just me, or is there an extreme lack of just cause 2 talk in the forums? i know the first wasnt that great, but theyve had plenty of time to make the sequel not suck. anyways, i find this game to have some of the better graphics on the pc (havent tried a console demo if there is one). i know people will run in and say it doesnt look like crysis, but the scale of this game is staggering, and it still manages to look pretty decent. anyways, here are a few pics of the pc demo, maxed out with 4xaa on my computer. sorry about the sizes, i dont know how to link them smaller,lol.

The game has AMAZING draw-distance and a great art-style. I'm definitely anticipating it.

I'm excited enough about it that I have the game preordered. Loved the 1st on PS2 & I'm sure I'll love this one as well, so a great purchase for me.

The game you haven't played or even tried a single bit of automatically sucks just because you say so, makes sense.

demo good fun, but i think i would get bored. story seems awful, and whilst perhaps it is the best sandbox yet, games need more than that to be great!

Jumping is too floaty for my taste and feels awkward but I can see myself having some mindless fun with the game. Will buy it when it gets cheaper.

The graphics are great. I'd call it the consoles' Crysis. As far as gameplay, it could be better.

Just played the demo on PS3 (turned out PC version requires Vista or 7). At first I was a bit thrown off because it uses the god awful quincunx anti-aliasing and also it didn't explain the controls well, but once I got into it, it seemed like fun. The fighting is over the top, you can eat a s..tload of bullets without blinking, but it's OK, the movement is fun, because of the grappling hook and the parachute, and it definitely gives you the freedom you'd expect from a sandbox game - I grappled on a chopper and also managed to land a two mile parachute jump on a moving car :) (almost accidentally). Seems like MUST CHECK :) for sandbox fans.

Played the demo and I'm worried it could get old fast (ie. very gimmicky) but it's hard to tell without any solid missions etc. to play.

In a world of GoW3, Alan Wake, Final Fantasy, Halo Reach I would say Just Cause 2 is getting fairly decent hype. Most people on this forum look like they had a good time with the demo.

Man. I hated the demo, but everyone else liked it for reasons that seem perfectly in line with those I might have. It's baffling.

People that are taking this game seriously are doing it wrong. It should be thought as a cheesy B-class movie with over the top action and bad voice acting. The demo is tons of fun. Ill pick it up when its cheaper.

It's very fun to destroy things and traveling around the island is a blast (The grappling hook integration with movement is BRILLIANT), but the actual enemies and combat still suck. I'm betting on a 7-7.5 score.

Not really my cup of tea. I imagine it'd make a good Spiderman game. That's what the game reminds me of..... Spiderman with guns which kind of sounds good to me.

It looks good and sounds ok too. Its the bad gameplay that kills it. Grappling hook is fun.

Yeah, but the grappling hook is so hard to use that you can never get that stuff to work 90% of the time...or at least I couldn't.

I was not so sure after first playing it, but after playing through it a few more times I became hooked. The sky is really the limit and it is only as fun as you make it. You are given a beautiful sandbox with varied locations and all of the tools, weapons and vehicles you could ask for. Tell me that having this kind of freedom to complete a mission is not made of win:

Oh. Well you are entitled to your opinion. I liked the graphics. Call me crazy, but I think it can actually be nearly on par with Crysis (PC Version of JC2 of course).

I was really excited for it, until I played the demo. The gameplay is really spotty and does not flow at all. It takes no skill to shoot someone because theres massive auto aim on this game. The only way you die is from the way the enemies cheaply spawn out of nowhere right behind you, or when some wierd glitch happens.

also,

The draw distance(from wich you can view everything) is absolute crap. When driving you can see the grass appearing out of thin air only 40 feet infront of you(keep in mind i set all the settings to highest possible). Also, the controls are frusurating. Whenever I move my mouse, there is a huge half a second lag until I turn(keep in mind i tryed putting down all the settings and it didn't make a difference)

game sucks do not hype it

liberty71441
no it doesn't the game rocks!!! Have you played it. Wait let me guess , its a multiplat so it must suck huh? yeah system wars mentality. This game rocks and the only reason people around here aren't talking about it is because the first game wasn't that great and its multiplat. If this game was exclusive you better believe this would be talked about. This game has fun, something that open world games like gta4 were lacking in imo.. This game map is huge... its like a freakn country (compared to gta4... this is the size of map i wished oblivon was.) I am having a blast with the game, its just so fun blowing things up, it has a "feel" to it. And the parachute grapling hook combo travel is amazing. Plus there are over 100 vehicles, cars , bikes, boats, helecoptors , planes, and you can hijack them all. Want a bike use your hook to reel the driver off as you jump in and steel. It has the most fun carjacking in any game. And when you go to de seat a enemy driver there is a small qte so its not instant (civilian is though). Its a fantastic game that deserves more praise!!!
