Hiya peeps, i bought this on saturday morning at 9:30 AM and what can i say, its really really fun, i've racked up 16 hours on it just this weekend.
the amount of stuff you can do is litterally endless and the various millions ways to cause destruction is amazing.
the story line and cutscenes really are paper thin in this so no need to waste time on actually wondering why your doing all this, but i don't see the need for a fully intergrated and well thought out story as it's more about boredom killing with unrealistic moves and crazy out of this world stunts.
your imagination is the limit, ever fancied towing a car with a plane well now you can. ever fancied hitting a massive ramp in a car jumping onto the roof and going crazy with a rocket launcher, well nows your chance.
even better if you have a ps3 or pc version, you can press start at any time and then selct video capture it has 2 modes 1 is 30 seconds of filming for those crazy quick stunts or you can set it 10 mins and do a movie style action sequance, then simply click and upload to youtube in a flash to show off your moves.
the controls on this game feel so easy you'll be sky diving, driving and causing chaos in no time.
the environment is beautiful and alive however there isn't that much traffic and pedestrians around so you may have to get creative with the military goons instead.
the map is huge to say the least alive with many towns, villages, cities and military bases ready and waiting for you to rain down the destruction.
theres not a huge amount of guns to mess around with but that doesn't matter to much as you have a handy grapple hook which can easily dispatch foes left right and centre, espescially if you use the environment, such as attaching a guard to a passing car and watching them get dragged away to their death.
this game embodies nearly everything i wanted from GTA 4, where as GTA 4 was a huge dissappointment to me and felt like a step backwards, i feel just cause 2 has recaptured the fun that san andreas brought us but now its in HD.
like open worlds, like chaos, like screaming foes and big explosions then buy it, it's the most fun you will have for a while.
