Got this jc2 and mafia2 the other day. Have not started playing mafia2 yet- well I did install and test it mafia2. JC2 is sweet tho.. After you do the first few missions it opens up- or mostly anyway.
IGN: Just Cause 2
The more I play just cause2 the more I get use to it 3rd view etc. the more I like it. It is a lovely game does not seem short either. Cars etc. are not easy to drive- turning keys are slow to respond. I do ok with choppers, planes are hell tho I mainly fly them upside down or something.
** I think my old 88 vid card does pretty good 4x aa 12x af- medium shadows- high detail shadows- high quality water- high object details.. I think my mouth would water with a better video card- ha ha.>

I tried 1 of the races it was using a prop plane, I crashed and burn about 5x and gave up and went and got a chopper after I noticed it said I could use anything that flies. Has over 100 vehicles in the games. The water and swimming is awesome.
The more I use the grapple the more I get use to it it can be fun. I love to use it and get air born and pop my chute- base or sky diving is cool too. Think I will be playing this 1 for a long time. I can not find anything that says or shows open missions, other than icons on the pda screen. Guess that is all there is? I am helping the roaches take the ship yard now, they stopped said snipers, but I have been all over everything killed all bots I can find, I can find no snipers or anything else, maybe it is bugged. So I stopped playing for a bit. I do not care to read a walk through, but if I can not figure it out my next time in guess I will have too. I figured out how to disarm the breach charges etc. Got a few upgrades.
I like being up high or in a chopper then I can see stash boxes blinking laying around etc. The military choppers are awesome. Figured out from pda to blow up everything in areas I capture to get 100% etc. It will take me a few times playing to really learn it maybe. Might not ever find all the goodies tho.
To look at it other than being 3rd view it reminds me of far cry the island etc. It is a cool game I am happy with it.. I like how rico looks wet after swimming or it rains, most games do not do that, codwaw did or kind of. To glisten when wet looks more natural.. A lot of stuff is destructible- trees what ever- its a cool game..
