Just Cause 2

   Heres the review of the lovely, Just Cause 2. For anyone who doesn't know, Just Cause 2 is a free roaming third person shooter. Basically you must cause chaos on a tropical fascist island known as Panua.

You play as Rico, a kick butt para-dropping grapple-hooking American spy! Yes, he is as awesome as he sounds. The story is relatively flimsy as with any open world game. SPOILER. You must find the man who trained you to see if he went rogue then take down the government by helping out gangs across Panau.SPOILER END. So you must do missions for four separate gangs to earn chaos and money. As you do the gang missions new missions called "Agency" missions pop up. These will advance the story along.

 Some amazing features of Just Cause 2 are the infinite parachutes, the grappling hook glove, many cars to drive, many missions to complete, and so on. I say infinite parachutes because as you say, jump off a building you can open the parachute and shut it 9 times before falling safely to the ground, and get this.... with no parachute bag! You also have a arm or hand mounted grapple, you can use this to say fly through the air to a wall or a less conventional way like grappling an speeding enemy car to a building and watching the fireworks!

Unfortunately for me the game's novelty value ran out quick, yes it was awesome to stand on top of a fly plane but seeing it for the tenth time you get bored. I picked this up for 45$ on steam, if the price had been 30 or 25 I would be more happy with the game. Although theres no way to know if you will appreciate some of these features more than me.

Thanks, please comment!
