THIS GAME ROCKS
The people that say this game is bad are wrong. This game is pretty much exactly like grand theft auto. The graphics for the 360 are pretty good. If you like grand theft auto, you will love this game. You do the exact same kinds of missions, the exact same kinds of things with stealing cars and getting chased by the police. This game is not too easy, not too hard. It can be frustrating because whenever my car rolls over I end up blowing up, and in some of the missions you have to keep a car safe or deliver things to people. I think that is the only bad thing about this game. The best thing about this game right now is that it is only 10 dollars. You could turn 2 or 3 games in and end up getting this game. It is worth the 10 dollars for sure, and it should be worth more. If you like shooting games, you should really get this game.
Must have game
This is a must have game for any console. The only sandbox game thats better than this one is Just Cause 2 (Which I would also highly recommend.) There is so much to do on this game the possibilities are almost endless. You could probably play this game for hours and not even notice. But its not just a sandbox game, in fact the story mode is just as fun if not more fun then just messing around on the huge island. There are also alot of vehicles and weapons that are sure to keep you happy. This is a great game and for a great price. Get it at game stop today!
A Steal at $**
The concept may have been done to death, but at least it's making unique games like this one. It's like GTA, except you're on a huge resort island helping guerilla forces and a different drug lord take over. This game feels like you're in an action movie and acting as an action hero. The most satisfying thing you do is latch onto vehicles, airborne or not, and ride with them using your grappling hook and reel yourself in to take the vehicle. Good graphics with nice explosions make this game nice to look at, and playing it is pretty simple. Most of your options for jumping on vehicles and deploying your parachute are on screen when you can do it. The gun play in this game is decent, but it is pretty easy to get through because of its auto-aim system. The story isn't too huge either. Sound effects serve their purpose, but the music can get a little dull at times. The real draw is the crazy action you can do at any given time using you grappling hook and your parachute (which you can use at almost any time). And if that's what you're looking for, then this is your game. Just know that this game's side missions do feel repetitive pretty quickly.
big game lots to do
good graphics for the time very fun to play lots to do with good achievments kinda easy to get them but still fun .
this game was so cool! I loved the grappling hook to steal airplanes, cars, and helicopters. I also like hooking people and throwing them.
I had heard a lot of good things about Just Cause 2
but before I just jumped into the sequel I wanted to play the first
Gameplay is horrible you basically can just hold onto RT and LT the entire time in a mission and pass
characters are unlikeable and Story is Just plain BORING
Voice acting for Rico in this game is Horrible just a real bad job of someone trying to sound like a Antonio Banderas
Only good thing about this game is the graphics
Graphics are amazing but character design is bad too
So Pros: Island
Cons: EVERYTHING ELSE
Just Cause This Game Rots
Im writing this review to tell you to absolutely stay away from this game. Maybe when this was released in 2006 it was a decent game, but to me it is almost unplayable. The game glitches like crazy and i constantly find myself glitched in a wall or randomly blowing up. When a car flips over it explodes and most of the missions have you driving important cars through a bumpy jungle. Early on in the game you get a grapple hook so you can latch on to helicopters and hijack them, well you guessed it, this doesnt reallly work either. Usually you cant get close enough to the helicopter, but when you do the copter usually swerves into a mountain before you get the chance to pilot it. The game also claims it has 250 thousand acres to explore, but most of it is just repetitive jungle that makes it painstakingly long and boring to get around the island. The graphics are decent for the most part when there isnt a huge glitch mark floating in the distance, but the cutscene graphics are terrible. The cutscene graphics look like they should belong on a childrens TV show. The game actually is pretty lengthy, with tons of side missions to complete after the main story, but most of them are the same, where you have to kill someone or retrieve something. Anyone thinking about this game should really look at other options first. Mercenaries 2 is a great game similar to this one, and is much more polished and fun. I guess for ten bucks it might be ok, but youll be pulling your hair out after about a day and returning this game within two.
Just Cause 1 is not a good game at all!!!!!!
The game is really bad the gun sounds sound like a star wars. Boring, i will never ever recomend it.
