toward me from the other side of the bridge, so I jump out of the car, leap off the bridge, and pull my parachute and casually float to safety. Base jumping was so much fun in that.

This game looks awesome; can't get enough of hooking enemies to a gas tank and shooting them up into the sky. Would be killer if there were some competitive multiplayer.

I've been playing a lot of the demo on the 360. Looks great, but I don't think I'll buy it with all the releases this year.

Apparently the island from LOST is in the game, complete with air wreckage and a hatch. Don't fly above the island, though, or your plane will burst into flames. I might have to rent this game now even though I thought the demo was a bit meh.

Is that a simple photoshop or a genuine screenshot? So much win if it's real.

Was contemplating the demo, saw the IGN review of it, and it looks kind of fun. The variety of gameplay looks awesome. But like 1865 said, if that screen is legit, I'll definitely be downloading the demo at least.

And what is that crazy forward motion he does before the parachute comes out? Kind of a wonky looking animation.

And what the heck is up with the creators of the game ripping off lost? Don't get me wrong, I love it. What is their response to this? Is it them paying homage to the series or just flat out ripping them off?

Been playing the demo a bit. It's definitely fun, I'll pick it up down the line when there's a price drop.

Appearantly it's a hidden island in the game... Wow. That's amazing. Man this better not be a tease these creators better come out with a lost rpg game! That is amazing!!! PLEASE creators of JC2 please develop the next lost game!!!!

a whole island dedicated to lost. where you could free roam and do whatever you want. That is just a small island in the game so imagine how big they could make it if they REALLY did a lost game.

Appearantly it's a shout out. No diss.


Also from an article... http://www.vg247.com/2010/03/24/just...st/#more-87105

Some players are even claiming that while walking around the island they can hear the smoke monster’s metallic popping and cracking. If true, that bit’s effing fantastic in our book.



I may have to pick up JC 2 for this.

Having played about 6 hours of it, there are certainly some flaws, particularly in getting used to dual-hooking stuff, but there's simply so much to do that it's a blast. Sky diving from the Mile High Club was a definite highlight, just to check stuff out. My favorite moment so far, though, was when holding down the minigun trigger on a heli, Rico started humming "Ride of the Valkyries". Totally caught me off guard.

Couldn't get into this game. The grappling hook feels like a lame gimmick. The controls in general are really awkward. The main character is basically a clone of Razor Ramon, which is not a good thing.

Unfortunately, just because there's lots to do, doesn't make it good. I give it a 6/10.

Honestly my favorite game of the current console generation. Not claiming it's a masterpiece of game design or writing. It's a game equivalent of a dumb action flick.

But damn is it just so damn fun.
