TitanReviews test how big the world of Just Cause 2 really is by flying to the top of the world and then falling all the way to the ground. The time it took is pretty mind boggling though.
This game is a fantastic time eater when there's no other good games coming out. I come back to it pretty often. What a fun game!
i've been playin it this entire weekend
I played it on PC back when it released. I was impressed by the graphics.
I played in Religously for about a month. Took me 75 hours, but I got the platinum! Awesome game.
Uh, I hate those kinda games (like this and GTA) where you can spend huge amounts of time just fooling around while your brain turns numb... And in the end... You've just literally wasted hours upon hours doing absolutely nothing worth anything. It ALWAYS feels sad at the end, I realize that now.
you must be new to gaming....
DISAGREE! Maybe you should stop gaming. Wasting time is what gaming is for. Except, you are supposed to enjoy it.
Just Cause 2 represents all the fun factor that should have been in GTA 4. It was like playing San Andreas all over again, except with grapple hooks. Fun game, though. Plus, it had Youtube upload support for the PS3 version. I put up a few videos on my Youtube. (Pimpnmatt) Yeah, I know I need to change my Youtube username. hahaha
Looks like a big world... Well, maybe not so big, but pretty good for a game.
ya just looking at the world makes me want to buy the game
It's bigger than like 10 GTA:San Andreas put together... It's seriously that huge. Pretty good game to kill time, spent more than 30-40 hours just roaming and destroying stuff. And the graphics are good as well.
I wouldn't buy it full price. The world is big but it can seem very empty at points. My main problem with it is that you have to do sidequests or travel around destroying random things in order to unlock each new story mission. This would be fine normally but it takes a lot of side questing or a LOT of destruction to unlock each new story mission. The side quests are very cut and paste too. Imagine if GTA made you do two assassination or race side missions before every story mission. The story missions are amazing though, real James Bond stuff. It's a great game that's been waaay too padded with needless monotony.
it's a decent game. i have it on PC and it looks ridiculously good maxed out.
Map Size comparison: Just looks at the size! GTA SA: 13.6mi² JC2 : 400mi² but there is bigger! LotR Online : 30.000mi² Elder Scrols 2 - Daggerfall : 62.394mi²
Am I the only one amazed that the game engine can support that much vertical space?
no ur not haha. I sat the controller down when I made this video cause it felt like forever. I went and got a drink and I was still falling lol
Just Cause 2 kicks so much ass. It needs more love!
and that's a guy who hates on everything!
He should burn up from a fall like that.
He should of accelerated until he achieved terminal velocity.
I think he surpassed terminal velocity lol
Lol you can't cross terminal velocity if you are a free falling object... On Topic: I might buy this...been hearing good things
your acceleration isn't what changes. it's the velocity...
@GodsHand How do you have a disagree? N4G is full of idiots. How can you not understand terminal velocity? You won't burn up unless you go so high where there is NO air (IE space, which is why comets and the shuttle heat up, cause they enter the atmosphere at THOUSANDS of miles an hour, not 120mph [average terminal velocity for a human body]) and accelerate to a GREAT speed before hitting any air, then once you start to hit air (you are already way past terminal velocity), you start to slow down, however, the air is ripping past you so fast, you would probably get your clothes ripped off and limbs broken and cheeks ripped off.
JC2 and physics just don't add up very well! the devs said it themselves, JC2 is not about realism. it's about mindless fun! - and CHAOS!
I'm hoping there's a Just Cause 3 in development. Just cause 2's success should mean the 3rd game will be well polished.
That's good news. Hopefully some little issues get changed that kept this thing from being great instead of just really good. The one thing I thought would have improved the combat was just an uncharted style cover system, and the ability to buy more than one weapon or vehicle at a time. I always hated going through that dumb animation every time I wanted a new item. You want a shotgun two pistols and a car? You've gotta watch that animation 4 times.
JC2 was amazing. I would love to (though it would never happen) see a james bond game with that engine.

Wasn't interested in this game before i saw the video
You'd have to be insane to try to attempt 100% in this game. Ive been playing it for like forever and i still dont have it lol
Yeah, it is really hard. Besides, i don't have the patience to go searching for every thing in this giant map.
my friend has 15 hours into the game and he's only got 11%. Maybe thats cause he sucks or something idk.
81 percent in about 65 hours.
fortunately Platinum only requires 75% and that's also doing A LOT of stuff already!
Oh good I was worried he was going to survive that belly flop! But he's like a freaking flying squirrel in this game--he falls really, REALLY, slowly. Also, doesn't he not suffer fall damage if you grapple onto the ground before hitting it? I bet if he'd pulled that stunt over ground, he could've just grappled down and walked away! Plus, there's gotta be some crater in the game that's bellow sea level, which would actually make the fall longer--highest point to the lowest one.
Silly things like that make the game even more fun for some reason lol.
Is this Blaine the mono?
Is that a riddle?
No...Blaine is a character in Stephen King's Dark Tower books. Just wondered if you were a fan. If you haven't read them, they are great. The first seems strange but once you have read the 2nd book, you hooked. Peace. PS Blaine doesn't come into the story until book 3 (there are 7...and one supplemental comming)
Guess I should've just said "yes"! From The Wastelands: "[...] even the dead would run from Blaine, if they could."
I don't think he's falling too slow...2.5 minute fall is around 30,000-40,000 feet for skydiving, and the view from the plane seemed about right. And it always looks like people are falling slow, even though they are not.
Just Cause 2 is a very underrated game IMO. It has good graphics and gameplay, its just the story is quite weak. It also takes many hours to complete.(I have played around 40hours and only around 40% complete). Its a fantastic game to just put on and have fun.
Underrated is what I would also say. Also I think it looks great especially the world more than the characters. What would be great would be a military sim type game in a world that size.
story is quite weak you say? the story is garbage at best! comparable to Mercenaries 2 and I think Merc2 is better executed story-wise compared to JC2! great things about JC2 is doing other stuff. the story feels like a filler at best!
meh game with great graphics.
The biggest flaw in this game... no wing suit.
