What is a person to do when a friend disappears in an island nation that, through a recent coup, has become unfriendly to both yours and his nation? If you are Rico Rodriguez the answer is to grab some guns and start hunting for clues in Panau. To help you explore the 400 square miles Tom Sheldon may be hiding in, you have access to over a hundred vehicles, weapons for any occasion, and your trusty grappling hook.
Just Cause 2 is an open-world, action-adventure title that allows you to do just about anything you want. You can BASE jump, surf vehicles (including airplanes), grapple just about anywhere, and all while explosions go off around you. Then you can play the missions and put a purpose to the chaos you create. Naturally the content of this game has earned it a Mature rating for blood, violence, and language, as well as drug reference and sexual themes. If that content is inappropriate for you, then chances are this review is, too.
Released four years ago, the question now is if we should return to Panau or should it remain just some island in the Pacific? Time to find out.
