Gamespot:"There was definitely something about an ultranationalist. And oil...there was definitely oil. A government conspiracy, maybe? Frankly, while I'm sure Just Cause 2 had a plot, I'm not so sure it was one really worth remembering. Not that it made much of a difference when I spent most of the time attempting to grapple onto a moving helicopter and surf it to the ground in an ill-advised attempt to grab fifteen minutes of YouTube fame. That's the thing with Just Cause: it's never really been about the story, or any of its characters. If the game had just said "hey, you're this super-strong muscly guy with wildly improbable grappling hook skills, and here's a bunch of awesome stuff to blow up", I'd have been just as happy."
