IGN: Just Cause 2 Review

Just Cause 2 is over-the-top and insanely fun. There are some issues in the game's presentation and the checkpoint system is far from perfect, but Just Cause 2 is otherwise a must-play for adrenaline junkies.

Presentation - 6.5
Graphics - 9.0
Sound - 7.5
Gameplay - 8.5
Lasting Appeal - 9.0

I'm pretty much convinced to get this. The demo was fantastic, and the reception is positive. This and Red Dead Redemption should fulfill my sandbox needs.

I bought the game and its awesome. I put in 7 hours today and am only 6% done with the entire game lol.

4Sh0w3495d ago

dammm, looks like yet another game I'm going to have to pick up. My backlog is getting backlogged, lol

jjohan353495d ago

Good enough for me. I'm buying this.

DaTruth3495d ago

I'm buying this game and it looks like fun, but a 9 in graphics. Artstyle is for presentation marks, graphics is not subjective!

The game is not a 9 graphically!

ElementX3495d ago

For a sandbox game, it is a 9 graphically

Great review for a great game. But they really shot themselves in the foot by releasing the game now, after God of war 3 and FFXIII (among others). I unfortunately can't afford this now. I might get it in a month or so.


What an overrated Piece of crap.!!! A 9 in graphics?? are you kiddin me?? After my dissapointment with ME 2 I dont trust in nothing IGN says...

ign is garbage nowadays.


was that even necessary? you jumping on homie like he said something about your mom. chill its a game and an average game at that. funny internet characters.....

nycredude3495d ago (Edited 3495d ago )


what are you crazy or blind? I played the demo and no way this is a fvcking 9 in graphics! Pop up galore! AI is nonexistent and teh game will get boring fast! Absolutely no physics and the shooting is garbage. 8.8? Give me a break!

Not to bring up this same old tired argument but does anyone notice that when reviewing some mediocre multiplat Ign and alot of other BS sites always word things like "There are some issues in the game's presentation and the checkpoint system is far from perfect, but..." and when they review a Ps3 exclusive it always the other way around like "The game looks great, plays great, but..."?

WTF. I hope IGN keeps firing people and eventually hires some real writers.

XDF3495d ago (Edited 3495d ago )

If this game is a PS3 exclusive, I bet you will be jumping for joy. Stop hating on a game because IGN think your exclusives on your console of choice are not up to stuff..cough, cough..WKC, MAG.

This is a SANDBOX type of game, not some linear single player game that you can finish in 8 hours. It is rated against other in its genre, and it look awesome. Bought the game earlier this morning from KMART for a cool $45 sale price.

Be a gamer, not a loser.

DatNJDom813495d ago

You speak the truth about multiplat vs PS3 exclusive. Good to see I'm not the only one that notices that crap. I cant comment about the game since I havent played it. My beef isnt with the game, its with ign and the rest of the "journalists" websites. Grade games equally or dont grade them at all.


Funny how you tell him to be a gamer yet ur name is XDF. "XBOX DEFENSE FORCE" maybe? And lets not go to the exclusive up to par argument *cough* Metro 20 watever *cough*. If reviews are correct, according to your logic, that game is wack. And lets talk about the other game that is supposed to be great, alan wake. after all the videos ive seen on that game, I just laugh at it. Theres a scene where a tractor runs straight at him, and when he gets hit he says ouch and moves back 2 steps. Really????

This is what happens when u get hit by a car:

First of all you don't even have the game.Secondly this is one of the best looking sandbox games i have ever seen. Thirdly, you act like ign is the only site that gave this game a high 8, check metacritic. IMO this will be the dark horse of 2010.

gameplay is fantastic. Mercenaries 2 and Far Cry 2 slept together, and Just Cause 2 is the result. That's what it reminds me of.

ryano232773495d ago

Yeah Merc 2 was the 1st thing that came to my mind when playing the demo.

iceman063495d ago

is what I WANTED from Mercenaries 2!!! I played the demo about 20 times and finally got the game. It is like a summer blockbuster movie. It is all action, little plot, and just plain FUN! I didn't expect some deep and overriding story. I simply just wanted to blow sh!t up!!! This is virtual stress relief! Loving it!

ThanatosDMC3495d ago (Edited 3495d ago )

Does it have co-op? I'll buy two, if it does.

Cajun Chicken3495d ago

S**t, that looks fun. Rental this week, me thinks!
