Huge tropical island + guns and vehicles = good times

It may be a double entaunt.
But it is also an extremly overlooked game.
Just Cause has all the guns, cars, motorcycles, boats, parachutes, planes, helicopters, and chase scenes that you could ever want in a game.
Everything is dynamic in this game, which is crazy because of the amount of detail put into this enourmous world. Trees, shrubs, civilians, houses, and rooftops are all here in great detail. You can swim underwater and see fish swimming around in the reef. You can go to a salt refinery and steal a bouldozer just for the hell of it. You can even start up a commotion of killing just to get a helicopter on your tail so you can use your grappling gun to jack it.
Just Cause has has the normal story, just flipped around. Instead of being the good guy blowing away drug dealers, you are basically the opposite. You work for guerillas or drug cartels and kill police and rival gangs. The main missions consists of dozens of activities from blowing up buildings to assassinating the last sap you worked for.
Side missions are found after you "Liberate" a settlement. Basically talking to a guerilla dude that starts the liberation then you run in and blast and police and blow up any barriers you see, eventually raising a flag and taking the place for yourself.
After doing thus, you gain new safehouses, vehicles, weapons, and side missions. It opens up a side mission for that settelment that is basically just a fetch or hijack feat.
This game sounds simple, but once you witness the size of the realistic island, you will see how much went into making this game.
The graphics are stunning and the sound effect are solid. I only had a few problems with this game. Sometimes, I would hear a copter overhead, but could never actually locate it. And most of the time, ladders are clunky and hard to get your guy to start climbing. Very annoying when your trying to do the collect missions.
But overall, this is a long action/adventure game that will take hours upon hours to complete and almost endless side missions and things to do after you beat the main game.
