Thumbs up Just Cause 2 [360, PS3]

The original had many flaws but the game engine environment looked fantastic & it was fun to play.

The sequel is not out until 2010, but this gameplay footage looks superb, especially the parachute & the new grappling-hook moves. I particulary love when he attachs one of the bad-guys to a gas-cannister & later on, shooting from cover on the front-grill of a fast-moving car.

Never played the first after hearing mixed reviews but that looks damn impressive and a lot of fun.

Visually it looked almost as impressive as the Uncharted 2 footage shown at E3

I liked the first Just Cause even with its flaws. There are three factions this time not two and I think the side missions have changed and they are now based on how much damage you can do to a rival faction. So instead of doing the same side missions over and over again you will have more freedom to take on the side missions however you want.

I'm not that bad, there's certainly plenty of gamers on my friends-list that play many more hours than me.

I try to stick to a couple of hours max per evening, through the week & maybe an hour or two more at the weekend. Certainly no more than 20hrs/week max.

The engine for this looks amazing, but they need to have added more variety to the gameplay and more things to do in the world, cos it got dullll fast.

The combat was the poorest element of the first game for me. Enemy AI was dreadful & the game mechanic for taking over camps was incredibly repetitive.

That looks impressive - very similar to Mercs 2 but with far superior graphics. Hope it's got Battlefield / Mercs style destructible scenery.

Would be great if you can take down those massive glass skyscrapers. Gotta love the grapple-hook game-mechanic. I can't decide what's funnier, attaching someone to a jumbo-jet or a gas cannister.

Attaching someone to a jumbo-jet AND a gas cannister, then running to a safe distance to watch it all unfold.

I was watching some Just Cause 2 vids on the 360 last night. If you haven't already seen the Coastal walkthrough gameplay on a big screen TV yet, it is worth checking out even at 700MB download.
